Get the biggest bang for the dollar! This is not a toy grow light. It is a true 3 lamp high output It offers the following:(A) Two sets of 3 bulbs for Growth and Blooming It’s two fixtures in one! It comes withthree warm tone bulbs likeHPSfor Blooming and three natural white bulbs like Metal Halidefor vegetative Growth.The natural white bulbs simulate the mid morning sun using special synthesized rare earth phosphors. Unlike old fashion halo phosphate based bulbs, these advanced bulbs produce blue light at the extreme of the spectrum while not depriving the plant on the deep red light most efficiently used for photosynthesis. This blue light is necessary to prevent stem elongation that makes plants spindly. This light spectrum is much like that of metal halide (MH).When plants are full size, switch to the warm tone set of bulbs with extra deep red light to supply extra energy for blooming. The warm tone bulb produces a spectrum that substitutes forHPS.(B) Save hundreds of dollars on energy. (C) Extraordinary light output that is enhanced with mirror-like reflectors.(D) Great multi-purpose light for full scale production that's cool enough for close in starting.(E) The sunlight simulating growth bulbs make it a great shop light in the offseason.(F) Alternative Choice of BulbsIf you don't want the Bloom and Grow bulbs that ordinarily come with this fixture, we offer Aquarium Bulbs, Blue Lights for HPS Supplementation, and perhaps the very best lights for plant growth: the Narrow Spectrum bulb. (check our store listings for these alternative bulbs.) For more information on this great Narrow Spectrumbulb, read the discussion entitled "Why pay for light your plants can’t See ?"Bright Great Grow Light This is an electronic high output T8 3 tube, 4’ fluorescent grow light with Mirror like aluminum reflector. It makes 10260 design lumens with standard HO lamps. But runs very cool, so you can intensify light output by putting the light right on top of the plants.It is: 1.2 times brighter than 175 w metal halide ; Six times brighter than a 30 w compact fluorescent; Four times brighter than a shop light with two 40 watt Cool White Deluxe bulbs; 2.2 times brighter than a standard T8 -2 bulb 4’ fixture that others call "high output" ; 2.5 times brighter than the phony “500 watt” FluoreXWhy lose $169? That’s how much you’re sure to lose if you use 175 watt metal halide instead of this light (see notes). Save even more on energy, buy two of these instead of a 400 watt metal halide. Quality WorkmanshipIt is factory new. It includes a 120 volt power cord. There are ample attachments for chain. The commericial grade electronic ballast carries a 5 year free replacement warranty from the manufacturer. It has a high ballast factor that generates 120% of rated lamp output.The hi-tech mirror like reflector is constructed of lighting grade high reflectivity anodized aluminum. This boosts light output and it is specular. This means it can be formed to direct light straight down. The computerized ray tracing results of the reflector are outstanding. You need to be careful using this material. Misapplication will cause the light to scatter to the side of the fixture, worse than if you had used a white reflector. Butthis is much better than a white reflector. Thesurface of a standard white reflector randomly scatters the light. These are ok for a shop, but can't deliver the ultra high light levels for growing. Also it CAN'T RUST .For shipping purposes it has a protective plastic film on it. It's 4' long. We also roll the long edges over so you don't cut yourself. You could Save a lot of money if you couldgrow plants in the DARKWhen I first went into Business , the best advice I ever got was “it’s easy to sell as long as you are in business to help people.” We seek to serve you in part by divulging all sorts of good accurate information.There is confusion and misinformation about how much light different sources generate. Below is a comparison. Notice how High Output T8’s make more light using less energy than the much more expensive compact fluorescents. Also notice that not all T8 fixture are the same, not withstanding that many are often labeled as “high output” when they are not. The amount of light that you get out of a fixture varies with the ballast used. It’s not necessarily the rated output printed on the lamp.

Our customer’s really like our lights because they are so amazingly bright! Based on word of mouth reference, we have shipped lights all over the country. Our competitors often see our lights and start saying that their ordinary output fixtures that they are selling are really high output too. What a dirty trick! It has happened over and over again. I feel sorry when I meet people that feel they have been cheated. A good part of our business is making rebuild kits to upgrade lights that are too dim.What’s worse is that there is a new kind of shop light on the market. This consumer grade fixture makes exactly 50% of the rated output of the bulb. As one of our distributors who bought one to try said : “I only put one light bulb in it, because if you put in two, they will only run at half power.”Here is the difference between normal and high output T8 fixtures. The T8 bulb was first developed in Europe as a 36 watt bulb. But when it was brought over here it was called a 32 watt bulb, but a standard fixture only drives the lamp at 27 or so watts. So what does this all mean? A standard commercial grade T8 fixture will give you only 85 to 88% of 32 watt rating. The residential grade shop lights give you only 50% to 70% of the 32 watt rating . Our high output fixtures give 120% of the 32 watt rating. Additionally, there are different grades of bulbs, for instance our sunlight simulating 5K bulb makes an additional 9.6% more bonus light than a standard daylight bulb.Choice of BulbsIf you don’t specify, we will shipyou six bulbs. You will get three warm bloom bulbs and three 5000K grow bulbs. However, we will ship you any combinatin of six bloom, 5000K grow, or 6500K-Daylight Aquariumbulbs for the same price. We prefer using a synthetic rare earth 5000K bulbover a 6500K bulb in the vegatative growth phase. The 5000K bulb has higher usable energy content while simultaneously producing extreme spectrum blue light to prevent stem elongation. It actuallyhas more blue content than ordinary 6500K lamps. We also offerthe following specialty bulbs: (1) Narrow Spectrum lamp,(2) BLUE BULB for Supplementing HPS Lighting, (3) Actinic Type, and (4) 12,500 K- Deep Sea Blue.If you desire a specialty lamp instead, then the fixture will come with one bulb. We sell more specialty bulbs as another eCRATER item or eCRATER store item for $9.50. If you need help, we can point you in the right direction to buy more.On occasion, we also offer thisfixture with 3 specialty bulbsas a seperate eCRATER item. Here are detailed descriptions of the various specialty lights:Use Narrow Spectrumbulbs: Why pay for light your plants can’t See ? Continued....Plants are green because they reflect green light back. Yet conventional grow lights (High Pressure Sodium (HPS) , metal halide (MH) and conventional fluorescents were first developed for humans. Because we see green light the best, these sources are very heavy in the yellow-green spectrum. What a waste! Standard fluorescent grow lights aren’t much better. They still generate lots of green light so house plants look nice. A common misconception is that the ideal color of light for plant growth is sunlight. Much of the light spectrum of sunlight is actually wasted by plants. Again, plants are green because they reflect the green light back. The popular "Grow & Show" wide spectrum type of plant light sold in stores may make foliage look nice and green. But they are not efficient at making plants grow. You can verify in a standard encyclopedia that plants use red and blue energy for photosynthesis. On the other hand, Optimized Narrow Spectrum fluorescents produce light exactly where chlorophyll is most sensitive. University Studies prove much higher fruit production and growth rates. (Documented below!)North Carolina State University conducted experiments with radish, lettuce, and milo to determine the optimum composition of wavelengths for optimum growth. Dry matter weights were measured. These "optimum compositions" are the basis of narrow spectrum grow lights.The same experiments compared the performance of narrow spectrum grow lights, wide spectrum grow and show lights, and a mix of incandescent and cool white fluorescent light. The narrow spectrum fluorescent was definitely superior at inducing plant growth. Radish root Milo (a grain plant)Wide spectrum grow light 130 mg/plant 240 mg/plantNarrow spectrum grow light 240 mg/plant 665 mg/plantThis was confirmed in later experiments comparing wide and narrow spectrum grow lights. Gloxinia plants grew faster and had 50% more blossoms than plants grown under wide spectrums. Corn, lettuce, and tomatoes showed 50 to 60 % higher dry matter production than the same plants grown under wide spectrums. Tiny Tim tomatoes blossomed 1 week earlier. A week latter they had 6 blossoms per plant, while the plants under the wide spectrum grow lights only had 2 blossoms per plant.The tomato plants also produced more: Ripe fruit Immature FruitWide spectrum grow light 187 g/plant 415 g/plantNarrow spectrum grow light 340 g/pla
