Picked up an OEM Sears hard top, soft sided cab yesterday. Vinyl doors as well as front and back with a fiberglass roof. Its in good shape just needs to be cleaned. Today I added two 30w work lights, as well as my twin beacon light bar. Looks pretty cool and sure is bright!

Very nice cab. Does all that lighting put a bad load on the GT electrical system?

I like it ! Alone with DTDave, I'm wondering about the draw on the system, especially a motor driven beacon ? Give us some feedback after a few sessions to let us know. Meantime do you have a number for the work-lights from NAPA?
Thanks for sharing :thumbs:

Draw seems to be OKAY for now. The tractor doesnt have headlights, and the work lamps are essentially the same draw as headlights. The bar is whats extra. I plan on running the tractor at 3/4 throttle or higher with both lights on. Its snowblowing so throttle will be high as it is.. hopefully that helps charge it.

Hey Hugh, you might want to reinforce that fiberglass roof, lest that hazard light comes crashing through someday! LOL

I think your going to really like your cab. One suggestion though, don't seal the cab up too tight or you will have problems with the windows fogging. I found out the hard way. :(
