Weatherhead confusion


With 400 or 1000 watts Metal halide that will be serious brightness you will really light up the yard pretty nice I have 400 w HPS on one of my shop wall and that thing light up pretty good and I have portable 1000 w MH floodlight as well that freaking bright as well.

BTW the 400's the bulb life will be about 20,000 hours average while 1000 watters MH useally can go 12,000 but I know some can go far as 20,000 hours { if used pulse start verison }

Merci,Marc

Uhhhhh,..... yeah

Run a 1/2 thru bolt thru the center hole and, if necessary, a couple of lags on either side to keep it level.

Check out Rudd or E-conolight fixtures. They are a better product and less expensive.

I kinda thought it might do the job. Just like being reassured.

Electrical is the area my schooling didn't cover well besides basic calcs.
