    25 degrees and 20-25MPH lite breezes blowing that lovely blown snow straight into my face.

    MFRed, thanks for the suggestion, wow! That cab is higher priced than the blower. BTW, I found them early on in my quest, and because of their prices decided they were too high for our level of snow work here.

    I don't like the confines of a cab when it isn't snow season, and have found this snowmobile helmet to be the best of both worlds for me.

    Prior to purchasing my 2310 I had used a Sears garden tractor for snowthrowing. Putting a Sears three sided cab made a huge differance in the throwing experiance. I was able to throw with a light jacket rather than the rainsuit and all the other gear. Maybe a light tubing framework and soft cover sewn locally would be a cheaper solution that is easily removable come spriing.

    After many hours of research, I have made my drawing for the cab. I will frame it with 1X2" oak, with the corner posts and stress points 2X2 oak. Lexan windows and 1/4" B/C plywood skin. Overall size will be in the 40"W X 65"L 52"H range.

    Why the oak? I have lots of it. Why wood? I have lots of it and all the needed tools. Estimated total at this point is <$300. BTW, the Lexan is the most expensive item (~$200) as I want many windows. So if I want to lower price, fewer windows will be needed.

    Share the drawings, we are all interested in seeing them. Or start a seperate build thread and show your progress.

    Lot's of people have used wood, metal, and even PVC pipe:
