My dad used to say looks don't get you down the road. What you have looks like it will do the job just fine.

I'm on my second seat already.....They wreck everything. Having a couple kitty's helps, but they ruin things too....like drag dead pocket gophers into my boat and such.

I have to remove the plastic shroud around the engine every two weeks to get them out of it before they wreck something.

Even with the nice big windows you might want to hang a couple reflectors on it. If it were mine I'd have a couple LEDs up high on the sides just in case.
Nice work on fitting that to your rider. :cool

I agree, reflectors are a must. I pan to put an LED flood light up top. Maybe even a strobe later down the road.

Lots of work left, have to figure out a way to mount my actuator on the snow blower to lift it.....and a window motor for chute control.

I got time though, super el Nino and all....Lol

All the little things aside I really like it! If I had a need for such here in South Texas I'd might consider, But we don't see much snow here. Can't wait to see the finished product!

So here I'm south central Minnesota, we were supposed to get 12" of snow. So I kicked my butt into gear to get this thing operational. Here are some more pics....

Not the best video....but it's something. The actuator is pretty slow....but I couldn't justify spending $400 on a faster one.

Forgot to mention, we only got about 3" of the 12" we were supposed to get....very disappointed.

That's a pretty sweet get-up there Norse! Great job! It's too bad you couldn't put it to the test...

...however if the pope ever visits your neck of the woods
