 Not enough light on a Kubota.

My father owns a G1800 4WS lawn tractor/mower. This unit is one of the neatest mowers I've ever used, not to mention that it steers all four wheels as if it has power steering, but it doesn't. Unfortunately, It has one MAJOR design flaw. LIGHTS!! or lack there of. The lights in this unit are worse than the little license plate lights my truck has... Upon disassembly, we found that the bulbs are measely little 12-14W bulbs. I would think higher wattage bulbs will fit the sockets, but what about heat build up! I don't want to melt his plastic lenses. It appears this is a fairly common problem on Kubota's, and would assume many have re-engineered this situation. We would really love to hear what others have found as a good reliable solution. The obvious solution is to simply mount other lights, But I don't want to overload the alternator and Battery. Thanks in advance for all your input and help with this, my father will really appreciate it. He still can't believe guys talk about tractors on the "computer"..

Take a look at: http://www.his.com/~msimpson/tractor/Lots of nice lighting photos. As long as the amps of the tractor's alternator are more than your lights, starter draw and whatever else (radio, gps, whatever) times some adequate safety margin (1.5?) you can modify away with a reasonable likelihood of better vision.
