Tractor Cab Converted Into Deer Stand
I converted an old tractor cab into this nifty deer stand. All the windows are still in the cab, but I removed everything else and added a swivel office chair on caster wheels. During hunting season I keep an infrared heater inside the cab.
  The cab mounts on a welded-together, triangle-shaped frame made from 2-in. sq. tubing. The legs at the base of the frame are about 12 ft. apart, and it's 10 ft. high to the base of the cab. A metal stairway with railings leads to a mesh screen platform located next to one of the cab's doors. I welded the other cab door shut.
  I used 5-in. channel iron to build the steps and 1-in. sq. tubing for the railings. I welded 16-in. dia. disc blades on the bottom of each leg to keep the stand from sinking into the ground. If I want I can use a front-end loader to move the entire structure. (David Lindula, 3955 Admiral Rd., Iron, Minn. 55751 ph 218 744-3399)
