Solar Hire began in mid 2010 with the perception that there was an opportunity to develop a cost effective environmentally attractive alternative to the well-entrenched mobile diesel lighting towers used by numerous industries specifically road construction.
The product gain easy success as the media focused on the looming Climate Change, and the Solar Lighting system was a good match operationally and technically for the industry.
The First Solar Mobile Lighting Towers were dual axle 4 panel construction as pictured below.
Providing Mobile Solar Towers Since 2010
Following this initial success, Solar Hire listening to its customers reduced the overall footprint of our product bringing out the first SLT-3 in 2012.
The lighting towers were used throughout the Hexham free-way project by both companies for new intersections, residential areas and construction zones.
Pictures below highlight the quality finish and solid structure of the tower. The machines tare weight is 1100Kg, able to be manoeuvred on stable ground by one individual. All electrics are extra low voltage 24VDC, air pneumatic mast to a height of 9mtrs with hand held remote for positioning of light fittings through 180 > 360 degree rotation, on / off and home / travel positioning buttons for when required. The lighting tower has achieved NSW MDG 15 compliance for mobile & transportable equipment on mine sites.

- New SLT-3X, 48VDC, 3 panel 990 watts 14 x 150 a/hr 12 V deep cycle batteries @ 43,000 Lm
- New SLT-4X, 48VDC, 4 panel 1200 watts 14 x 150a/Hr 12v deep cycle batteries @ 70,000 Lm
- Under design testing SLT-5XX @ 120,000 Lm and the SLT- 8 which is designed to have lights and 240 VAC power for remote locations.
