 Tractor cab

I finally got my Curtis soft sided cab for my 2210. Pricey for sure..but absolutely solid. It took me 4 hours to install minus hooking up the wires for the windshield wiper.

Rather than spend the extra $300 for the "tuck-a-way" heater I installed a 800w 110v car interior heater overhead and built a mount for my Honda 1000w genset on the ballast box. I drove around in 20f temps for awhile and it kept things toasty warm.

The nice thing about the soft side is that you can upgrade later to the hard side (why??) and in the summer, slide off the "Jeep" style doors and rear curtain and essentially have a canopy + windshield/wiper.

The doors are super wide and access is as easy as with no cab installed...but you have extra spots to mount things on..like tool carriers, drink holders..etc. It also has mounting flanges for adding the optional heater.

In Alaska...this is a major improvement...in Minnesota, Michigan..etc...a major major improvement!! (warmer up here)

PS: last winter I snowblowed 3 times. Give me a break!

That sounds mighty comfy. Would you mind me asking how much it all cost? Some pictures would be cool if you get time.

Pics are posted. I moved the rear work lights to the front under the lip of the roof. I added a single work light to the rear. The overhead 800w heater does more than expected. ...it gets really warm inside!

Lighting is rather superb. It's like daylight now with all the lights on.

The pics don't show the new light arrangment.

Wildman I tried one of those electric heaters once for a customer bu the was quick to have me yank it out. Maybe when the temps get a little lower you wuold appreciate the water heater. I did not have the generator to use to assist the battery.

Wildman, two points you may wish to consider before winter hits.

First, if you are going to keep windows clear on any cab, you need either lots of heat, or the drying effect of a a/C comprressor, so I'm not sure you're going to get much benefit from that electric heater, they just can't produce the BTU's required to keep up with the lack of insulation on a soft (drafty) cab.

Second, there is a huge benefit from putting an ordinary 12V. fan in the cab to blow air across the windshield since condensation cannot form in the presence of moving air, in the old days trucks had notoriously poor heaters but a couple fo fans blowing across the window kept them clear. Our family used to contract to the County for snowplowing, and I can recall hearing of our drivers taking coal oil lamps out with them, they used them as heaters and they sat in brackets on the floor next to them.

Best of luck.

Wildman, that looks like a nice comfy setup! Very clean looking and the color matches. I can't speak to the heat and condensation issues since I have no experience with those. Thanks for the pics.

2flints, your picture link doesn't work. I'd like to see your cab since I have a 4310 too. If you're a premium member you can upload the picture to your profile and not mess with links.
