    5085M LED replacement bulbs

    I noticed awhile back that there was a post with a list/recommendations for LED replacement bulbs for smaller JDís. Does any such list/resource exist for a 5085M? Iíve attempted to research replacements on my own, and the more I look, the more confused I get. Eventually I would like to replace all of them, but right now I need replacements for the OEM spot/flood lights that are mounted on the fenders and ROPS. I know that they make sealed LED replacements for those, but they are $$$. Iíd like to just try a bulb replacement if possible. Thanks.

    Do you know the number of the stock bulb your tractor is currently using?
    I could probably cross reference that to a suitable bulb for ya.

    Most, including myself found LED replacement bulbs to be lacking in performance. The issue is not limited to the 5085M. Itís because the reflectors are designed for halogen bulbs. When I replaced mine the LED bulb ďlookedĒ brighter to my eye but the light never seemed to reach the ground.

    I eventually ended up replacing the entire work light with a LED unit which worked much better.

    I guess the LED unit it is for the work lights at least. Thanks for the info.

    Iíll probably go with the LED worklight units based on jgaymanís advice, but Iíll see what the other bulb #ís are (headlights, etc) and replace them. Iíll advise. Thanks.
