23kW Light Tower


Download Brochure

The Wanco 23kW Light Tower is by far the most powerful light tower on the market today with more surplus power than any other brand. Based on our powerful mobile generator, this industrial light tower lights up your work site and has plenty of power left over for all your field office needs. Industrial-grade construction ensures durability, longevity and reliable operation, while low fuel consumption lengthens run times, greatly reducing refueling and maintenance costs.

The Wanco 23kW Light Tower optimizes the benefits of LED technology for brilliant illumination and extraordinary fuel savings.

Tower and Lights

The telescoping vertical tower is compact when stored, yet rises to just under 25 feet when deployed. A single winch raises and lowers the tower. Light fixtures can be aimed individually without tools, and the lights operate at any height. The tower rotates even when fully extended.

Wanco’s industrial grade, 480-watt LED light fixtures are extremely durable and incredibly bright, providing over 230,000 total lumens. The LEDs have a 50,000-hour lifespan that equates to over 10 years of use, significantly reducing the need for maintenance and lowering overall cost of ownership.

Power and Controls

The 23kW power system features a rugged Isuzu Tier 4 final diesel engine and an oversized PMG alternator for 300% motor starting capacity.

The system includes a Deep Sea 7320-series digital controller with a sophisticated level of features and functions. The easy-to-use interface provides for manual and auto-start modes with event logging. The controller’s heated and backlit display continuously shows operating conditions, including alerts and engine and shutdown status.

A double-wall steel fuel tank is integrated and includes connections for attaching an auxiliary tank.


Exceptional power efficiency and fuel savings create a smaller carbon footprint compared to other diesel light towers. Low fuel consumption not only lengthens run times, it greatly reduces refueling and overall maintenance costs.

Integral sound attenuation provides superior noise reduction — just 59 dBA at 23 feet (7 meters). Built-in fluid containment protects against ground contamination from leaks, spills and drips.
