 Rear Lights on a 2210

Anyone had experience in adding rear work lights to a 2210? I want light(s) for backing up when snowblowing this winter.

How big to too big? Is it better to mount them high on the ROPS or just over the turn signals? One of two? Should they swivel front to back? Where do I best tap into the 12V power? Does Deere have a solution or is it a after-market thing?

Any help will be appreciated.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

Most all new tractors have a pig tail by the rear tail lights for power that can be used for rear work lights. I like them on the top of the rops aimed down for best visibility. Normally I recommend using a clamp around the roll bar so you don't have to drill it.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

I have mounted one on the fender side I'll be turning around to look backwards as I go, and one up on top of the rops. I think it's nice to have bright light down on the ground so I can see the back edge of the blowers blade.

The one on top gives a nice full area light. to see whats ahead...

 Rear Lights on a 2210

JD sells a rear worklight kit for the 2210. It is part number BM19291 (double check when you order). If it is like the kit on my 4310 it just mounts midway up the ROPS and plugs into an existing harness.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

I mounted a regular work light I purchased at Walmart behind the seat. I'll try to get some pictures up this weekend. The wiring plugged right into an already existing outlet with the taillights wires. I'll give the light wattage etc when I post the pictures. Defintely bright enough for blowing or hooking up attachments.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

Thanks for the advice. I was at the dealer this morning and bought two rear lights. The mechanics showed me the extra connection behind the seat just under the back edge. It is connected to the running lights switch - we checked it with a volt meter to be sure.

KW - I like the location you chose for your light - great picture. I'll explore that location.

KICKA - I'm anxious to see your mounting location picture. I used a similiar spot on a previous tractor with great success.

The dealer says I shouldn't have any problems adding the two lights, but acknowledged the limit of 20 amps on the alternator. He's got another customer for who he put a Kozy Cab on a 2210 for, but they are concerned about the alternator limit as the cab has lights and a heater (A beautiful cab as I saw it today!!).

Anybody see a need for a separate switch? I'm thinking of mounting one the ROPS in a convient spot. I don't want the rear lights all the time I have the front headlights on.

Any ideas?

Thanks again.

bmeyer, the location I have the rear light mounted is the standard location that the JD light kit attaches to on the 4310. The 2210 is probably the same.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

KW, My thought was to mount the lights on the outside of the ROPS. On the 2210 the ROPS doesn't fold thus I would be faced with the issue you would have run into if you had tried it on yours. Because the 2210 is smaller I guessed that the lights might be in my way for reaching back if they were on the inside of the tailights.

Where did you mount your switch to control your rear lights? On the dash? Does that pig tail underneath go all the way back to the main switch - or is it just a local branch. (My tractor is still at the dealer getting the new snowblow installed so I can't look at mine right now.)

Thanks again for the advice. I really appreciate it.

 Rear Lights on a 2210

I mounted a piece of angle between the ROPS bars using U-bolts and put a single light on it, plugging into the rear outlet under the seat. You can see it in my pic #8. I liked it OK but wanted lights facing the front for pushing snow. I got 2 and mounted them on each side of the rear facing one. 2 lights prevent your head from casting a shadow. These work very well also. I was concerned about having these 3 lights in addition to the tractor's lights on all together, so used a seperate circuit for them. I went right to the battery for power because I couldn't find another source that was easy to tap into. I used a relay to power the lights and a switch to turn the relay on and off. These were both only a few dollars from an auto parts store. I couldn't decide where to mount the switch and relay so I stole a small Tupperware container from my wife and mounted it onto the ROPS bar using the bolts holding the existing lights on. I put the relay and switch inside the container with the switch handle sticking out to the front. This keeps everything easy to reach and is weatherproof. I'll try to get some pics today and add them to my photos.

bmeyer, when the JD lights are plugged into the pigtail harness designed for it they are controlled with the main light switch.
