Hello lightbar-experts and others!!


I am maybe going to buy this Whelen led-lightbar but I don´t know what model it is?

Can anyone of you tell from this quite bad picture what model it is??

It's an LFL bar. Most likely a Patriot but it could be a Liberty. I'd bet Patriot, though. You normally don't see Liberties with complete colored lense kits.

It's either a patriot or a liberty mounted on top of a Dutch Ambulance.

What makes you say it's Dutch? European, yes, but could be any of a dozen European countries.
 
Now I have this bar at home, and it was not a LED bar as I first tought, it is a strobe EGDE!! Model 9M26


I have never seen a this thin EDGE before! I guess it has got to be a newer model than the EDGE 9000 I have seen before.


I has only two linear-strobes to the back and four strobes to the front.


This bar was used on a ambulance from Finland.

As pimp stated above, it's not an edge... it's a whelen patriot strobe bar.... the strobe version of the liberty that came out a few years prior. I believe it's now discontinued, I couldn't find it on whelen's site.

Ok, I believe you, it´s a Patriot, but you can read on the lenses of the bar "EDGE".


I would like to add some more lights to this bar, do you think there is already inside a halogen flasher from the factory? Or some other flasher, LED?? If so then I would only have to add some lights?


How much better is this 9M Edge bar than the old Edge 9000?? When came this 9M model bar first out?


Here are some pics of the bar.

These were called the Whelen Edge LFL before the Whelen Patriot moniker came to be.


Now this is just a guess, but by any chance are you from Cromwell, Indiana?

Yep, a Liberty bar says EDGE on the lenses, too.

The 9m has linear 400 series inboard strobes and has a more modular setup for the lights to snap into. Other than that they are similar.
