snow cab + no snow = dead battery

Recommended Posts

put the snow cab on a little while back and tractor has sat ever since. went to do a quick plow yesterday . had to jump it. and ofcourse now the battery is weak and wont hold a charge. looks like it's gonna be a little tight getting the battery out with the cab brackets in the way.

Yup It's a real pita to change a battery with a cab installed, because of the electric spout rotator, I try to have a good battery installed in the blower tractor before dressing it out for winter duty. No snow here either, no complaints from me. 8 weeks of cold to go!

I run all my workers up to full temp at least once a week, PITA sometimes but... My standby generator says to ensure maximium reliability start and run 15 minuites every week. At least I find problems before the snow fly's or power goes out and can work on them at my conveniance. My B-210 has a custom hinged panel in the hood allowing access to battery and engine. With the cab on. I like it. :)

When I built my cab, i made the back so it will swing up on hinges. Then the seat can be raised and tilted and the battery is accessible. Of course, if your battery isn't under the seat this doesn't help. Just saying this to acknowledge that not being able to access a battery in the winter time is a real bummer. Glad you managed to get yours out. Steve

        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
