Anyone got any pointers to industrial quality 150W LED floodlights?

I have to fit EIGHT of them to mobile towers and the basic cost of £350 each sort of makes me squint......

Looking for a discounter rather than a cheap'n'nasty solution.

TIA

Are you paying for them? some one must have specified those particular lights for a reason, quality?

No, I'm not paying (maybe I'll have to purchase them and invoice the client though) but they are for diesel lighting rigs used in a local quarry. I have four sets to refurbish each with four lamps and they want LEDs in place of the current tube devices - one set has already been done.

Sorry if I am missing the obvious, but if you are not paying for them why would you want to "not pay" less for them?

If they are happy with the ones they have now, why not use the same again as:

1) They are paying for them

2) The new ones will be exactly the same as what they have got, so there can be no grounds for an argument. I.e wrong colour temp, not the same physical size, not as bright etc

Fair point - but I don't consider just paying whatever someone demands for a product, just because someone else is paying for them, to be the right thing to do. I will at least try to save them some money. It's called 'customer service'. Ever heard of it?

I was not being or trying to be sarcastic. Sorry if you thought I was being so.

I am trying to save you grief from the customer complaining that the new ones are a different colour or smaller or bigger etc than the ones they have.

They are happy with what they have got so why not buy them more of the same. Realistically what would you be hoping to save them in terms of money, £5-10 / fitting would not be worth it even if there are 8 to be had, since by the time you add "your bit" on (still no sarcasm) in the over all scheme it would not be that much. now if you could save them £50 / fitting yes, that would be worth it, but that would only end up taking you down the "cheap road" which no one wants to do, which to me takes us back to where we started, they are happy with what they have, they are happy to pay for them, buy them some more of the same.

The only other option I can suggest is to buy multiple fittings with lower wattage that cost considerably less / fitting, but I would assume that for what ever reason (I don't need to know) that this would be impractical.
