SNOW CAB .......at last !

Recommended Posts

GLPointon
Well I had very good luck adapting this Wheel Horse Snow Cab to my 7010. I made 2 brackets from the running boards & 2 from the forward frame (used 1/2" conduit) the 2 in back mount under the seat. So I didn't drill any new holes...


This cab was a cheap C.L. find... I cleaned & Armor-All'd it and used an awsome product on the windows called PLAST-X (thanks mike-burntime) made them clear as new... I can't wait for a blizzard

Very nice! Nothing like a cab when blowing snow. I looked and looked for one like you found before I finally just built my own. Finding one in decent shape for a decent price is definately the way to go. Enjoy! Steve

Looks very good. Got to use mine last year, and loved the hey our of it. Might want to think of sealing to the hood, as on my 6200 a bit blows in. Just used a large magnet, from hardware store, which originally covered heat registers. Easy on and off is needed.

Greg, you could put a sleeper cab on yours! I picked one up this year, but still havent touched it. Just finished tilling and need to mow again...and for whatever reason the oaks are still holding their leaves. Still green! Everything else is long fallen and multched, but I am interested in trying a cab.

But Tim that is the best time to install the blower. It is evern better if you are knee deep in snow and the tractor is buried too. Don't ask how I know this. Rick...........

Spray a black rectangle to block out the WH and then use a stencil to spray Simplicity in orange over it. rustoleum has plastic paint that should work. If you want a real slick rotator see my post in the articles, on a geared rotator.
