I bet that your auxiliary LED project would be MUCH brighter than the stock LED. Just a guess though

But, it might eliminate your need for the rectifier.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I agree. I just received and tested the 18 watt led and its superbright. It puzzles me that snowblower manufacturers continue to place lights that are obviously inadequate especially with todays technology. It seems like every manufacturer places the light in the same place. In my opinion it should be placed somewhere in front of the chute. Being a first time 2 stage snowblower owner, is this not feasable?

I was thinking of fabricating a bracket to come up a few inches above the impeller housing and just in front of the chute.

Personally I would mimic what Honda does, in all my hours of brainstorming headlight location it seems that Honda has one of the smarter locations that avoids the most shadows (ideally at least two separate lights are used for zero shadows) . If you mount a light in front of the shoot you do run the rare risk of burying it in snow if you push the bucket into a large snow drift.

Curious if you'll modify it to reduce eye glare when tipping up the bucket on turns etc. Seems to be a common complaint with the new dash config.
