    LED Headlights

    I replaced my 1025R headlight and rear work light bulbs with LED bulbs. Huge difference. These bulbs are a direct replacement.
    Now that I see that the difference is huge, I am going to replace the fender mount work light bulbs also.

    Thanks Ray! How did you figure out which bulb to swap over to? I've been unsuccessful in trying to do this in the past. All the cross reference charts I have found have given incorrect information.

    I bought a set of those to replace the bulbs in my 2720 rear work lights and was very disappointed. While the LED bulb seemed whiter and brighter, the light just didn't make it to the ground. I ended up switching to the factory LED work lights and those made a huge difference. I did not try changing the head light bulbs to LED.

    Below you can see the comparison. The halogen is on the left, LED on the right. Everything looked good until I tried using the tractor at night and that's when I discovered that the light from the LED replacement bulb just didn't go very far.

    Further research found others with a similar experience. Apparently, while simply swapping your tungsten or halogen bulb to an LED bulb may seem like an inexpensive upgrade, the results can vary.

    Are you sure that your head lights are lit in the second photo? There appears to be no light whatsoever on your brush guard.

    The 1025R head light is P/N R136239 which according to JD parts is a 50 watt type 888 bulb. This is the same bulb used in the forward / rear work light kits.

    The 1025R fender lights use bulb P/N AXE16948 which is a 37.5 watt type 862 bulb.

    They are LED. LED bulbs generate virtually no heat.

    Yep, they were on. Those are the OEM bulbs. Not very bright.
