    2305 Original Cab wiper

    I have used an original cab with a rear mounted snowblower for the past seven years. I just picked up a front mounted 47 inch snowblower to try out this year. What are the opinions about upgrading to a front windshield wiper? Also how is the install and wiring?

    My opinion based on experience is that a front wiper is a must for snow blowing. A heated defroster helps a great deal if you can manage to install one.

    The install is easy and straight forward. Just drill the proper size hole in canopy edge. Wiring is simple as well. I grounded the wiper to the cab frame and ran a hot from an empty spot on the fuse box to the wiper switch which I mounted near the wiper. Piece of cake!

    Tips: You must have the optional hard windshield for the wiper to work. Shop around for a wiper kit. I have seen them for much less than OTC charges. You could possibly get by with a manual wiper for a lot less if you can tolerate working the wiper by hand.

    Or have the wife set beside you operating the manual wiper blade for you. You do know that it was a woman that invented the windshield wiper? Back in the day this was how they worked, with the wiper handle on the passenger side. Sorry! I couldn't resist and get off thread.

    You will need a wiper with a front snow blower. Do you have a glass windshield? That is required for a wiper.
    On the tractors I used a an Original Cab on, I had a 12 volt cigarette lighter style outlet in the dash. I put a plug on the wiper wires & plugged it into the outlet.

    IMO electric wiper is a must if using front snowblower. I've had to stop for a few minutes even with electric wiper just to get the windshield cleaned .
    Electric wiper is a easy install drill correct size hole thinking a smaller hole to attach wiper motor to roof. Connect to power source ,cigarette lighter plug, direct to battery or other type connection.

    I followed the advice of shopping around and found a wiper kit from TMC-IN. Cost was $80 shipped, I just have to add a switch and wiring. Hopefully everything works out, and I may have enough money left over to add a linear actuated for the chute.
