    Default A cab on the cheap? Interesting find...

    For the last year I have been looking at all the GREAT fab up jobs many of you have been doing. Many times I have googled and looked for cabs for my bota, and just could not see spending the $$$ for one with my short winter..

    and then I found this:

    Soft-Sided Cab for 30 HP NorTrac Tractors | Accessories | Northern Tool + Equipment

    Now this brings up a few thoughts:
    1. If NT can do this for these chinese tractors, why don't we see one for bota's this cheap?
    2. If this thing worth it?
    3. has anyone seen one like it for a bota?


    Has this been posted before?

    anyway--- thought this might bring out some news...

    Some ppl were also using golf car/cart covers on their tractors - similar construction but a lot cheaper $99 to $150 - but they may not fit a 'neatly' as a pure tractor one

    My local dealer offers these custom fit weather breaks for many brands. Add a canopy and it looks like it would be a temporary solution.

    Cabs are not just for winter.
    I enjoy my cab just as much in the summer as I do in the winter.
    I never take my cab off.
    I have a Curtis Cab with soft sides (no heat no air conditioning) on my kubota B7800.
    In the summer I take off the doors and the windshied swings out a little at the bottom,
    it's hinged at the top, (like an awning window). I also have a homebuilt awning window,
    on the back of the cab.
    It's a nice relief having the cab shade me from the sun, while out mowing on a hot summer day, (upper 90's in Maine) and I get plenty of air circulation within the cab with both large door openings on each side, plus the lower opening of the windshield and the rear awning window.
