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 an angled 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. For hands-free use, this product has dual swivel hooks...one mount at the top and the other low down on the body. This unit has a rocker style switch and has a 25 foot 16/3 SJT rated cord.
