    Has any one used able strobes? If so what do you think? Florawrecker.com has a 4 strobe kit 60 watt on sale for about $160 thanks Patrick

    I don't know about the Able's, but I would go for atleast a 90 watt strobe package. They show up much better in the day time. My local DPW put 60 watts in their pickup and you can't see them for anything during cloudy days, let alone in bright sun. It might just be their set up however.

    Able 2 Products

    Able 2 Products are the best. All my trucks run their strobes and LED / Strobe mini light bars. I had a bad LED unit in one of my light bars that was almost 3 years old and I sent it back to them to have it repaired and they sent me a brand new LED bar, FREE OF CHARGE !!! You can't beat their products or their service !!! :redbounce

    I run 60watt supply to 4 heads.....15w per head is plenty as long as the head is not behind a very tinted or couldy lense

    The truck I saw them in was a town truck, so you know it has been beat. The lenses must be pretty foggy.

    60 watts tend to not show up as good...I run the 90 watt Galileo strobes and they are awesome...
