Can I install one of these in my 1988 John Deere 240 garden tractor?

I have a beacon that plugs into this type for power ..I would like to use this when snow throwing.
It has a magnetic base..
Where would I tap into the system for power?
Pics would help or a wire schematic for my machine ..

Sure just hook it direct to the battery if you don't have a schematic.Make sure you have a fuse in line if you go to the battery.If you have lights you could tap into the lighting system.

Yep, either tap into the light system if you want it switched or use an in line fuse and go direct to the battery for constant 12v.
