I have two steel cabs that I got from an Ariens guy. Neither are that nice. Good Luck, Rick

Those steel cabs are cool, but they look heavy.  Anyone know roughly what they weigh?  I was just wondering.  I don't get enough snow in southern OH to justify one.  I can deal with a little snow on me a few times a year. :D

I didn't see any price on the clist ad. I thought clist required a price.

The seller in that ad is someone who deals in lots of GT's, that was listed for sale two weeks ago at $1,800 in a different location.

got a use for them? Could the 2 be combined into one good unit?   Not that I'm anywhere close enough to you to do anything about them if  you were interested in sending them down the road haha

Here's a new link with more picture and a new lower price of $1650. Mine is very heavy no need for wheel weights. LOL I have my cab completely stripped down working on restoring it. As I put the cab back together I'm going to try and get a rough idea of the total weight. Unfortunately we are in the middle of a big move and everything is in storage.

I've got uses for them. They were made by Curtis and are steel frame with glass windshields. The sides and back are side curtains. They are much narrower than the one above. but they are still protection during a storm. It took several years to find them. One will go on a Ford LGT 125 and the other on a Simplicity. The funny thing about the design of these is they are designed to tip back on hinges to allow access to under the hood. I'm hoping to find a way to get engine heat safely into the cab. Good Luck, Rick

Years ago, I had been thinking about making cabs. The best idea was to use 1/2" EMT and use a bender to make the frame. Make the roof from sheet metal, and the sides from plexiglas.
