Clear View Deere Cab
"I made it using metal from the shipping crates the tractor was shipped in," says retired farmer Louis Kadlec, Pisek, N.D., who made a cab for his snowblower-equipped Deere 314 garden tractor.
He welded the metal strips together to form the frame. The frame was then covered with sheets of clear plastic, fastened to the frame with large washers and screws. The roof is made from 1/2-in. external plywood. Canvas covers the hand controls and foot pedals.
"The cab, which fastens to the tractor with three bolts and two quick clips, swings up out of the way to service the engine by simply removing one bolt, the two quick clips, and a spring that holds the canvas in place. One man can easily tip the cab up on the two rear hinges that attach to the rear support bracket," says Kadlec.
