    I have lights on my Walker and when the days get shorter it helps to have lights to finish up. I bought the kit from Walker. The majority of the wiring was already there, I just bolted the light bar on and plugged them in. I think the kit was only about $150, I'm sure that someone with some ingenuity could make one alot cheaper.

    I think Bad Boy's are like $100-$125 (they're made to plug and play). Like the previous poster said, if your machine isn't under warranty and you have decent wiring skills, pick up a pair of halogen lights from Northern Tool or TSC for $40-$50 and wire them in yourself to save a few buckolaz.

    Hey here is a pic, had one already on my camera for someone else. It is pretty much just a 6 wire install with the harness. Pretty cool to have halogen lights to mow with. This set up is $149, but it is pretty easy to put on your mower.

    halogen lights gobble up a bunch of power...+the power needed for the PTO may= discharging your battery & ruining your PTO. I think Hustler has come out with a set of super bright LED lights to retro-fit to their mowers(for those who want them) According to hustler, these new LEDs will not drain the battery + provide plently of lums to get the job done.
