Finished the leaf cleanup today with the 314 & 42" Huskee sweeper, changed the oil, removed the "replica" Gard-N-Cart, drawbar extension & sunshade bracket. Then put on the lockout link & rear weight bracket to get ready to put on the cab & snowblower. ~~ Lowell

... That sucks you cab wont fit on the Hdt1000 ...

Oh, it will fit. I'd just have to drill two holes on each side of the dash tower, 1 on each foot rest, and 2 on the rear of the fender pan.

I'd also have to swap the tires from the 20D to it though, as one front on the HDT won't hold air, and the rears are in really sad shape.

Once I get good tires on the HDT, and if we get some mild weather later this winter, I may consider it.

I was really worried about using the 20D for snow removal, as they have a reputation for not starting in cold weather. However, mine seems to be the exception. A PO put on a cold start setup that seems to be working quite well. It was 38* the other day and it started with no problem.

It would have really been nice if I could have gotten the HDT and the cab a month or more ago. I could have put new tires, a front blade, and the cab on the HDT, and the Sweepster Rotary broom on the 20D. With the snowcaster on the G11, and the FEL on the 1886, I would be ready for anything from the light fluffy stuff, to monster drifts :D :D :D.

I had to wait till I got the blade on to get in on this with the latest crew. I think I'm about ready for almost anything.
