Craftsman rechargeable LED

Bought a Craftsman 1000 Lumin LED at LOWE's for $19.00. 1,000 Lumins. Works great on my small blower. Works so well in fact that I decided to go back and pick up one for the auto. Come to find out the 1,000 Lumin model has been discontinued. They sell a 500 Lumin model now for $25.00. Identical in size and shape just not as powerful. Doubt that 500 Lumins would be bright enough to work at night. If you're interested in adding a rechargeable LED to your blower Your best option is probably the 1,000 - 2,500 Lumin Hyper Tough LED. Sold @ Walmart. for $15.00 for the 1,000 - $38.00 for 2,500. if you need more. Wish I would have known about this sooner. I would have bought the 2,500 model. I still might but I'll use it around the house. The Craftsman works well for me on the blower but the Hyper Tough is a better value.

I have since supplimented the lighting on my blower with a Nebo 400 Lumin. I bought it for the red flashing mode. Repurposed the shovel mount on the top of the bucket and mounted it on the side using the holes provided for the drift cutter. I use the red strobe feature as a caution light when I'm out after sundown along with the LED. but that's another story. The strobe mode really gets their attention. Good safety feature.

Snow blowing in 25 degree weather while it was raining with plenty of wet stuff. I was out there for more than 3 hours. Craftsman was dripping wet but the lens remained clear and bright. Controls are rubberized / water tight. No condensation. No even when I brought the blower into heated garage. Manual states that light is not water proof but I'm not spraying it down with a water hose. Works for me.

Great information but why do your OPs remind me of Groundhog Day?

People keep asking me to post pics so I am trying different approaches to see if any of them will work. This is my last attempt. I can see them on my IPad but others are telling me that they're not getting through. If you can access them do me a favor. Copy them and repost will you I would appreciate it. I have been asked about the LED's and the auger support in particular. Thanks.
