Ordered my 3rd Original Cab for new 1026r last fall after getting the new tractor.. Last fall I started hearing a load squeak coming from the back left had corner. Look could not find anything that might be causing this noise. Sat out blowing snow and had to travel bout 3/4 mile one way to do a friends drive. He is a member of the military nd over seas so I have taken the responsibility to see that his wife can get in and out of her driveway. Anyway coming back noise was getting to me started checking again found the problem. Piece of metal broke about 1/4 in from weld.
Took photos sent them to Original cab tonight came home received message they will
reinforce the rear clips to help ensure that they don't brake again.
Never had one of these to break , but they do go the extra step to take care of the customer after purchase.
A few pictures of blower and broken part.
