Charlie: you'll love seeing all the things he's built. his first experience with Cub Cadet was walking behind a number 22 push mower at age 6 (i still have it). then graduated to a cub 154 lowboy at age 8.

Aaron - Really nice work on the fabrication. Sure helps to have the Right Tools for the job doesn't it?! My Buddy has the factory blade for His BIG (800cc?) 4WD 4-wheeler, also a Polaris and He can push more snow with it than My 6500+# Farmall Super H with loader, 80" wide blade and chains. He has more HP than I do, but I out weigh Him about 5 to 1#

Dennis, I have a 982 with a H42 blower on it and a cab - and a 782D with no cab and the blade, and I would rather go out and push any day of the week! Heres a shot of the 982 with the cab after I got it built / modified and the snow came.

It still has the deck on it in the pics, and had to mow with it one more time before it came off. Got kinda hot in there and felt weird. Im thinkin about gettin rid of the cab for next year and going open again.

Ken, where's the fuel tank on that beast? I'm kinda surprised that isn't your creation.

KENtucky, I have no idea, it's a safe bet he didn't use JB Weld......

Kraig, do you have pics of the front wheel assist build? looks like a 100 and it drives from the middle of the rear-end.
Man would I love to have a closer look.
