Ariens Hand Warmers and electrical equipment
Original Message   Feb 2, 2006 12:48 pm
Well, I just purchased a Ariens 926LE for $630. It was a toss-up between that and the 11hp model with handwarmers and remote differential. BUT, it was a $200+ difference, so I went with a little inconvenience.

My question is about the electrical system on these machines. The 11hp and 13hp power both a light and hand-warmers, whereas the 9hp doesn't have handwarmers. I know that the warmers are not an Ariens accessory option, but if the 9hp electrical system can handle it, I want to wire in a pair of electric gloves that I own.

Does anyone know what kind of power the warmers draw or if the system can handle adding this in?  My gloves are 12VDC and draw 22 watts.

Thanks for the great site!

Hand warmers?  Are you kidding me?   Just put a pair of gloves on, all set.   Talk about a nice and cheap option!!!!

I used some gauntleted goretex gloves today and they worked great.
