Welcome Artie769! Yup, I showed up! The XTX's are limited at 27 amps total on the stator, reworking a stator may get you 2-3 additional amps but requires rewinding. Running the power steering draws quite a bit. I installed a second battery on mine, but snow plow use really taxes the system. I thought about the best way to address this, and stay cost effective. I installed a 70 amp Denso mini alternator on mine driven off the front driveshaft. Drawback is that it does not charge until moving, but at speeds above 10 mph it really pays for itself! Before the alternator, any time the cooling fan cycled my voltage would drop to 12 volts, after the alternator, voltage stays at 14+, I think I have pictures in my album. Presently putting kits together minus the alternator, still working on machining the pulleys! PM me if you would like more info
