Deere Garden Tractor Cab
Raymond Nance, Springfield, Ohio, made a cab for his 2001 Deere 335 garden tractor so he can work in comfort when clearing snow during the winter.
  The cab is made entirely from galvanized sheet metal and has a single door and big plexiglass windows on all sides so the driver has a great view. The plexiglass windows are screwed into metal frames from the outside so they can be easily removed if they ever crack or break.
  He used angle iron to make the cab's frame, which bolts onto metal brackets on the tractor. By removing a wing nut, he can slip the front of the cab off so he can raise the hood. Foam rubber around the fenders keeps cold air out of the cab. "With sheet metal doors and plastic windows, the cab is lightweight. In fact, by removing four bolts one person can use a chain to lift the cab straight up and off in almost no time at all," says Nance.
  L-shaped brackets on back of the tractor support a set of weights.
  "The cab doesn't have a heater, but the windows are big enough that sunlight helps heat up the cab during the winter. The main thing is that it keeps the wind off me," says Nance.
