Simplicity Soft Cab

Recommended Posts

KSever
Just picked up a soft cab for my 717. But I am in need of the installation directions. Was looking for the part number and maybe I can find the manual on the Simplicity site or if someone has the directions they might be able to email me I would appreciate it. Thanks, Kris

Can't help with instructions, but how about a picture: This is one that Chris Geise provided long, long ago. He's an engineer at Original Cab Company, the company that made them... The foot-draggin' Clubhouse Custodian...

It looks like the front is solidly mounted to the engine frame. The back must have a pivot in it to alow for the pivoting rear end of the tractor. Otherwise the cab would flex. Maybe it doesn't bother it anyway.

Just an update. I emailed Original Tractor Cabs (one of our sponsors) and asked if they had the installation directions for this 717 cab. They promptly emailed me back and said yes they do and would gladly mail them out to me no charge. I had the direction booklet within 5 days of the email. What a great sponsor.

I had the same great response from the Original Cab Co. several months ago. I have not yet assembled the cab on my tractor, but I have the same question LloydBoy stated: The cab is solidly mounted to both the front and rear sections of the tractor. thus, the cab will flex if the tractor twists. I suspect that this will not be a big problem, as most driveways are relatively flat. It will be interesting to see how it works when installed! Tom

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
