Well I can't comment on snow, but I couldn't imagine running my tractor bushhogging with an open cab.

I'm not a fan of cold weather so I personally would spend the money to be a little more comfortable. It goes a long way on how the elements take a toll on your body year after year.

The more comfortable you make it the easier it will be to get an operator and the longer shift they will work !

I didnt think you could get a cab on tractors that small. I always was under the impression you had to get the 3 series to get a cab.

How many hours can you work in 20 degree temps with blowing snow without the cab ?

With a cab you should be able to work , 12 to 14 , so the additional hours worked multiplied by your adverage hourly rate may give you a better idea of the return rate on buying a cab .

I would say yes buy one .
