Lights

I have a 3 car garage and I am looking to install some new T5HO lights now that the lift and the jack shaft opener are installed. I am trying to decide between the Raptor1 and the Griot's garage lift. Does anyone have experience with either? I am just getting older and three 100 watt lights the builder put in are not enough when I am working on the cars.
Thanks

My brother is an electrician and does a lot of lighting stuff so I will ask him tommorrow.

I think keeps these in his basement for working on projects in his garage and around the yard. They are adjustable and very bright and can be easily moved outdoors for lighting up the yard during parties, but it seems like you want something ceiling mounted.

My brother said he has heard about them but doesnt have any first hand experience.
He said your best bet would be to contact a local electical supply place to see what they would recommend.

I did a google search and was able to find the lights at lower prices. Here is one site, and a search for the bulbs shows that the 5000K are about $3 each.
