I got the 9 lights hooked up on the mini loader and the 11 lights hooked up on the jd 455 so i am probably good for now . But the next lighting project I will sure look into led lights. It will be rare I will plow snow at night , maybe a couple times just for fun to try out the lights. So the alternator should do fine.

I enjoy sharing my weekly projects. I got the lights done today on the mini loader. So the jd 455 lights are now done too. Tomorrow I got to build the manual wiper for the Waldon and then I will start putting some working lights on the mini 4020 next week . Going to put the rectangular ones under the fenders in the front and two on the top of the fenders in the rear with flashers .

I will adapt my 54 inch two stage snowblower to the front of it. At 25 hp it should clear my driveway just fine. After some negotiating on the price I was exstatic to buy it. It is kinda corny looking but great fun to drive . Can't wait to push some snow with it. More pics of it tomorrow.

I don't think I even want to know what you paid for it. That's an awfully large grin on your face.

I thought $2,500.00 was a great buy with the mower, front blade and front bucket scoop and 800 hours.
I could sell just the tractor around here for $3,000. That whole package? $6,000, easy. Man, I'm going shopping in your neighborhood.
Looking forward to more pics tomorrow.

I wasn't positive about the price but when I saw the cool hydraulic blade and the cool little hydraulic scoop/dumping bucket I figured they were worth at least $600.00 each. The 60inch mower deck worth $300.00 . That put the Steiner tractor price at $1,500.00 .
I figured that awesome 27hp twin engine worth $1,000.00 . Scrapping the axles , frame hydraulic cylinders , etc. for another $500.00 so I knew i could get my $2,500.00 back . Thanks for confirming it was a good deal so I can tell Deb . I told her it was a great buy ! Then I added the fact it had never been used in salt and it only has 800 hours so i just didn't think I could go wrong.
I can't wait to plow snow with it.

On the last one, the family that started Steiner sold the business to Schiller Grounds Care in 2006. Then they decided to get back into it, and are making Ventrac. Interchangeable attachments.

I can't wait to get out and start digging up the lawn with that blade,
