    Default LED work lights upgrade, Kubota Grand L cab.

    Just installed these LED lights from Larsen lights. Nice units and a good company to deal with. I wanted something that was fairly "plug and play" and that could use existing wiring, bracket etc. rather than go through a lot of hassles. https://www.larsenlights.com/led-845w - the 845-2 "easy bracket" model

    Easy install - I just cut the wiring connector off the old lights and used the 2" of wire or so to crimp connect the new lights (which terminate in plain stripped wire). Had to add a few washers as the bracket was a bit wider than the mount point on the light but otherwise was super easy. Haven't used yet but the photos show what it looks like in the building. Prior lights were halogen kubota work lights.

    Old lights - photo with same manual exposure as below

    Very nice! Do you have any pics of them mounted on the cab? I'm thinking of doing a light upgrade myself. Thanks.

    No but can take some in the morning. They are just slightly bumping at the top against the roofline - so pointing very slightly downwards but I think will be fine and that may be the desire angle anyway. To be perfect I would need to modify the bracket to allow the light to sit about half an inch more forward. I also never found anywhere that would tell me the maximum wattage to keep existing switch and wiring, which was why I went with two lights and not a large light bar.

    Thank you. They look great. I checked their website and these lights look like a quality unit. I like the fact that they pretty much bolt right on with the brackets that come with the lights. I'm going to put this on my "to do" list.

    I've been considering something like this for my L5740.

    Has anyone tried mounting some of these on the rear of the cab for working with an implement at night?

    I mounted new LED;s on the front and moved the halogens to the rear.The wiring is in place you will need to purchase the "factory" switch.Easy job really.
