I would be really careful about bringing engine air into the cab, you might get more than you bargained for (Carbon Monoxide)!

Just a thought. ~~ Lowell

Might have to rethink this, Looks like those that do have cabs like them. I just never thought it worthwhile I only snow blow for about an hour or a little more at a time. Maybe I'll try it this year and see
These were two yrs ago last yr no snow We'll see what this yr brings

I vote for a cab. It does not matter how flexible, fast, or acrobatic you are, you cant dodge the snow when that big gust of wind from the wrong direction blows your freshly blown snow back in your face, ears, and every other opening. Had a cab for two seasons now and that is the ONLY way to use a snowblower

I suggest covering all of those anatomical areas and openings before losing track of the wind. Remember, part of the enjoyment of being out there is the fun of outthinking Ma Nature and her whims. :D

Before I got my Husqvarna I had a handle bar cab on my walk behind snowblowers for years. Never had to think twice about getting something whe I bought the lawn tractor. Yeh, I'm a wuss....... but a dry one. lol ! Hey HH, Do you still have the pics or instructions for that wheel chains installer / gizmo that you made.,,, the one out of wood , Ithink? It's getting tougher each year for me to put them on. Any chance that you could show 'em here ?

Yesss, another potential customer for the "Shoddy Enterprises E-Z Skid Chain Installer"! I'll find 'em and post 'em. (Remember "Postum", a real "old timer" should!)
