I talked to the dealer about adding them to our '09 9570, and he said that there is not a kit out for them yet, but a lot of people are asking about them, so they may come with one. I just decided to make my own instead for a little over $100, which is probably a lot cheaper than what deere would sell them for.

Today, those beacons are far too overused. Back when they started, 13 years ago, they were to alert the operator as well as the truck or chaser bin driver when the combine was full and needed to be unloaded.

Now I see those blasted lights on, the whole time the bine is running, full or not.


What gives?

I also rigged some up last year, we run four combines so I used four different colors. It makes it really easy to distinguish which combine is which. They are never used on the road because of the variety of colors, but they make for quite a light show at night. Very easy to rig up tho.

My Leion has these, we borrowed my neighbors truck (long story
) the other night, so no radio, those beacons are quite handy.
On a Lexion you can select road, 70% bin full, or off.
WTF!
Must be the only Class alarm you can actually use to YOUR advantage.
Well yeah, it is!

have put on many of them and I use the kit for an 8000 series tractor, they bolt right on and there is a couple of ways to get power to the light and have modified and installed another one above engine for grain tank full beacon for grain cart driver. Made it a ground circuit with switch in bin GL
