Got your 8 inches plus. Been at it most of the day so far, still snowing at 4 pm. Had to use the roof rake, trying to prevent the dreaded Ice dams from forming, wish I could call it fun. Have more snow now than all last year. Nice snow cab you have, its the only way to blow snow.^

I sure do like the cabs on the tractors.Going north is always hard as the wind blows back at me and can not see where I am going. Had 8 inches here and the old allis 720 did good.I like having a grader blade on the back use both blower and blade same time. Cab is home made but sure works well. I have the fiber glass cab on the 4041 but that only has the dozer on it.

Making that cab was the best thing I did for my snow handling setup. I do need to do something about the snow sticking to the vinyl windshield when it blows right back at me, I have to stop and get out and wipe it off once in a while. Thinking of trying a wiper setup, even tho I have the soft vinyl. I think it would work ok, anyone have any experience with this?

Graham,

There should be a thread on the cab build, I made in a couple of years ago. The frame is 3/4 X 3/4 X 1/16 steel angle iron. I cut and welded the frame, then covered it with the vinyl. The front with the windshield, the left side door, and the back panel are all hinged and can be removed. The top is a pc. of outdoor plywood, 1/4 inch thick. the cab is mounted on four angle iron mounting pads that are bolted to the tractor, one in front of each running board, and two that protrude out the back. I set the cab on the tractor and fasten it with four 1/4 inch wingnuts at the mounting points, then attach the door and front and back panels, and lastly I have the wiring for the tractor headlights modified so I can unplug the headlights and plug in the lights on top of the cab. They then work with the headlight switch. Goes on and off in about 10 minutes, and easy to lift alone.

My dad had a Case 446 with a Case snow cab. It was well built, had a metal frame with vinyl doors and plexi for glass. The front "glass" had a wiper that was a manual operation type. Was handy when, like you say, the snow blew back at the cab. Miss that old tractor... My A-hole older brother sold the unit this past summer.... He knew I wanted it. Anyway.....
