Internal Storage Light Towers


Download Brochure

Wanco Internal Storage Light Towers feature the same excellent quality and functionality as our standard diesel light towers, and they have a wide-body equipment bay for storing the lights or other equipment. The light fixtures include quick-connect wiring, making it easy to remove them for storage or reinstall them after storage. Options abound with your choice of light fixtures, tower, premium diesel power plant, control system and more.

For fast job-site setup and less downtime, each light fixture can be aimed independently without the use of tools — and the fixtures stay in place once positioned. Choose LED, metal halide or balloon lights when specifying your light tower. All lights feature quick-disconnect wiring connectors.

You can select our laydown-style tower for its low towing and storage height, or our vertical tower for ease of deployment with a single winch or an optional hydraulic lift. Both types of towers feature a telescoping design, 30-foot height and nearly 360‑degree rotation even when fully raised. The lights operate at any height.

A choice of industrial diesel engines and four-pole generators ensures reliable performance. Output power and convenience outlets are included for running auxiliary equipment. The high‑efficiency engine and 30-gallon fuel tank provide extended run times between refuelings — up to 120 hours with Wanco’s exclusive LED light fixtures. Performance enhancing options include a dusk-to-dawn auto-start/stop system and a cold‑weather start package.

The equipment bay is a rugged all-steel cabinet with two gull-wing doors that can be locked closed to protect against unauthorized access. The cabinet includes fixed mounting for the light fixtures, or it can be used for storing equipment.

Wanco Internal Storage Light Towers boast trouble-free operation and exceptional longevity, hallmarks of the Wanco brand.
