      Great Idea That Needs A Little Design Tweaking

      After reading other reviews, I decided to go with this cab knowing full well that I would have to do some modifications to it to meet my expectations.  So I haven't run into anything that wasn't expected.  The frame and cover both seem reasonably well made for the money and everything went together as described in the owner's manual.  It was a pretty easy assembly. I wanted to get it in and put together while it was still warm so I could  decide on and make the modifications that I was pretty sure that I was going to want.  I think that was a good decision. 

      As expected after reading other reviews, it is virtually impossible to use the manual PTO clutch on my YTS 3000 with the front support in place as designed.  That wasn't a huge deal to alter but this cab and the manual clutch tractors have both been out long enough for some genius to figure out that there is a design problem and FIX IT ! ! !   But they haven't.  It shouldn't take much more than a few different bends in the front support and a little extension in their length if they wanted to be cheap about it.  And they could get another star or two from me and others like me.  Personally, I came up with something a little more substantial than that.  But I'm not being aggravated with having to move the support every time I need to engage or disengage the manual PTO.

      Secondly, while a 3 sided cab is better than no cab and does help substantially, I wanted to add a back side to the cab so as to keep the wind and blowing rain and snow off of MY back side.  Some tent canvas, ssome heavy clear vinyl, a little sewing, and some velcro to make it look like it came from the factory made that happen easy enough. My back is removable and I find that I only use it during the coldest and windiest of conditions. 

      I also used some tent canvas and velcro to make an easy on and off cover for the snowblower control port on the left side so I can keep the wind and precip from coming in it when I'm using other attachments and that port isn't being used.  A little velcro added to the hand port flaps on both sides keeps them from flying up and letting cold wind and precip in during high winds, too.  Yet they're available as needed.

      I haven't gotten around to it yet but I still plan to rig some canvas ductwork to funnel engine block heat from the engine's side hood heat exhausts to inside the cab at the openings at the front of the footrests.  Engine heat already seems to come in them to some extent without the planned ductwork.  But I want to keep rain, snow, and wind out of those holes as well as funnel wasted engine heat in.   I've seen this done with other cab designs so I see no reason it can't work with this one.  I think this simple modification should contribute to drier feet and a warmer me.  And that's a good thing.  Especially when using a snowblower.

      Overall, I think this cab is a good investment for the money.  Just don't expect perfection for this price.  I didn't.  But so far I'm still happy.  It was one of the first cold and rainy days of the fall season when I finished putting it together.  So I just had to ride around the property and check it out.  I was pleased.  I  stayed warm and dry.  Since then, I've used it on the lawnmower while working the property during the fall to keep rain and wind off of me.  And I've used it for around 20 hours (so far) with both the Craftsman 42" Snow Blade and the 42" Snowthrower Attachment.  I've been out clearing snow in temperatures as low as 9 degrees with winds blowing at 20 mph or more.  I couldn't (or wouldn't) have done that without the cab.  I don't consider this cab to be an option when clearing snow.  I consider it to be a requirement.  That's expecially true when using a snowblower.  I'm glad Craftsman made this cab available.

      Winkle Solution

      To remove winkles from the plastic window: place it in your clothes dryer on low heat for a couple of minutes.  Stand by;  you will need to remove it quickly after a minute or two.  Immediately lay it flat to cool.  Winkles will be all gone!

      Gets the job done but could be improved.

      The cab does keep the wind and blowing snow off of you but it is a bit difficult to see through the clear material and in the bitter cold did crack when getting on and off the tractor. I was able to use silicone to mend it easily. I think it would be better if the front windshield was a rigid material and the sides flexible with build in seams for bending while entering and exiting. Overall, it works but could be improved. For disclosure, I am a Sears associate.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Keeps my head dry

      Bought a new Sears tractor/snow blower in December and it works great. Didn't thkni I needed the cab but given this year's horrific winter in northern NY, I went back at got the cab. It's great but the packing wrinkles won't flatten out and visibility can be a problem. I am NOT going to put it in my dryer either as someone suggested.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great with Lexan windshield I made

      The snow cab as it comes has poor visibility with the vinyl windows. For $100 I made a lexan windshield with an aluminum frame that has really improved the snow cab. I put a manual windshield wiper on it and it is a great improvement. The cab frame seems well designed. I have written up plans with pictures for the windshield, but not sure were to post them. I rated it as 3 stars as it comes, but the new windshield makes it so much better.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Must have with snow blower

      Easy to install. I added a 3 foot wide black vinyl material to make an enclosure for the back. Better protection from the elements but I still have fresh air ventilation.

      Snow thrower is great for theses unpredictable winters

      Nice item, easy to use and will be a great asset in the spring when I can attach the mower deck and mow the lawns. The delivery service however was a freaking nightmare!!!!!

      Serves it's purpose, need it if you have the blower

      Overall happy, did notice I cracked a tiny area of window area due to crease. Only issue is the window itself could be clearer. It takes a little getting used to, but I'll take this vs the alternative of freezing. Easy install. I did notice it effected my chair as I sit with chair all the way back and the bars for roof hit the chair stopping any movement. I will have to remove entire assembly in spring as you need the chair to move on rougher terrain.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Nearly worthless

      Does not wrap around entire way. Your back is completely exposed. The height of it want to spring out in front under hood, yet the unadjustable straps on sides were falling off because it was too low. Poorly designed as a 'Universal' cover.

      Major Design Flaw

      I bought this cab to go with my new Craftsman Tractor Model 288515. The initial issue I found was that the elastic hooks that are to secure the cab sides are too long and do not secure the sides. The major flaw I discovered was that when I went to engage my snow thrower the clutch arm on the tractor hits the front support rod of the cab preventing the clutch arm from locking in place. I called Sears technical support and they confirmed that this was a major design flaw. Sears needs to redesign the cab to properly fit their new tractors. I will be returning the cab unit for a refund. Extremely disappointed.

      Craftsman Tractor Cab

      could have been packaged better! Has some minor creases that will definitley crack befor long. Front support rods are tack welded together with 2 tack welds and one was broke in the box,luckey enough I am a welder. the support rods just rest on the plastic dash,does not seem good to me considering the bouncing that will occur and you know how well plastic does not like stuff banging against it,especially in the cold.I guess engineers don't get paid enough to figure out a receiving bracket for the support rods!
