Add light to snowblower without alternator

Can always add a proper flywheel and stator (which can be expensive) but the easiest way is to use a rechargeable battery.

These adapters will allow the use of a rechargeable lithium battery. Probably will supply enough power to clear the longest drive. (If not, can always pop out the discharged cell and pop in a new one).
