Volvo Construction Equipment has developed a light tower option for its PF6000-Series large asphalt pavers. This optional feature can be either factory-installed on any Volvo PF6110 tracked paver, PF6160 or PF6170 wheeled pavers, or it can be installed in the field on PF6000-Series models currently in operation. The light tower option consists of two assemblies that are mounted to the frame of the paver behind the operator’s seats. Both assemblies can plug into the paver’s electrical box outlet. Each assembly frame consists of two 1,000-watt metal-halide lamps for a total of 4,000 watts of illumination. The four lamps and the mounting arms are adjustable to enable the operator to illuminate areas needed for an efficient paving operation. The assembly mounting arms are raised and lowered by a hand-operated winch and measure 156.8 inches (3,982 mm) high when extended and 125.3 inches (3,182 mm) when retracted on the wheeled pavers. The assemblies on the PF6110 will rise to 155.6 inches (3,952 mm) from a retracted height of 124.1 inches (3,152 mm)
