I keep thinking about adding more lighting to the tractor, in particular for the nighttime after-work snow clearing that seems to happen a few times a year. Iím out in the boonies with no roadside lighting or city light pollution to help illuminate things. I need more forward lighting to really see and need back lighting so I can stop using the backhoe as an indicator of when to stop. (Bump. ďI guess thatís far enough.Ē)
So Iíve looked a bit at some light bars. How much do I need 27 watt? 120 watt? 240 watt? I donít know if 240 is overkill. The stock headlights (50w x2) and the work lights (37.5w x2) = 170 watts... but thatís not lumen. How many lumen does that push out? I need more, but how much?
Iíve seen lots of people adding the smaller round or square 27-35 watt LED lights. (Which is actually x2 output with two of them.) But is that enough? Doubling distance requires 4x the power to light, so...
Any feedback appreciated.
