 use 790 at night

i just installed a model 15 clearance light under the front edge of the tractor seat. so much easier to see the controls
ie: shifter- pto control at night. use my tractor quite a bit after sunset and u cant see anything below the dash after dark this really helped. just thought i would mention it. joe

I don't do much at night but that sound like a very good idea if I did. The bottom of my steel canopy seems like a good location but if the light were ahead of the seat it might shine in my eyes, or I might be in the way of the light if it were behind me. Mounted below me it might scare my friends and neighbours right after Halloween but that could also be the best location.

I'd probably want one that has it's own switch because I use the headlights during the day when I'm on the highway to run the flashers.

That truely is one of the best places to put a lite on a tractor that won't be shining in your face. Good thinking!

We have a few machines which are open station. Most of them are equipped with a surface mount license plate light. It is a flat plate with a tubular projection containing the fixture and bulb (standard 1156) which is designed to cast light downwards only. They are avalible in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the application.

The added benefit is that if you are getting on & off much you can clearly see the floorboards etc., as well.

Lots of choices are available, look at www dot pmlights dot com and click on products, license plate and utility lights. They are available at any auto parts store.

Best of luck.
