Finding The Best Head Torch For Your Arboricultural Work

A Guide To Choosing The Best Head Torch

When working in dark conditions such as in woodlands and forests at night time, head torches are extremely beneficial in helping to increase work quality and productivity. Owning the best head torch for your working environment is also crucial in ensuring safety by providing extreme brightness wherever you look.

Why should you use a head torch over a traditional torch? Especially in winter months when the days are short, it is imperative to own a high-performance head torch you can rely on. Traditional torches can be a struggle and don’t offer practical qualities such as when vast movement is required in your work. They also tend to be heavy to carry around and are less adaptable to different working positions and ranges of vision.

Today, we at Northern Arb Supplies are aiming to help you make the right decision when it comes to finding the best head torch for your work. Whether your job at hand involves groundwork or climbing trees, close-range or long-range vision, our exceedingly popular head torch collection offers outstanding all-round quality.

A few of the best head torches to consider are:

Petzl Head Torch Review

“Having done a few night-time call-outs, I use Petzl – it clips to both my husky ground lid and Petzl vertex. It’s a brilliant asset to add to 4×4 lights. My defender has additional roof lights but when you are working with your back to the vehicle, as you often will be, a head torch illuminates your immediate area.”ArbTalk

LED Head Torch Review

“For gritting or just general seeing in the dark, we use LED Lenser 7R. Nice and bright for what we need. Gets dropped seemingly every 30 seconds by one member of staff and it’s still fine after a year, can use 3 AAA’s or the rechargeable battery that can charge from the truck with a USB adaptor.”ArbTalk
