The Wanco Balloon Light Cart is a compact solution for your area lighting needs. It lights up large areas with diffused light, eliminating glare and making night work safer and easier on the eyes. Its small size and simple operation translate to portability and quick deployment. Ideal for road work, police checkpoints and more, a powerful 1000-watt metal halide light provides ample illumination for nighttime work. Balloon lights provide diffused light that reduces shadows and eliminates glare, making night work safer and easier on the eyes. They are perfect for night operations by police, fire and rescue, EMS and the military.

Deploying the Wanco Balloon Light is fast and simple with a built-in handle, steerable wheels, pneumatic tires and a hand winch for raising the tower. The light operates at any height has its own circuit breaker for protection. The breaker is also used for turning the light on and off. With outriggers deployed, the heavy duty steel base and low center of gravity keep the light and telescoping mast stable.
