High-efficiency LED lights
  • Full-spectrum 6500K daylight provides more realistic (less artificial-looking) illumination, and is easier on the eyes
  • Instant-on and immediate full intensity, no warm-up or cool-down, never any waiting
  • 50,000-hour LED lifespan reduces maintenance, never replace a light bulb
  • Industrial-grade fixtures are heavy-duty, rugged and extremely durable
Revolutionary power system
  • High-quality Perkins® industrial diesel engine, 3-cylinder, water-cooled
  • Engine properly sized for smaller-wattage load of high-efficiency LED lights
  • Engine size prevents wet stacking, ensuring higher efficiency and no waste
  • Fuel consumption measured at just 0.24 gallons per hour based on independent testing (other light towers use about a half gallon or more)
  • 225-hour run time before refueling
  • 54-gallon steel fuel tank has extra-large filler neck
  • Electric fuel gauge includes a light for nighttime viewing
  • Control panel features elapsed hour meter and circuit breakers for lights and main power
  • Convenience outlet for auxiliary equipment has a dedicated circuit breaker
  • Convenience outlet provides more power output than conventional light towers, up to 2400 watts
  • Ultra quiet  — just 58 dBA at 30 feet, 68 dBA at 18 inches
  • Automatic engine-shutdown system protects engine from damage due to low oil pressure and high coolant temperature
Unique features
  • Fixture-stabilizing transport straps provide built-in protection for lights
  • Torsion axle for smoother ride, reduces stresses on light tower components
  • Fully enclosed equipment bay protects controls, engine and all other components from the elements and unauthorized access
  • Eco-friendly integral spill containment, eliminates the need for a “duck pond”
  • Compact design is easily maneuverable during transport and takes up less space when stored
  • Hinged maintenance panel provides unimpeded access to engine, generator and electrical components
Additional features
  • Steel enclosure protects components from the elements — powder-coated, lockable, and weather-resistant
  • Two outriggers and five leveling jacks provide stability
  • Control panel features elapsed hour meter, 120-volt GFCI receptacle for powering external equipment, and circuit breakers for on/off functionality and protection
  • Diesel engine includes electric fuel pump for a steady supply of fuel, and glow-plug preheat system for increased service life and improved cold-weather starting
  • Automatic engine-shutdown system protects engine from damage due to low oil pressure and high coolant temperature
  • Two gull-wing doors with latches and locking handles provide access to controls, fuel tank, engine and electronics
  • Snow hoods protect air vents against moisture and debris infiltration
  • Integrated fluid containment pan prevents ground contamination if leaks and spills occur
  • Auto-start/stop system turns the light tower on at dusk and off at dawn
  • Warning beacon flashes when fuel is low and when containment is detected, and a sensor triggers engine shutdown before a containment breach can occur
  • Dual electric winches make deployment even easier
  • Cold-weather start package includes oil pan and block heater, as well as a built-in GFI junction box
  • Sound attenuation reduces ambient noise level
  • Large external emergency-stop button for quick, manual engine shutdown
  • Oversized forklift channels installed under frame, all-welded construction
  • Off-road trailer package features a wide-stance torsion axle and 15‑inch tires to improve mobility on rough terrain

LED lights
LED technology effectively replaces outdated HID flood lights. By design, LEDs have a more controlled, highly directional light distribution, focusing light rather than sending it in all directions. The result is more efficient use of light energy and much lower power consumption. Wanco Long-Run Light Towers optimize the benefits of LED technology for brilliant illumination and extraordinary fuel savings.

The telescoping tower assembly is compact when stored, yet rises to 30 feet when deployed. Two winches raise and extend the mast easily. Power- and hand-operated winches are available. In the upright position, the light tower mast rotates 360 degrees, and each light can be aimed individually. The lights can operate at any height.
Power system
The power system features a rugged Tier 4 diesel engine and high-quality two-pole generator. A 54-gallon fuel tank provides extended run times of up to 225 hours between refuelings. An electric fuel gauge provides an instant read of fuel level, and is lighted for easy viewing at night.
Exceptional power efficiency and fuel savings create a smaller carbon footprint than other light towers. Low fuel consumption not only lengthens run times, it greatly reduces refueling and maintenance costs. Additionally, built-in fluid containment protects against ground contamination from leaks, spills and drips.
Wanco created a unique innovation that greatly improves serviceability. For complete access to the engine, generator and electrical components, Long-Run 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. Gull-wing side doors may be opened while the maintenance panel is raised, further enhancing access.
