    Default Kubota L4200 Cab ** Completed **

    Ok everyone here are a few pics of my mostly completed custom built cab, I still have to add my wiper, lights and some other things, I also am going to be doing alot to the interior over the winter, but for now it is very useable, the heat and radio work wonderful , it was 30 degrees out today and inside the cab on LOW heat it was 65 degrees, I must admit I hate snow but want some soon so I can go play and clear my lane and neighbors driveways.

    After adding up my reciepts I have around $1800.00 in the cab, I did loose a few reciepts but the price is close. I included the cost of consumables as well but not my new chop saw and a few other tools, I needed them for other projects as well anyhow

    Overall it was a very fun project, as usuall in any project there were some bad days but I am very satisfied with what I have created.

    I want to thank many of you on here for your help and encouragement.

    That is one of the if not the best looking homemade cab I have seen. Looks factory from the pics you posted. Would love to see some inside shots.

    Nice looking place and great job on the cab. I too would like to see the interior. Looks like that splitter is up to the task also.

    Very well done. You will fall in love with your tractor all over again just like i did. It's like you bought a new tractor and be proud of your accomplishment all in the same time. I encourage anyone with a welder to give it a try. A couple thousand bucks is lots better than seven thousand and even if you don't get your money back when you sell or trade in 5 or 10 years, it can't depreciate any more that it's cost.
    Have fun in the snow.

    Thank You guys!

    I will get some pics today of the interior, As a lot of you have said its like I have a new tractor with the addition of the cab, I am very happy I have it.

    And yes the splitter is being maxed out, My outdoor boiler burns a lot of wood but beats the cost of gas
