    I'm pretty new to this but was wondering the difference is in the classes. Levels of brightness? What should us plow boys use or better what does the law want us to use? Michigan if it makes a diff. Looking at new mini bars and just wanted to know.

    Thanks Chris:waving:

    I don't believe it has any bearing on the end user unless it has to be NFPA compliant, KKK compliant, DOT cert, etc etc. It's not related to the brightness of the light though.

    The law wants you to use an amber light mounted on your roof.
    Vehicles engaged is snow remover MAY use an amber light.

    If any of your strobes are bright enough to blind an other motorist they are illegal.
