    Hey guys. I am about to purchase some lights for my Turf Tiger and when I went to the Scag website, it says that it comes with 2 lights at 38w each for a total of 76 watts. BUT - it says the Cheetah's lights are 50w each for total of 100 watts. Any idea why/what the difference? I'm asking because I found the light kit on ebay and it says for TT, but also says it is 100 watts. Want to know why there is a difference and if it will cause any problems. Below is the text from the Scag site. Thanks!!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    The optional halogen light kit fits 2002 through current model Z-Cat, Tiger Cub, Tiger Cat, Wildcat, Turf Tiger, Cheetah and Sabre Tooth Tiger mowers.

    The kit comes with all the necessary mounting brackets and wiring harnesses for a top-quality installation. The on/off switch is located on the right side light mounting bracket and can easily be reached from the operator's position.

    Two super bright halogen lights deliver 38 watts each for a total of 76 watts of lighting power (Cheetah has 100 total watt light system). The lights are mounted towards the center of the mower, providing properly aimed light when turning and their location keeps them well protected from branches and other debris.

    Talk to your Scag dealer today and brighten up your Scag mower!

    To give you an idea of brightness, one reviewer said they are brighter than the 100w halogen headlights on his truck. He has a comparison pic of the review also.

    Those look like they would do the job! How was mounting them, doing the wiring, etc? I don't even know where the wires would go. I am not dumb and think I have a decent knack for things, but did not want to rig up something when the OEM bolted right up.

    Would you mind telling me more about how you did it, where the switch is, etc.? Also, can you post a pic of how they are on the TT? Thanks man!

    Hooking up lights is very simple. You can use any switch like a toggle or rocker switch. I run the wiring to the switch then straight to the battery. Mount the switch on your control panel or somewhere convenient. A toggle switch only requires 1 hole to be drilled and you can get toggles that light up when the power is on.

    My son likes wiring up stuff so he done these for me because I am away from home right now.

    These would work good on the TT control panel. I use the same switch as a nitrous activation switch on my racing quads. You only drill 1 hole to mount it and it looks clean and professional when you are done. Red LED Light Carbon Fiber CAR Automotive Illuminattoggle Spst Toggle On/off Switch Button

    Gotcha. That seems easy enough. How and where did you mount the lights? Any extra brackets needed, etc?

    I'm not sure where my son mounted the lights but I think he put them below the folding point on the ROPS. I told him I wanted to be able to use the lights even if the ROPs is folded. You could drill a small hole on the inside of your ROPS and run the wiring on the inside. This would make for a clean install and also protect the wires.
