    you run the blower setup on one of those? i doubt you'll find a cab…you'll have to come up with something custom.

    A 50", it is pretty slick. Has electric chute rotation, I am adding an actuator for raise-lower. This is from the Ferris site, an attachment under Three Wheel Pro Cut, but it illustrates the cab on a Z: PROCUT™ S
    Attachments
    SNOW BLOWER
    Two-stage 50” snow blower with electric chute rotation available.
    I cannot get the photo to paste, but you can see it on the Ferris site.

    Thanks, Antlerart06, but that is the F800X. The Ferris attachment chart lists the 60" snowblower/cab as optional for the F800X and the 50" snowblower/cab as optional on the Pro Cut S. That is it, the only two snowblower offerings. I always run across the F800X illustration with the cab, never the Pro Cut S version. Maybe the chart is sloppy and there is only a snowblower option for the Pro Cut S, maybe the cab is offered only for the F800X.

    That is probably what I will do. My one concern is heating the cab to prevent fogging. Or using a semi-porous material, any suggestions out there?

    In my 05 Polaris Ranger I had a 12v heater and it kept the windows from fogging up to a point

    I know one guy had a cab on a front deck mower He used a propane heater

    You could put a heat houser over the motor So heat from motor will keep the cab warm

    Thanks, Antlerart06, I will do a little research on these heating options.
