I'm interested in putting one of the roper rt16 with the snowblower...

What's wrong with ski goggles and a balaclava like real men? :D

Nothin. I'd rather be a warm dry sissy with the radio playing while I blow snow.

Not get out and look like the abominable snowman😝

Bluetooth headset and you be a shuckin' and Jovian'. Join the 21st century.
Had one on a snowblower when I was a kid, visibility was always a issue of snow started sticking to it or fogging up. Just a PIA

A cab can keep you alot more comfortable. I don't know about the Craftsman cabs but the all plastic ones seem to only last about 5 years. I picked up 3 Curtis brand cabs(2 for GTs and 1 for my Ford 2000). They have steel frames and roofs. The windshields are safety glass with electric wipers. The sides are clear plastic and fabric. They are tighter than the plastic but visibility is better to the front. They averaged $125 each. Shop around. The other choice is to make one from tubing, clear plastic and clear tape. Good Luck, Rick

To many viability restrictions with a cab.  I can still stay warm with clothes and the muffler helps to keep the gloves dry and fingers warm.  If you think a cab is going to keep you warm without a heater your kidding yourself.  May keep the wind off but proper clothes does that also.  I like Jazz's idea - much cheaper and better.
