  • Blinking Tree Proof Tractor light video;

    If you're interested you can see my tree proof tractor lights blinking at the link posted.

    The lights are out of sequence but I left them that way, I think it's more distracting to drivers coming up on you when the lights are out of sequence.

      The upper lights have their own flasher that allows for different flashing combinations, the fender-mounted LED light flashers do the same, I bought them off Amazon?

      I don't have/need a rear bumper/hitch/chain box, my pickup has hooks on the front and tool box in the bed of it.

        YES you do. It works really nice with the 3 point to grab trailers & move them. How many hours you got on the flashers? Most of that crap seems to cook off in the first 4207 flashes.

          I don't know for sure but I would estimate 3 or 4 years of mowing seasons, but if and when they do wear out, I know where I can buy more just like em. Their American made Whelen lights, not Chinese garbage.

          Without lights, I have had cars pass by me while mowing along the highway at highway speeds less than three feet away, with lights on, in the mirror I see drivers pull over to the middle of the road 500 feet before they get to me.

            You got the Move Over Law out there? Had it here for about a year and a half and oddly it's working.

              Not in these parts that I know of, if we do our part it's pretty safe to operate equipment along the highway.

              When I set trailers, or make lifts with the bucket, I drop a 2" ball I keep in the tractors toolbox in a hole I drilled in the bucket.

                    Post 1982 production direct from Yanmar after they inked the deal with Mother Deere to stop selling tractors in the US in exchange for huge engine sales to Deere.

                    My Yanmar is a 81 240D with 2 cylinders. Dragged a 10 wheel log truck with it some years back. Only weak link in those tractors is they have sufficient torque at the final to break 2 gears, usually the 2 driving the RR tire.
                    Keep an eye on the wheel bolts too, they will self loosen.

                    Your loader is probably a Woods.

                      All I know is it thinks it's a thoroughbred coming down the stretch, it never gives up. I bought it as a brand new-demonstrator in May 1992, it's one of the best investments hands down I ever made. My wheels have not been a problem so far, but I'll have them all checked now that you mentioned it.
