    Default Battery Operated Warning Lights

    Here are some FlareAlert lights I added to the grill and ROPS on my BX25: Amazon.com: FlareAlert LED Emergency Beacon Flare - Red: Automotive
    They are magnetic, battery operated and have steady burn and flashing modes. THae seem to put out pretty good light.

    something you can convert over to tractor power to keep from buying batteries all the time?

    Pretty cool!

    Looks similar to what we use for setting up the L.Z. for the helicopter to land.

    I may have to get a couple- I want to put them on my FEL arms near the bucket for visibility when I plow. It would be handy to just pop them on when I need to and not have to worry about running wires. 70 hour burn time in flash mode on batteries would run me the whole winter.
    I thank God everyday for all of the blessings he has given me- especially for the one's I do not recognize or see!

    Unfortunately, I lost one in the snow today. I guess I'll have to wait until spring...(they are waterproof and crush-resistant)

    "no" ? you sure about that?

    it's a plastic box with a lamp, and some sort of power cell....i can't think of a valid reason why it could not be converted to run off renewable power?????

    I'm sure you could convert it but- LED's run on small voltage, so the added expense of electronics to adapt to 12v might be prohibitive.

    I'd be interested in knowing, i just don't know alot about LED set ups

    I'll change "no" to "not easily" or "I'm' not going to try"...

    'not going to try' will do... because the 'not easilly' simply ain't true.

    it's running of some standardized supply voltage in that box. and as long as it's less than 14v.. it's *-=(VERY EASY)=-* to drop the voltage down to what it wants.

    As far as the led's running on very little voltage. you might be surprised... they run on very little current.. but depending ont he led setup, and if they have a mole driving them or not.. supply votlage could be as high as 12v

    cost prohibitive? probably 5$ in radio shack parts is what it would take to rig up something to power them lamps off tractor power... that and a lil E=IR ....
