    Hey everyone. I just added a JD 8870 Skid Steer to my fleet. I hope to do some light landscaping during the summer to help justify my purpose. I got a smokin deal on it so I had to buy it. Problem is it does not have an enclosed cab. I am looking for anyone with a new or used cab enclosure for a JD or New Holland of similar size. A factory heater unit would be nice too. If anyone has a line on a salvage yard or anywhere else online I could find one it would be greatly appreciated. Its gonna be mighty cold next winter with an open cab. Thanks

    Check out cabdepot.com They have a cab that is all glass w/metal frame sliding side windows , wiper for $1400. It looks almost factory. I know that is alot but that is about half of going to a dealer. Another option is found at skidsteersolutions.com They offer an acrylic cab for $800. It has a door w/wiper and side windows. Thats not much more than a soft cab and looks pretty nice too. They have a heater kit for a couple hundred dollars. I am going to probably look at getting one of these for my new machine. I'll take it off in the summer anyways so no reason to spend a ton of cash!!! Good luck!!!

    Yeah, i have checked them out... Was hoping for a little better deal than that, but will probably end up going with the one from Sims...
