Seen some led lights that attached to the vertical parts of the chute but can't remember the name of em. Anyone help me out with the name?

Where are they available. They sound like they would work good on my working chute in the barn.

Go to Menards and buy a LED Bar Light.  The magnets won't work, but you can zip tie them on.

We put together this lighting system works great. No shadows. Can tilt both sides. We have 10 times more light then you need but its much better then not enough. Sullivan Supply was very interested in marketing it but felt it might hard to travel with to shows. So now I planning on marketing on my own. Or maybe another supplier will pick it up yet to market.

We just use cheap track lighting. You can move individual lights to or away from different spots and you can always add lights. They are cheap, very durable and travel well. Need light on the hip slide all 8 bulbs south and your good. They come ready to wire so you can use whatever lenght of cord you see fit.

That's pretty neat and clever

I found 4' LED shop lights at Walmart for about $25 each. I just zip tie them to the chute. They were by the fluorescent light bulbs. I was pretty satisfied with them this past weekend at Iowa Beef Expo. They are only 1" in diameter and fit inside the halter door of my upright showbox.

Found these today, have to follow the link.  I'd almost be afraid they'd be too bright.  It says to log in, I saw them in their catalog and I think they were around $120

We have the Lakeside Lights that Sullivan Supply sells.  They are slightly tilted at the 45 degree angle and hit full light right on the calf.  I only used the two top light bars and the butt one at Expo, but the set comes with 6 light bars that attach to steel chutes with magnets or come with velcro straps to easily attach to aluminum chutes.  Love mine.

A quarter of the price of the Sullivan's lights. Just as good imo.

HomeRaised - have you used them? They look like they'd work great.  I might have to pick up a set.
