    escavader built his and a fine job he did too.
    apparently you haven't read his thread about the build.

    GARY,Yes LB IS CORRECT[and thanks for the compliment LB] .They make them all the time.Mine is not larger than the tractor i think its proportioned just like the aftermarket ones .As far as tractor frame restrictions,If you ever looked at the frame of a 23 its built very very solid and stout to handle the back hoe .Ive posted here pics of me moving the cab on a pallet with my bucket forks ,so obviously and dont weigh what the back hoe weighs.Ithink with the doors and rear panel off ,4 guys could position it on the tractor to install,but the chainfalls are much easier.

    I have had both and see the pros and cons like this.

    Pros:

    warm in winter
    cool in summer
    dry when wet out side
    quiet and no hearing protection needed
    no alergies
    no dust for your lungs
    no sun burn so less chance of skin cancer
    no chemicals when spraying the fields
    comfortable and stay clean
    controls inside cab stay dry (seat electronics etc.)
    longer days in the field due to comfort
    added weight of cab for traction
    cd player/radio


    Cons:

    Cost (not cheap)
    more trubble to get on and off
    less head clearance
    no open air feeling on those perfect days

    That's why I need a portable cab for my BXs.
    That way i could just switch it from tractor to tractor.
