Why should I switch to LED?



Why should I switch to LED? 

Light has come a long way since the candle days; from incandescent bulbs to halogen bulbs, and now LED’s run the game.
So, you’ve probably heard that LEDs are efficient and last a long time, but what is the hype all about? Should you make the
change to LED bulbs on your tractor? These facts may help you make that decision. 

LED bulbs stand the test of time. LED bulbs usually rank between 30,000-40,000 hours of life, with zero maintenance. Whereas, Halogen bulbs only last around 500 hours. 

Looking at the price, there is a temptation to buy the halogen bulb, because halogen bulbs can be significantly cheaper, but
remember that the LED bulb can last eighty times longer! 

Let’s take a bulb that would fit a John Deere 2040 for example, the LED bulb would cost $39.99 and last between 30,000-40,000 hours of life, coming out to $.001 of cost per hour (less than a thousandth
of a cent).

The Halogen bulb would cost $16.00 and last 500 hours of life, coming out to $.032 per hour (almost ⅓ of a cent). This is a massive difference in cost when added up over time.

All types of LEDs offer light that mimics sunlight, so the light is easy on the eyes and reduces fatigue. 

The next time your bulbs go out, consider making the switch to LED!
