    Real nice job! I'm coming up on retirement, and first project will be a DIY cab for my 2305. You've given me some ideas :-)

    Thank you. Since I built it in our one shop at work, the guys kept track of the progress. When the pieces were put together on the tractor they informed me it was no longer a kubota. The renamed it "The Tank".

    Just went back a few pages and looked again at your cab...very nice, indeed. (Those forward-facing lights are a real help, I bet!) Seems with most any of the vehicles I've ever played with, "weight is the enemy"-- but the reverse seems to be true with tractors. Any idea how much extra weight the cab added? I bet it helps with traction.

    Have you had a chance to play in the snow yet? Did you folks get hit a week or so back, or did you manage to escape that storm? Matter of fact, looks like you might get some more tonight; we're supposed to miss this one. Got about a foot last Tuesday, but a lot of the snow is now going away-- though slowly. WBB

    I believe the cab weighs around 250#. Still no snow because I don't count the 1-1/2" I scurried out to scrape before it melted. You guys got all of the snow this winter. Mebbe next year! We go in spurts here. Some winters are no-shows and others are a lot more "for real". I'm glad I did the build. It'll come in handy one of these days. Heck, I remmeber some early and late season mowing in the evenings that had me pretty chilly.

    You're right. I got to play for a few hours with very heavy snow for a few hours. Shovelling the few feet of sidewalk for the neighbor and a small amount at my garage doors was enough hand work. That snow was almost as heavy as dirt.

    Today's a different story. Freezing rain is what hit us this time. There are a couple large limbs down in the driveway and I'm not comfortable going under the trees to clear them till some of the ice melts off. The property looks like a tree trimmer was here and didn't clean up after himself. I was out for about 10 minutes to move my pickup away from a tree. While keeping one eye on the tree I had to use my MAPP gas torch to thaw the door so it would open. In the short time I was outside four more big branches fell. Things are a mess around here but amazingly the power hasn't gone off - yet.
