    Yes, there is a magnet inside the lid. I had it on the outside of the lid and the damned thing would not come off the mower! It is rated for 45lbs of holding strength...like the size of a .50 piece. With the magnet on the inside of the plastic it holds just right.

    I think a single amber beacon may be more effective. You could get and led version for low current draw, even pipe mount it. I think white strobes are mainly intended for school buses.
