    DK45 Cab Comments.

    Ok I'm a big but not huge guy, 6'-3" & 225 lbs. I have a Kubota L-39 and thought the DK-45S Cab was really slick as many times I wished for a cab vs. my 4pt Rops with roof. My comments on the DK45S cab are. Cab is sturdy and well sealed. Better than Kubota cabs I have checked out. Step up...

    Weak Loader on my new L39! What is going on?
