LED light install help.
Just general issues addressed to help you make the install as easy as possible. Note that some of the kits have installation instructions included in the order email - or on the product page as a pdf download.
This is a general instruction sheet for the install of LED work lights on equipment.
1) LED lights are polarity sensitive, if your lights do not work, try switching the wires.
2) If you LED light flickers when on, you are most likely not having enough power
to the light, bad connections, wire length and size can be the cause of this.
3) If you have LED chips that does not come on in the light, it can be low power like above (2)
or it can be failed chips.
4) Keep the light cooling fins clean, if the light can not cool it will fail.
5) If you are installing PAR-36 lights on a tractor, we suggest using all flood on the rear and
trapezoid and Hi-Lo as the front facing lights. Some larger tractors and kits use trapezoid beam
on the rear facing lights also.
6) Install of the PAR-36 lights work best if you use a screwdriver to pry out the old light from the
housing, and then install the include spade connectors on the wires, check that the light works
and then push the light back into the grommet using the screwdriver to pry the rubber over the
7) LED-660 / LED-666 - install the selected bracket type on the light and use the adapter wire
to connect the power. The brackets are made so they mostly fit into the OEM “U” clamp, this
makes the install much easier as you do not have to remove the OEM “U” clamp / bracket.
On some installs (CAT/Challenger) you will need a washer or 2 to close the gap as the OEM “U”
clamp is too wide.
8) LED Bulbs : Make sure to open / spread the cooling cables on the rear of the bulb, if the
bulb can not cool - it will fail.
9) LED lights are rated / advertised by LED wattage, this does not mean that the light actually
use the watt rated - the controller will lower the wattage to keep the LED chips from burning out.
Example our LED-660 is rated 60 watt, but uses around 45 watt. See spec online if needed.
10) Light pattern - 80 degree is a wide / diffused beam type
60 degree is a more universal flood beam, better distance than 80 degree.
40 degree is a trapezoid beam - more distance - less width.
25 degree is close to a spot beam, but offers a more usable light pattern.
11) You can mount the lights upside down - it does not change the light pattern.
12) Enjoy your new LED lights and thank you for your business.
