Benjamin Ward: I think those cabs are a good bargain. Ive got this tractor with a loader and im going to make one of those cabs work some way. With the John Deere cab it not possible. If I re do the crossmember on the loader it should work other wise it would go right through the windsheild. Nice unit in my opinion this is John Deeres last good overbuilt steel framed tractor. In other words GOOD metal. Thanks for the video.
Joe Kiersten Fallon: I thinking of doing a heater as well. Where are you coming off of the engine for water supply and return?
Dominick Guerra: i have a original metal curtis cab that came off a 345 it has all glass windshield and 12 volt wiper! its on craigs list right now call or text its for sale and beautiful!! 810 347 9598 flushing michigan
erdjohn: If you scroll down to my earlier comments, i have some info that may help.
cc-pa: Great video! Could you provide me with more info about the concrete ballast on the rear? Particularly, the physical dimensions and the location of mounting points. I have a similarly equipped JD 425 and am in need of more weight in the winter!
Thanks in advance!
Raymond Wagner: nice setup how do u keep the winshhied clean??? like your garage as well
Brett DiMichele Studios: @erdjohn
That's what I want to hear! :) I really need to get that fan ordered and fab up the new sheetmetal box with the heater vents in it. Should cost less than 30 dollars, the sheetmetal is free, I have to buy the fan and the automotive vents.
Brett DiMichele Studios: Great video John, and a super nice machine too!
So how much heat does it throw? I thought mine would roast me out of the cab. That hasn't happened yet. But like we discussed via messages, once I get a new fan in there that covers more surface area, and pushes through the core, I think I'll be set!
