I found a cab ... its not for a bolens its a john deere but for the price i will make it work around here prices are just crazy for stuff i found this on kijiji by Roslyn for a Whopping $120 obo so i could not pass it up and its GREAT shape for canadian winters normally the cabs are rusted all to heck and the windows are smashed and the doors are gone this one has some minor stuff gone such as cracked plastic on the side windows and the rear window is gone but that does not matter i think the cab has not been used much or it has been washed the story i got from the p/o "i took it off my 314 because there was a fuel problem and i had the tractor apart so i decided to paint the tractor and now i dont want to scratch the fenders so here it is up for sale" so i bought it for $100 got it home washed it up and it came out real nice now comes the task of making mounts and body panels to mount to my bolens

Like you said, make it work. I'd imagine prices will only rise for these as temps start to drop. I wanted a Bolens type also but I won't complain about the cab I got, for the mini price I payed. :thumbs:

Looks like you got a good deal. The big question is are you going to be able to deal with a couple of deere on the side of your Bolens? :confuse:

Bolens used red, white and yellow for their cabs, so maybe just repaint the green part.

I have a whole bunch of soft cab doors in all three colors. Some say Bolens, others have the Husky dog on them.

You wouldnt happen to have pics o' them red doors would ya? I'm wondering if the hinge and latch areas are same as the craftsman type I have..? :confuse:
