Manufacturer: Wanco®


Not just another light tower, Wanco light towers use state-of-the-art technology to achieve superior illumination — exceeding government regulations for worksite illumination. With four 1000-watt light fixtures atop a 30-foot variable-height mast, Wanco light towers shine a uniform light pattern across the entire job site.


Light fixtures

The Wanco Light Tower’s high-output fixtures provide the most illumination for the wattage and a more uniform light pattern, virtually eliminating light pollution. For faster job-site setup and less downtime, each light fixture can be aimed independently without the use of tools, and the lights stay in place once positioned.

Light tower

Light Tower WLTC Work AreaThe telescoping tower assembly is reinforced for stability and safety. Two winches raise and extend the mast, with both power- and hand-operated winches available. The light tower mast rotates 360 degrees, and the lights can be operated at any height, eliminating the need to move the trailer frequently.

Power system

The power system includes a choice of low-RPM Tier 4 diesel engines and high-quality four-pole generators. A 30-gallon fuel tank provides extended run times of 60 to 70 hours between refueling, depending on environmental influences. The translucent polyethylene tank offers an instant view of fuel level, eliminating the need for a fuel gauge.


Light Tower WLTC Travel PositionWanco has created a unique innovation that greatly improves serviceability. For complete access to the engine, generator and electrical components, Wanco light towers feature a hinged top panel that rises with the mast when maintenance is required. No other light tower makes engine access this easy. The gull-wing side doors may be opened while the maintenance panel is raised, further enhancing access.
