So I thought the HT20 was looking lonely so I'm about to go pick up another. a G14 with hydro lift, a snow cab, snow blower, deck, weights, chains, ect., I'm so excited. I will have pics when i get back, sorry for typos I'm hyped up.

well its a gem. dent free. seemless. until it fell off the truck and the hood got dented in the front. the blower is nice the deck isnt bad. but the cab is amazing. just need to get 2 pieces of black vinyl sewn in and it'll be like new.

when it got dented i kicked the trucks bumper as hard as i could. i think i cracked the bondo. the cabs now in the basement. my neighbor who works on car bodies for a living says wash the cab with comet. is that a good way? also the owner towed it to my truck without taking the free wheel pin out. and i cant get the pin out for the life of me. think he killed it?

Sometimes those freewheeling pins can be a real PITA to break free. Thats why so many of them have that tab broken off.
You can try heating it up or spraying some PB blaster on it.

yeah the tab is snapped. but good news is i tested the snowblower on the ht20 and it seems to work pretty good. i just hooked it up to the pto using the large frame pto joint. what is nice is having the original manuals

... think he killed it?


Probably not. I had to jack up the right rear, take off the wheel, and use a hammer and a piece of rod the get the one in my 800 out (for the first time in 30+ years).

I'd hit it with some PBBlaster and let it 'soak' a bit first, just to help.

I'm sure glad you took good pics of the cab. Do you have one of the rear as well? I have a BUNCH of soft cab parts, and PART of an installation manual, but it doesn't show which pieces I need. It appears that I have soft cab pieces for more than one model/line of tractors. In fact 2 of them appear to be either EK of GK parts. I have ONE door that's printed with the Wheel Horse, and all of the others are Bolens in at least 3 different colors, and with different lettering. Some just say BOLENS, other have the Husky on them, etc.

i can take pics. i alreayd have the wheel off and i whaled on it for a bit with crapswoman screwdrivers. looks like i need to do returning at sears again. re bar or even a deep socket impact socket might work well. im surprised on how big the cab is. now i wonder if it would hit on my ht20 ^.^
