    First Use of Mauser Cab with Snowblower

    Merry Christmas! We received two inches of snow here in Yakima for Christmas. It gave me the opportunity to clear my asphalt driveway in my new Mauser cab. In less than a half hour the driveway was cleared of snow. I VERY much enjoy the warmth and comfort of the Mauser cab. I also highly recommend getting the remote electrical piston on the discharge chute. It allows you to control everything from inside the cab. Here are some pictures.

    This is mother nature showing how cruel it can be. As a young lad growing up in the 60s in Minnesota we experienced unbelievably harsh winters with little or no power equipment to move snow. My grandfather had a John Deere A with an old wing snow plow that helped immensely but he often times spent the winter in Texas and I was a little too young to start the old "A". And with no power steering and hand clutch it was too much for me. Our snow removal system was my brother and I with two steel, not aluminum, shovels. And of course it blew in nearly as fast as we shoveled.

    So now, we have these beautiful tractors with nice cabs and two stage snowblowers that can clear out a 2' snow fall in no time. So what happens, we get 2" of snow instead. For people who hate snow I'm sure they think this is just fine. But for me, who still like to play in the snow, (winter is my favorite season) these soft winters are depressing.

    I'm sure if I sold the 4066r, the 1026r and the two snowmobiles winter would return to Minnesota. But while I am a bit superstitious I would hate to get caught without the right equipment. So guess I will keep everything for now and hopefully mother nature returns to make winter memorable again.

    Have you thought about some kind of therapy? Much better medications and treatments available, then back when you had that old JD A.

    The Mauser cab is tremendous. I am getting a workout with mine. I am at 73 hours of total time and I had 25 hours up to the 12th of December, and nearly 50 hours since plowing snow.

    Did you put a radio in yours? I use the Bluetooth Headphones to listen to the satellite radio and even when I am out spreading snow melt or using the shovel at a couple of places, the music keeps playing when i am 50 feet from the tractor. Pretty cool. I also have my phone synced through the radio and there is a microphone installed in the headliner where the right hand switches are located.

    I fretted and pondered and pontificated and stressed over whether to spend the money on the cab. What an incredible waste of my time. My advice to anyone who asks, Buy the Mauser Cab, you won't be sorry.......

    Here is just one of the many benefits......I installed a remote thermometer with the outside unit on the underside of my Imatch hitch, facing down. The main unit is just to the left of the seat and held there with 2 small velcro strips on the back of the unit......The numbers say everything.....

    We have gotten 8" inches of snow since 9am today when I finished plowing. We are now in a Winter Storm warning through Monday night. 8" to 12" tonight by morning and another 12 to 18 inches by Monday. Also, blowing and drifting winds at 25 mph to 30mph with gusts to 40 mph......Drifts to 3 feet or more by this time tomorrow night. They said "local amounts could be much heavier and expect lake effect areas to receive snow at the rate of 2" per hour..........(That's my area........,.)

    As far as the cost of the cab, my plowing receivables will have paid for the cab in less than 3 weeks, which is better than I ever thought it would be. I have already plowed more this month than I did all last winter. Making great use of the cab, that's for sure........

    The Mauser product is really well made and the fit and finish is superb. I couldn't be happier.......

    Hope you get the use out of your cab I am seeing with mine................

    P.S. - I strongly encourage you to add the rear view camera to the cab like I did to mine. It's a tremendous safety item and makes seeing behind you much easier and even backing into the garage, etc,. you will have perfect sight. I use it as much as I look out the windshield..........I covered it in the thread about the impressions of my new 1025R.........

    Agreed, you will not be disappointed, unless you own a backhoe, then a rather large disappointment.

    I've had mine for a few weeks now and have had enough snow in Ontario Canada to fully road test it. I almost cook in it if I dress for winter lol and have learned what to wear in the comfort of the cab. Didnt get the radio because my headset works good drowning out the engine noise and I thought I'd have to have the radio way too loud to make it worthwhile. A great fun investment and an invaluable tool in my arsenal! Enjoy yours!

    No, I didn't get the radio and I don't plan on getting one installed. I too use radio headphones (Peltor). I'm totally pleased with my cab. I added the LED rear light kit (($120) and am pending getting the rear safety beacon. Hopefully, I won't get overworked moving snow this year but if I do, I'll be comfortable.

    Very nice looking cab, the Mauser cab was not available when I bought mine. I have the Tektite on mine and love it as well. Will be getting some seat time the next couple of days as they are calling for 20" of snow with 60 mph winds. Lots of snow. I love playing in the snow
