Sears Snow blower cab

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used a Sears snow blower cab on their tractor? It looks like it would give pretty good protection on the front and part of the sides; it has no back. It the cloth itself didn't look really heavy, but the frame seemed to be pretty solid. I know it's not near as good as a Simplicity; but I'm sure it's much less money.

I've seen some "off-brand" cabs that look good... and some that look like a "shower curtain" Its all personal taste...But any that keep the cold wind/snow out of your face is good...sm01

My dad has one on his GT5000. I personally do not like the way you have to get on and off the tractor with the cab installed. I would much rather open a door. As far as mounting goes, there is a bracket that mounts under the seat that can stay on the machine. The hoop simply bolts onto the bracket. There are support rods that fit into a pocket in front of the steering wheel. The canvas is now about five or six years old and in surprisingly good condition, no fading or tears. My dad stores the tractor in his garage for the winter season. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_07124276000P?prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=G3 The cab you mention is $500.00 cheaper than the Simplicity cab new. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/search_10153_12605?keyword=snow+cab&vName=Lawn+%26+Garden Here's a list of them all.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
