    Default Additional Tractor Work Light Ideas

    Would like to add 2 work lights pointing forward and 1 or 2 pointing rearward to my kubota M9540 under my canopy to my ROPS. I wind up feeding cows when I get home from work and the factory lights are almost useless when you stick a roll of hay with FEL. I am leaning towards LED due to the low current draw. I am looking for ideas and especially pics.

    I mounted these flood lights ( LED 90-deg flood light ) to my mule and they are plenty bright up close, but would like to have something shine out a little further.

    How about something like this. They are standard equipment on the B26.

    Are your lights bolted to canopy or ROPS?

    The factory front and rear lights (the upper ones) are attached to the plastic roof cover over the FOPS.

    You can add four additional work lights - two on the front and another set on the rear as shown in the photo. The optional worklights for the B26 attach to the ROPS.

    This is my setup has worked well for ten years.
    The front lights are long tapered beams I forget the specific name.
    The rears are flood type
    The center rear light is a driving light.

    These are some great ideas. What king of lights are they? LED? Halogen?...Since I do a lot of bushhogging and other work around near the woods, I don't think it would be wise for me to mount at the front of my canopy (mostly because others use my tractor too and wouldn't be as careful as I would). I'm leaning towards mounting to ROPS under canopy and probably make some sort of protection for them.

    Mine are just regular incandescent. They've never gone out yet from vibration or damage, the revolving light filament has broken a couple times tho....Mike

    I used what ever lights come on a Case 580 backhoe. These things are great.
