Wanco’s Small-Truck Message Signs feature high-efficiency LEDs for outstanding performance and legibility. Common applications include road striping convoys, pothole repairs, snow removal, road sweeping and crash cushion (TMA) trucks.

The full-matrix display can present messages as text, graphics or both. Messages are bright, easily visible and highly legible. Two sign sizes are available — 4×6 feet and 3×6 feet.

For ease of use, Wanco’s full‑color touchscreen controller is redesigned for truck‑mount applications. Most common functions are available directly from the home screen, which also provides one-touch activation of customizable high-priority messages. The controller is installed inside the cab for easy access.

An integrated tilt-frame raises and lowers the sign 90 degrees using an electric actuator, operated from the touchscreen controller. In travel position, the sign and compact frame are less than 14 inches in height.
