    Tractor cab dolly

    When I bought my original tractor cab I was expecting it to be a little more ridged. I thought if I take this off and put it on season after season it will never last. So I took some measurements of the cab sitting on the tractor and decided to make a stand that would support it during the off season and also make it easier to store since it would be mobile. I had the wheels so it was fairly cheap to make. Maybe 30.00 dollars, and this is what I came up with and I must say it works very well.

    ...an invisible cab dolly? Sounds like a great idea, but no picture shows up.

    Tractor cab dolly

    When I got my original tractor cab I thought it would be a lot more ridgid. I knew if I take this off and put it back on season after season it will never last so I took some measurements of the cab sitting on the tractor and this is what I came up with. I must say that it supports the cab very well and makes it very easy to store in the off season since I can move it around if needed. I had the wheels already so it was very inexpensive to make. Maybe 30.00 in all.

    Looks good and provides a practical storage solution. I can't tell you how many for sale ads I have looked at over the years where in the pictures the cab was lying in a heap in the corner of a garage, barn, etc., which is always discouraging about it's overall condition.

    Jerry, please start only one thread per topic, make it very confusing having multiple threads in different forums on the same thing.

    Mine has been sitting on its roof all summer in an unused corner of the garage but I think I would rather see it hanging from the ceiling a little less likely to be damaged
