Help 200 Series (214) Snowblower and Cab Questions

So this CL thing is starting to get a little out of hand. I've got a line on a 37A snowthrower and cab for 200 series. Any ideas of relative value? Snowblower looks close to new, maybe 1-2 seasons. Cab is pretty tired; lots of surface rust and the back window and canvas are shot. Doors and windshield OK. Has wiper.

Also, any experience with blowing snow with a 214? Thinking about making mine the new snow machine if I can score a cab but I'm a little leary about dropping the 3 HP from 17 to 14 since the 180 is my current snow Deere.

The 37a snow thrower in perfect condition is worth around $250.00 and a crappy cab that needs a lot of work should go for around $100.00-$200.00.

These things are a dime-a-dozen around here. I'm not sure where you live and how available the 200 series and attachments are.

I have had 210.212,214 and a 216.used every one for snow duty and was quit impressed. A good 214 should suck-up a 180 and throw it across the street with a descent 37a snow thrower !! LOL LOL
Please keep us posted........Thanks-John

I don't know if it'll shoot a 180, but my 210 will shoot a newspaper 60-70 feet! I keep that one at my mom's for her long, wide gravel driveway. Now I have my own long wide gravel driveway so I'm looking for one for my 212. Your 214 should be more than capable of handling the job.

Thanks for the replies. I'm liking the idea of blowing snow with the 214 beacuse of the gear selection and the variator. Maybe a set of HDAPs to try and get away from the chains that mark up all the driveways I do. Can you still get parts for the old cabs? Will the snowthrower hook up to my hydraulics for hydraulic lift? That might be the coolest part.

I have a 185 and a 212. The 37a will out do the 185. And the weight advantage of the 212 really helps. I run with 120 lbs on the rear hitch. No wheel weights or fluid. I also run chains, but I have a gravel drive. When I pave the drive, I might try filling the tires and skipping the chains.

Can't help on the cab parts question.

STS25straight is right on for pricing.

Well at least I guessed about right. Trying to work a deal for a near-mint blower and tired cab for ~$400.
