Clear “Cab” Keeps ATV Operator Warm
“It’s very light, only about 25 lbs., so it’s easy to lift up and tilt forward,” says Miller. “I use a light strap to keep it from tilting too far forward.”
Miller used 3/4-in. aluminum angles to frame and attach the 3 sheets of plexiglass, securing them with pop rivets. The frames rest on the front and back racks. Trapezoid shaped sheets of aluminum extend down from the plexiglass frame to the footrests. Framing for them extends upwards to tie in to both the top and bottom of the plexiglass frames. Doing so, they also provide support to the frames. Miller also attached framing without the plexiglass to the rear of the cab with additional cross framing for increased rigidity.
“It doesn’t have a top or back, but it makes a big difference when we have a really cold wind,” says Miller, noting that he can remove the cab quickly when not needed.
