I was looking at some Craigslist postings and came across this poor 850.
I guess if the standard center mount tail light is not enough, just drill up the rear fender/ seat and add 3 more! :wallbanging:

Nothing like tilling at night :rofl2: :confuse:

Maybe the lights are hooked up to the transmission to indicate which gear you are in, Each gear was a different color :rofl2:

Do you think maybe he did something really wrong at some point in his life, and he's
very paranoid about who might sneak up behind him. Always looking over his shoulder.

It reminds me of those Harley guys back in the 50s, who had 13 taillights and reflectors all over their fringed leather saddlebags.

Saftey 1st Brian. Im guessing the 2 rectangle lights on the seat pan are running lights, the big circle red one is the brake light, and the big circle clear one is the reverse light. The mirror is for backing up so you dont gotta strain your neck or your back to look behind you when backing the tractor. If I was to restore that machine I would have to replace that old technology with some new high tech stuff and replace the mirror with a back up camera, bumper sensors, and all lights would have to go to LED's. Also for added back up protection, a back-up beeper. :thumbs: :rofl2:

The big red one is the brake light. The smaller ones are turn signals.
