 Additional lights

I was using my B-7800 the other night and with the FEL on, the headlights are next to useless. I have seen different set-ups of additional lighting on some of the pics listed here, but I was curious if there was a factory set-up I could get. I don't want to do anything that would void my warranty. I am interested in adding a couple of forward facing lights and a rear facing light. I guess the only place they could be mounted would be the ROPS.

Kubotaguy I realize this and made a set of light for my B7500. The first 2 pic aren't wired. But next 3 show it is. I used 1/4" plate, welded it together and painted it. The enire set up is armored. Even the switches, the electrical box is made from 1/8". It cost about $20 for the steel, $17 per light, switchs about $3 each, Wire and connectors about $5. So about a $100. I needed on the roll bar so i can see over the blower. I already want to make another one for next year, with more improvement. Better yet just build a cab.
On the back of your tractor on the right hand side, there are a black and red wire you can connect to. The lights are 35 watts, 2amp, 12volt. Don't go over 10 amps on your lights. Its really bright. My dealer said i didn't void my warrenty. Better check with Art. Send an email and i send more photos. Can't wait to use it, only 1" today.

Did you make the brackets going around the ROPS or is it just all thread bent? I am hoping that Kubota has a kit that I can buy. I can make something like that but I prefer to buy the bracket and lights all together.

I'm bad because I drilled and tapped into my ROPS, but maybe you can get some ideas from my setup. Brackets are off a New Holland, mounted a control box or something. Check the pics on my website below.

Kubota guy it just took U bolts for a trailer axel. They were 3" wide by 5" long (each leg) I cut them down to 2.5" (I wanted the top smooth as possible. Some of my family aren't to bright so i wanted to do as little damage as possible when somebody drives it into the garage again with the rops up.) The U bolts basically clamp the light box to the tractor. There are two 3/4" bar stock on top of the box to allow the box to clear the bends in the roll bar. The only kit you can buy is a rear facing light that mounts on the right rear fender for about $23. I sell you this one for $300 after i build another one.


AVR8 do you have a death wish. Rule number one, do not do anything to a set of ROPS. My father is a safety nut, that why mine do not endanger the structure integrity of the ROPS.

Green, nice job on the lights. They look well protected in a position that can take alot of abuse from tree branches.

Don't you think it's time to change your name to itsgottobeORANGE? Smile

shortmagnum i will change it to green+orangeinharmony when my subcribiton needs to be renewed. (I still have one john deere 214. I sold the follow JD 110,312,955. I grew up in IL, which is deere country. I owned both and can say there are some differents. Kubota built better, but loader control pain, hydro petals also JD more creature comfort, but doesn't built the entire tractor themselfs, hydro control easyer. ) I am 50:50 split at the moment.

I am only 18 and you know how teens drive. I had the same idea. I rip the tree branch off, not the lights.

Great job on the lights Green! Nice pics as well. Do the lights have a separate switch to individually control them? It looks like it from the pics.

I think I'll take a pass on purchasing your lights. I didn't say I couldn't make the setup but rather I preferred to purchase something that was approved by Kubota. Besides after you told me it cost a $100 to make and then you are going to sell it used for $300. Hmmm I guess you haven't taken any marketing classes.

Green, justa small observation here, but one day it may save your neck...

That SMV (Slow Moving Vehicle) sign on the back of your tractor should be mounted as afar to the LEFT side of the machine as is practical. When you operate that machine on a public road you must be on the far right of the road, so the reflector should be marking the nearest point of the machine to traffic.

That way in poor visibility conditions the first thing visible is the part of the machine which the oncoming traffic would hit first.

I point this out because a local farmer near me was struck and nearly killed the week before Christmas while roading his tractor home from a days work at another property. He will live, but it will be tough farming with only one arm, a mashed up leg and a steel rod in his back......

Best of luck.
