Might be that my woodlands work isn't the same as your digging work, possibly closer in so the lighting problem doesn't exist.

Lamps easy enough to waterproof, gorilla tape or similar over the back and a good coating of silicone grease on the lamp and connector. Being so mucg cooler than halogen makes waterproofing easier. Who cares if it looks like a boots display stand?

I do tons of woodlands work. You're right in that multiple small lights give better distribution than two massive ones, the way forward is still multiple purpose built worklights.

Come on mate, that is even cheaper than your scheme. Proven technology.

That is what you call cheap as peanuts Gra, but I wonder how long they'll last, buying cheap not always lasts they'll look good on the Drema though

not as bright as the eight 48 watt-ers I put on her though Pete!
At 2.50 a lamp they'd make useful infill around a machine though and are as disposable as a bulb at that price
