Does anyone know if the new hood/headlights can be installed on the "older" tractors. I have a '03 tc40d. I have found there is a blind spot while using the tractor with loader on, after dark. Does the new style of headlights actually make a difference in being able to see while the front end loader is on. It is bothersome to ride around the loader up higher than usual just to have better lighting. I am tickled pink or should I say "blue" with my tractor. This is a great board!! thanks.

Probably be a lot easier to put forward facing worklights on your ROPS.

Stump.. I'd try aux lights on the ROPS. It'll give you more light at a better angle than the stock lights . John

My 04, has the same problem and soon the lights will be on the rops. I can get pretty good lighting when the fel is almost all the way down with the bucket curled but am installing the rops lights next month cause it seams like the bucket is too low when traveling on rough ground and also truing to see with the standard issue. I believe the new lights give more lighting out to the sides and dont help too much for forward lighting.

Many work lights come in three beam widths. The middle one (often called trapezoidal) is decent for driving. I have wide flood ones since I don't often have to drive at night and usually I'm more interested is connecting, checking or tinkering with things. The narrowest width (spot) is often too narrow for driving. They often are used for field work at night--so the row ends can be seen easily.

I mounted work lights on the ROPS to solve the loader/lights problem. I mounted them at about eye level on both sides because I was able to do this and easily mount the lights and hide the wires without any drilling. I would definitely recomend mounting above your eye level. If I turn to look behind me I am completely blinded. I am going to try different beams to see if it will help, but mount the lights above your head.

I guess it depends on your situation and what you are doing with the machine also.

In my neck of the woods a pair of lights on the ROPS at eye level would hinder your vision, the cloud of moths and bugs circling around your head would make it really tough to see anything!!

In a snow storm blowing or heavy falling snow would also make visibility pretty bad.

Generally I have found that the closer you can get the light to the work the better. Lights mounted on the grill guard or even on the loader arms themselves seem to work very well.

Best of luck.

With the lights on the ROPS, I am able to swivel the lights to aim behind me for three point work. I haven't noticed any problems from the snow, which we got plenty of this year. The bugs aren't quite out yet, we'll see.

i have mounted lights for customers in a variety of places on the class III nh (35,40,45) with loaders.
On the top of the rops but if you do this DO NOT DRILL or WELD to it, but then i have to say that cause of where i work. make or buy a clamp that goes around the bar. (we sell padded clamps that are easy to mount they are 1 on the difficulty scale) I have also mounted to the cross bar an the loader it self there is one spot on that area that nh says is OK to drill in to but only 5/16" holes and that is where you would mount the third function hyd out let on the loader extreme left side right beside where the steel line 90 to the rubber lines.

I mounted YELLOW fog lamps on my ROPS with marine epoxy. Yellow doesn't attract bugs. Fog lamps throw a W-I-D-E beam so it eliminates shadows. The epoxy has a 5000# pull strength, is 100% waterproof, and from what I can tell, epoxy is tree branch proof too!
