Heated grips

Can you put heated grips on a compact 22?
Is the alternator powerful enough to handle it?

Read this. If you currently have a light, and know anything about wiring, you can have a setup with either full heat, full light, or 1/2 heat and 1/2 lights. And it is very in-expensive if you can wait for the boat from China.

Don't get the really cheap ones from China. I did that and they are really cheap. Better to get the Ariens or Toro factory units or some mid priced ones for motorcycles or snowmobiles.

Just my .

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

My cheap Chinese ones are still working fine. I usually have to turn them off after awhile because my hands get too warm. But, I can't use them at night because my alternator does not put out enough power to drive the HHGs and light to a sufficient brightness. But, I usually don't snow blow at night anyways.

The Ariens heated grips are on. Man do they put out some heat.
Instructions say to install grips with wires facing dash but the auger n drive levers nip at the wiring.
Ended up installing grips with the wires facing down.


Model 920013 LCT 208 CC 60 watt alt.

Beerghost, did you find your alternator specs online? I have 2016 model Compact 24 and am thinking I'd like to add heated grips.
Also, did you purchase directly from Ariens or a dealer, and what was your cost?
