    I can plow at least 10 to 15 cm of wet heavy snow at the end of the driveway from the city plow.

    You're lucky... around here the city plow pushes up a bank two feet high on a heavy snow, and deeper from a big storm.

    I dont know man. If you go out and plow with that in a storm, a gust of wind is gonna blow that plastic wrap off the cab and may take the frame with it. Go to home depot and get a few sheets of plexi glass at least

    I agree with CF...that rig may not hold in a stiff wind. Plexiglass sheet (acrylic) or better yet Lexan sheet (polycarbonate) will be an improvement.
    Test it with a leaf blower...

    It already went through a HUGE storm and held up but right now I removed the cab to make a racing mower. Planning to drift it around on the lake this winter

    Personally I don't think this setup is going to work well because it has no windshield wiper and the windshield is plastic. As the heat from the engine warms up the cab, the snow will stick to the plastic and you will have to get out regularly to clean it off.

    I agree. I took it off before the winter because it shook to much when I drove. Thanks for your input though
