I get mine from and Ebay store Great prices, quick shipping and good customer service.

I know most people won't care and think we're just "pimping out machines" but I paid less for 3 30" bars 2 20" bars and 4 cubes than it would have cost to outfit the DX235 with 4 halogen lights above the cab and 2 halogen to the rear from Doosan. Out of curiosity I asked our salesman what the lighting option cost and it was $1400 his cost and about 1800 installed. I paid 1090 for all the lights to outfit each excavator and one for my pickup as well, I still have a spare 20" I might put on the Bobcat but the light I need the most is on the excavators, so I may just sell it to a friend. The tint also makes sitting in the machines 8-13 hours a day way more enjoyable.

Those 30" bars put out 14400 lumens... an average halogen headlight on a vehicle is around 1300-1700. So there is 2.5-3x the light with these LED bars and they last 50,000+ hours and handle vibrations better. Perfect for construction equipment.

Once I figured out the machines are already prewired for the lighting option I can install a bar in about a half hour and it runs off the factory switch. The bars don't draw anymore amps than the halogen pieces do.

I imagine when that 770 shows up on site, it gets a lot of attention. Real looker!
Yeah they don't stay nice forever, esp where I end up taking them and boulders go where they want. It will be nice to look back at pictures before they get scratched up. Can't say I didn't try.

I'm hoping the wax will help to keep the machines cleaner between washes and also help clean the grease off.
