Roof mounted beacon experts

I want to put a magnetic roof beacon on my NH backhoe for road transport. It already has a magnetic plate mounted to the roof and a plug in socket. However, the socket looks smaller than a regular cigar lighter socket. I believe Britax calls it a 72591 socket. My cab has a switch that energizes the roof socket.

The dealer only offers the old school rotating bulb style made by Britax. I'd prefer a flashin xenon type. Anyone know of a flashing beacon with a magnetic base and the mini plug for the smaller britax style socket? This is the closest I found on page 12 of catalogue below.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....


Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought

You can go to an AGCO dealership they can get you a mini plug. The old Fendt tractors didn't have a cigar plug but had these mini plugs for a power outlet in the cab and we had to get a min plug to convert to the bigger plug.

You mean it's like an adapter that goes from mini socket to cig lighter size?

Yeah I think you can either get the adapter or just the plug.

Also our Case tractors has the mini plug below the cigar lighter so I think you may be able to get them at a Case or New Holland dealer since they are both the same. We don't use it on the Case tractors so I forgot about these plugs in them until I was thinking about it.
