When I saw the “Auxbeam 5D 42 inch curved light bar” for the first time, I thought this light bar would be a great solution for our old John Deere tractors. This light bar is made of fisheye lens which is really beautiful for the appearance. Our tractors were made in the 1980’s when the company (Any tractor company) did not think about lighting. So there were just a few small lights on the front and back of the tractor, which cannot satisfy our need for working at night. I knew a light bar on top of the cab would be perfect to see everything in front of the tractor. So I began to search the greatest light bar on the internet. Then Auxbeam come into my eye. I have seen many different videos on Youtube showing how wonderful their light bars are and checking their website. Then I decide to choose some for our tractors.
We modified some brackets to help support the light bars out of some old steels we had laying around. We also used the wiring that you can get with the light bars, and wired them into the baler monitor wiring harness to achieve the full 12 volts needed since the tractor has two 6 volt battery. After we got the full 12 volts to the light bar we clicked the switch.
The light bar worked much better than expected! Night and Day difference! It has truly changed our lives. When we run our equipment in the dark, it was difficult to tell where the next pass was. Now we can see where we need to go next without a problem! I would highly recommend these lights for agricultural use! To see how we put these lights on check out our two YouTube channels called “iowadairyboys” and “IDB Repairs”
