 Rear Facing Work Lights

I installed my set of dual rear facing John Deere work lights. Was not bad installing. Just have the fish the wirres through the ROPS. I made pig tail adapters instead of using the supplied Scotch Loks. I don't like to use those things unless I have to. The light are identical to the forward facing work lights I have in my pics except that the wire is just a but shorter and they mount inside the ROPS instead of on the outer light brush guard. Big improvement in rear light and visiblity. I am wondering if I am within the output capacity of my alternator with 4 extra 35 watt lights. I figure the alternator can support about 425 watts. I figure all 6 of the lights take about 250 watts including the flashers, so I should be OK.

 Rear Facing Work Lights

Chief thats a good question! I remember a few years back on a (770) that was a bid tractor that had two batteries and an alternator switch and the battery was still going dead daily. I stopped in to talk and it took me about two minutes to figure out what it was. They had the factory lites, four extra two front and two rear, big beacon, two fans in the cab and heater as well as a lite. I'm not in favor of state contract or bid tractors for this reason. Every situation is different.

Sounds OK but might take a bit of life out of the alternator and extend the battery recharge time a bit. Well worth the extra light I'd think.

I'm not sure what the SAE standards for wiring are, but it's good to use adequate gauge wiring. I used 16-gauge for my 2 55W lights and emergency flasher. That's may not quite up to residential codes even if the circuit is fused at 10A, but residential codes are higher than SAE I think. It's good to know that wire gauge requirements are determined by current rather than voltage. 12V lighting takes a bunch of amps.

Chief If I remember correctly your tractor gets parked in a cushie spot. Cool in summer and warm in winter?

Mine hauls the fire wood in and sits near the wood furnace all winter over the floor drain.

When I have completed the work requiring all of my lighting I shut down the biggest lights before I head for garage. I keep tractor at a fast idle while I clean the bulk of snow off whatever I am using. Idle down and move it back inside.

I have never had a wattage concern or a problem starting. But then again battery only 3 years old now.

Chief, just reading posts here I realized I didn't answer your question at all! I think you will be all right as your tractor has a far bigger output than a 770. They have to have a good size alternator on your tractor as with the E-controls you would have major problems with the drive system without.

I was looking at your pictures, what in the world is the second tube for on your homemade trailer hitch? Is it a boom connection point or something?

It is a boom connection for a "cherry picker". Kinda like an engine hoist boom. It also is the receivcer for the gooseneck ball mount.
