In this episode of SnowPlowNews, Mark Klossner (BOSS Snow Plows) talks about the all new SL3 LED Headlight Systems.
Snow Plow operators work in some of the nastiest winter weather, often times during the wee hours of the morning. During a blinding snowstorm, operators have a lot of stress and strain on their eyes. Eye fatigue can become a major issue to deal with especially after several hours of work. These guys and gals are moving a lot of snow so that travelers have safe passage and when eye fatigue sets in, safety can be a real concern.
Halogen vs. L.E.D. Headlights
Halogen has been the standard bulb technology for years. It casts a yellowish light that doesn’t illuminate the field of vision all that well. L.E.D. provides a whiter, brighter light that’s comparable to daylight. The new SL3 L.E.D. lights from BOSS offer 2X more light than the comparable halogens. The L.E.D. headlights are also 40% smaller than its halogen predecessor. L.E.D. is expected to last 8,000 – 10,000 hours compared to around 1,000 hours for the halogen.
Benefits Of Upgrading To The BOSS SL3 L.E.D. Headlights
Besides the obvious advantages listed above in the comparison, the L.E.D. systems cause less glare, resulting in less eye fatigue for the snowplow operator. The SL3 L.E.D headlights also last longer, and provide a more durable, higher performing, reliable lighting solution for snow plow operators.
Ice Shield Technology is the BOSS solution to ice build-up and these new lights come with that feature as well.
Features Of The Boss SL3 L.E.D. Headlight System
The BOSS SL3 L.E.D. Headlights are an optional feature for their snow plow line. If you currently have the Smart Light 2 (SL2) System from BOSS, then an upgrade will be relatively easy to retro-fit.
- L.E.D. bulbs provide 2X light output with less glare
- Smaller footprint
- BOSS Ice Shield Technology to help prevent ice build-up
- Improved visibility
- Retrofits easily to most BOSS SmartLight2 systems
- Integrated L.E.D. turn signal
