I think its great, Cabs are so much better,

I have a JD 300 series cab I'm thinking about mounting on the bolens. Not too sure how I feel about the Green on white though,

Just a quick follow up. Tonight, the wind was blowing pretty good & every other pass, I was aiming into it. There were several times the world turned white as the wind blew all the snow back towards me. It was a wonderful feeling to not have all that snow in my hair, down my shirt, up my nose, etc. Really glad I did it.

Good to hear it worked out for you. It don't matter how you plan to blow versus the wind, it always seems like that airborne snow comes back to see you, and not in a pleasant way.

I'm glad it is working for you. Blowing snow has a way of finding the most minute spots to infiltrate.

Nope, I get to wear my padding... And I'll have my Carharts too :laughingteeth:

You know what had me the most stumped? How the _____ do I get gas in it after the cab is on?

I'll take a pic in daylight, but I came up with a solution that would make most any Rube Goldberg proud. :D

May I suggest go without the bean-o, You need to figure out how many cubic ft. of cab space, and eat a lot of beans. Remember anything higher than a few ounces :firejumper: will require another regulator. Also note that I have never saw anyone use this type of a compressed natural gas storage vessel! The Carrharts you have said about do have the funneling effect to bring the raw fuel up your nose! When you get your CNG tank (cab) sealed, let me know ill sell you a CNG carb! Good luck Alan! Thanks, Shawn:poke:

Shawn, thanks for the technical advice. :bigrofl:

I've opted to go with regular Gas on this vehicle as my using the method discussed above, the "source" would probably have to remain outside according to my wife.
