In response to John's post I am offering a refinement:
- Part Number TY15380 ... open frame 3xx & 4xx tractors ... WEATHER ENCLOSURE MOTOR COVER, DOORS, REAR PANEL AND WINDOW (TY15380) (316, 318, 322, 330, 332, 420 AND 430 LAWN AND GARDEN TRACTORS) [01F17]
- Part Number TY15076 ... Closed frame 300 Series ... WEATHER ENCLOSURE FRAME AND WINDSHIELD (TY15076) (300 TRACTOR, MFG. YEAR 1980-1990) [01F05]
- Cozy cab which was an allied cab option not manufactured by Deere but endorsed to be used on Deere Products.
My experience with Deere manufactured cabs is the fender pan floor board drop is deeper on open frame tractors than on closed frame tractors so the front posts (cab corners) are longer than closed frame tractors. An open frame cab on a closed frame tractor will require either lift blocks under the cab or shorten the front posts for a level mount. Shortening the front post will of course reduce head room in the cab. The 420 cab I tried mounting on a 314 did not have adjustments for length of front post to make the cab sit level.
I personally have tried to make cabs work for blowing snow but just haven't found one for these early model tractors that I like. What works for me is my Dad told me there are 2 things you do not do into the wind. One of them is blow snow.
Edit: I have a TY15380 that was mounted on a 430 for sale. I have replaced the vinyl in the cab door windows so asking more for the cab. I need $500 and I am still loosing money but need the space.
