    Looks good. BTW, do you need to use one if your plowing your own drive?

    I have the same one. I love it. That is a low price on that one though, I would check around and see if it might be too low. I know mine was $150 with the mag mount. Just a thought.

    Strobe use

    I'm betting that will depend on the laws where you live. Regardless, I think it helps alert other cars and says something about your intentions as they approach.

    I used to live on one side of a steep hill and it was a white knuckler to enter the road from any direction. Dressing the approach was particularly harrowing and I almost got smacked quite a few times.

    I found a guy selling used strobes off city trucks at a car swap meet. Must've had 20 of them. I bought two for $10 !! Glued some magnets to the base (with felt) and wired in a cig plug. Been working for 10+ years.

    I checked and that strobe can be seen by cars before they even crest the hill. I never had a close call after I started using the strobe. YMMV.

    I strobe will definitely not hurt anything. I plowed once before I got one and will never plow without it again. When people see the light they even stop for me!
