    Default I have a dilemma

    I just bought this cab for a real good price. It is made by Sims for a Deutz Allis 5215 tractor. I have a Husqvarna lawn tractor with snow-blower and a John Deere 770 tractor with loader and back-blade. My dilemma is which one should I put it on? I know I will have to make modifications either way. I would like anyone with ideas as to which one I should install it on and why to respond. I think with modifications it will fit either one.

    If the Husqvarna is only for blowing snow... or, if the cab is easy to take off... I say, but it on the Husqvarna. That way, you'll stay warmer when blowing snow. I've never been a huge fan of cabs anyway, but at least in the winter, it could keep you a little bit warmer.

    MY vote would be to stay dry (sort OF)Blowing snow is nasty any help getting out of that blast would be great. Then remove it for cooling in summer.

    The greens are the same enough ... BUT, I'd put it on the snow blowin' machine.

    I use them both about equal.
    But I think which ever one I put the cab on will be used a lot more.
