Re: Snow Blower Options for 2011 X530
If the snowblower is fairly close to you why don't you take your x530 with and makes sure it fits? On mine 2011 x530 there is just one pin that holds the blower on and one arm on the side to lift it. If the price difference is not much between the 44" and 47" I would go with the 47" as it gives you a little more clearance when blowing snow for the tires, especially if you have a driveway that you need to turn when blowing.
As far as a cab goes I have an OTC cab for mine. I like it but i'm sure not as quiet as a hard side cab and a little flimsy but not bad. If you get one of these I would highly recommend the upgrade to the hard windshield.
