When using a rear mount snow blower on my LX3310, I could use the two side mirrors when backing up so didn't have to turn sideways in the seat so often. I did have to turn to see directly in back of the tractor until now. I mounted a 16" panoramic mirror, that I got on Amazon, inside the cab. I used 1" square aluminum tubing to mount the mirror to. The long tube is attached to two 2" long pieces of tubing. The short pieces of tubing have three sides cut off so the headliner screw goes through the tab that is created. Between these tabs and the headliner are two plastic washers, on each side, to take up a slight indentation in the headliner. The headliner screws were a pita to get back in so I ground a taper into the ends of them and then had to apply pressure while screwing them in. I used a long allen wrench to find the hole that the screws threaded into and to be sure nothing was in the way.

Very nice! I've been using a wide horizontal mirror in my cabs forever with the 3 point snowblower. Hardly ever have to turn around and look over the shoulder. They should be required or at least mentioned when one purchases a rear mounted snowblower as they'd save a lot of sore necks and improve the blowers reputation immensely! :ROFLMAO: If you ever need a set of winter front covers for that fine tractor of yours....look me up. Those new LX models are sure nice!!

Very nice, I have a small inside rear view mirror but it seems distorted and does not cover very much. I might look into something like yours.

Here's what I've used: A tall wide outside truck mirror mounted horizontally so that it can tilt and stay in place with a friction fit. Distortion free and with the tilt function you can see downward towards your implement or tilt it up a little when traveling down the road or there's a need for viewing farther behind. The wide mirror gives a fantastic view to the rear.

I thought the LX had a factory inside rear view mirror.
