Metal Halide Haul #2

Metal Halide Haul #2

Click to view full size image

I found a craigslist ad from a local sign company that had replaced all of their billboard lighting with LED statewide. There were multiple large piles of different fixtures and he let me pick out 15 of my choice for 100$ and so I filled up my truck bed.

Some of them had internal ballasts and some were remote.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Should've been much more specific: Any CMH? Any Philips powerballs or EnergyAdvantage bulbs?

Most of these came with a bunch of well used standard MH lamps, nothing special with the exception of one with horizontal burn position curved arc tube.

The Philips CDM330 Allstart lamp seems to be the best performer today that works with the older style probe start ballasts. I just bought some ED37's.
