Use a Bicycle Light as a Headlight for Your Snowblower

As my Dad used to say when I was a kid "there's an easy way and there's a hard way". Usually he was scolding us for not listening to him, but in this case it applies to your snowblower light request.

There doesn't seem to be too many snow blower headlight kits available, so the hard, but cool way to do it is to direct wire a light to your snow blower's alternator. This site has a nice thread on the tactic. Essentially, check if your thrower has an alternator, put a meter on it to see how many volts you can get from it, and go to your local home improvement center to pickup a light to connect to it. An on/off switch is optional.

The faster and simpler solution is to mount the most powerful bike light you can find. They're small, can use rechargeable batteries, are plentiful, are relatively cheap and are dead simple to install.

I need a light on my own Craftsman snow blower and I'm going with a dual bike light approach, one one each handle. No more snow blowing at 4 pm just to get it in before dusk. Now I can wait for the snow to stop and do it just one time.

If you decide instead to have a snow removal service do the plowing for you, fill out this form to find some local professionals:
