/ M7060 cab, vulnerable to stick damage #1
I've had two tractors - both open station. The only trees I have - giant, ancient Ponderosa pines. One low limb would/could completely wipe out a cab. ( I've been hit/slapped many times.) I repair at little or no cost. ( I've also learned the skill of "riding low".)
My M6040 came with a very heavy duty, all encompassing skid plate that protects the hydraulics. No problems there either.
We were in NE WY last Sept (through Lusk and Newcastle) and you have a radically different "row to hoe" out there. Given the weather in winter and summer exposure to sun and heat I'd have a cab too!
