VOLT® Fat Boy

VOLT's® Fat Boy Spotlight is easily the most affordable all-brass fixture in low voltage outdoor lighting. Sheet brass body, cast brass knuckle, and solid brass screws and knobs.

Includes 360º rotatable shroud, PVC Hammer™ Stake (brass surface mount base shown in picture is an optional accessory). Uses Halogen or LED MR-16 lamps rated up to 50w. Uses premium grade internal components: Silicone sealed at lead wire exit, internal heat reflector, pre-greased ceramic socket for longevity and convex lens for shedding water.

Perfect for any uplighting application. The Fat Boy Spotlight is a great solution for any budget without sacrificing pro-grade quality.

Features & Benefits:

  • Sheet brass construction
  • Pre-aged brass finish. There is no powder coating, paint or finish to wear off or peel—just the natural patina beauty of brass that does not corrode.
  • Solid brass or stainless steel components.
  • 360º rotatable glare guard
  • The body is machine threaded and screws tight onto an O-ring for the ultimate moisture tight design.
  • Choose from 4' standard or 25' hub ready 16G, SPT-2 premium tinned copper lead wire.
  • The lens is convex so water does not puddle on the lens which reduces hard water build-up and water intrusion.
  • Ceramic high temperature socket.
  • Socket and machine thread body are pre-greased for smooth operation and moisture protection.
  • Silicone plug where lead wires exit fixture. Prevents ground moisture and insects from entering fixture through the stem.

    What is the best bulb size to use for up lighting of mid size tree's, I have not used LED lights before.

      A:

      We usually recommend 20-30 watt halogen equivalent bulbs, this way as the tree grows the light will still be sufficient. This is a retro-fit fixture so you can change bulbs as the tree gets larger.

I purchased 29 of these fixtures to provide up light on 14 palm trees and one to light the entry to the house. I purchased them during their 50% off sale.At half price it cost about $25 a light for an all brass fixture with a lifetime guaranty. If you don't think that's an incredible deal then see what $25 will purchase at a big box store.

I also purchased two of the Top Dog spotlights which unveiled two minor problems I found with the Fat Boys. The Fat Boys open at the top of the fixture making it difficult to get your fingers around the lamp to guide it into place. The Top Dogs disconnect near the base of the fixture; making it easy to install the lamp. The second problem is that the fixtures I've received have all been shipped with the knuckle turned 90 degrees. When I straighten the fixture it feels as though the wire is being stretched. The Top Dog adjusts much more
smoothly.

These are all minor complaints. Would I buy them again? For $5.00 more I would purchase the Top Dog with neither of those issues. But with a 50% discount it's a no brainer. I'd purchase them again in a heartbeat.

On a side note, between their videos and articles and especially their superlative 7 day customer support I can highly recommend Volt Lighting and would use the Fat Boys again in a heartbeat..

These are a total pain. The bulbs are very hard to install. Every time the yard maintenance crew comes, they knock the bulbs out and I have to go around and put them all back in again. My husband cannot do it because his fingers are too big. There is no room inside the case to hold the bulb while installing it: in other words, 2 fingers and a bulb width do not fit in the case. They easily dislodge upon being bumped. I would never purchase these again.

I'm a professional installer and these fixtures are just as good if not better than the ones I used to go with. Very sturdy product. I include a 5 year warranty on all my installs ( including the LED lamps) and never have had a failure.

nice fixture but wire is thin

Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

I like the fat boy lights. I use them to light up groups of plants. they create a nice shadow. what I don't like about them and seems to be across the entire line of volt products is the extension wire is 18 gauge. very thin stuff. the fixture is solid but weak on the wiring. they need to have an option for 12 or 14 guage for those that have long runs and want the least amount of voltage drop. the work around is to go with a 4ft extrnsion then solder on 12 or 14 for the extra back to the hub

    The bulbs fall out of socket easily, unfortunately landscapers bump them. When working right it's a great fixture. Future: more fixed LED fixtures.

      I am replacing all my landscaping lighting with the volt lights. The quality is exceptional as well as esthetically pleasing. Yes, they do cost more, but you do not need to replace them every 3-4 years. Pay now or pay later, but you will pay for quality.

      Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

      An excellent complement to the Max Spread Path & Area light, the Volt Fat Boy Brass Spotlight is made of high quality materials, excellent custom LED lights, and the best stakes available. Easy to assemble and connect with the 4' lead line making light placement more reasonable for one's needs. Up-lighting of trees was accomplished with outstanding results. When compared to lower priced "big box store" landscape lights, the Volts are a far better deal with higher quality and a lifetime guarantee. A recommended "buy."

      Best of class fixtures but bulbs need to be latched down.

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

      These are wonderful low-voltage landscape lights. The only nit that I have is that the bulbs tend to get popped out of there sockets if the lights get hit -- which seems to happen all too often with our landscaping crew. While I like the ability to be able to replace the bulbs in these spotlights, I think that I would seriously consider more permanent-type lighting fixtures in the future.

      Comments about VOLT® Fat Boy Brass Spotlight | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

      Small and discreet lighting, with oomph! I was replacing old, high voltage floodlights in the yard, which blinded anyone sitting near them. These Fat Boys are able to keep the light focused on the trees, without the nasty side-glare. Loved these so much that I ordered more. I've mixed different bulbs throughout the landscaping with these (wider beam for some areas), and they're easy-peasy to adjust. Overall, very pleased with both the product and the FAST shipping!
