Wanted: 175W MV yardblaster « on: August 04, 2022, 10:41:39 PM » Author: thelightingman
I am looking for another 175W MV yardblaster since the ballast in my R175M went bad. If you have a 175W MV yardblaster you don't need or have a link to one on ebay, send me a PM. Thanks!  :mv: :mvc:

That is waaaay too much for what I'd pay for one of those! $100 for a yardblaster ballast??? :o
They are usually priced around $10-$30 on there.

I'll consider it but the thing that is bugging me is that they are selling the shell of it for $50

Yardblasters are quite common on FB marketplace, at least around here. I’d recommend taking a look on there.

Also make sure to check OfferUp and Craigslist, as you're more likely to find one there for a better price than eBay.

Yeah I don't know what that seller with the $100 ballast is thinking. You can get a complete one NOS for that price. They probably lowered the value stripping it down and selling the ballast for $100, the lens for $50, and the head for $50 than just selling the entire thing complete.

I personally won't pay any more than around $40 for a 175w MV ballast, which is the going rate for a CWA one. The one in the second link should work fine. The other cheap way would be to find a cheap one on Offerup or Facebook or CL and take the ballast from it.

Update: I got my R175M working again! It turns out there was a wiring fault in the outlet I was plugging it into and the ballast is actually just fine. I am still looking for MV yardblasters though!
