Sunstar snow cab on a Sovereign?? Help?

Recommended Posts

tripleguy
Anyone mod a Sunstar cab to fit a Sovereign? I'd like to hear from someone who has done this before as it may save me some time or at least trial and error fitting. What was needed to be done to get this cab to fit? Looks like at the least, it's too high in front. Thank you!

It depends upon your fab skills. It may be a bit of work, but if it keeps the snow and wind off it may be worth the effort. There are a lot of potential mounting points on the rear of the Sovereign. Raise the back and move it back and it may work out just fine. If it is a hard cab I think the effort woudl be worth it. Otherwise you should be able to sell the Sunstar cab and get a correct Sovereign cab for a similar dollar amount. Keep in mind, cabs are hard to come by, and harder at a reasonable price.

What kind of cab is it? If it is a soft cab it should be easy enough to make a new frame for it. If you can weld and bend pipe thinwall conduit works nicely. If not some aluminum angle bolted together is easy to work with. Just hang the doors and curtains on the new frame.

Thanks fellas. I'm in WI but think I might have it sold. The cab is in very nice shape - it would be a shame to start cutting on it. Think I'll part ways with it and keep looking for a proper one.

Bill there is one near Racine on CL that seems a great price but older style fiberglass not plastic top. I sold my older style 7000/7100 cab a couple weeks back for $525 so they do go for a premium this time of year. I saw a few this summer for $100 to $200.. i should have bought them and held on to them until winter. FYI I think for about $800 you can order all the parts from OTC brand new.. but could be wrong.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
