Light Cart


Wanco Light Carts are small, portable and versatile. Their small size and ease of use translate to portability and quick deployment. Ideal for construction sites and other applications, two powerful 1000-watt metal halide lights provide ample illumination for nighttime work. The lights can be aimed independently.

Deployment is fast and simple with a built-in handle, steerable wheels, pneumatic tires and a hand‑winch for raising the tower. The lights operate at any height and each light has its own circuit breaker. The circuit breakers are used for turning the lights on and off. With outriggers deployed, the heavy‑duty steel base and low center of gravity keep the lights and telescoping mast stable.

Wanco Light Carts can use either commercial power or a portable generator attached to the cart. On commercial power, our light carts work outdoors or indoors. When powered by a generator, they are perfect for outdoor nighttime work of any kind. A choice of Wanco Inverter Generators provide portable power and can be removed and used independently.
