Just got down getting the cab mounted and all the lights and such rewired. Now just need the snow to see how this 2 stage blower works. There is a couple other things that needs done to the cab before i paint it but it will be used this year as is. The cab was from a jd 317 and with a few new brackets i made it fit right on and the best thing is i can take it off and put the other brakets and window in and put it back on a jd.

Looking good there Bob. :thumbs:

I had a chance to use the 20D with the soft cab on it the other day in a chilly breeze, and I was pleasantly surprised at how 'comfy' I was. I'll bet that the hard cab is even better
