Is it some sort of actual experimental cozy cab? It seems to have the same general shape of the hard cabs.

I'm not sure on the cab but it looks like a nice setup for 600$.

If you look in the garage, you can see a homebuilt airplane.  That "EXPERIMENTAL" on the cab is the same as what the FAA requires you to have on a homebuilt plane.

 

As far as  the cab, I'm thinking it may be home built as well.

I was thinking homemade too, the experimental threw me off.

He did a nice job on it and I see that he put on some home made blower skid pads that can be adjusted on the fly.

What is that big beam looking thing in the middle of the snowblower?  Did he install a hydraulic ram there or something to give it a power lift?

 

Looks like a nice setup.  What year is the "GT14" tractor?

It sure looks home made.  Looks pretty good.  That's a good price I would say.

Cool looking home made wood cab. My grandfather years ago didnt like the cost of a new snow cab. He then went home and built a wood cab. He also engineered a way to get heat pumped into the cab off of the exhaust. He would snow blow the drive in shorts and a t-shirt.
