    Thanks, by chance do you have a link to what the heater is? I'm looking to put a heater in a S185 for another contractor. Put the cab enclosure ,radio, lights on a while back and now he's starting to think about how nice a heater would be?

    I have one I'll sell. I bought it for my Bobcat and sold it without installing it. It's similar to the pic but square. It runs through the coolant system. I paid something like $280 for it. I'll let it go for $150 plus shipping. Its brand new.

    I will keep you in mind. I'm just starting to look to see what I can find. I have to measure what size I can fit in the cab. The heater goes behind the seat in a void under the cab in the S185.
