What, what, what???

They made a cab... or was it just a universal one?  I certainly don't want one bad enough to build one or pay the money just to put one of the plain box ones on... and I'd still have a ton of adaptation work to get one on there.

 

They're listed in several of the sales brochures but I had never seen one until the CL ( or Ebay, don't remember) ad someone linked to here.  I guess I should have saved the pictures because I don't remember exact details but it was a soft cab and made specifically for Pennsylvania.  I'm pretty sure the metal parts were Panzer blue.  Again, the details aren't fresh, but I'm pretty sure it was for a T-75.

I never saved much of the sales literature for the older tractors but I could only find cabs listed as available for T-75 and the square bodied Meteors and 1107/1110.  One of the brochures lists a "winter canopy" part #915-W.  I'm not really sure if that's a cab but its on the T-75 accessory list.  The '68 price list (Meteor and 1107/1110) that's out there on the net shows a winter cab model 3030 as an "endorsed attachment" available from the Original Tractor Cab Company.

Very interesting.  I'll have to keep an eye out.  The panzer cabs must have either sold very little or been made entirely out of mouse food, because I'm yet to see one of them.

Snapped this quick on my way in tonite, after sweeping.  It was -4 out there, and I didn't bother with glamour shots.  Left to right:

 

'03 Legacy with loader & 60" blade

'73 Homelite T-16S with 42" blower

'69 Allis B-208 Super with 32" blower

'69 Allis HB-112 with C48 Sweepster

'68 Allis B-110 with 46" dozer

I'm thinking you're gonna need several more kids to man that snow fleet.

 I don't know how many kids you and your wife have now, but from what I can see there, you'll need 9 or 10 kids to run all your tractors in the picture. WOW!!!

How did the blower work? How big is it? Is it a two stage? Looks like it gets the job done fast.

Blower works good for a single stage, throws ok if you have enough snow going through it. I believe it is a 38".

It sure is a lot faster than the old 18" walk-behind Montgomery Wards blower (that didn't have any traction) I have used for the last 6 years!

Really nice looking line up you got. Can never have to many. I like the allis loader tractor in the corner!

Just did this today an surprising it plowed great with no chains or weight(except me)

 

The plow is one i picked up for my cub 70 but since the cub is down an i dont have $200 for jd snow blower mounts this worked fine today. An the most important thing is more seat time!!!!

Pushed most of the 15" we got with the little Sears, it did a great job. I just used the 782 to knock back the edges and along the curb where the city plowed up piles. Here's a pic of it in front of one of the piles it pushed up...
