Adding lights to Sears 10/32 snowblower

Would like to add led lights to my Sears 10/32 it had a 18 watt bulb that I can't get anymore so I got 2 18 watt led lights but will the motor generate enough amps to cover both new lights?

Probably not enough charge to run the 2, but I would try them and see how bright they are, then disconnect one of them and see how much different it is, make your decision after that.

LED's may not work without a rectifier. Your bulb likely ran on AC. LED's require DC.

All you need is one of these inexpensive units




I used them on two of my Yamahas with 18W led lights and worked well.

I actually bought a nice battery 🔋 operated Craftsman light designed for snow blowers which works well for my Honda tracked machine.

I would check how many colts the lighting coil produces at idle and full throttle. I wanted to add LEDs to my mtd but found the Tecumseh made only 7 volts at 3600rpm. None of the LED lamps I found were rated for less then 10volts. I ended up scratching the idea, Though the typical 18watt amazon/eBay led work light would have likely worked fine just not for its rated lifetime.
