It has been 4 or 5 years since I got to plow some snow (with my tractor) until this morning. Made my first round at both neighbor's and about 500 yds of county rd. What a blast, it's been too long. Still snowing and could get around 10" before it move's east and north. Came in to fill up on breakfast and top off the 149 CC

Glad to see you are keeping the Cub warm! I got to push a little snow last year.

We can tell that blade is awfully perdy. Nice looking rig for sure. Nothing like being real hungry for a good breakfast.  :thumbs:

You could come to Prince Edward Island , Canada and plow all you want. Just had a blizzard for the last two days. 3 to 4 feet of snow in places. I need the help, so the sooner you get here that would be great. Thanks, Noel

That is a very nice setup. Do you have a heater? I just spent 3 hours plowing in 10* weather with wind. I have a cab but didn't put it on when the weather was warm. Now, I can't get to it nor, put it on. I'm paying for not being prepared. My face and feet were very cold and hurting when I came in. Enjoy that you are prepared. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks Rick...no heater in the cab but I was comfortable. I remove the canvas in the spring, sheet metal stays on... kind of like to keep the sun off my neck in the summer.

Nice setup.

Glad you got to use it.

I really like that mirror. What is that off of?

Will; I made it. It took me several designs until I was happy. Vibration was my main issue...banging my head into it was another. I'm still not crazy about the looks but it functions or view is worth it being in the cab buttoned up there is some blind spots. I used two convex mirrors, the small one is angled down. Mirror post is removable and the mount remains on the cab...big plus when parked/stored to keep from the "head banging". And I have a small spot mirror mounted inside the cab just to keep a quick eye on rear implements, thanx for askin!
