I understand people thinking the hydracutter I posted was overpriced, but this is ridiculous.  He'll be very lucky to get half of what he's asking.

It seems high but look where it is. With the weather that MN gets they maybe willing to pay more. Good Luck, Rick

I've never seen one sell anywhere for more than $500 even in excellent shape.  Even that is a stretch.

This is interesting and suprising to me...when I had my Ingersoll 3016PS, I shopped a bit for attachments and accessories, but they were much more pricey than I was used to in the Simplicity world. 

 

Now, that cab is quite a bit more cab than the soft ones I'm used to seeing in the $250-400 range.  Anything Simplicity with glass and steel top/front/back, is ALWAYS over a grand. The last Cozy (full, hard cab) I saw for a Simplicity was fair to say the least, and fetched $1500.

I guess my point is...I'm going to start shopping for an Ingersoll cab like this, and fitting it to one of my machines!

It would sell at that price around here if it was November or December. And that is 15 miles away from me.

In 2012, I got  price list from Eastman Industries.

MSRP for a new cab was $1087.

New cabs are plastic.  Hard cabs no longer made for several years.  If you find one at a decent price, be ready to buy it as they usually sell quickly.  People don't sell them separated from their tractor very often as they remember what it's like to blow snow without.  Paid $350 for mine in good shape with good plastic windows and canvas doors.

I don't remember who made them, but they were made for other brands also.  I've seen one very similar for Cub Cadets but the windshield is hinged on theirs.  Very nice.

These are popular in my area. I have two and hope to install them on an Ford LGT125 and a Bolens 1250. Good Luck, Rick
