Gosh I could tell stories. Best is we had a three level house but the basement walked out on an amazing secluded patio where my daddy poured the bricks himself. My brother and later my friends would clean their bags there and dad would be unhappy “pulling those weeds” between the pavers. Gosh I wish I would have saved some of those seeds now!
Now they have to visit us It’s going to be cold.
Happy cannaversary @TLC congrats
Happy anniversary here!
Well looks like going to pick up 2 hlg 550r v2 lights tuesday. Guy in oklahoma selling 6 for 200 each. Giving me 2 for 350 since driving 4 hours to pick up. This guy will ship. I will update after i getem and pass info if anyone wants 1 from him. I will be able to validate condition when i get there. Oklahoma has a TON of gear. Lots of growers getting out. 350 for 2 is a steal. @MeEasy @JaneQP
Wow that’s a great deal
A steal is a understatement you are dam near stealing them hahaha one heck of a deal thats for sure great find hope there in great condition and genuine
Yea hope good. Got photos. Another retired midwesterner like me. Texas/oklahoma might as well be 1 state. Good values out here. Fewer scams than a lot of areas. Think ill grab 4 if they are solid.
Was just thinking. If they suck…time is not wasted. Say it with me please…CASINO!!!
Just be careful there’s a few out there that are fakes, if you have a microscope I’d take it and look at the diodes… this gives you an idea of what to look for but I’m sure if you Google “how to spot fake Samsung diodes” you can find many pictures and articles on how to spot them
Hlg-550 should be pretty easy to identify heatsink and connector covers hlg uses. Beyond that its kinda hard to tell. The early knock off rspec boards you could tell by looking at 660nm leds. Would look just like a qb but have same epistar reds as mars and vipar.
Should be good. Most of us old guys never try to get full value. Money loses its value as time becomes more important. I will know immediatly after meeting the guy. 30 plus years retail corporate management gives me good instincts. Procurement. I WILL read the article. We were chatting and he is funding a new ac unit for his house. Makes sense why selling cheap for quick turn. Taking 4 of them if valid. BUT guys and gals…Oklahoma is loaded to the gills with gear for sale. Not a great place to grow commercial even though legal to. MANY MANY growers closing.
Why are they having such a rough time up there?
Weather. No water. Humidity. Greenhouses get flattened by wind gusts. Get 70 plus mph. T-storm straightline winds hit 100 plus. Just a crappy farming area. Great for cattle. Go north 200 miles and amber waves of grain.
Didn’t think about all that!
