    cab 1025r

    Are the cabs for a 1025 r and a 1026 the same? Would a 1026r cab fit a 1025r?

    Any opinions on the Curtis vs Tektite cabs? The Tektite seems to have more glass, which I prefer the look of. Any reliability issues?

    Funny you mention that...... Just viewed a hard sided Tektite in Grand Falls a few days ago. It was a hard sided..... It was mounted on an Orange unit. "If" your a budget minded person, I would stick with a Curtis unit. The Tektite is a well built, sturdy one. Great looking heater in the cab. Lots of glass, Wing window to the rear of the driver to open and close for ventilation rather than the door glass up and down etc. Not sure If I liked it or not. Rear glass as far as I observed didn't remove for a back hoe application (could be wrong), which means the whole cab must come off for that implement.

    Tektite has a separate model backhoe cab.

    Thanks for that.

    Even in just pictures, the Tektite does look nicer.

    I tend to go for quality especially when it looks are a factor. I want to avoid having regrets and second guesses later.

    Darn, this is going to be a tough call. I would prefer to support the local company.

    The Tektite is very well built, bolted directly to the frame, and I have not noticed any play anywhere since installation. For summertime operation the doors come off in a minute and the back glass pops out with three screws.

    For Winter operation it has a great heater and fan inside the cab (yes my tractor needs a bath) which is wired directly into the overhead console.

    The unit is extremely solid bolting directly to the frame. There are also lower panes of glass below the front window giving you a direct view of the front tires which I find very useful.

    View of door opening and close-up of door latch. Note the perimeter frame around the door and the solid construction of the latch.

    And finally the back opening for backhoe operation with the glass removed.

    Do the fender mounted lights on the 1025R have to be moved with the Tektite cab? I notice with the Curtis Cab, they move the fender lights to the outside of the cab which puts the lights sort of on the outside of the fender.

    You can keep them on, I still have mine. You can see one of the side lights in the fourth picture (the one with the door open). I point them out the door, through the glass, towards the ground as side lights. I have an LED mounted up high on each side of the cab, this gives me good forward light and the fender mounted lights give me a pool of light to each side. I still have to add some more lighting to the back.

    With the Curtis Cab you leave fender lights on inside , you just disconnect them when you have doors on.
