TruckStar 12-24 Volt LED Flood Light - Clear, Round, 4in., 1350 Lumens, Model# 1492115
Best Product for the Price ...
Regarding Product Versatility, this is by far the Best LED Floodlight that Northern Tools offers for the price.
It is: Shock & Vibration resistant, and it IS Waterproof (even though one review states that it isn't, ... perhaps his/her product has a small/minor defect.) I can say this b/c I use one of mine to submerge under the water (sometimes for a hour) for Night Fishing, to attract the fish towards the light!! Also, it is the ONLY true "Clear" Light vs. the competitors "White" Light, makng a huge difference in clarity at night!! I have two more that I use for Camping, which have completely replaced any fuel-based Lanterns, so now I'm using Clean Energy (as I hook them up to a 12-volt deep cycle battery, and recharge the batteries as needed with a Solar Panel !!) The Only downside would be that it produces 1350 lumens, vs. the 2150 lumens of the competitors (however, it only uses 18-watts vs. 27-watts which is standard for the competitors, and when you're camping, nightfishing, etc., where ever Watt adds up towards the total wattage of any and all other electric products one is using, b/c if you're using Alternative energy as I do (keeping away from a large carbon footprint such as fuel-based things like Lanterns and especially generators), then you must keep track of your battery's limited number of amp-hours vs. the total wattage that you're using, otherwise you will deplete the battery before the night is over!! These are just my experiences with each of the three floodlights that I own, and I could NOT ask for a better product!!
p.s. if you need more lumens, buy two of them!! That will be only 9-more watts and you will have 2700 lumens of bright light, which works out mathematically superior, ... so either way, with this product, you win!!

Efficient and bright
I needed supplemental lighting for my JD compact tractor that was bright, but had low current draw (the alternator output of this tractor is low). These lights fit the bill perfectly; they are quite bright, yet the current draw is low enough that I can even leave them on for some time (haven't really kept track of how long, but 15 minutes plus) without the tractor running. I presently have two lights mounted to the roll bar; one facing forward and one back, which provides a lot of light, but eventually I intend to add two more to spread the light pattern to the sides more.

These lights throw a very wide, extremely bright pattern, I used them (2) for headlamps on a golf cart.
They are very durable and have a very low draw on the battery... Mounting is simple with the supplied hardware, Highly reccomended.

Perfect for Lawn Mower
I bought 3 of these for a new zero turn mower. Mounted two facing forward and facing rear, all on top rail of roll bar. Bracket can be attached with a self tapping metal screw or just taped on with high quality tape as I did. Bought some extra red and black wire and some wire clips with a weatherproof toggle switch, all at Northern Tool. Incredible amount of light and low amps doesn't kill battery. Highly recommend!!

Not waterproof but a good light nonetheless
Bought these to use as backup lights on my boat trailer.
Unfortunately they both partially filled up with water on the first launch. Was able to drill a relief hole a week later and drain them out and happily both still worked! Gave them a second life as docking lights on my boat and are bright with a good beam spread pattern. Recommended for water resistant but not waterproof applications.

These lights were simple to install and are really bright. The pure white colour is nice for mowing in the evenings. All in all, these lights are Excellent.

Great Light for a Great Price
Installed two of these lights on the back of our truck. One higher on the headache rack and one under the bed facing backwards to light up the hitch or just light the way while backing in after dark.
They provide a bright, blueish tint and a good spread. Not too wide, and not too narrow.
I like the way they mounted and the available options with the mounts

TruckStar LED Utility Light - 4in.
I wanted a back up lite on my ATV. I found this one because it doesn't pull that much on the battery, becauseit is an LED lite. It worked out really well. I like it very much.

These lights were purchased to use as worklights on a snow cat for grooming snowmobile trails. We pull a 24 foot drag behind the cat and these lights shine far enough back to see the trail behind the drag. The lights are real easy on the eyes in the flying snow. We have 4 lights doing the work of 6 conventional lights with better results. very pleased...

I put these lights on 2 salt spreaders and wow are they bright. The lights that came with the spreaders worked okay but the drivers said they could use more light. I installed these and now I feel bad for the people who may be driving behind the trucks.
The metal housing seems tough and the wires come pre-stripped and the ends soldered. I am gonna order another 3 if not more.
