    I'm looking for a strobe kit that plugs into the headlights on lawn tractor. I have a John Deere LX266 that is used in the winter for clearing walks, etc. I've seen this strobe kit on someone elses lawn tractor, and it flashed in the headlights, but i don't know where to get this. any help would greatly be appreciated. -thanks

    i dont think you`ll find a specific set for the tractor.you can use a hideaway strobe light system if your tractor`s charging system can handle it..strobe lights dont draw alot of amps but depending on what else runs electrically,it may matter.find out what the charging system put`s out(amps) and then look at what you`ll be running like headlights,tailights etc and add up what everything draws(amps).that will give you an idea of how many hideaways you can run.you can find hideaway strobe kit`s for 1.2,3 and more lights depending on what your battery and charging system will handle.do a search here on strobes and you will find at least one member from this board that was selling set up`s. i bought one and am pleased with it,dont remember his name.there are some real cheap set ups out there too so be careful what you buy..a good 90 watt 4 head set up is around 200 dollars.i run an atv with a blade for my own driveway.because i use the winch to lift the blade i dont run the headlights and i wouldnt be able to put strobes on it as the charging system only puts out like 200 watts.. i live on a dead end so im safe running it..good luck

    Im not exactly sure if you saw a set of hideaways in the headlights or if you saw a traffic flasher, which does like a wig wag of the high beams on the headlights like on alot of emergency vehicals. If you could do it on a tractor but if you could it would be a lot cheaper then doing hideaways. You can get the flasher for like aroind 40 - 60 dollars and just have to wire it in. Check at www.galls.com and look under warning lights.
