Installed a cab and touched up my New Holland

    I bought this skid steer October 29th after searching with no luck for a heated cab skid steer. I bought this solid cab kit for $1260 with everything including heat.

    After I installed the kit I got a quart of New Holland paint ($18) and really touched up the paint.

    Sorry I didn't get too many sequence pictures but you get the idea. Ignore that ugly guy, he was mad since he was having trouble getting a bolt in the hole.

    Looking good! Is that a door from ebay? We bought the lexan version last year and not impressed, gaps everywhere, wiper motor is in the worst place and did I mention gaps? Nothing like getting in the cab with 4" of snow.

    Yes its the ebay one, I actually went and picked it up at his farm in New Holland Pa, straight up Amish guy, said he made 40 kits in the last 2 months.

    As far as gaps, yea i have 2-3, its not too bad, however none of the holes lined up anywhere and he sent all the wrong bolts, but what do you expect I guess, cheaper this route

    The issue is not being cold, its foggy windows when the cab is damp and wet from rain or wet snow. If the guys can keep it dry in there, it is very comfortable for them.

    Certainly no hot water forced air heater but it helps

    coat the inside with rain ex anti fog an pick up a small fan that blows across the window like they have in school busses

    I have a similar heater as it was very hard to find a heater for mine because its a Deutz oil cooled engine.

    Looks good.......Thumbs Up

    I always keep an old wiper blade in the cab with me to "squee-gee" the windows off when they fog up............

    The machine has worked well this season, we plowed 5 times and tonight might be 6. The windows on the side are plexiglass and since they do not open that is part of the window fogging problem we sometimes encounter.

    Like I said when I got the machine, I couldn't find an enclosed cab and this was a quick relatively inexpensive option. The operator from this year seemed to be happy using the machine.
