Looking for advice/leads on obtaining all weather cab for IH 706?

Can anyone provide pros/cons on adding all weather cab?

Is there a specific manufacturer or model number to look for?

I contacted him and he did not want to sell (only thru ebay). I asked him what he wanted and told him I would buy and pick up either New Years day or saturday following. Didn't want to sell outside of ebay.

I have an Excell cab on my 706 - very simular to Hiniker. This past summer I went thru all the seals and put new headliner and wiring, lights, and tightened up the latches. I also installed a small LP ice shack heater in a sturdy bracket just to the right of the shifters. With that going I can get it 80 degrees in there in no time. I had to add a small fan to keep the windows from fogging but it works great. I gave $100 for the cab at the salvege yard, they had several.

Hi Doug,

I'm very interested in what you did. Got any pictures? Did you have much to retrofit? Is there a model of the Excell cab. I like the price tag? (only because I like tinkering and building vs buying new) I can call around a few of the junk yards and see what I can come up with. (i'm in Green Bay, WI, so I don't exactly want to drive to Iowa; but if the winter continues, it's not out of the question!!!)

Here's a picture of the tractor....I posted it on the tractor photo page.

http://www.tractorshed.com/cgi-bin/gallery/photo_pic.cgi?pic=http;//www.tractorshed.com/gallery/tphotos/a122744.jpg&firstrec=1&lastrec=16&Parameter=&mode=All&what=tphotos

Don't have a model number but there might be a serial number on it. The cab fit the tractor first time, I don't think one there was bolt that didn't line up. I modified the floor board with a filler piece to make it level and then carpeted it (probably not my best idea now that it is all wet and muddy but it sure looked great new). The guy I got it from has at least 2 more. I was told by an old IH delaer that this was the last aftermarket cab IH dealer installed before the started offering it as a factory option.

Email me for more info and pics.

Doug,

This is very nice; Just like what I'm looking for. Can you provide phone number that I can call and discuss more. I would even like to talk to the guy who may have two more to see what price and shape they are in.

What part of Iowa are you located in?

thanks,
Ron rsnyder@new.rr.com

I think that this info came from this site, as Gene in MO says, we had these on tractors when i grew up (60"s & 70"s), and they were pretty good. Course in that time frame they all had International on them. The 560 had one with a top cover that was great in both rain & snow.

I don't know where you are but I pulled a complete year a round off my 856 you could get reasonable. I'm in western Nebraska.

I've seen JD 4010's with a cab from a MF 1105, 1135 etc; Fit good and looked good, no doubt some fitting to do but these are a good cab, good air and heater,if you could seal up the floor/door and dash area would make a good mix.

I know you are wanting a cab, but we did quite well for 30+ years with a "winter front" or some folks call the "Heat housers" Basically canvas surrounding the drivers station with a plastic windscreen. Sure did feel good those cold fall days when we would moldboard plow for days on end. The canvas could be rolled back from around the engine area if you got too warm, but otherwise that warm engine heat kept you real toasty. Those are still available new I think. Fairly easy to take on and off.

Yes. The hood on an 826 is higher so you'll need to extend the filler panel above the hood on whatever cab you get, if it's not adjustable.

Again, if it's not a Hiniker or a Year-A-Round, I really don't think you'll want it.

I should've asked earlier, but are you talking about fully enclosed cabs, or "windbreaker," "heat houser," so-called "all weather cabs" that are just a canvas over the engine, and a windshield with no roof?

yes, I should clarify;

I'm talking about a fully enclosed cab. Eventually I will retrofit with AC.

Currently working with a heater housing (not sure if what I got is right for the IH 706 as the canvas is oval shaped, and the plastic shield is rectangular.

None of the cabs from that era are particularly "all weather" or "user friendly." You need to be a bit of an acrobat to get in and out. They're loud and leaky even with good interiors and weatherstripping. But, they're better than nothing.

I suspect your next question will be, "Well, can I put a more modern cab on my 706?" The answer to that is no. There is no such thing as a more modern cab. See, by the time tight, comfortable, quiet cabs came along, they were integral parts of the tractors. No aftermarket ever developed for older tractors, because the idea was if you wanted a good cab, you bought a newer tractor. The cab and operator's platform were one unit, unlike the 706 era where a cab was a box that fit over the existing operator's platform. The operator's platform was moved forward on the tractor for a better view, and the fuel tank was moved behind the operator.

While a crafty fabricator could probably fit one of these newer cabs to a 706 with a LOT of work, I suspect you want something to plow snow and/or feed animals with NOW, not 3-4 years down the line.

Your best bets are Hiniker or Year-A-Round cabs. These are aftermarket "universal" cabs that were pretty good for the time. You ought to be able to find a cab in a salvage yard, and they periodically come up for sale. If you can find one with all the windows and interior intact, that would be the one to snatch. The padding and upholstery will soak up a lot of the noise.
Weatherstripping is easy to replace. If you need to put in windows, make sure you use heavy tempered glass so that if it breaks, it shatters into tiny pieces instead of large artery-slicing knives.

would all weather cabs off of an IH 826 fit (without a tremendous amount of modification)?

Noisy--but keep the wind off in the winter.
