My advice be very careful selecting LED bulbs, there are all kinds of choices some have Lumen ratings and some don’t, some actually work great but many aren’t even as good as Halogen even though at first glance they appear to be much brighter

Out taking advantage of feeling better from my bout with covid.
I've been pulling , or had somebody pull out some 36" Dia water oaks. Started to take the dirt that was piled up and fix the driveway.

I'm using my Box blade and can't figure why its not floating when I have the toplink pulled all the way in. Then I looked at where the front edge is supposed to be providing support, and it worn down a good 3". So my blade it on the ground.
I ordered up some plate and strap to weld onto the sides.

Has anyone sourced a replacement halogen bulb for the LS Cab work lights? Mine is an XR4155HC but .. likely same on all cabs?

They're stamped 12 volts / 37.5 watts .. but number is unreadable.

Dealer is two hours away so I'm hoping to find some online.

Thanks!

I replaced all of mine with LED lights. Wasn’t too hard but they did result in significant radio interference ( something I haven’t addressed yet)

Drove through my local LS dealer lot yesterday just to see what they might have in stock, 7 brandnew MT357’s all with cabs some with FEL and some without, they also had about 5 smaller models, a bunch of LS rear mowers in different sizes, along with a bunch of other LS attachments.

Seems like maybe equipment isn’t as hard to get as it had been, the local New Holland dealer also had quite a bit of new equipment on the lot.

My local dealer has many LS tractors from MT125 & up on his lot and all kinds of attachments.

Shipping outlook encouraging for 2022 so hopefully the shortages of all kinds of tractors and other stuff will continue to improve.

They are all the same PGJ13 base. Pick the wattage you want and go. You can do better than the stock halogen bulbs.

I agree on the base. The 862's fit my needs. I use them more to be seen if driving down the road .. during the day. I rarely use tractors at night .

Several folks have reported bad radio interference .. from the LED replacements.
