Has anyone received any updates on if/when these may be coming out? We recently moved, and I have a much larger driveway so snow removal with my open-station 2320 is not as much fun as it used to be. I'd like to stay in the 2xxx family if possible, so a factory cab in that series would be really nice.
thanks in advance for replies.

I have been in direct contact with Mauser-Cab on this subject a number of times. Unfortunately they are not currently selling, or planning to sell these cabs as an aftermarket product. John Deere is also not selling these cabs as an after-sale add-on. It is my understanding that the cabs can only be purchased from JD when ordering a 2036R and the tractor will come from the factory with the cab installed. No one has offered any explanation as to the reasoning behind this. I suspect it has to do with marketing strategy for the entire line of compacts. I even went as far as to contact a JD dealer in the UK to see if they can get me a cab and ship it to the US, but alas, they cannot purchase cabs from either JD or Mauser-Cab...

Your only hope is to purchase an aftermarket cab, or go to Europe and purchase a 2036R-Cab Tractor and have it shipped over to the US. I'm sure you would be the first and only Gen 2 2-series in the US with a Mauser-Cab installed, minus of course the factory built 2036Rs that JD produces in Augusta Georgia and have not yet shipped out to Europe.

I bet there are some 2036Rs with cabs in these photos of the Augusta Georgia plant.......lol...

Best of luck!

Sincerely

I thought there were some people that post here that are "in the know" that said it was going to happen? I really would like to know if they are going to do this as I want to upgrade, but may look elsewhere because I am not sure whether I want to step up to the 3 series to get a cab, both from a size/weight and $$ standpoint....

I think the lack of a small frame tractor with an integrated factory cab reflects poor market research on behalf of JD. You talk to Kubota dealers about a B2650 cab and you basically get put in a line for stock. They sell as fast as they can get them locally.

Something along the lines of a 2025r with the motor from the 3025 and an integrated factory cab would sell like hotcakes. People will pay an extra 6-8k for a good cab on a small tractor because there are lots of times where a big tractor is not usable, feasible, or affordable.

My dealer chain said they cannot keep a mauser cab in stock, why they have not picked up on the trend is beyond me. You could even tier it and have standard and deluxe cabs with A/C included in the premium and heat only on the standard.

As per my communication with Mauser-Cab in Europe, the 2025 will have a JD Mauser-Cab available in the near future.

Mauser Cab for 2018 2025R

All these tractors just waiting for some proud new owner to rush them home and get them into a garage so they never spend time sitting in the rain. :)

Marketing or not! It is a real mystery why the US 1 and 2 Series compact tractors don't have a factory cab option!:banghead:

Since I’m in sales, I blame this on marketing:laugh: Marketing always “knows better” than sales or what the customers actually want! I’m sure the reason we do not have a 2 series cab option is due to internal politics at JD and NO other logical reason.

Well those rascals are smart, and it is working.
I have a perfectly good 2032R that is going bye bye as soon as a 3039 arrives.
The ONLY reason to trade is to get the cab.

Gotta love the high resale value and 0% interest!

I think it is exactly that - marketing. The 3 series with a cab isn’t all that much larger than the new 2 series so they figure people will just go with that if they want a cab.

Mrs. C and I were talking yesterday. She actually brought up tractors and such. She said it would be neat if I had a backhoe for our projects around the house. So I went on the speal that if I ever did get a backhoe it would be a 3 series so I had a cab for winter. Then I would have to have a dedicated mowing machine like an x7xx diesel.

She then mentioned a wagon for picking up sticks and stuff. I said that is where a Gator comes in.

By the time we were done, adding up in my head as we went, we were up to around $80k......not going to happen.....

And the 1 series is marketed as a price point tractor. Most folks willing to drop 7-8000 on a cab are probably looking at larger series tractors.

She wants something, or did something.
Women don't talk that way, unless they want something or did something.

I don't think you have ever seen what commercial snow guys are willing to spend on sidewalk machines that fit in the spaces they need them to go in.

A 1025 with a factory integrated cab and more robust components would sell.

Deere is marketing a "factory" cab for the 1 Series. It may be a Mauser.

Most certainly.
But would the quantity justify it? From the outside looking in, we all say yes, but Deere knows their business better than we do.
