adding non-LED light

hey guys, i'm interested in bolting an additional light onto my Troy Bilt XT3090. i read the thread about adding LEDs but i've already got a few extra utility lights that were previously mounted on a roofbar on a previous car and would like to just use one of those as opposed to buying new LED. will this be pretty much plug and play as far as connecting the wiring to the existing harness?

It would be plug and play however you have to find out how much your stator is capable to output those added watts. If it doesn't show in the manual you might have to contact Troybilt to find out. Good Luck

Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.

according to Troy Bilt:

YELLOW WIRE 13-18 VAC, RED WIRE 17-26 VDC

This is a given but you still have to try to find how many watts or amperes the stator outputs.

You could start by looking up accessories for your specific model, see if there is an optional hand warmer, then check to see the wattage of the hand warmer. As long as the utility light is within the same voltage and wattage range you'll be fine.

Then unfortunately your stator is probably maxed out with running the factory headlight and the warmers. Call Troy Built to verify. Typically these snowblower manufacturers don't put a stator on their motors that has more juice than what the designed accessories will draw.
LED's are an awesome upgrade...
