Well now I'm ready! I got this cab from my boss. Its accually for a Sears Suburban. But a few nights working in the cold and I got it to fit my Landloard. Its not in too bad of shape. Few widows are cracked, but what do you expect for being 30+ years old. Oh the best thing is I got it for free!!!!

Good deal Elon!! Perhaps a strip of duct tape over the sears logo.:D You should be almost as snug as a bug in there man. ;)How did you get the pics to work like that? I was ready to wander off when I discovered they were a link.

Elon, That looks like it was made by the Original Cab Company -- same one that made the Simplicity.... Do you have chains? If not, you're gonna need a lot of weight in that box... and still will do a lot of spinning....

Kent, Yeah the cahins are on. Just caint see them with the cab on. I put 6 gallons "each wheel" of washer fluid in the tires. Im the box I got some broken cinder blockes. Im going to put my gas can in it as well. I hate to be at the bottom og my 750 foot driveway and run out of gas!lol I have the orignal owners manual fgor the cab. It dosn't say who made it other than Sears. Elon

Sounds like you're ready then... Now the fun part of trying to figure out where to put all the snow! BTW, the pictures mysteriously show up because someone (usually Maynard) fixes them... he's the "magiician behind the curtain..." :D

Nice cab Elon! Enjoy! We just got hit with 5" of 'lake effect' this afternoon in NE Oh and the trusty 21" Cub Cadet, all steel, 9" open auger (not drum), same as (Simplicity/Toro2450) 4.5-5 Hp 2-stroke, torque monster Tehcumseh, did the job. Think all three brands made by Toro?? I use my 4XL Lands End 'snow cab' coat to cover up the pusher motor (me). Yep, we were throwing snow 20+ feet. Driveway not frozen yet, and is too crowned and damaged to use a wider blade or s-blower. So get ready Elon, it's heading East!! PS check out a winterizing kit for carb and gas cap. You can make one up.

Ok I figured how to get the pic's up. I just feel bad for Maynard having to fix my screw ups all this time. I wish he would have told me that I was doing it wrong. I would have spent the time to figure it out a long time ago. But thank you Maynard.
