Yep thems the ones.Ozzie, are you meaning the led stips zip tied to the underside of the spray bar? Ive wondered about these too. Does one switch turn whole boom width on or are the light strips plugged into boom section valves? I put an led strip on the back side of the clear tank sight tube. Very handy with treflan at night. 5$ of ebay. Worked well for about 12 months
check out AppliMax Spray Nozzle LightsWest Australia.
Burando Hill were pushing led nozzle lights last year but now seem to have gone quite on it. Not even on their website. I can't even find them elsewhere on the web.
Were they any good?
Interesting gavdalbs, do you get full lighting of every nozzle or is there lesser "disclosure" towards the edge of the beam? I am a 50 something farmer and my retina's are not what they used to be. For me HID and LED sure beat "sliced bread" for the best invention!I just installed led spot lights on the under side of the boom about 10cm in front. Cheap ones. Might need another set close to the outer section to get proper lighting but they work well and you only need to clean the dust off 2 or 4 lenses not 72 little LEDs if working in dusty conditions.
What about mounting a cheap led flood light under each tower? Would it not achieve the same thing? I know you'd have the issue of the shadow created by the riser etc but it'd be a heap less work. Costing would depend how many outlets per tower and how long each hose is etc but just food for thought. Love the idea of the LED strip if it can be attached to the hose well (I have a feeling a few rolls of 100 mile an he tape or zip ties may be the order)I was also thinking about these light strips to tape them to the back of airseeder secondary hose, I know I can see product going through the line with the sun behind me so the LEDs should show it up in all conditions.
2 aren't enough to get the whole 36mt boom. When I get the next 2 in i'll have really good coverage. A side benefit is that when the boom is folded I'll have few extra lights for traveling on the road. It really does help in spotting blocked nozzles.Interesting gavdalbs, do you get full lighting of every nozzle or is there lesser "disclosure" towards the edge of the beam?

I found these LED Strip Lighting | Farmscan Ag Pty Ltd
as a budget solution or the Aplimax mentioned could be the Rolls Royce way to go with LED strips.
But the idea of maybe 4 LED spots is appealing esp when summer spraying in dusty conditions.
