    x730 cab heater hookup on engine

    Hi all! New to the site. I have a 2016 x730 25.5 hp with a soft cab. Looking at adding a cab heater was wondering how to hookup the heater hoses to the engine. Don't see a lot of info on this, thanks Dave. Pics would be a help also!

    Going by your avitar. I don't think anyone makes a heater directly for that cab. Especially one that draws heat from the engine coolant.

    JD 48" plow with angle from seat kit & heavy duty skid shoes.
    4 suitcase weights and chains.
    JD tow behind spreader.
    JD 42" lawn sweeper.
    JD 10P cart.
    JD JS61 RWD walk behind mower.
    Stihl KM110 power head with pole saw, shaft extension, power scythe, curved shaft edger, 2 straight shaft cutters (string & blade).
    Stihl MS180-CBE 16" saw.

    x730 cab heater hookup on engine

    If you have a heater that you want to connect to the cooling system of your engine go to the Cozy Cab website and then go to their manuals page near the bottom of the John Deere section you will see a manual for the X7 series.

    Here is the link but I am not sure it will get you to the manual.
    http://www.cozycab.com/wp-content/up...3/05-11243.pdf

    The manual has very good instructions c/w pictures.

    Hope this helps

    Stopped by my john deere dealer yesterday to get a price on a john deere hard cab and heater, about $5200.00, if I leave the cab on year round does anyone know if I can still use my 14bu bagger system? Thanks Dave.

    I don't know but your dealer should be able to answer that.

    I have a Cozy Cab on my X728. The cab can be removed if you have four guys, one on each corner. Or if you have a way to lift it with a hoist. You can remove most of the glass so leaving the cab on is an option.

    I can tell you with all certainly the heater is a pain to get the air out of it so the coolant will flow through it. Took the dealer three attempts to get it. Ended up having to pressurize the system with compressed air to burb the air bubble out. After that it has been absolutely nothing but pleasure. I hear from those who install these aftermarket heaters that that gators are even harder to do due to the engine being so low in respect to the heater. Still, the struggle is worth it. I was blowing snow in minus 5 degrees the other day without even thinking of taking a hostage as I did in the past on the open cab set up I used.

    As far as the implements capability with the Cozy Cab only the front end loader was it. The mounts are in the same spot as the front cab are. I don't remember if the bagger system is or not but as Mr. H-D Dealer Dude said your dealer should either know that answer or at least know where to look.

    Unless your one of those tough guys who live for frozen ice and snow covering your face at 5 am in temperatures barley in the teens. If not colder. Or your clearing snow in the Florida area, get the cab.

    Being a mechanic by trade the heater shouldn't be too much of a problem! Learned a lot of tricks after about 45 yrs!

    Yeah, buy the tool that vacuums all the air out of the cooling system. Then lets coolant get sucked into that vacuum.

    What about getting the quick disconnect kit for the heater; load it coolant while the heater is down low and easy to get the air out, then close the block valves on each side of the disconnect, disconnect and mount the heater in its normal home, then reconnect it. Very little air should get into the system then. The quick disconnect kit will make it easier to take the cab off too for whatever reason.
    I have more ideas than ambition.
