    Can tghe lights be wired up without use of a battery? I'd like to put a flood on my Bob-Cat WB (with electric clutch).

    Depends on the motor, if it is a pull motor and has a 12v output. You can tap into that line and add a switch. I have a Scag zero turn machine and added lights on the fenders. I ran the line to the battery. If you tap directly to the battery, the lights will work all the time. If you tap the 12v line from the motor, the lights will only work if the motor is running. I have a 14HP BS motor on my walk behind that does not have a battery or electric start. But the motor does have an 12v line coming out of the harness.

    How old and how many hours are on that Scag! Looks like some good old iron you got there. Taking care of equipment really pays off doesnt it?
