I don't usually blow snow at night but the lights are "cool" 😎   I only use my strobes when I'm in or near the road. 

Looks great Glenn but where's the snow😁

Looks great Glenn. Where's the snow?

You know where it is, by you.

 

Now that I am all set there will be no snow.  Squonk says so.

May want to consider a much smaller lamp on the sides to light up the area next to the tractor . I've learned that having very bright forward/back lighting against new snow makes it tough to see along side the tractor and avoiding objects . Look into the small round 1 watt led round lamps - they are cheap and effective , I use 3 in the rear of the old Land Cruiser FJ40 for dome lamps .

These are brighter than you'd think - https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/led-light-modules/small-wired-led-accent-light/1141/#/tab/Reviews

Nice Glenn, you mentioned they are offered in flood or spot?? Yes floods was the right choice.

Picked up a amber beacon for the ventures into the road. Magnetic mount and a piece of tin on the underside seems to hold it. Seems to be a nice little unit for 15 bucks at TSC. Plugs into a cig lighter which I thought I had.....now where did I put it....:confusion-scratchheadblue:

 

Getting hammered here today, 4-5 on the ground already and still coming down. @pfrederi jinxed us tho ...it's day light! Maybe get some clean up action after the Packer game tho!

Hey Glenn,  I finally got to try out my new LED light bar.  Is this bright enough?

Yep, it was only about 1" on the drive.  But very wet and heavy.  I was worried it would freeze over night.  I think you will like the light bar, I know I do.  Get busy on the tall chute.
