I made a power cable for work lights / spot lights on my 1083. I made a 35’ and a 40’ power cable. The work lights / spot lights I used are:
Military Work lamps 24 volt. NSN 6230-01-228-9577. P/N 1497550.
I plugged the power cable in to the 12 volt rotating amber warning light connector on the back of the cab. I replaced the 24 volt bulbs with 12 volt bulbs. You can buy a receptacle and wire it & mount it anywhere you like and plug your light connector in to it. I cannot see the Amphenol type connector on your work light but you can match up the receptacle end using that #. Here’s a list of material I used for the work lights I had:
1) Amphenol connector 97-3101A-12S-3S. This connector plugs in to the end of the work light.
2) Back shell clamp 97-3057-1004-1.
3) Amphenol protective cap (to keep dirt & debris out of the power cord when not in use. 10-825915-012.
4) Power cable 16/2 SJTOOW. I used 35’ and 40’. You can make your power cord as long or short as you want.
You could wire your power cable to a 12 or 24 volt source depending on what bulbs you want to use.
