    Looking for a beacon. I've found some cheap ones around but can't find a place that has any good ones. Any help would be great.

    That is Dave in Woburn. I've dealt with him and he's a good man. Check with him frequently, he always has something good for cheap $$$.

    I got lucky at MHQ. They have a couple locations. 2 Whelen LED mini beacons 36/ea. Most other places where 50-60 dollars.

    This is one of his ads:

    Just call him and ask what he's got. He is right off RT 93 in Woburn.

    Go to him if you want to pay more than you would for new. Old school stuff, way overpriced.

    The duo responder is a bit costly but by far one of the brightest minibars made and made by the best company in the industry. The Osprey is made in China and if you pay $519.98 your getting ripped off as you can buy them for under $100.00 direct from 911Signal.com who makes them as well as several other Chinese companys. I have never heard of accident coverage but no company that I am aware covers their lights against and accident such as the unit flying off the car. All do however come with warning stickers stating that Magnetic mount lights are specifically not covered if they fly off and should not be considered a permanant mount option. Maybe guys who sell the Osprey do but when your making 500% profit I guess thats always an option. I have been offered the Osprey and sent samples by 2 different companies and even though we did not certify the LEDs to any watt rating I can tell you a 1 watt TIR3 is by far brighter than one of the Osprey heads with the same number of LEDs. Many times you will find overseas lights claiming all different wattages when they are actually not even close.

    One thing to look at when Choosing a beacon is the class rating. We have some Whelen $60.00 Beacons but most are not class 1 or 2 rated. Most are class 3 and not considered a primary warning light.

    I found a mini lightbar. It's a Amber PSE 420 dual halogen rotator. Anyone know if it's any good and how does it compare to the Whelen guardian.Found it for $100.

    Not familar with it but for 15.00 more the Whelen is always a good choice. I have a perm mount Whelen LED for 150.00 ill sell you. Its the G9 Guardian.

    would recommend strobes n more to anyone ive bought many products from them and have been pleased by all. they are very knowledgable and their pricers are the best around. just remember you get what you pay for. if you want to be seen than buy the whelen responder.
