Don, If you like lots of lights try some LED 's. You can a whole bunch of those with very little draw. Check out this thread.
http://www.wheelhors...efresh-rebuild/ It's rather lengthy but it might give you some ideas for lights.

Thanks ,
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 am glad to hear you are making progress! You know, only three of my tractors have working lights...

Thanks !!
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 .

Bought tractor no. 9 today !! , 27 hp kohler twin cylinder with 800 hours . No Rust anywhere !and it is 4 wheel drive and it articulates and came with a nice hydraulic lift and hydraulic angle front blade and a nice front loader bucket with dump cylinders and a 60 inch front mower deck.
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.

Since you're telling us it is 25 hp, you got the gas-powered Kubota and not the 21 hp diesel? I think you're really going to like the Steiner. Talk about a simple, bullet-proof front attachment system. Did you get the front scoop for it, or the actual loader? Those loaders are spendy, but they work very well. Only downfall with the loader is the loss of hydraulic power if you raise the boom and turn at the same time.

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

It is the 27hp kohler twin, sorry about the wrong numbers. It is the hydraulic dump scoop as I guessed that was their version of a compact loader. Wrong again , grrrrr. I thought $2,500.00 was a great buy with the mower, front blade and front bucket scoop and 800 hours. But what do I know, ha,ha. I am also excited to try to mount my extra 54 inch 2 stage snowblower on the front. Just pushing snow with the front blade is going to be so fun in my driveway and the 2 neighbors driveways. Now the mini 4020 can retire after just two snowstorms, ha,ha. I am so exited like a little kid !! If that is wrong I don't want to be right .

That's one nice looking tractor, bet that Kohler will handle the load.

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.

Thanks
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.

Don, here's some ads to compare to. Notice the last one, which would be more comparable to yours than some of the others. The first one is a jaw-dropper.

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.
