State-Of-The-Art Gator Cab
The cab bolts onto the Gator's standard rollover protective structure (ROPS), without the need to remove the ROPS from the vehicle. The cab's roof and doors are made from heavy duty ABS plastic and mount on a steel frame. There are glass windows all the way around. The windshield is hinged at the top and opens forward for ventilation, while the rear window slides open like a pickup slider window. The doors can be lifted off during hot weather.
"There's no need to remove the ROPS from the vehicle like with other add-on Gator cabs," says Christopherson. "Deere offers a cab for the Gator but the doors are hinged on back and open rearward, so you have to walk around them to walk back to the bed. And the Deere cab has poly windows which scratch more easily."
Fits the Gator HPX and XUV models and is available through Deere dealers.
Sells for around $2,600. Additional kits include a cab heater, windshield wiper, and auxiliary rear lights.
