    Horns

    Yeah, you heard correctly. Here is something I have been pondering for some time and just haven't taken the leap to do it. I have always thought it would be cool to have an air horn on the tractor. I guess what is holding me back is "where to mount it". And then I don't want it blasting me in the ear, so no ROPS mounting.

    Anyone out there as crazy as I am or have any experience with these things? What do you guys think? It would be fun wouldn't it?

    I put a regular car horn on my tractor, it's operated from an extra button on the joystick handle. It's very usefull when working around others to get attention since yelling over the engine noise does not work.

    I can't see a need for real air horns, plus as you wrote mounting them and the tank/compressor would be a real challenge. Car horns are only $15 also.

    Quickly perusing the JD Parts site I see the Euro 2520 has a horn available..Just quickly adding parts to my order, looks like all the parts are available Stateside...
    might be SOME work to be done on your own, but you can use the factory switches, horn, etc.. and say you have a "Factory" horn...

    I added the factory horn to my 4520. Kinda a hack. The button is kludgy, you better have some Greenlee hole punches, and the horn is in front of the radiators up under the hood. Very un-Deere like.

    Someday, when I have my "fix a bunch of little annoying stuff on the 4520"-fest, I'll move the horn away from the radiators. Will also fix trim that presses on the rear window at the top (ok, well, it doesn't press well- that's the problem).

    Now from a performance art point of view, I _love_ the train horn! But practical Pete says no. Beside, to install all that there would no doubt have to be sort sort of bracket to weld up, and that would leave me out of that game !

    Man, you guys are depressing:empathy3:

    Mount the compressor on the bottom by a fender. or spend some bucks and get a belt driven or make a PTO driven

    So you have a few hoses to run

    Mount the horns under your seat

    All done.



    Then scare people.

    Ok.... yeah, practical can put a damper on things. But often there's no time for tomfoolery.

    Just the though of that horn scared me- I've got a "Deere in the Headlights" look thing happening...

    Looking forward to the video of the install and so we can hear that thing...

    I left a yellow push button on my joystick grip just for a horn. I just have to get around to wiring it up and installing it. A fog horn would be great, but I bet it'll end up being a 8$ horn from Princess Auto.

    If you can afford it and can find the room, go for it. Those prices are out of my league. Adding a horn using the European horn switch and location is on my ever growing to-do list.

    Wow, you tractor guys sure aren't car or truck guys. Yeah, really wasn't going for the practical. I was going for the REALLY COOL thing. I mean com'on man, that would be really cool.

    OK Pete, I hear you, and maybe that is why I have only thought about it. Kinda low on the priority list.

    Thanks, for hang in there with me Brian, not sure the horns would fit under the seat. Those suckers are big and not a lot of room under the seat. You have to remember I drive a little tractor.

    Well, it is only a pipe dream at this point, but that isn't going to stop me from thinking about it.

    Do your machines not come with a horn?

    I say if you want to do it.. do it. Just don't mount the horns on the ROPS... your hearing would hate you.
