The AL4000 automatic portable floodlight system has an optional automatic start/stop feature that can be set with a timer or used with a photocell. The tower reaches 30 feet, rotates 360 degrees, and has a spring-loaded pin to automatically lock the tower in place. Light fixtures plug into a weatherproof receptacle box. A retractable power cord automatically recoils into its protective sleeve to prevent damage when raising, lowering or moving the tower. Control panel is located inside the unit, protecting the main and branch circuit breakers and hour meter. It is powered by a 10.5-hp Kubota diesel.
