 Work lights on 4310

When I got my 4310 I had one of the work lights added to the rear. I got a laugh when I looked at it. The mounting bracket had a sticker labeled speaker??

I didn't know about being able to add a second rear light and the guy that dropped it off showed me the connector to plug in the other light.

On the ROPS front mounted work lights. Is there wiring there to just plug them in as well. I know there lights ask for the brush guard. Do they turn on using the dash switch as the rear light does?

I have the standard alternator and wish I would have opted for the upgraded unit. Do these light add-ons tax the base alternator?

Wish there was more control over the lights then the dash switch provides. Like a series of rocker switches maybe. Sometimes I would like the rear lights without anything of the others. Sometimes I like the front lights without the rear light. Be nice if the rear lights could come on when you go into reverse. I think the new X series LG do that.

 Work lights on 4310

It's a little hard to say without a wiring schematic but maybe somebody who knows the tractor will comment.

If the same switch that turns on the headlights also turns on the work-light, it's doubtful that a second light could be added to that circuit. A 55W work-light draws about 4.6A. I did a rough total and suspect that a 15A fused circuit might carry two 35W headlights, tails lights and one 55W work light but certainly not a second work light. Many newer tractors have an accessory outlet and often it's fused at 10A, which would support 2 55W lights. However, I don't think these outlets usually have a switch on the dash.

Generic work lights that are available from most dealers often have their own weather proof switches so individuals lights can be turned on or off as needed. These lights can be wired from an accessory outlet or directly from the battery through heavy wire and an in-line fuse placed as close to the battery as possible.

My alternator is rated at 35A. Others are 25A and an owner's manual should say. As you can see, it doesn't take much lighting to greatly extend battery recharge times.

I don't know enough about MMM's to comment on your other post. I do know that many people who have MMM's have to remove their loaders when their MMM's are mounted. I guess it's not too bad a situation if there's a difficulty that can be worked around.

 Work lights on 4310

I have a JD 445 (which is much smaller that a 4310. I have two front mounted and one rear mounted work light plus a strobe light mounted on the cab that I use in the winter. I installed these myself and have them connected to individual switches. I can use all of them at the same time, plus the regular lights on the tractor without any problem. Don't use the rear mounted work light much, but have had the other lights on for more than an hour at a time without blowing any fuses. I have not idea how much wattage they draw, etc; but thought I would pass this along for whatever it is worth.

 Work lights on 4310

I know there is a connector a the bottom of the rops for another rear work light. Simple install. Mount the light and run the pig tail down the center of the ROPS and plug it in. Works in tandem with the other I have already. JD WEB site lists both as options.

They also list the fornt work lights as well. YOu need the brush guard kit to attach them. Not sure where they wire in. Assume there is a connector somewhere for those as well.

Everything then must work off the single dash switch. There is an off position. The next is flashers. The next is flashers with front lights. The last is no flashers, front and rear lights.

Would have liked more control such as being able turn on the front lights without the rear work light. Or being able to turn on the main front lights without the brush guard mounted front lights. It would also have been nice to have a switch to enable the rear work lights come on when you press the hydro pedal to back up. Maybe on the 4320???

Just looking to see if others had mounted these options on a 4000 series and if the optional front lights have wiring in place for them like the rear ones did.

Just found this site. Lots of interesting reading. Use another site for when I had my 445 but since I traded up there isn't much there discussed on compacts.

 Work lights on 4310

I went to Walmartt, bought a set of Truck/RV driving lights, (halogen) 3x5. Mounted on 1 1/2 angle alum. 14". I heavy duty wire tied it to the ROP flat part at top. Ran the wire kit to the access. light plug, and mounted a bracket to hold the lighted switch to the left below the seat. There are holes already drilled. Ran the wire in the flex conduit from auto parts. Total 35.00, two budweiser. Talk about lighted work area!
