Cub Safety

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Cub Safety

Postby Yogie » Sat Jun 04, 2011 10:48 pm

I picked up a few things to add more safety lighting to our cubs.
Harbor Freight has this red and yellow magnetic light set up on sale about all the time for $10.oo
I had enough wire and trailer plug ends left over to cover that much expense.
With a little cutting here and there I now have 2 really nice safety lights that will work great any place I need them. I started to go with gator clips but I don't want to remove the battery box lid each time I use them so I'll need to add some type of fast connection, that should be pretty easy. :wink:

Also order some LED lights from a place in St. Louis called Super Bright LEDs, Inc.
I couldn't find any at the local parts store and Bear32055 pointed the direction to go. I can't wait to install them and see what happens, they also had red lights for the rear mounted light. Priced around $5 each...

Back to the safety lights, the place also sells small flashing units that I installed in the base of the magnetic lights. They also cost about $5 each.
So I have 2 nice bright flashing lights for about $10 each.... I'm thrilled with that. :{_}:

Good idea Yogie. Better leave them off until after the Tug though. You don't want any additional wind resistance. :lol:

Yogie, these are all 12 volt items, correct?

Dave, this place sells about anything you need in the LED line for 6 and 12 volts. As for the HB magnet lights the bulb looks to be a 1157 so I'm guessing it can be changed out if needed.

Check them out at www.superbrightleds.com
