CRAFTSMAN®/MD Universal Snowblower Cabin Review – Canada
I have installed a few of the Cabs and they do a very good job of keeping the snow from blowing back onto your face and upper body. When it’s really cold out this can make the difference of having fun blowing snow or being completely miserable.
If you HAVE to blow snow in blizzard conditions, this cab is a must-have!
They do flop around in heavy to moderate winds, but they are built well enough that they don’t fall apart or tear easily. You will get years of service out of one with just a little cleaning once in a while. In the spring and fall use a soft cloth and a mild soap like Dawn to wash the cab. Rinse it with a spray from your garden hose.
I like this one because it is not to long. The longer versions tend to flop around in the wind and get in the way. You will find that having your face a torso behind this shorter cab is just right.
Assembly: It works very well if you lay out all the parts before you try to assemble the cab. Read the directions and go over them enough so you are comfortable with all the parts and the assembly. If you follow the directions the cab goes together quickly.
When you attach the cab to the snowblower you may need a helper to hold it while you tighten the clamps.
Be sure to attach it on you snow blower low enough so you can get it through your door. Leave six inches or so of headroom and everything will work great!
Just like your snowblower, they work best if they are cold when you start blowing snow. If they are warm when you start snow will stick to it, melt and make it harder for you to see through it. If you have a heated building where you keep your snow blower take it outside and let it set for a few minutes to cool the cab down.
