WHEN the Bushranger Nighthawk surprised all-comers by winning our LED driving light comparison in 2019, we couldn’t wait to install a set to the front of our Project Ranger.
The 230mm (diameter) Nighthawks feature a claimed lumen count of 10,800 (effective) and are supplied with spot and combo lenses. Housed in cast aluminium, the LED has an IP69K water/dustproof rating and comes with a five-year warranty. The nominal wattage is 175W, with each light drawing 14.3 amps.
When awarding the Nighthawks the top gong, Mark Allen said: “the light pattern with the standard spot cover is superbly bright over long distances, and it combines with one of the better (not the overall best) wide-angle spread over short and medium distances. Plus it’s devoid of annoying, patchy shadows”.
He added: “The simplistic yet rugged design of the fitting bracket is impressive”, and “the Night Hawks are priced in the middle of this pack, making this formidable driving light near unbeatable when combining specifications, inclusions and potential pairing with spot and wide beams”.
