    Which ZTR mowers can you get with lights, or light kits? I know the Hustler super z cannot have lights because of a voltage issue . Does anyone know if the Kubota ZD series has light kits available?

    I see a lot of grasshopper mowers with factory lights. I wonder why this is not standard on most mowers. In the fall when I'm working a lot of overtime I find myself mowing, and doing leaf work after dark quite often.

    You can get a light kit for the Deere Ztracs - about $175 installed I think.

    Just get yourself a cheep set of fog lights and hook them up to a deep cycle mareen battery. That way it doesn't void your mower warranty.

    I made my own bracket and mounted a light on my Lazer for a total cost of less than 20 bucks. I just ran a fusable link and had it run directly from the battery. I had no issues with warranty. I've had alot of people ask about it as it looks like it is factory. It's mounted high enough to clear the footpedal without shadowing, and is well out of the way.

    My Grasshopper does and I use it for my lawn almost every week since I spend most of my time mowing everyone elses during the day. I agree with Chuckers on the bagger and I can't wait to spend the additional 1400 bucks to get mine. May be sooner than later if the rain doen't stop.

    BushHog Ztr's have lights as a standard item. Straight from the factory with lights, how about that.
