Mike,
I had a blower attached to a sears mower/tractor. Live in Ohio. Thought the mower/tractor would be great when I moved to a corner lot. Disliked all the the backup- pullups needed to make turns while mowing as the unit didn’t have a small turning radius.

Removing the mower deck, mounting the blower, weights and chains took considerable time. Don’t forget you have to change it all back in the spring. The manual lift while it worked was a pain. With a large amount of weight on front axles it was not easy to steer.

No experience with a cab except when I was a kid on farm and we called them a heat houser. They funneled engine heat back to you. They were a wonderful help until most tractors started coming with permanent cabs.

The area you have to clear is much larger than I have so the mounted blower system make be better experience for you.

I now have a 5 horse, 2 stage self propelled blower I got from an estate sale. Works well for me for the 3-6 times needed a year.
