Heated handle bars


Any one ever put a heated handlebar kit on your snowblower?
I'd like to consider it.

Why heat the snow-blower handlebars when you can get heated gloves that work off of 12v DC, as used to ride motorcycles?

Thanks. That's where I first went but there was an issue with the motorcycle gloves needing too many amps.

Most of them state that they WILL NOT WORK on snowblowers.

A snowblower does not have 12V........

It could if you put in a fullwave bridge rectifier with a 12 - 14VDC zener on the DC legs of the bridge.
