Kubota M5040 alternator?

    We have a Kubota M5040 with a blizzard speedwing plow on it. When i drive it short distances the battery goes dead from all the power being taken between the plow, lights, cd player etc, but when i drive it longer distance everything works good. My question is do you guys usually put bigger alternators in when you have plows on these tractors or do you just think it needs a new battery?
