    It's an in house design. We used a brighter light than normal for the show because the building is bright and we wanted it to be stand out. The idea is for ambiance, but it would throw enough light for function in the immediate area

    Shop and equip looks awesome. Congrats. Any more info on the hooklift? Any special bodies?

    Also can you share any more detail on how you lit the columns? I noticed a hole saw sitting nearby

    I think the hooklift brand is Stellar with 60,000lbs lift. We bought a couple of barn door style bins, one dump truck (tailgate is like dump truck) bin, and one flat deck. The guys love dropping a bin on the ground and dumping everything right into it when excavating. Its much better to be eye level with the top of your bin when loading with skid steers.

    The lights are an in house design. We have changed them since that trade show to use LED strip lights. I like the soft light better than what we used there. We can also use any other colors. I can't give up too much about it. We might patent the design and start manufacturing them for our suppliers in the off season.
