Sun Screens Keep Cab Cool
Strecker says his Econo Shades make use of a new vinyl-coated fiberglass screen that blocks out 80% of the sun's rays and yet doesn't totally obstruct any part of the window the way fin-type shades would. "The screen won't stretch, shrink, rust, burn or unravel. It's flexible and yet tough for long use," says Strecker.
S & S Supply makes shades to fit most late model tractor cabs and some popular older models, and they can custom-fit any tractor, combine or other cab. The shades attach inside the window with velcro strips so they can be quickly removed when not needed (they roll up in a storage tube) or folded down for night work.
Retail price for a 3-window cab is $80 to $85. A set of screens for a 5-window cab sells for $95 to $99.
