I am new to this forum.....I want to share my experience with owners of older model Troy Bilts.......I own a 1995 circa Troy Bilt 42010. Great machine and by far the best purchase I ever made. It still runs great and is a very solid machine. I recently got the bug to get my hand warmers working again (the last time I remember them working was like 10 yrs ago). So I searched with no luck. Not even any used ones to be had. Now I'm looking at industrial electronic web sites for something that may work. I find a company up north that sells something called an Enclosurer Heater. It sounds like it may work as it runs on 12 VAC/VDC up to 120 Volts as well. I've spent stupid money before so I decided to give it a try as they were only $11.00 each. I removed the old ceramic blocks in the handles and installed the new heaters....and all I can say is AMAZING !! With the engine at operating RPM's, the heaters heat to 210-220 degrees. The way I mounted them in the grips, it sits elevated in the bars and radiates heat at the exact spot the old ceramics were mounted. I can pass the info to anyone who wants to be ambitious and try this themselves (with no liability on my part). Here's a couple of pix........
