    I don't think so... Stronger lights generally reflect snow falling right back at you. You want your light to diffuse and flood, not spot on like some of the newer ones.

    Sorry Charlie LOL (I get a kick out of that, who remembers the starkissed commercials?)
    The rumor is we have new lights next year. Though I agree with Charlie that the defused light is best for plowing in the falling snow. I often run with just my parking lights and roof flasher when plowing to avoid the refracted light playing games with visibility.

    I have also heard a new style of light for next year. I have been pretty happy with the lights we have now. Seem very bright. Other than the actual shape I think they work great.

    will the new lights work with a plow with the old ones?
