Kubota M7060 w cab Kubota x1100c Kubota KX008 John Deere 4400 , JD TLB110
Title says it all. The lights on my M7060 suck and in the time of LED lights, Kubota missed the boat on this one. IU have quite a few LED lights from a buddy of mine that works for Truck Lite that i am going to mount on my tractor. Anyone have any idea what these wires are for?
Kubota B8200, then a Kubota L3130 HST, now a Kubota L3400 HST
I have festooned my L3400 with LED lights (basically, cheap ones from China- although they all must come from China these days) since I used to need to snow plow at night occasionally, and they work fine. Two front, two rear, two side, or alley, lights. The current draw is very nominal, and they have worked fine for years. Just warm enough for snow to melt off. Waterproof rocker switches, lighted so if they get turned on in the day, I know it. Also installed a waterproof digital voltmeter, just as a simple way to keep an eye on my battery and charging system. For some reason, I can't remove the photo that shows the earlier version with just the two lights per side...
Like Varmint, I added 6 LED lights, all on my roll cage, and with them all on, I don't even use my factory lights in the grill, they just shine on the back of the loader bucket anyway. I often mow at night, or finish in the dark at least!
Kubota has to have the weakest headlights in the industry. The lights in my M's are comparable to a flashlight with almost dead batteries. I added LED's a long time ago. If good enough for JD, good enough for me.
Here's a description of the current setup on my L4240. Tonight I started mowing after dark because of my schedule the next couple days. The night shot has all the lights turned on, but tonight I turned the two forward facing roof-mounted lights off and still had plenty of light where it was needed. It was also kind of relaxing/cozy without the hood being illuminated. When it's time for snow the grill guard lights won't be much help so I'll be running the cab-mounted lights for sure.
If those two wires come from up under your rear fender - they are hot leads. They power my rear light. If I had to do night work - I'd be getting LED flood lights from J A McDermott out of Ridgewood, New York. Commercial 12 volt LED flood lights. I've worked on commercial fishing boats that use them.
While I havnt had to do much night work with my M7060, I have an LED light bar on my car and had some on a truck. Our airplanes at work also have switched to LED landing lights. One thing I don’t like about the LED’s, they make very little heat, and in the winter time ice and slush build up on them and does not melt off like a halogen. In another few months I guess I’ll find out how bad these halogens are for night snow blowing.
