AllightAllightSykes Sykes Allight SS18K-12 Super Skid Tower
We understand that for some mining and heavy construction projects, big might not be big enough. So we developed the mighty Super Skids. Robust, durable, heavy duty towers to Mine specification, AllightSykes’s Super Skid Series mobile lighting towers are designed to withstand the most challenging and rigorous mining conditions.
The Skid base allows the towers to be secure and stable in any situation and provides for high wall overhang capabilities.

  • Clean, quiet and efficient Perkins engines coupled with heavy duty Leroy Somer brushless alternator. (Other power options are available on request)
  • Optimised cylinder head configuration for optimum fuel and oil consumption and maximum efficiency
  • Cyclone style air cleaner and earth leakage protection
  • Residual Current Device (RCD) protection, and  RCD main switch installed in generator supply circuit with a test point
  • Circuit breaker installed into lighting circuit and all circuit breakers are fitted in IP 56 enclosures
