I thought I would share this project with everyone . I could not afford a cab when I got my new jd 1050 many years ago. So I gambled and bought some 1/8 inch metal and just did trial and error making it.
I knew I did not want a square box on that nice brand new tractor. I looked at pics of new cabs and designed it to look similar to their shapes. I used the thicker metal to eliminate the rattling during high rpms of the little diesel engine. I also built the rear blade , the front blade , the rear landscape rake except for the spring teeth. I also modified a loader off a jd 950 to fit on it and I made the jd 666 snowblower adapt to the loader arms. I was pleased how the end cab looked and it saved me a few thousand dollars.
