The Wanco MTO Oversize Message Sign for Traffic Control-WMTO is a larger version of our full-size matrix signs, specifically designed for use in Canada. Approved by the Ministry of Transportation, Ontario (MTO), this large sign displays messages text, graphics or both. The MTO message sign uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve the exceptional visibility and legibility. It has a telescoping tower assembly that rotates 360 degrees along with a solar panel array that tilts and rotates independently, allowing for optimal positioning of both the sign and solar panels.

We welcome a call or email (Equipment Quote Request Form above) to revisit a price (even if one is posted) based on your freight location, qty, options, payment method, etc  as all off these factors effect a final price. Please obtain another price or two on the parallel model and options  prior to contacting us so you can be prepared to recognize the savings and move forward with a commitment to save you hundreds, if not thousands. Most of our larger equipment posted prices (unless otherwise noted) are based on a wire transfer, include a freight allowance and customer offloading.
