    If you have a self propelled you'll have a small battery if there's a headlight on it. Get an old Gen 1 LED and follow the wires for the head light. Easier if you get a reflective vest or coat.

    I'm doing a Gen 1 on my lawn tractor w/plow since I have to go in the roadways...
     
  5. Mount self contained led grill lights all they need is power then the flash

    If you want its very easy, I have put flood lights on them before, They have a stator on them under the flywheel if it already has a light on it. If it does not have it there is no 12v system on it, Even the self proppelled ones do not have on board batteries. They only generate 12v at full rpm and only about 2-3 amps. A simple fuse and switch will do you just fine.
