Old thread I guess but Menards now carries 8ft hardwired LED's. Waited for the 11% off deal and got 8 of them. Think they're 5K spectrum and very nice for $80 each. great investment for any shop.. wish I'd have done it sooner!
Went yesterday to our local Menards. They had the 8' footers but you have to use a "intastart" ballast. So , I dig though all their ballasts to find one and they had none for the required 75 watt bulbs. I left empty handed.
These are the one's I bought. Doubled them up side by side with a little spacer(used 1/2" nuts) to permit cover removal. Turn key stuff.. just replaces your old housing completely.

I was looking at the plain bulbs @ $19.99 a pair. I already have two 8' fixtures and just wanted to convert.
Everyone appreciates your honesty , until you're honest with them , then you're an @$$hole.

If you need another reason to switch over, when the county inspected my shop the three things I was immediately asked about were: 1) Solvents and their disposal; 2) Furnaces of any type; 3) Fluorescent light bulbs. They wanted receipts showing that the bulbs were disposed of properly.
