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. 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 6 foot 18/2 SJTW cord.
