Just incase anyone is looking for a cheaper alternative rather than spend $6,000+ for a cab
No i guess not, they wanted $6K for it PLUS an installation fee on top of the $6K.The BX23S is a new model, it will take some time for the aftermarket companies to catch up.
Guess you should have gotten the factory cab!
Very late update.... the Original Tractor Cab Hard Top Cab Enclosure - 12078 will fit the bx23s, I just ordered one for mine... See the video link:I contacted the company that makes them, they dont build one to fit the BX23S. Looks like its the way the BX23s ROP`s is built, its a different ROP`s on the BX23S. The BX23S ROP`s is all by itself, no other tractor model in its size uses that particular ROP`s. Location of the fold down area seems to be the issue, fastener locations, which is where the cab is mounted to ROP`s(?). I always seem to pick/buy the equipment that you cant ever get anything for...story of my life it seems...lol.
Here is a breakdown and instructions for the cab
Heres a video of the installation... i can see why it wont fit the BX23S`s now.
^I too could not justify the cost of the cab for my 23s...$6k was just too much money for me to spend, almost 1/3 the price of the damn tractor LOL.
Crash277, I think the Curtis cab for the BX23s is 8000.00 in Canada :/ crazy expensive... My OTC will be just fine and I can remove it in the summerme 3..... i find my prescription inserts in my snow goggles, and my yukon hat are good enough for now when blowing snow lol
Well done to get it at 850.00, I too am surprised they didn't make the back removable for the backhoe. I also bought the 2380 cab and will be installing it next week and from what I understand, you can remove the back to get to the backhoe on the 2380 model, although I will be removing mine in the summer anyway... Do you have pics of the mod you made?What? They are going to make a cab for the BX23S and you wont be able to access the backhoe??????? Seems easy enough to do...I dont see what the problem is???
So I assume it will be the 2380 cab with different brackets? Sad. I have the 2380 cab on my BX23S and you could see how they use one design to cover multiple models! A little wonky in my mind! I like the way they dont tell you that you need to remove the grab handles so the doors will shut! The instructions tell you on the last page but no videos mention it! Well I modified that myself! Im glad I didnt wait for the new model! I own one but I think they are a little cheesy and dont think they are worth $1250.00 but I paid $850 for mine at Messics!
