Nifty Deere Gator Cab
"My Deere Gator came with just a small windshield. We needed a larger one to keep bugs out of our faces but that we could put down in hot weather when we needed a breeze to stay cool," says Case Van Wyk, Pinetown, N.C.
"We made a large windshield that folds down against a front support in hot weather. Then we made a large cab using a 275-gal. square poly tank that was being thrown away. It's reinforced with wire mesh so it will stand up. We cut out wide openings in the sides and curved it toward the back.
"Since the dump box comes up close behind the seats - and you have to raise the dump box to get at the engine - we cut off the bottom half of the back wall of the cab and fastened it to the dump box. It raises with the box for easy access to the engine.
"The doors for the cab are not shown in the photo but they're made like jeep doors with 3/4-in. square tubing and covered with lightweight aircraft covering, and painted.
"The cab looks great and works better than cabs you can buy on the market."
