This fluorescent work light uses a single 13 watt fluorescent bulb rated at 10,000 hours of use. The amount of light produced is similar to that of a 75 watt incandescent bulb but with a daylight color to it. The electronic ballast provides instant, no-flicker cold weather starts. The handle has a natural ergonomic shape making it a pleasure to hold and use. The cord uses an exclusive 90 degree swivel design making it possible to set the light down for hands-free operations. Further aiding in the hands-free use of this product, are the nylon tipped double hooks. This unit utilizes a rocker style switch and has a 50 foot 18/2 SJT cord.
