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
Raymond Wagner: nice setup how do u keep the winshhied clean??? like your garage as well
erdjohn: @sirbutchford Butch, i dont see the heater on ebay anymore, however it came
from carparts.com. If you search for acc heater the model i bought is part
number 20044A002C. Its made by ACC Climate Control, it works great. In
mounting in the cab i moved the hardware on the heater to the opposite
side, allowing the hose connections to be at the bottom. If you need
anymore help, just ask.
brett248vista: 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!
FoxHighShop: I have the 425, basically same tractor. I have a curtis cab, and am
interested in your heater setup. Please email at email@example.com Thank you!
sirbutchford: What should I search for on ebay as far as the heater core ? Thank you
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!
foolongtea: Nice rig. I currently have the JD cozy cab on mine with the 49A JD blower
up front. Could you shed some more light on the heater set up. How are you
getting enough power to run the fans. I tried with a little ceramic heater
before after I made a 12 volt connection but my stator was crying and
constantly had the bat light on. I need a little more power firendly set-up
such as this.
erdjohn: @catonmtn I bought a snowblower now, but havent used it yet. Think i'll buy
a glass front windshield and a wiper. the heater works great! Thats is
actually my basement, which is a woodshop now.
erdjohn: @brett248vista The heater will roast me out as well, it was 20 degrees
outside and you could easily be in there with just a t-shirt on.
erdjohn: @ccmdvl1960 Sure, 16" wide, 16" tall, 12 1/2" deep. I made a plywood box
with 2 angle irons out the front, and 1/2 redy rod on the rear for the
support. The angle irons sit on the side of the tractors hitch, and the 2
support straps mount on the upper tractors frame. I drilled holes in the
plywood box for the redy rod to slip through, cut out the side for the
angle irons to mount through, secured with some wood screws, and poured in
the cement. Its weight about 250 lbs. Hope this helps.
foolongtea: My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you could spare anytime for a quick
how to. It would be much appreciated.
brett248vista: @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.
erdjohn: Check out my other video with 47 snowblower
erdjohn: Dan, email me about the adapter, i took some pics and where i got the
