Check out the side outlet exhaust.  I like the trap door in the back to access the gas tank too.  :D

I'm guessing heat would radiate up from the exhaust to the floorboard, and then up into the cab!  :D

Never had a cab, but if sealed up good wouldn't they fog the windows when in use?  Some are plastic sheets, maybe not so bad, but would think glass like this might be would fog right away? Would at least need a fan to blow on it maybe?  AND, is there enough heat off an engine that can be blown/ducted back to cab and maybe up towards window to work?  I'm thinking most cabs, specially cloth ones don't really seal up that well at bottoms, maybe that keeps them from fogging?  Enlighten me!

He's got a small 12v fan in there.Last pic top right corner below the light.

 

That's a Huge Cab for that tractor lol.Don't like the Exhaust just below the door with that big Gap between the door and running board.That might be a bit dangerous but other than that it's Awesome.

With that much exhaust pipe, one could put a heat exchanger on it, like the old air-cooled VWs, and duct it to the cab.

 

And yes, I agree with Eric.  I would probably route the exhaust pipe discharge somewhere else.  Maybe out the back.??
