 Mount Worklight Directly To Fender? TC33D

Trucklite makes a (2)-55watt bulb worklight that I was wondering if I could mount directly to the fender? It has a 4 hole mounting base. I was going to either put 2 pieces of metal or 4 large washers on the bottom, and a foam gasket on the top.

The pre-wired connector in the back runs off the headlight and taillight circuit which is fused for 20amps, the 110 watt worklight will be to much for the circuit. Can I put a 25amp fuse in it's place or will I need to run it on another circuit?

You might find post #67600 helpful (and the whole thread has good info on lights) see my recent pics for ROPS mounted example.

Oops! Sorry about that- StephenR, Evidently you can't look up message numbers.
Look in Forums, Kubota Owning/Buying.
Scroll down and click Re:Work Light for L3130
or in the Search box at the top of page, search for ' Work Light for L3130 '
in the Subject box.
Hope this helps, bliz

StephenR,
Does the work light have a switch on it? If not you may not be 'street legal'. 110 Watts is almost 10 Amps at battery voltage, which is probably more than all your factory lights combined. I'd recommend using an automotive relay mounted close to the battery. You can power the relay from the light circuit. Put the switch in the relay feed. Use 10 or 12 Gauge wire for the power leads. 110Watts is a LOT of light!

As long as you don't block your tail/signal/emergency lights, mounting on the rear fender should be fine. You might want to temporarily power up the light before mounting to see how the coverage is.

Good luck with your project,
bliz

The light does have a switch on it and will not block the flasher. I'm wondering if I can just replace the 20 amp fuse with a 25 amp. I was thinking of switching the ground wire off of the factory connector to run another +VCC line, and grounding the light right to the ROPs.

I'm more concerned about mounting the light directly on the fiberglass fender. I didn't really thing about fabricating something for the ROPs, which is a good idea if I can still fold it. New Holland makes a bracket for the ROPs which costs $20 and I would have to find out if this specific light will fit.

StephenR,
I didn't realise the fenders are fiberglass. I would be careful with the weight and size of the light. But it does seem to have a nice large base, so you are probably O.K.
I'm just guessing, but my experience has been that the rear wiring is not sized for really heavy amperage. My factory rear worklight wiring (Kubota 3130) was fused 7.5A, or about 90W max, and the wire was sized for that draw. Do you have a fuse for a rear worklight circuit? I believe my factory setup for work lights is 2 35W units. Perhaps you can find out what your model's dealer options are, and that should give you the info as to how much you can safely draw.
I wouldn't just replace the fuse, because if the wire(s) are marginal for the current, they may not fail until later (hot weather, emergency flashers on, a little corrosion in the connectors). Manufacturers RARELY use larger wire than necessary.

To me 2 55W halogen bulbs seems overkill for the rear. I wound up adding accesory lights (2 55W compact fog type) to the front, as after backing up vision to the front was pretty poor. The factory front lights on my tractor are (2) 25W incandescent, added rear work light (1) 55W halogen.

Hope this helps a little,
bliz

This is really turning out to be a major pain. You're probably right about the 110 watts being overkill. I'm going to go to the dealer tomorrow to see what they have. Thanks.

Stephen the factory light and bracket work great and install in about 15 minutes.

I installed the NH factory rear aux light. It mounts to a bracket using the base of the ROPS, it taps into the factory wires, the whole install took 5 minutes, cost $35 and works great.
