Well, I'll be the first to point out I was wrong. Disregard what I wrote above.Quote:

I connected it with the connectors that are located under the seat. I already had the Kubota 35 watts worklignt installed and connected at the same place. Since all 3 cables goes to the sams fuse that is 10 amps, I changed it for a 15 amps (35 watts + 55 watts + 55 watts = 145 watts / 12 volts = 12 amps). A 10 amps fuse is too tight for those 3 lights at the time but, since it only draw 12 amps when they are all on , it won't damage the wires. I have to admit that I never try letting them on for a very long period of time (hours). Hope it will help you.
Can you put up a picture of inside ROPS lights - I want to do the same but I am really not sure about the brackets? Did you make them or buy them?
There must be a rule or something, they all do it. My Kubota and MF both are the same. On my Kubota since I have a cab with worklights I just unpluged the harness from the bulbs so I could use the running lights.
My MF has a fancy setup so you can't use the worklights while the 4 ways are on so I have to use the grill mounted lights on the road at night. Have to almost drag the bucket or raise it silly high.
Funny all the LED posts now. Back in the old days of 2008 when I did my ROPS work lights, LEDs were way more expensive, and there weren't anywhere near the number of options that are available now. Because I used Halogens, my factory rear work light wire still sits unused.
I wired in 2 relays off the battery (one for each pair of front & rear lights), then installed Kubota L39 worklight dash switches to make it look factory installed. If I were to ever want to add LEDs to that setup, there's enough power to run about 20,000 lumens worth of LEDs up on the ROPS. :laughing:
