    Lightbulb cold air in x728 w/cab

    Just got a new x728 w/soft cab. does anyone have any info on stop the cold air flow (air being drawn into radiator thru cab). On my old 445 I had a reverse air flow fan blade that blew the warm air thru the radiator and into the cab. I am considering replacing the factory fan with an electric one the I can reverse in the winter. Any input please.

    Welcome to DT.

    Why not just get a simple after market heater to tie into your cooling system? I'm assuming that you have a Curtis cab, and I know they offer a heater for a stiff price; but lower cost ones can be had from J.C. Whitney and other outlets.

    We love pictures here by the way.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    On another forum a couple of members took and blocked off the screens and had no problem with it over heating and that took care of it sucking in the cold air.

    Unhappy soft cab

    Unfortunately I bought the John Deere soft cab. No way to stop cold air flow. Even putting in a heater would not stop the cold draft caused by the fan drawing in air to the motor.

    Here's a pic of what I'm talking about. This pic was taken on a X7XX with a soft cab.
