    316k cab options

    Is a cab considered an attachment? Hope this is the right place..... After getting full of snow yesterday while blowing snow I'm thinking about looking into a cab. But I need some options first. For the guys who have a cab, is it worth it? On an air cooled tractor how do you keep the windows from fogging? How much room in there inside on a 300 series tractor? What options/brands are there? Thanks in advance!

    I'm interested in this as well so I'm going to follow your thread.
    I blew snow with one of my tractors for the first time Saturday and it didn't take long for me to wish I had a cab. Curious to know how much room there is with the seat adjusted all the way back? Also wondered about the fogging. I had a pair of ski goggles on the other day and couldn't even keep those from fogging.

    I dont need one right now so I can take my time looking. I know they are NOT easy to find. I might have a line on most of a cab for a 140. Not sure I could make that work or not? Maybe I can make my own?

    I also tried the ski goggles but that was almost worse than nothing. Fogged up, iced up etc. Worthless.

    Maybe I should just find another tractor with a cab and pull the cab off and sell the tractor!

    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.

    Seems to be the best way to find one.

    I've been doing some research on Google and other forums. It looks like a few guys have built cabs from wood. Some of them actually look really nice. I have basically a full woodshop at home so maybe I'll go that route. With the correct bracing and build technique it should be plenty strong.

    I stole this pic from another forum. Looks good to me.

    If done well enough and painted I bet it will look pretty good.
    I'd put the hinges on back of the door and make them suicide doors though.
