Ariens Cab, no fit

I have a new Deluxe 28+ with the 414cc engine and purchased the Ariens cab for it. I have tried every configuration but the front chute crank handle hits the cab cross member. Any suggestions?

My suggestion would be to contact Ariens tech support or the dealer you bought it from.
Good Luck

Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold

Sounds like you have the wrong model. There are different models for different machines. My dealer said the Ariens cab was pretty weak and sold me an Original Tractor Cab. The cab is very high quality except the width is too narrow. If all you do is walk in a straight line then it's fine, but you have zero room to move to the left or right. When it wears out I'm going to try the Ariens because it looks much wider.

Pictures of how it's mounted and the area that's interfering might help too.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

That crank location is definitely going to interfere with many cab frames. I think you need to find a design that has a higher or lower than usual frame cross member, or perhaps one that is mounted more forward than most, with a slit to go around the crank shaft.

I agree with the other advice to consult Ariens about the cab that fits.

If you really like the cab I'd consider trying to find a way to have a chute crank made where the "cranking handle" was on the other side of the control panel if possible.
