Default Berco Snow Cab Installed on a Husqvarna

I finally received the snow cab I ordered 6 weeks ago, just in time as we were going to have a major snow storm.

I won't go into too many details as there was already a post on a similar installation, however there were some differences.

Since I had already had the snow blower attachment, the support bracket kit came with the front cab supports.



When I went to install the back supports, I found that my weight brackets were in the way, when I was trying to figure a way, I happen to notice on the weight brackets that there were two round sleeves on the inside of the supports.. I fitted the rods supports into the sleeves and they fitted, even the openings for the hex screws were there..Guess Berco had some thought when the made the weight brackets..


I went to position the cab on the supports..pefect fit


Installed the enclosure


Then placed the rod to the snowblower thru the opening in the cab..To open you just open up the velcro to slide rod thru, no need to cut open a hole.


These are the parts I didn'e need to use. Saved some time in the installation


Anyways, we had the major storm come thru yesterday so got a chance to see how this was going to hold up. We had very strong winds, blowing snow, etc.. I had a small ceramic heater to keep warm (plugged into the 12V adaptor on the tractor).

Quite happy on how it stood up in the wind..very easy to see out of, even though I felt like I was sitting in a bubble It was a lot better than last week with snow flying in my face.

Nice setup! I see you have the electric lift on your model. How do you like it?

I am curious, does the snow stick to the plastic winshield? It did on mine and I would have to get out periodically and wipe it off.

I havn't had any problems yet with snow sticking to the plastic. I was out 3 times so far. I recall in the instructions that the plastic was coated with something and it advised not to clean off with any cleaners only dry wipe. I'm sure it will eventually wear off.

The little that little that has stuck to mine falls off after a simple tap from me on the inside.

How does that ceramic heater work for you? Does the battery charging light come on when you are using that. I was thinking of getting one for myself. Just wondering, it seems like a heater like that would draw too much.

Thanks

With my old Yamaha/Kimpex blower I would get enogh heat from the engine to keep me modestly warm, but your engine is foward, mine was between my legs:

Nice rig! I see you have the Berco blade too. How long does it take to swap back and forth?

Heater doesn't draw that much power, when I plug it in, the lights don't even dim.
