Has anyone converted their tractor's lights over to LEDs?

If so what parts did you use?

I added LED's to the ROPS, 2 front, 2 back. I used Grote LED's - cost was absurd. Used JD factory switches - cost was fine.

I've been looking to find replacement bulbs for the headlights, but haven't got around to it yet. As far as I can tell they are GE H4 style, but consensus is that LED replacements may be pretty dim.

A long term member of a boating forum I visit makes LED spreader lights that seem to be very useful for tractors. His lights are highly recommended by several people on the tht forum. I am thinking of buying some of these for my 110 and camper. The black spreader lights seem to be the best ones to use.

If those throw out some decent light, they are a GREAT deal.

If you do get those spreader lights, let us know how they work.

I've been eyeing the JW Speaker Model 736's....100% direct replacement for the JD lights..same OEM...Same Size, mounting, etc..
BUT at 160.00+ a pop, I can afford to change the bulbs in my stock halogens for many years....
Model 701
Model 736

Lucky for me I don't need lighting very often at night. I would assume that for the guys needing to blow snow after dark or before going to work this is a bigger deal.

For the price of the led lights I would have to see them first. I will consider trying out one of these for my camper first and go from there.

Dave; Yeah at $160 each, they are expensive, but they are also OEM compatible so they would look stock, but bright as hell apparently.:fed:

Are you guys saying that these go in the factory headlight spot, or on the ROPS as worklights??

Which ones?
The ones I posted are made by the same OEM that supplies Deere with the halogen lights used as the worklights...Front & Rear on cab models....so a person could buy those to replace the factory Deere ones and during the day you'd not even know they werent factory.

At $350+ I really would like to see them in action before ploppin down the cash...
