I have a cozy cab from an HT20 on my 1250.  I have to remove the left pedal in order to mount it.  We also had to redo the front sheet metal on the right side on the bottom to clear the travel pedal.  Attached are some pics comparing the cab on my 1250 and my dads HT20.  Both cabs are two pin hinges.

On my cab only the top two corners of the glass are rounded. Would you be able to measure the inside dimensions of your frame and take a few pics for me?

Inside foot pedal area and dash area. That's where my problems are. What's your inside square tube dimension?
Thanks.

Here are some pics as we were fabbing sheet metal to make it fit my 1250.  I'll get the measurement later today.

I had noticed that. I can't say I am a big fan of the look of that style of cab, I find the tapered back style front more appealing.

The cab that came on my ht20d is a little different than these. My doors open from the front. Is that common ?

Just for future reference, how long (front to back) is the top on these cabs?

I've whacked my head on the windshield after catching a stump or hitting the snow pile a little too hard.  Usually it's if I'm wearing a baseball cap and the brim hits.  Having the other designed cab gives a little more room. 

 

If you notice on my dad's cab, someone extended the top to give a little more head room as well.  I'm 6'0 but don't have an issue with hitting the top of my cab. His door hinges are also outside while mine are inside the cab.
