I’m on the fence about this. I know it all boils down to personal preference but I wanted to hear some opinions on this. I don’t really have any show machines and I plan on working my stuff. With that said, I really do like the shiny red paint but it’s only original once. Just wondering what the professional Horse wranglers on here have to say?
Snowing/Blizzard like in MA today as most of the east coast. With the forecast calling for snow the remainder of the day into night with temps taking a deep dive south afterward with temps in the sub-teens and single digits overnight for the next week. So will need to complete snow removal duties as soon as it stops. Conditions are pretty nasty compounded by having had recent elbow surgery. Left arm is in a full cast without a winter coat in my snow removal gear arsenal large enough to cover it. On the bright side it's the left elbow so using the PTO and Motion Ctrl levers will not be a problem.
Anyway, purchased a new cab a couple of years ago, procrastinated.... and never installed it. Just manned-up if conditions got to the point where the 310 couldn't push the snow. But think the current situation behooves me to install it. Am interested to get an idea of time required to perform the initial cab install. The tractor is a 1993 520H.
I do have a helper (non-mechanically inclined wife) to assist. Think I read a post in the past it takes anywhere from 4-8 hours without running into the inevitable issues typical with install projects. Is this time frame correct?
P3x in Snowy MA
NOS, Original Tractor Co snow cab
Original Tractor Cab P650CC01
*NOTE: as far as I can tell, the plastic white top is all that is missing
Otherwise, the pieces are in good shape, never used - just dirty from sitting. The instructions and unopened original hardware also included. Per the instructions this model is for 1990 and up 500 series tractors, although likely will fit / adapt to others somewhat easily.
I bought this with my 520h from the original owner who advised it was never used and from the condition and packaging that appears to be the case. I will not use it so I am looking to give a good home. As a side note - the tractor only has 256 hours on it and also has a powered leaf / grass bagger unit (which is not something I see often as far as attachments). But up for sale here is the NOS snow cab and hardware only
