 Curtis Cab is Almost here

I got a call from the dealer on Friday saying that the Curtis cab was shipped from the manufacturer and they expect to have it on Tuesday or Wednesday. Looking forward to geting it installed. They said they would turn it around in one day. I take some pics after it is installed.

You'll love it. Got mine (soft side) on my 4210 in Oct, really makes playing (err, I mean working) out in the snow more enjoyable. If you didnt get the heater, here's a link to 12V ceramic heaters, I put one in mine and it really helps.

I have the 20,000 BTU being installed in the tractor along with lights and fan. Just finished doing the drive again this morning. It was 6 degrees with the windchill. However, once the snow blows back in your face it gets cold a lot faster.

Might have to call the dealer to see if they get it today. If so, I will get the tractor loaded on the trailer and race it down there.

Me and the county snow plow driver are gonna have a talk real soon. I know he is waiting for me to get all the winter clothes off before he makes a run and fills in the end of the driveway. I think he has a timer in his truck and waits 10 minutes after I peel everything off.....

But can't complain too loudly, give me another reason to get back in the seat and play (err work). I suspect I won't have any complaints once the cab is installed.

JD,

I got Tuck-Away Hot Water Heater 20,000 BTU-MEGA BURNE. Hopefully the link I added will take you to the site.

Base on what the dealer told me, it has a louver on the top of the unit so that it can be directed to the front window. I also will have the fan blowing on the window to keep it from fogging up.

wildbill,

You're confusing me with another poster. I actually am picking up a cab from another poster here (psimonson) who is moving South.

Cheers

The one I got doesnt appear to be offered anymore, but I got one very close to this one.

http://www.sportsimportsltd.com/12volcerheat.html

It isnt powerful, but in the small cab, it does help. I have it screwed into the middle of the rh A pillar, so that I can tilt it onto the w/s to help defrost, or towards me. If you live in a really cold area (like upstate NY, Vermont, etc), then a high BTU may be better. Here in Va, I really dont need one that high. Just a thought for you.
