What kind of lights are some of you using for work lights at night.

I need to be thinking about what kind of lights that I can put on my box truck. Maybe two on each sides up on the top rail and possibly some above the rear door.

Put led flood lights on the side and back, put them on the truck on top of the box. I am about to do this and have seen many trucks that work at night with this setup. Some put indents in the side of the trucks with the lights, seems like a lot of time and money to do it this way.

Headlamps. Lights on the rigs don't shine into nooks and crannies you need to see to clean. Repairs are easier also. Cabelas brand have been the brightest I have found but switches wear out eventually.

I use them all the time in winter, or even just working on equipment. Always can use more light.

Carry a 15,000 watt generator in the trailer. Swing out brackets from each door has 750 watt lights on each swing out. . Also carry two Honda 1000watt generators with front mounted 500watt tele lites on them. Also have tripod 1500watt mounted lights in the rig.
All we do is commercial work 7 days a week and have no time for residential. All night time work. Running steady till the end of the month and then it may be to cold to pressure wash outside. We then do all the grocery stores all winter.
