Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket wiper motor and arm for curtis cab x595. The x595 is all all wired and ready to go. I picked up the tractor at an auction for a school. Cleaned up nice.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Links to motors would also be appreciated.


Thank you

Cant the images in your post. Bummer. Thank you though. I'll get my measurements tomorrow. Hopefully it, or one of the other suggestions made will. I'm unfortunately not set up to fabricate much now. So needs to be as close to original as possible. Thank you again to all

The best way to solve your Motor Problem is to measure where it goes then do a search thru tons of motors here of all kinds of prices. The include shaft size, length, dimensions, wiper arm lengths (a lot are adjustable) ect. Most universal wiper motors are pretty much the same except the cost of them! Look around on this search bet there are 20 or more that will fit. https://www.google.com/search?q=windshield+wiper+motors&hl=en&authuser=0&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwjC4OzApsvfAhVOWX0KHXvAAIsQsxgILQ&biw=1345&bih=728&dpr=0.95

I'm not having any trouble opening them. Below is the dimensional photo:

I redid all the velcro, wire wheeled the cab in a few spots and threw some paint on it. They said it was sitting since 2015. Has 910hrs hours. I got it for the price most guys are selling the 445's for on craigslist. Even cheaper in some cases. I'm extremely happy how well its cleaned up.

We can see where the wiper motor mounts, in the glass, much better in the "before" photo.

I'd also suggest an adjustable wiper arm, such as these:

SDG 413111S1 Sea Dog Adjustable Wiper Arms - Wipers & Motors

https://www.amazon.com/AFI-33012A-Stainless-Adjustable-Windshield/dp/B000NI5C02/ref=asc_df_B000NI5C02/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312094677816&hvpos=1o23&hvnetw=g&hvrand=508758587114070607&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9020162&hvtargid=pla-571504404895&psc=1

You can adjust both the length and an offset. This was real handy on my Cozy Cab. I was able to move up to 22" wiper blade from the 16" supplied. It wipes much more of the glass area now. Here is the thread I authored in that regard:

https://www.greentractortalk.com/forums/sub-compact-utility-tractors-scut/143882-windshield-wiper-improvement.html

You may want to enhance your wiper system further by adding a intermittent wipe/mist controller/switch:

Also, in the WFM post I provided a link to earlier, the link to the wiper motor at Mill's Supply has more dimension specifications. Such as the the diameter and length of the rotating shaft mounting collar.

I have what me be a stupid question to some. Is one hole for mounting the too? It's not bolted to the frame also? I assume the the bigger hole is where the blade shaft is mounted.

I knew you could do it! Nice drawings too! Next hard thing is setting the Sweep Angle but most are preset and will work as is. Had to re/set the ones on my Power Wagons to get them right but they have directions for that. You can buy a "Chevy Wiper Switch" off ebay to control them with set up for 2 speeds and park. That way when you shut them off they always go back to the same pre/set place.https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Universal-Street-Hot-Rod-Windshield-Wiper-Motor-Switch-w-Knob-2-Speed-GM/311171719566?epid=658163433&hash=item487347a18e:g:szYAAOSwv1RUY994:rk:4:pf:0

I only wish I organized enough to draw like that. Lmao The drawings are from a curtis cab install instructions for a Polaris ranger. It looks identical to mine. Thank you all again! Awesome forum who guys who like to tinker and need a little help!
