    anyone have a good idea where to mount a small becon on my snowex 575 spreader.

    If you have a pic that would be great, and also how would you wire this, direct, switch, etc???

    On my 3 internationals I have a double flash beacon mounted to the top of the motor box. Its wired into the worklights I have back there so when they are on the beacons come on too. On the snowex you could screw a beacon to the top of the plastic cap, wire the light using a trailer connector so that when you need to take the top off, you can easily unhook the wiring, and take the cap off while the beacon remains on top. If your looking for a good cheaper beacon let me know ill show you the ones I buy. You would want to hardwire it to a switch in the cab so you can control when the light is flashing.

    You could weld a plate to the front of the spreader to mount it to
