Speaking of cabs...?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that a lot of hot air is exhausted out the front of the Big Ten and B-12 from cooling the motor. Has anyone ever toyed with the idea of ducting that warm air into the cab to keep the feet warm. I can keep everything warm but my blame feet when working in the extreme cold of Kentucky :-). It seems to me that as long as it was at least cool weather that it wouldn't affect the cooling of the motor, but might pay big dividends for the driver.

Dale, ;)I think you could make it work. Useing a mini heat exchanger you could draw the air from back by you if worried about the fumes. And unless driving constantly in reverse, your getting those fumes anyway.

The Case/Ingersol have the engine in backwards and blows all the hot air towards the driver. Just put the engine in backwards, you will get lots of hot air plus and 3 speeds in reverse, but only 1 speed forward, but you will be warm.
