 I HAVE LIGHT!!

Thanks to everyone who gave me input regarding hooking up a rear work light on my 4500 and especially to denwood. I found the wires he described, hooked up the wires, and it worked!

Thanks again!
MIKE
p.s.
I will be asking for help again when im ready to work on changing a front wheel seal and taking the "slop" out of the tie rods!

You are welcome, glad I could help. The light makes such a difference, I don't understand why anyone would buy without it. How many hours are on you machine. Leaking seals and sloppy tie rods sounds like lots of hours but somehow I think it may just mean John Deere, or any of the other brands not made quite well enough.

I wish they had put it on mine for me but I found the wires and hooked up my own. There were no connector though , I think the dealer cut connector off and just black taped. I checked other tractors at the same dealer and found the samething .

The black taped wires is OEM for JD. I thought it was strange too. On the installation instructions it says to remove the tape.

denwood-
My tracor has 1420 hrs. It is a 1999 that I bought used last May. We built a new home last year and I purchased it to do landscaping, snow removal, and mowing. I dont have a mower yet, hoping to get one in the spring. I purchased an adjoining property this winter so now we will have 5 acres total to mow. I have done alot of work with it thus far and have alot more to do. Another reason I bought this unit was that it has a Curtis Soft Cab on it. We live on the top of the hill and the wind really blows in the winter. The cab makes a huge difference when clearing snow (I just use the loader to plow with). When I took the tractor out of the garage after I hooked the light up, it was dark and it was really nice to see when backing up!!
My tractor is in pretty good shape. I bought it from a New Holland Dealer. It appears it was neglected somewhat on minor items. I have replaced grease fittings, filters, etc. but it will work perfect for me. I hope to post some pictures soon. Thanks again for the help.
MIKE

Enjoy your light. I'm glad I put one on my 4310. Makes it much easier to see what the rear blade is doing in the dark.

As for living on a hill, I have the same scenario. I've been up on the roof three times this winter to replace missing shingles.
