Xenon HID lights improve nighttime visibility

HID lights

John Deere has taken advantage of advanced lighting technology. This lighting provides the operator with industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility.

The important part of the system is the use of Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs. These bulbs provide extreme brightness and a daylight color output for excellent definition of the field. The performance of this system allows the operator to easily view as much as 250 percent farther ahead, compared to previous tractors. A further benefit is there are no filaments in the HID bulb. Bulb life is increased by as much as 10 times vs. filament-style bulbs.

The front lighting package adds three high-intensity discharge (HID) lights to the front grille (see 1 in the image above). To further enhance all-around tractor lighting, there are two additional 65-W halogen work lights added to the left- and right-hand cab roof.
 
The center of the bulb has a semi-spot lens, and the outer light housings have a flood lens. In row-crop, the operator will notice there is a longer beam of light in the center for following marker furrows. The overall width of the lighting pattern for a non-row-crop operation will be obvious so tilled or seeded passes are easily identified. The inner, larger-diameter light assemblies are used for road transport and use conventional halogen 60-/55-W H4 bulbs. These larger light housings are also used in the base lighting system. With the dual-wattage H4 bulb, the operator will notice that there is a true automotive-style high/low function when operating in the road position.
 
The cab roof lights can be adjusted to aim to the side or rear of the tractor.

Rear FieldVision HID lighting

The premium HID lighting package (code 1720) adds two adjustable-position HID lights on the rear fenders.
 
Unlike aftermarket lights where the operating ballast is integral, these lights use a smaller housing with remote-mounted ballast.  The smaller housing decreases obstruction for a clear view looking out the rear window.  Using the light’s wide-angle flood lens will make it much easier to monitor the widest or longest equipment available.
