Combine cab mounted on swather
"We've been mounting IH combine cabs on Versatile swathers since 1972. It works great," says Lawson Jones, Webster, N. Dak., who recently put a IH 915 cab on a Versatile 400.
"It's a nice cab with more visibility and better construction than most cabs built for swathers. The best thing about them is that they're easy to find and reasonably priced at salvage yards around the country. Most of them have air conditioning included. You can purchase an extra pulley to bolt onto the flywheel from Ford to drive the air conditioner compressor.
"We first came up with the idea because of health and safety reasons. I made the first conversion back in 1972. The cab is the right dimension front to back. You need to add two angle irons to the cab sides by the operator platform area. The last time I made the conversion, two of us performed the task in a single morning."
