I'm not sure if you're aware but there's a big torch culture in the UK and USA. The entry level for those in the know is the LED Lenser X21 (first video) but they get much brighter (second video). I reckon two of those puppies strapped to your A-frame would help you see in the dark.

I have seen many LED torches, from LED lenser to wiseLED (that's one!) and many more

I haven't tried it myself, but it does looks like a really nice torch. I like the way that it's waterproof and rechargeable. I've used a LED Lensor X21 before. It's a big, heavy torch but it does put out a lot of light.
