I had to put it on the HT20D. I would have preferred the HDT1000 since it's easier to start in cold weather, but it lacks some mounting holes on the side of the dash tower.

It took a lot longer than it should have, but without a manual/instructions I did some things out of order.

That meant that I had to back up and re-do some steps a time or two. Sort of a 3 steps forward 2 steps back sort of progress :D :D

Anyway here it is, ready for the snow this year.

Looks like you will be nice and dry this winter :thumbs:

:ditto:
I would at least recommend putting a tarp over them if you have to keep them in the elements.
Having stuff outside really takes a toll on equipment.......

Looks great! My cab goes on next Saturday, along with the blower. Weather is too nice tomorrow, I already have my tee time. Is this your first year with the cab? You will love it. I'm worried that exhaust is going to melt your vinyl though.

Nice looking cab there OldBuzzard. I know where one is just like yours is and was wondering if it could be put on my SS 12 Suburban.

From the looks of all the tractors in the back ground you should be able to just leave the cab on there all year round. I have a designated snow mover and it saves a lot of work changing back and forth. Yours is a nice looking setup.

I'm jealous, it looks great on there!

(looks nothing like a washing machine drip pan, either)
