In the spring of 2009 I found a 3 sided MTD snow cab on craigslist. It was new in the box for $35. I couldn't pass this up as it made a good starting point for a cab project.
Since my ford is not built like the newer tractors the cab was made to fit it didn't enclose the foot wells very well. Also being 3 sided it needed a back. As can be seen in these pictures:
Also the back of the ford is different than a newer tractor so I decided to mount the cab to the sleeve hitch. The lift bar that goes to the lift cylinder is removed and the hitch it tied to the frame of the tractor to keep it in place.
The footwells are made from 1/2 plywood, and the back is made from 1/4 hard board with a vinyl window.
The left side has a door to make it easier to get in and out.

That is a great way to take a bargain and make it nice. Good looking rig. Nice work on the foot areas.
