    Hi Everyone, I may be purchasing a used 2007 JD244J wheel loader...I read on John deere site, that it comes pre-wired for a roof beacon/strobe...Does anyone have this Unit, and if so...is the "switch" already built in the console as well? And if so does it go on with any other lights or is there a special marking for it? Thanks

    If that's a deal breaker in buying the machine why not run one off the cigarette plug? Buy a exter plug if you need to use it to charge your cell phone or something.

    Backhoe I used last year I used a add a fuse put it in a key power fuse circuit, had a inline switch on the cord and off to the races.

    Grassman, Thanks for the reply! No its not abiggie at all, I consider my self very good with wiring etc...just trying to make life easier, I don't have the machine yet, saw a glimse of the control console, and read maybe its just the new 244Js that come prewired etc... by all means not a deal breaker!
