/ New tractor owner #21
I've had an OTC soft cab for almost 10 years. Not any real need for defrost or wiper. With the optional glass windshield you can add a wiper but I didn't. I do have the glass and it is the way to go.I'd be curious to know how one keeps visibility up in a soft cover given as how there is no defrost or wiper
There's no heater but you pick up engine/transmission heat and there's no wind. You can't work in a T shirt but when it's zero F outside, it's around freezing in the cab. Also, it's not a tight seal, so there is some air circulation. On warmer, high humidity days I see a little condensation, but not enough to be a problem.is that because it's as cold in the shell as outside? so no temp' differential = no condensation?
I'm using a rear blade, so no extra weight on the rear other than fluid in the tires, and no wheel weights. Of course having the loader attached makes it worse, but even without that the performance is disappointing.how much weight do you have on the rear? I run industrial rubbers and I do just fine in heavy snow and ice
Man I sure agree on the tires! I went to AG tires on one of my Kubota's of very similar size for snow blowing and it was a huge change. The difference between needing chains vs not needing chains.
I can tell you what I have on mine and it seems to do the job.rear blade, so no extra weight on the rear other than fluid in the tires, and no wheel weights.
