LED work lights are available in various sizes and types, making them suitable for a wide range of vehicles. This variety makes LED work lights suitable for various applications, including specific agricultural LED work lights for agricultural machinery, tractors, and tractors. If you work long days, it often happens that you work before sunrise or after sunset. In such situations, high-quality LED lighting is crucial for carrying out your work.

LED work light agriculture: an increase in use

In recent years, the increase in LED work lights in agriculture has significantly risen. It's only logical, we believe at TRALERT®. LED work lights offer several advantages when, for example, compared to traditional halogen work lighting. For instance, when looking at the housing of LED work lights for agriculture, it becomes apparent that the work lighting is often equipped with a robust aluminum casing. The biggest advantage of this is that the lights can withstand more wear and tear. This is in contrast to traditional halogen work lighting or cheap LED work lights. In addition to the housing of the lights, LED work lights for agriculture also have a higher light output and lower power consumption.

Inspection of LED work lights for agricultural vehicles

When you connect LED work lights to a tractor or harvester, different rules apply than when you connect them to a truck, trailer, or trailer. A tractor does not have a roadworthiness inspection (MOT/TÜV), and in addition, tractors usually operate on their own terrain or land. However, drivers of tractors or agricultural vehicles must also comply with the official (Dutch) laws and regulationsFor instance, a tractor must be equipped with mandatory low beams, parking lights, turn signals, taillights, brake lights, and a left-side mirror. Additionally, every tractor must have two or four non-triangular red retro-reflectors mounted at the rear. Furthermore, agricultural vehicles must be equipped with an amber rotating or flashing light when the vehicle is wider than 2.60 meters or when work is being carried out on or along the public road.

As you can read above, LED work lights agriculture are not a mandatory part of the lighting kit. In fact, it is not allowed to use LED work lights on public roads. They may only be used while working or on your own property.

Replacing halogen work lights on your tractor or agricultural vehicle

Switching from halogen lighting to LED lighting is extremely simple thanks to the various connectors offered by TRALERT® with the purchase of the lighting. Most TRALERT® work lights come standard with a Deutsch connector. This makes replacing the LED lamps effortless. You simply need to disconnect the old lighting and connect the new lighting.

LED working lights tractor for cabin

When working in the dark, it is essential to be able to see what is happening in front of you. To ensure that the road surface is well illuminated in the dark, we recommend placing two powerful LED work lights with a narrow beam of light. This provides good visibility over a longer distance. The LED work light that is excellent for this purpose is the LED work light TRSW12275FB. This LED work light features the latest Reflector Facing Technology, which ensures efficient light distribution, eliminating stray light. Due to the Philips LEDs being placed in opposite directions, a highly focused light beam is created on this agricultural LED work light.

In addition to the front of the agricultural machine, the rear should also be equipped with powerful lighting. We recommend using two LED work lights with a beam angle of 60+ degrees for this purpose. This not only illuminates the tractor but also the attached machinery. The agricultural LED work lights we recommend for this are the WR-1317 and the TRSW12274FB. Both of these work lights are pictured in the image above. The WR-1317 is R23 certified, allowing it to be used as a reversing light as well.

In addition to work lights, it is legally required to mount a good set of LED rear lights on the vehicle. As you can read above, the vehicle must be equipped with at least turn signals, tail lights, and brake lights. A good combination LED rear light is the 140ESTIM. Just like the pictured LED agricultural work lights, these rear lights are among the best-selling products in the TRALERT® range.

This worklight features Epistar LEDs with a bright white light output.
