Vertical Mast Radar-Speed Trailer


Download Brochure

The Wanco Vertical Mast Radar-Speed Trailer features a telescoping tower that rises to 11 feet with side-by-side speed display and speed limit sign on a sturdy frame. Both the electronic LED speed display and the regulatory speed limit sign are visible over Jersey barriers and other obstructions. The display shows vehicle speed in bold 26-inch characters, warning motorists to slow down by flashing their excessive speed. The sign has changeable speed limit numbers. The tower is easily raised and lowered using a hand-operated winch. When raised, the tower rotates to face traffic without moving the trailer. When lowered for transport, dual cradles support the sign frame.
