    New rear lights

    Finally got around to installing my Rigid LED’s on the ROPS. What a difference they make at night. I opted for the diffused lens to maximize useable light around me as the main use will be my rear snow blower.
    I was skeptical buying the RIGID lights for the cost alone but I trusted the input I got and boy am I happy I did. The quality is outstanding from the housing to the wiring and hardware. The light output is fantastic, not just lumens but the pattern and most importantly, the color Is close to daylight. Gotta Get my beacon on next but I think After that I might get another set of the Rigids for the front. I can mount them right to the same mount as the rears. The ROPS mount I used is two sided. Anyway, just wanted to share and say how happy I am with Rigid (American company in AZ). I’ll get some pics at night later this evening if I can

    Also, dropped a nut into the column while adjusting the tension on my throttle. (My 3yo found this hilarious) so while I was in deep I installed the switch and wiring for my beacon. Definitely the best way to run wires to the rear of the tractor imo is along the factory harness under the floor “pad”. Gonna weld up a mount and Get that going soon. I’m going to grab power from the rear lights and use the switch as a break so I can use the lights with or without the beacon. Obviously it can be set up alone but for my purposes this will work well. I used a factory style Carlin switch in the knockout that’s in the dash

    I found them online. They’re for ballast on a race car.

    Great find on those brackets. Did you get them direct or through a place like Summit?

    You know, I don’t remember where I got them. It’s been almost a year. I think I posted something at the time. Either Amazon or EBay I think. I’ll fish through my history, find it and get back to you

    Just took some pics. It’s pitch black and misting out so I took 3 pics for perspective of my shed. The first pic is no lighting. The second pic is an 1100 lumen flashlight and the 3rd is my pair of Rigids on the 1025. Keep in mind I ordered the diffused lenses so all the light stays close to the machine. Like “extra” flood pattern, that’s why it doesn’t light up the shed 30-35 feet away

    Nice. This is exactly what the diffuser lenses are for. The only thing I may do differently is mount them up higher. With them up higher, they will be less in the way when you fold down the ROPS. And they will also be less in-your-face when looking back. Higher also tends to mitigate shadows a little better.
