    Jeebus, your neighbors will report UFO's at every night mow.

I knew I wanted to use LED's because I didn't want the lights to draw too much power from the mower's battery. I looked at a lot of options, but I chose to go with some low-profile strip LEDs that use double-sided 3M tape to mount. I also purchased a pre made wiring harness to ease the install. I think it turned out pretty good.

    Lights On:

    The pictures really don't do the lights justice. They are surprisingly bright for how small they are. I am going to try to get some pictures with them on outside on the lawn tonight to show how bright they really are. I'm happy with how it turned out and I've only got about $30 into the whole project right now. Let me know what you guys think.

    Nope. My Raptor is sitting nicely in my garage waiting for me to get off my butt and go mow the yard again.

    Re: Added some LED lights to my Raptor SD

    The only problem I've had is on the actual lights. One light consists of several small strips of lights together. I had a few of the small strips stop working on 2 of the lights. But it was very easy to replace those individual lights. Easy peasy!! The lights are not very expensive, and I guess sometimes you get what you pay for. Other than that the overall light system has been GREAT!!

    Great job. Did you do any measurements of the battery / alternator to see what power you had available for the lights? I want to mount a led light bar on my small mower but I don't want to draw too much power.

    Re: Added some LED lights to my Raptor SD

    I sold my 42" Raptor, for full asking price, due to having these lights installed on them. I turned around and bought a 60" Xonei, and I immediately installed these lights on them. This time, it was MUCH easier, and it has a MUCH CLEANER look to it, with all the wires hidden away. Take a look !

































    Here is were all the wires are spliced, bundled, secured, and hidden
