Where To Buy A Custom Cab
"A lot of cabs utilize fairly universal designs, but a customer can send drawings, and we will create whatever their needs demand," says Dean Myers. "Our most unique cabs were used on towers by the U.S. Air Force at fields testing experimental aircraft."
While most cabs are a little more mundane, Myers says company workers are real craftsmen on every cab. They handle the basic construction, as well as the seating, wiring, AC, heat and sound insulation.
"We do about everything except hydraulics," says Myers. "We wire for 110-volt outlets, do double wall insulation with 1 1/2-in. polystyrene between steel layers, and whatever else is needed."
Standard equipment on cabs includes safety glass on all four sides and 30 in. from the bottom of the side, one door with lock, sound suppression package and a steel floor equipped with non-skid floor mat. Options include front wiper, sliding windows, fluorescent lights, 110 and 220-volt outlets, a wall-mount air conditioner and heater, locking handles, tinted glass and counter top.
Prices start at around $3,000 for a small cab. There's no extra charge for custom engineering, even on small cabs.
