Wilderness Lighting's very popular Compact 4 LED lights have now been fitted with blue LEDS. This allows you to spray at night with the confidence that if a nozzle is not performing correctly you will be able to identify it quickly. The two high powered Compact 4 lights are mounted onto the sprayer boom to illuminate along the length to effectively highlight each nozzle and it's spray pattern. The contrast in colour of the blue light and the water/chemical from the nozzles makes it much easier to spot a problem compared to using conventional white lights.
