Snow blower bolt on "Cabs"

I am getting tired of getting covered head to toe with snow. What is the consensus on snow thrower bolt on cabs? Recommendations, etc. would be appreciated.

They work well, but if you get a cheap cab expect to replace it every few years.

I bought the Arnold Deluxe snow thrower cab. $100 shipped overnight. Gotta love Amazon. The reviews are very helpful.

Make sure it'll fit through whatever door you run your snowblower through. Have seen a few of them on Clist because they were too tall. You might want to check there for one.

Good advice. I should be all set. The snowblower resides in my attached garage.

Love the thing, I don't use it all the time, but it comes on and off real easy.

It was real nice the other day when the snow was really fluffy and it was very windy. My neighbor looked like a snowman, I was nice and dry

I would like to ask a question about these covers because I have wondered something for years.

When the snow is blowing around, does the snow stick to the plastic causing a build up of snow and eventually blocking your view? Or is there a product that you put on to omit this?

That's what I want to read about my new purchase.

Thanks.
