I agree with you, 495man, they were nearly all built by independant businesses and the truth is , they built these very same cabs for nearly every make of tractor, and not just MFs. So they had big problems getting everything to fit. In the case of the MF cab ....Loader technology was not prepared in 1965 for the fitment of cabs...It was not until 1970 that tha loader was moved forwards about 6 inches to accomodate the cab, So the cab maker/designer had to incorporate this into their plans. Another point to remember was when the sun came out no-one wanted a cab so they all had to be made with quick detach panels. Mostly the large arable farms in England fitted cabs to get more days work out of their tractor drivers! We only needed cabs in Ireland to keep us dry until we got home from the pub or when making hay and the usual Haymaker shower appeared!!! Sam

I guess in this area of Canada, cabs were not really common on those era of tractors, no safety legislation etc, so we didn't really see that many cabbed tractors until they were "factory"
There must of been many, many more short line cab and loader brands in Europe as I doubt I could list more than 6 of each loader and cab companies that were commonly seen here.
I plowed snow and run snowblower open station tractors, I can certainly appreciate having a cab, but would hate it in the summer. I can't recall ever seeing a quick detach style cab here.
