    Open Station

    I was feeding a round bale to my cows last night....-10 degF, with a -45 deg wind chill. I found that my Open Station 4720 was...well...open. I was definately "refreshed" when I came in.

    I lasted 2 years on my open station 3720.... Then 2 more in a cabbed 3720 before I upgraded to a cabbed 4720.

    My definition of cold & windy in the tractor is when the heater is blowing cold air.

    Adding a cab

    I was on the Green Dealer site and looked for a cab for my 3005, The GD guys had one.
    Original Tractor Cab Hard Top Cab Enclosure for John Deere 790HT and 3005E
    It has the hard top yet the sides etc are softer material. I was wondering if anyone has experience with these type cabs and are they worth a dam? It costs about $725 but with shipping will get me close to $1000. I'd have to figure out a heater system to heat the cab. The 790 I had at work had a Curtis Cab (expensive) and an electric heater. It worked fairly good at keeping the cab from fogging up. Open cab was fun for awhile but that novelty has worn off this winter. During the summer I like the open cab so this removable system seems practical but IF it is junk it's worthless. Any inputs would be appreciated.

    I have a hard enough time keeping from bending the vertical exhaust on branches. Besides the cold and heat there are biting and stinging insects. Not sure how much machinery storage and how many tractors a cabbed one would come in and then at what size class. They are pretty much flat platform aren't they?

    I'm thinking in a year or 2 of getting some type of 5xxxM with a nice cab. I really like the 4720, and it will always be my favorite for precision loader work, and zipping around in the pastures. I like not having a cab for about 8 moths of the year.
    I would hate the thought of tracking mud and manure in a nice cab, but in the dead of winter its all frozen.

    My tractor doesnt get used too much in the winter and I went with an open station. I really enjoy being in the outdoors and to date do not regret not getting a cab. Do you guys with cabs ever regret having the cab when its a nice spring day? Just wondering.

    I too would like some feedback. I just suit up in the snowmachine gear and a cheap pair of goggles if it is windy.

    I have never, ever thought "I wish I was outside" when in the cab.

    Oh come on now Everyone knows, the open stations are more of a "chic magnet"
