You need to take out the bulb and order the HID bulb replacement. If it's the same oval housing that's on the sprayers I believe that it's a 9006. My kits ran about $160 for a set of bulbs and ballasts
I actually replaced all six roof lights with HIDs. I just stuck the ballasts under the roof, didn't tie or stick them to anything. They are not going anywhere. michael you should order kits from R & H Farms, they are located in Rosenort you can get a PAIR of 55w HID kits to fit your combine(9005 style) for $176CAD last i checked. Most kits are 35w, they also sell those for $148/pair. Great guys to deal with, been using their kit for two years now and I keep buying more for other equipment. PM me if you want contact info.
Edit: My bad, the the style you need is 9005 likes others have mentioned NOT 9006
They are 9005 bulbs in the oval roof lights, and 9006 for the square lights. Alot of guys are going with the DDM tuneing kits with 4500K bulbs but i would highly suggest finding another kit that has 4300k bulbs. I really like the DDM ballasts but a 4300k bulb is a much better color and has more visible lumens. I put a set of DDMs with 4500k bulbs in our 9670s and they seam really blue compaired to the factory HID lights so i switched the bulbs with a set of 4300k bulbs from one of the other kits that i have and the light was almost identical to the factory HID lights and seemed amazingly brighter. Even dad noticed how much better the 4300k bulbs were.
We have six hid lights in our 9750STS. It is like daylight out in front. I found that there are alot less shadows because the light is so bright. That way you don't have that annoying shadow that the reel makes as it is spinning. I think you all know what shadow i'm talking about. We have the 4300K bulbs and i think they work great. They are 50W bulbs. I don't think you would want anything more than a 4300K bulb.
Farmerjones - All our lights come on at the same time. We have had no problems at all with that.
Since everything on the 70 series is all CAN bus and computer controlled if I turn then lights on and start the engine it will kick a couple of them off, seems to be too much of a draw and the computer turns them off. If the engine is running you can turn them all on at the same time and no problems. I was debating putting HIDs in the stubble lights but I thought that might be a little out of hand.
So all i would have to do is just take the old bulb out n but the new one in everything will work i don't need any extra wireing the original wireing harrness will plug rite in. Then for being a rear work light which one would u suggest using the 35W or 55W. Then on that DDM site i can only find the kit is there a place were i can order just the bulb or do i need the whole wireing kit. Thanks again for the info.
We ordered a kit from Mobile HID for one of our combines that didn't have them, got the 4300's and they were crazy easy to put in , headliner off ,ballasts in the ballast hole that are already there pop the grommets out to pull wire back and forth. Plug and play. We do have interference on the AM radio band though on a few stations. You will need a kit that has the ballast though.
The thin square lookin things are the Ballasts. You take your factory bulb and remove it and that harness plugs into the black connector(see picture) of the ballast. The bulb is installed in the factory lamp housing and then it connected to the blue & red wires in the picture. There is no cutting of wires or splicing. Alot of the kits come with an extension to be able to mount the ballast farther away but it is usually not required. You MAY have an extra harness in your kit that will not be used.
For those guys having problems with all the lights coming on at once usually all you have to do is let the ones that are on warm up for about 30 sec or so then cycle the lights and they should all come on then. We have 8 of them on our 2188 and 13 on our stx quadtrac and they all come on at once on the tractor but on the bine we often need to cycle them
I need your guys opinion and input. So for rear fender work lighs on our four wheel drive what would you guys run for wattage and color would you go with a 55W and 4500 or what would you run. Thanks again.
JD combines with square lights use a 9006 bulb, JD combines with oval lights and 8x20 8x30 9x20 9x30 oval work lights take a 9005 bulb, 8x00 8x10 and the small ovals on a 60 or 70 series combine take a 880 style bulb. Find a kit that uses 4300k bulbs, that will be the closest to factory white (4100K) as you will find anything else will start to be like a blue light. I like the slim ballasts but the regular ones work fine too. I get mine on ebay here but there are many other places out there. This place has all the main styles out there 35w normal ballast, 35w slim, 55w kits, Hi/Low beam bi-xenon kits,24V kits ( I use these for our dozers)
The brand that the factory puts on is Speaker and they are about $450. The only thing that i can see why they are so much more is that they have a internal ballast to keep it out of the weather. Otherwise i don't know why they are more. I was lookin on the tractor that i want to put a kit on for the rear work lights just to see how it would go i don't see why it wouldn't work to put the ballast under the fender where all the other lighting wires are. Anybody have any input or ideas on this. Thanks again.
