Question on Storm 2410

Hello, I just joined this site and I will be purchasing my first snowblower, a Troy Bilt Storm 2410. It does not come with a light. Can someone tell me if the engine is capable of having a light installed? I see there is a whole section here talking about installing lights on snowblowers, but there are 125 pages of on this one topic. I did try to do a search on the 2410, but I didn't see too much info on regarding lights on this snowblower.

Or, would it just be easier to not try and use the engine (if it is possible) and just use some battery LEDs somehow attached to the unit?

Thanks for any information.

My 2008 2410 Didn't come with a headlight but down by the starter there are red and yellow wires labeled headlight and hand warmers.
You need to look to see if yours is equipped to run a headlight as the magneto might be there even if it doesn't have a headlight.
The photo is from my machine.
At the time I added a 35 watt incandescent light and connected the yellow and red together to run it.
This year I did pickup a converter box and plan to put on a 18watt LED flood.
This is one source for those boxes or you can build you own. https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...ule/1725/4134/

If you ever need to replace the stock skids consider Ariens brand stock skids. Anything it better than those cheap one sided stock Troy/MTD ones they come with. <--- IMHO

I don't believe the 2410 engine comes with the power/light generator. . . probably depends on the model year.You would have to take a look at the parts list or owner's manual to tell for sure. Sometimes you can tell by looking closely at the engine to see if there is a loose connector hanging down from around the flywheel cover, appropriately labeled as mentioned.


If you can find a parts list for the TB line, see what the engine's part number is for the lighted and non lighted models. If it is a different part number, then it answers the question.


As stated, another way may be some LED lights with a decent sized 12 volt battery.


FWIW - I upgraded the engine on my TB 2410 to a Briggs 305cc that had a 60 watt generator and was able to add lights.

Welcome to the forum! Good advice so far.

If you don't feel like delving into that stuff, or if the engine doesn't have an unused electrical-source wire hanging off it, the simpler approach is just to use a battery-powered LED light. Such as a Harbor Freight light that you could attach to the machine, maybe something like this:

https://www.harborfreight.com/rotati...ght-63422.html
Or a nice LED headlamp, which has the benefit of also aiming where you're looking. I have this one, it's been great, and I use it for a bunch of different things:

Toro Power Clear 221QR
Toro Power Curve 1800

I don't own the Harbor Freight light. But at the price, you could probably roll the dice, and hope you don't have trouble.

I've used the headlamp while snowblowing without trouble, and it claims to be waterproof. I don't typically use it for snow duty, as my current blower has a headlight. So I usually don't need extra light.

Ah wait you use the headlamp.......I was wondering about magnetic LED from Harbor freight.....does not look weather sealed.


I had bought two copy type Larry COBS mounted them too my drift breakers they worked awesome but they were not weather proof and burnt out after 10 minutes.
If they were weather proof they would have been like headlights.....



Could anything like this be converted:

You would need a good sized lawn and garden battery to run it. That thing is rated at 60 watts.

Getting a good 18 watt flood is usually more than enough for the average application. That and they are four times cheaper. This is the style I've used with good success.



You can find them on ebay, amazon, ... https://www.ebay.com/p/18w-12v-LED-W...9251886&chn=ps
