Scag light kit? Worth it?

Fall clean-ups were great money this year. But I seemed to run out of light before I ran out of energy. Thinking about a Scag light kit for my Wildcat. Anybody have any thoughts on these? How much are they?

Dont hold me to it, but I think some where around $160-$180 , which I think is over rated in my book

I have a light kit on my walker I can't tell you how much it has helped. I have a few commercial props that I can mow when ever so I go out in the summer sometimes about 5am to beat the heat. Even if you use them a few times to finish up last job for the day think of the drive time not having to come back. It has been a good investment for us.

You can make your own for cheaper. Buy your own brackets and lights. Or you could make it yourself.

I agree Make Your Own! I paid $22 for 2 lights. We drilled some holes and they are all mounted. I figure an extra $5 for for wire and a toggle switch. For less than $30, it is easy and really nice on the pocket book.

Sounds like making my own should be easy. Where do you tie in for power? At the battery itself?

Check out the thread titled "Mower Lights" from 01-22-06. work_it posted some photos (post #9 I think) of lights installed on a Tiger. I'm going to try his method on mine. Thanks for the help...

I have a Walker with the Walker light kit($125.00) and I have the Scag light kit on my sabre tooth($150.00). They both work very well, however the Scag could use a third light on the front to eliminate a slight shadow directly in front of the deck. It runs directly off the battery thru a fuse and toggle switch. The Walker lights go thru the ignition switch to a toggle switch. I frequently do large commercials at night, especially when its 95 degrees during the day.

I'm going to Walmart today and look at some options. I think I have a ATV light kit I bought a few years ago that I never used. That might work as well.
