Troy-Bilt 2460 (Should I add heated hand grips)

I picked up the 2460, I decided it was worth the extra money over the 2410 because I wanted the airless tires, the longer chute, single grip control and the headlight was a plus.
I see they have a heated hand grip kit for 45.00 and curious if itís worth it.

Anyone add them?

I'm in Maryland near the bay and it's not cold enough to need handwarmers, usually its around 28F/-2.2C. But in real cold places, the handwarmers are supposed to be great and are worth it.

If you have a large area to clear and you will be out there for awhile it's a nice feature to have.

You could also buy a case of chemical hand warmers and put them in your gloves. I know contractors often do this in the winter.

that kit is easy to install, great instructions . if you feel it will help you,go for it. i dealt with a old machine. without for 30 years yet after getting a new car with a heated steering wheel, i was all for a new machine with them . better to install now then having to install them later while possibly being in a on heated area with bare hands
latter if you don't need them, don't turn them on.

i am curious if you made these work? I bought the kit which has all 2 prong plugs. My 2460 has a 4 prong plug. I called tech support and they told me that this model does not support them?
I will look into retrofitting myself but curious if i got bad info from tech support?

If you have the red wire, you should be good to go. Check your voltage with the warmers turned on.

I have not tried yet, the blower is too new for me to mess with this year, so I was planning for a spring modification. Let me know how you make out.

I will have to take a look at what wires are there. I know it looked like 2 were used. Unsure of the color. But i have to assume i could steal some power from the headlights. Especially considering i will likely swap out for LED with a lower draw.
