hubbel I will get the label info shortly they are in real good shape the place is changing to fluorescent. a few are dusty from being above a dust collector but they are great for a factory or even a garage. if they ceiling in your basement is high enough they can help you get higher.

rofl X2 was wondering the same thing... hmmmmmm

Yes, the mh bulbs do very well in vegetation. They can flower a plant pretty nicely too.

yes dandelions will grow well with these. I do accept anonymous cash mailed in envelopes with no external return address and with ship discreetly if required.

I have been putting them in peoples garages mostly for awesome work lights. 1 in a garage is enough 2 is awesome. they are easy to put in too just and eye bolt and an outlet. I have taken a bunch apart once and made a panel of ballasts then ran wire to the bulbs with horizontal bulbs instead. That worked well and kept the heat down.

please no using these for any illicit things please.

the only 1k watt ones I have are large 2 bulb parking lot type. they are pole mounted and get very bright. Those may be sold already a hillbilly by rockford might be coming to get them. a few of these will do just fine, even better you would not have to have 1k on at once and better light distribution.

Bump, great prices. I once ran one of these over my reef tank and it worked great. Large in size but they're effective. Not to mention a lot cheaper than purchasing a unit off most these sites.

that's a good idea on running it over a tank. If I ever set mine up again maybe I will remote wire a horizontal bulb over it.

anyone need one for their garage? If you put 2 of these in its like daylight and makes night working so much better. make an offer or the junk man is coming

Did you ever find and 250w hps?

07-10-2009, 09:29 AM
ill give ya $25 each not worth much more than that to me since i buy the bulbs new for 30 and the sockets for 1.25 and i build my own ballasts.
