    I finally got pictures of the potential "diagnostix" edge 9000 I've been gandering on getting. Pictures show typical model tag, but I see there is no serial number or model number written on it.

    Ecco blaze rotator speeds.

    I make way to many threads, so here's another I have a brand new ecco Blaze Halogen, belt drive mini bar. I got to use it today in a snow storm and it is nice and effective.

    Edge 9000 for 175.00?

    I found a locally selling edge 9000 with a control box, fully working and complete for 175.00 OBO. This is all blue, amber flashers and from zooming in on the pictures, just typical scratches and smudges, doesn't look crazed or terribly beat up. Bar looks straight. She says it works well...

    I found a Jetsonic for sale locally for 200.00. it looks in decent shape, says it has the usual, allies, TDs, rer flashers 4 rotators. This one has the individual motorized rotators, not the chain or gear drive. Would this be like the latest version of a jetsonic? And would you pay 200? It's...

    I found this red StreetHawk for sale local and thinking of getting it. He just took it off his truck and it doesn't appear to be real bad shape from what the pictures show.

    Parts sources??

    I'm finding it frustrating to find domes for my MX 7000 and Vista. Everyone on eBay sells them for ridiculous prices, try almost 700 for two pieces of small plastic. I've checked Galls, Zips.... Anyplace else online or in person to buy stuff for older bars? I need to make mine into amber so I...

    Got an old AreoDynic for free

    Haven't been in here for a while, but to make a long story short, I got these three bars for free from a local Fire Department that were about to toss them in the junk. I got a MX7000, LP Force 4 6000 and a cool AreoDynic that I think was from the 80's. They all work. I want to install the...

    Amp Draw

    I did the math(hopefully correct) and found that just one light(alley) drew 3.48 AMPS with my Multi Meter testing for current. I then added all the lights together at 3.48 amps x 15 lights total for about a 55 Amp draw if the bar was full on. This is a Vista with 5 rotators, takedowns, alley...

    Whelen Val U Bar

    I found an all Amber Val u bar local for sale. It was originally two rotators, but he added two fast star rotators for total of 4 rotators. It has the black cover in the middle, not an all light version. Are these good lights? And worth the 175 asking price? I'm getting rid of my jet strobes and...

    Thoughts on Vista

    I got a cool Federal Vista this week for only 25 dollars in working condition and complete. It has some problems that are not a big deal and I'm going to fix it. Mainly someone rigged it up so just the rotators and front take downs work. It has 5 rotators, flashers front rear, take downs, alleys...

    Measuring amps/watts.

    I have a multimeter. What is the best way to determine the amp draw/wattage of a light bar such as a Federal Vista? I'm guessing measuring the current as the light is on.

    Proper wiring.

    I'm about to finally install my Jetstrobe light bar on my truck. I want to add some grill lights later. I would come off the battery with a circuit breaker and into the control head, then to the lights? Should I go to some sort of distribution box that I can hook in some grill lights later...

    Choosing controllers

    I have an old Federal Signal Jetstrobe light bar and need to connect up a controller box to it, but have not a clue what to get or look for.
