This fluorescent work light uses two 13 watt fluorescent bulbs, each rated at 10,000 hours of use. The dual body rocker switch means that either bulb can be turned on independent of the other, or both at the same time, for a total of 26 watts of light. With both bulbs turned on, the amount of light produced is similar to that of a 125 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. Built into the handle is a single 12 amp grounded Single Outlet making it possible to power another tool or device directly from the handle. The cord uses an exclusive 90 degree swivel design making it possible to set the light down for hands-free operations. For additional hands-free use, this product has a retractable and removable nylon-tipped double hook located at the top of the light that can rotate 360 degrees. This unit has a 6 foot 16/3 SJT cord.
