If you were making bulk purchases, and were to pick just three models of light fixtures (including bullets, floods, etc.), based on cost, value, function, style, etc., which would you stock up on?

Curious about the choices from each person here, even though I can predict a few.

LOL!

OK well they are not the top 3 but they are big sellers. If I could only take 3 lights this would be it.

Probe w/ 20w BAB - Weathered Brass (WB)
Small bullet that you can use for uplighting and downlighting. Use Lenses for beam and intensity adjustment.

Starburst-WB
Comes w/ both a Ushio 35w FMW and side mounted 35w Astro Brite 10K HR XELOGEN
Utilize the MR 16 for more pop, lenses to change beam spreads. Side mounted AB35 works great for wall washing and w/ MR16 for uplighting.

Buy them in 6pks and get 5 lights same price and a FREE Satellite Hub.

You could argue the Stellar and and Apollo Star as well should be in here.

I would have to pick 3 fixtures nearly identical to Joeyd's. they solve 97% of landscape lighting needs with a few bulb changes.

I'm actually shocked to see Eden said the Hadco CUL7. We were just told about a month ago that we buy more of those fixtures than anyone else in the country (At least that's what our rep. said)....made me think that nobody else was using them. Either way, we buy all 3 of the following fixtures in bulk.

Hadco CUL7
Hadco CUL16
Hadco IL336-AL

Hadco CUL7, Kichler 15350, or Copper Moon CM700, if I was going to buy anything in bulk it would be a Copper China hat for a pathlight. Yes you are correct our use is low in the pathlight category. On average 1-3 per job. We don't really stock anything, but we do always over order several fixtures and make order corrections from time to time to keep stock at or near zero.

I agree with the china hat pathlights. Nothing wrong with keeping your inventory down either....gotta keep that overhead to a minimum.

I'm very surprised by the cul7 myself. They still use the glass to hold the top on? I just think that that is dangerous with kids around. I do like the screw on top though...better than wehn copper moon was making it for them for sure.

These posts promoting other lines are very hurtful to Joey and myself and I wish they're subside. Thank you for your consideration.
