When I bought my snow blower, I only wanted one wide enough to fit through the side door on my garage, so I settled for a 26” wide unit. When looking across various models, I noticed that several premium (and larger) models had heated hand grips. After two winters with my snow blower, I thought it would be time to try to upgrade my basic rubber hand grips to heated one. I made a couple of videos on it, the first one shown how I did it for my MTD manufactured Troy-Bilt, and a second one showing how well they work. Much to my surprise the heating element in them got the temp up to 80°F from a starting temp of 50°F. When it gets colder and it snows I may try to remeasure the heated generated. But that will have to come later.

How to install:
