I was able to buy a snow cab recently for my 444. The seller said it would work off a 200 series case, but should work for mine will little if any modification.

 

Can anyone post real photos of their setups so I can see how much mine is off? My seat does not have enough room to seat down correctly.

 

Thank you all!

Your cab needs to go back more. Hang over a little bit the holes in back angle plate should line up with the bolts on tank plate. That looks like 400 cab to me.

I will loosen the top two bolts on each corner and see if I can adjust it some.

My bad I thought the cab angle was resting on tank plate your last photo shows it not to be the case. It is a 200 cab if you put a 400 cab on 200 you have to put spacer on fenders because the cab back plate goes down that much further. Looks like about only option make spacer maybe a channel iron to fill in gap. If you move cab back to line up with bolts does that give room for seat to go down?

That's where it needs to be to make the seat go where it needs to go, but now I'm running into issues with the doors. The cab is at such an angle and it's going to take heavy modification I feel to make this work.

 

That's why I'm hoping people start posting photos so I can see the stock setup

Your problem is perplexing the 200 and your 444 seat and tank plates should all be same only difference would be fender hight.Not a case seat is it? is it the seat hinge plate bumpers hitting or the back of seat hitting? What I would do is remove the angle plate off cab and set the cab with front bars even with the front of foot rest hopefully the back brackets still setting on fenders. If not you might have to remove  a bolt on each side of rear uprights and angle the bottom more to front.

Pete,

 

Here are a few pics before I completed all my modifications. I ended up lowering the bottom bracket on my front winsheild and placed a larger piece of glass in my windshield. I hated how high the horizontal bar cut into my line of vision. Also, my cab did not come with a lower bracket that bolted behind the gas tank and I cut the bottom of the cab so my seat would fit. It works great. I will post some finished pics later.

Matt,
Thank you for the photos, was your cab for a 400 series or 200 series?


I believe it is the same size as the 400 series. It originally came on my MF14 but I quickly learned that these cabs were built for many makes and it fit perfectly on the 444.
