Default Homemade cab.

Hi all,

This is a repost of something I submitted a while ago, but which keeps coming up, and for whatever reason, the search engine finds hard to find.

So, I have a JD 2210 tractor. A friend of mine who builds race cars made this cab. It is entirely made of aluminum and held together by 1/4 turn Dzus fasteners. It comes on and off so easy, I'll bet some of you can't remove your MMM as quick.

Here are some pics:

Aluminum uprights bolt to ROPS:


Attach to exisiting inside ROPS holes as shown:

ROPS lights are shrowded as shown:

A view from the inside:


Please go to page 2

First time I believe I've seen this also. Don't know how I missed this the first go around. I've always wondered how well a bolt together cab would be. Thanks JDF for the repost. slkpk

That is a well thought out homemade setup!

I put my own cab on and I don't think I'd ever want to take it off and put it back ever again.

Thanks guys.

TG, the joystick is tight at the farthest right position, but not needing gloves helps!

Very nice. Thanks for posting. I would love to have a cab but it's way down on the list for now. That is a very nice machine.
