 B7800 - extra work lights

Has anyone added extra work lights (head lights) to a B7800? I'd likely mount them to the canopy/ROP. Does the electrical system have enough juice to support more lights?

Although we are getting 16 hours of daylight this week, in the winter it gets dark very early out here, so I expect to be working under the lights.

 B7800 - extra work lights

Many new tractors have a 10A or 15A auxiliary electrical outlet somewhere around the seat. A 10A circuit should support two 55W work lights. I have two on my canopy one forward one backward. I use wide beam floods to illuminate work areas but narrower beams would be better for driving. I wired mine directly from the battery through an in-line fuse. If the canopy is fiberglass a separate ground wire to the chassis would have to be run. I ensured that my 35A alternator would carry the entire accessory electrical load plus add on lights.

 B7800 - extra work lights

I added auxiliary lights to my 7800. Turns out it is already wired for rear work lights. The power plug is located on the harness behind the seat. I used two tractor lights from TSC, I believe they are 30 watt, but I honestly don't remember for sure. I have run both the headlights and the work lights at the same time, and the alternator sems to keep up with things just fine.

If you have folding ROPS, you can add the light brackets without clamps or drilling. The are holes in the ROPS at the pivot that are pretty useful for mounting the lights. I ran my wire through the ROP at the pivot.

Here's what I did for my BX2230. They work great.

I built this one (see pictures) I planned on building them for other people. But no takers. So I scrapped that plan. So far trees 0, light bar 6. I over built everything.
