Woods ZTR (6210) with Snow Blower

I have ZTR Woods 6210 mow'n machine with the snow blower attachment. I also had the Woods cab but it was cheaply made and it fell apart (metal fatique). Welding and patching was not going to over come its demise.

Below is a representative picture of mine, but it is not mine in the picture. I got out of the habit of hooking up the snow blower which is simply a single stage auger but it works well. I want to post this because after dry and relatively mild winters followed by the failure of the cab I have not used the snow blower attachment for 4 years. This spring I am going to do some maintenance to the snow blower attachment in preparation for next season. Even if there is no, wind blocking comfy cab any more, it is still a pretty good way to blow snow.

That must be really nice when it starts getting below zero

What happened to the cab ?

What happened to the cab ?
The Cab simply suffered metal fatique. It's made out of steel that is bolted together and sections of UV resistant vinyl create the side walls. Weight was a very awkward 80+ lbs. or so. I left it on all year long simply because taking it off and on was a two man job. and daughter is grown and my wife has MS. I have great neighbors but they are not simply across the fence, they are 1/4 mile away. The steel section helped shade me when mowing in the summer. The vinyl sections were removed for the summer and put back on in the winter.

Metal fatiqued and fractured under the windshield. I would Tig weld it back together and it would crack some place else. I then added reinforcing pieces of steel such as square tubing and gussets. No luck, it finally broke all the way through on the bottom of the windshield. It wasn't corroded, just fatiqued. I was like the little dutch boy trying to plug the dike. I couldn't keep up with the metal failures.

I suppose I could add an exoskeleton but the time comes where you have to set priorities. Do I repaint the half bath in the house, repair the sump in the basement or create another science project in my home shop?

Another representative picture. Funny, I have had this since 1996 and don't have any pictures of it.
