  • aftermarket led headlights on an 8N
  • I know they aren't correct as compared to originals, but has anyone tried the 4" 27 watt round led flood lights sold by numerous sellers on eBay as an "upgrade" especially since I have no lights on my newly purchased 8N. I have some on my Kubota and they light up the night!
    Thanks

  • The 4" would be too small for my taste.

    Not sure if this picture will do it justice. A tree came down in the driveway last week. Had to get the logging chain and drag it out of the way with the 8N.

    This is a 6 volt tractor putting out plenty of light. These are 6 volt h3 LED bulbs, in h3 conversion housings, that just barely fit inside the original headlight housings. I did have to bend the bulb terminals to the side and bolt wire terminals on with teeny tiny screws. the only downside is the h3 plastic lenses are flat across and will probably get scratched up driving thru brush.

    The tail lights are also LED bulbs in standard 8N tail light housings.

  • In the current N-NEWS there is an ad for STEINER TRACTOR that shows a new 12-V LED Lamp that will directly replace the 4419 12V Sealed Beam Lamp so need to buy new housings too. HERE'S the LINK:

  • As long as it has been converted to 12 volts you should be ok. I'm running 55watt quartz halogen lights on my 9N and love them.

  • Where did you get your LED lights? Do they fit in the original light housing? or are they a complete light and housing? Do you have a part number and where to check in to them?

    Thanks

  • Yes it has already been converted to 12v
