Well I finally had a chance to work on the cab for my snow blower tractor.  The tractor is a 1978 1614 with tandem transmissions,  loaded 9:50X16 tires . wheel weights and chains. I get my tractor chains at auctions. they are chains for  20 inch truck tires.  I put cross chains every other link and shorten the side chains  to fit the tires.  I'll start with the snowblower.  I bought it new at an auction for $80 the used CC yellow ones were going for $150. Same blower made by MTD.

Very nice setup. That Cast Iron Kohler on the back will help with traction.
