CSOBeech now offers PAR36 LED Bulbs for your
"tractor" or off-road vehicle for $65 each including FREE USPS Priority Mail
shipping to US addresses (International 1st Class Shipping available @$85 each). Your purchase
supports CSOBeech.com, still a FREE resource to the Beechcraft community
PAR36 DIMENSIONAL INFO - PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING
A PAR36 bulb
dimension is 36 eighths of an inch (36 x 1/8") or nominally 4.5" in diameter.
Below is a chart for PAR bulb dimensions. Please note that some "tractors" use
the LARGER PAR46 bulb. CSOBeech.com does not yet have a PAR46 size available
, but we hope to
have them sometime in April 2017 at a comparably good CSOB value.
Please confirm the
diameter of your existing bulb to be sure it is indeed a PAR36 format. If you
know the existing Bulb PN that your tractor uses (for example GE 4509), you can
Google the PN to find a site that will give you the dimensions of your bulb.
HERE for a list of popular bulb PNs where they list the PAR size. Once again, PAR36 Bulbs are about 4.5" in diameter.

(~30* Beam Spread)
The PAR36 LED is offered in SPOT and Flood
beam patterns. The PAR36 bulb is approximately 4.5" in diameter. The Spot beam is approximately a 30* spread and the Flood beam is
approximately 60* spread and the bulb is compatible with 12V and 24V electrical

If you're still using amp sucking incandescent
bulbs in your tractor, teardrop spotlight or off-road vehicle, your electrical system will thank
you, especially if your vintage equipment still uses old-school generators,
famous for browning out during night operations

to place when my supplier has them ready.
AVAILABILITY UPDATE 3/18/2017:
I just wanted to let everyone know that today I received images of the PAR46
LED bulb design that my supplier has been working on.
Finally, tangible proof that the CSOBeech PAR46 will soon be a reality. The
unit is reported to contain 36 LEDs for a whopping total power output of 36
watts. This is twice the number of LEDs and power of the currently successful
CSOBeech PAR36 bulb. The PAR46 is expected to be first available in FLOOD version but
will also be produced in SPOT version as well but I don't have timing on the
SPOT production as yet.
While I don't have exact pricing yet, it is expected to be in keeping with
CSOBeech values and much lower priced than the currently available ~$145-$330 PAR46
LED bulbs currently offered in the market.
Please stay tuned and as soon as I have word on availability of production
units I'll be back to you.
Thanks for being a CSOBeech visitor.

the CSOBeech PAR36 FLOOD LED making the below brightness on about 1.5 amps on a 12V
system. This shows the roughly 60* beam spread of the FLOOD bulb.
