Default Tractor Cabs

I'm thinking on getting a cab for my L3800 and wondering if anyone out there has an after market cab on their Kubota ? I'd put it on in the late Fall and take it off in the Spring.

Is a heater or fan a must to eliminate "fogging up" ??

Sims Cabs makes an aftermarket cab, not really sure how perminate or removeable it is. But here's their website.

I have a Sims cab. It has a hard (metal) top with a windshield and windshield wiper. It has button on vinyl sides and rear panel. Left side panel has a zip up door. When temps warm up in the spring unbotton and take off the sides and rear to take off. The windshield and top of the cab stays on. Cabdepot.com is Sims website.
There is another company that makes cabs also name Curtis.
I don't have their address maybe curtis cabs.com

Thanks Eric M. I had someone waiting on me to help with feeding the cattle. Didn't have time to look it up.

Thanks. The snow here in Michigan is making me think about whether I should buy one initially, or spring for it later. I guess I need to "mull this over" a bit......

Not trying to tell ya how to spend your money but something as huge of an add on as a cab you'd be alot better off geting the dealer to install it on the tractor from the get go rather then wait and install it later. I'm sure you'll be kicking yourself in the ass for waiting and not geting a cab installed in the first place. The tractor is already on their lot and close to the shop. Later down the road either you'll have to haul the tractor back to your dealer and wait for them to get to you next in line and not have your for a few days to maybe a week or more.

I've allso been looking at permanent cabs. I've been using a golf cart cover draped over my canopy. Works pretty well, but want something that looks better. I've had my eye on the Laurin cabs out of Canada. I live in Delaware and don't know of any dealers locally who handle Laurin cabs for Kubota. Here is their web address WWW.Laurin-inc.com
