New All-Metal Cabs For Small Tractors
If you own a tractor under 30 hp and it has a cab on it, you probably bought it from Leisure and Specialty Products, Inc., an Iowa company that claims to be the only firm in the U.S. - or, for that matter, in the world - making all-metal cabs for small imported tractors.
"We make cabs to fit 32 of 41 tractor models under 30 hp, and can custom-fit the others," says Freeman Smith, co-owner of Leisure and Specialty Products. The 41 different tractor models range from the Yanmar and Kubota, to foreign-built models sold by John Deere, Allis Chalmers and Massey Ferguson.
The all-steel, roll-bar cabs feature a tinted windshield, hand or electric windshield wiper, brand-matching paint with rust-resistant undercoating, and sound-deadening indooroutdoor carpeting on the floors. All windows are removable, explains Smith, who notes that "we haven't found a practical way to heat or air condition these small tractor cabs." tractors."
The cabs weigh right at 3151bs. and range in price from $660 to $760.
Leisure and Specialty Products also builds cabs to fit nearly all models of small garden tractors.
The standard garden tractor cab sells for $539.
Soon to come from Leisure and Specialty Products is a special cab for 30 to 50 hp. tractors. It's loaded with luxury features and will sell for "around $1,300."
