    Tektite Cab shipping next week....

    Finally, and just in time for the heart of the winter here.

    I'm having the dealer pickup the 1025, install and return. I told them I would take the snow-thrower off prior to pickup to make it easier to do the installation. I'm also having a 55AMP Generator, Block heater and 180 thermostat installed while they install the cab. I can easily drop the snow-thrower and QH onto a moving dolly but I want to move my FEL which is stored under an outdoor raised deck and tarped for the winter before they pickup the tractor.

    Question is; do I need to also disconnect my front PTO bracket and Shaft from the 1025 in order to mount the H120 FEL back onto the tractor or is there enough clearance for the FEL parking stand?

    I can't help with your question as I only use the FEL + plow or bucket. I have no hitch brackets installed.

    I just wanted to say that you are going to love this cab! I'm on my 3rd winter plowing with a Tektite and I am still amazed with the quality of this unit.

    One suggestion: Get some good quality comfortable ear protection. Being almost all glass it is a bit loud which is just the way it is.

    Yep. Parking stand won't fold. Lucky dog. I want one too. How much you paying?

    Thanks. It's been 6 weeks since I ordered the cab so I'm a little anxious to get it here and installed. I also ordered a set of Microsonic Earplugs from Ultimate Ear with -25dB filters. I work for CBS Sports and I have a set of UE Custom In-Ear Monitors for in-game communications with my iPhone. UE already had my 3D ear impressions on file to make the new earplugs. These are suppose to be really comfortable.

    That is really funny!

    Perhaps the OP can help me out by informing Tektite that his gas cap was missing when he took delivery.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT lose your gas cap!
