Warning Light Makes Road Travel Safer
“It greatly increases visibility on the road to warn passing or oncoming traffic,” says Kevin Mulder, K&M Mfg., Renville, Minn.
The Nite-Gard warning light consists of a telescoping metal bar with reflective tape on both sides, and a large amber light attached to the end that operates off the tractor or combine’s battery. By loosening a knob, the arm can be extended from 36 to 52 in. The unit mounts on the machine’s fender or cab door post using a breakaway mounting system.
Four different mounting brackets are available. Two of them are generic to fit virtually any tractor or combine, depending on whether you prefer a horizontal or vertical mount system. Specific mounting brackets are available for Deere 7000 and 8000 series tractors, and for Deere 30 through 60 series tractors equipped with SoundGard cabs.
“It’s especially valuable for tractors pulling implements, because you can bring the warning lights out to the widest point of the implement,” says Mulder, adding that the unit meets all ANSI and ASAE S279.16 specifications.
The Nite-Gard comes preassembled for easy installation. It retails for $325 plus S&H.
