    Original tractor cab question

    1 series owners with the OTC soft cab...can it be removed as one piece? Is it a pain in the @ss? I'm considering getting a cab for next winter but I don't want it on there except when the blower is attached.

    I have one and although I leave mine on all year and just remove the doors and plastic since I want the sun shade for the summer, it can be removed in one piece with the exception of maybe a few brackets that attach it to the rops. I never tried but should be able to do it in about 30 min or so.

    The main frame can be removed in one section. They are fairly heavy and awkward to handle. Definitely easier if you and a buddy tackle the project.

    Thanks guys.

    Now for a silly question? Does it scratch the paint on the hood? I was thinking of maybe putting down blue masking tape wherever it touches.

    Maybe a little. I haven't looked real close but if worried put some tape on first. Just make sure you use the type that can stay on for a while or you might have issues taking it off

    I leave mine on year around , just remove the windshield , doors ,front and rear panels.

    You can remove it as others have said, one person can but a tad easier with a helper.

    I've seen a few with light markings on them on higher hour tractors. One that I took on trade with 3,000 hours had definite signs of use. However, I think this is more from debris getting trapped in between and rubbing over time. I don't think it was from the cab itself.

    I take it off for the summer, and I have lights, wiper, and rear camera attached. Unplug the main wire supplying the cab power (I use a bullet connector) and then takes removing 8 bolts. 2 off the front frame, 2 off the floor, 2 behind the seat, and 2 on the ROPS. The hardest part is lifting it off the tractor. Takes 2 people. This spring, might try some pulley system so I can take off myself. Also built a cart to store it on and move it around the barn.

    I do the same thing but I mounted a couple of bicycle lifts in the rafters and lift it straight up to the rafters and do it by myself, takes about 30 minutes.
