I thought the cab on the M602 was more interesting. The cab on the New Holland combine reminded me of the cab on a New Holland 914 Swather or Mo-Co I have. But the neighbor kids fixed all the glass in the swather with a B-B Gun. (Duh, you have to catch them in the act.) Anybody need any parts from a Pherd 256 diesel with a window in the block?

There seems to be so much interest in the M602 Cab that i'll fill in the story. My Dad had a welder,torch,grinder,and an electric drill and built about everything he could especially when they had no money. We had a couple Heat-Housers over the years but he built 4 cabs starting with a open back cab on a Allis WD in the late 50's. It was pretty crude with paned house windows in front & sides.
He Built a Cab on a Gleaner E combine that looked about like a factory cab and then a U302 MM with a Roomy cab that was as wide as the outside of the fenders.Since it was so big he used Plexiglas for windows and you could not see thru it plus what ever heat came from the engine was gone.
This 602Cab is maybe tall enough for a 6 ft person to stand up(not me at6'4")but I think it is narrow because he installed actual safety glass windows that open. At least a person does not bump your head getting in. Even without floor mats it is somewhat comfortable with engine-gear-body and sun heat without a heater. All of his cabs were made heavy enough to be roll cages plus this one the top above the windows can lift off on the occasion the hydralics need attention or other maintenance.

We sold the tractor in 2000 on a farm auction for about $750.00 including the Duals and the guy that bought it left it parked outside by a building for 10 years without anything on the stak.(Cab protected the gages&interior) It was a good thing because all his restored-nice tractors
inside burned up with a heat lamp fire. I bought it back(about the same amount) and had planned on discarding the cab or trying to modify it to look like a factory cab since it is kind of eye sore.
I been moving implements & buildings over the road this fall& winter and could not be prouder of the Ole Man and his odd looking cab.It needs some TLC and I would like to make it look more "factory" but it does have some character that you are not going to see anywhere else. I appreciate you folk saying "interesting" instead of what you could say as "it is what it is"

I honestly admire the ingenuity of your dad and the farmer designed ideas people make. My dad was the same with building things. Once they bought one of the Stanhoist wagon hoists in the late 50s that they used to have to pull around the yard as they didnt have wheels on it, and my dad made some brackets with hubs and wheels, put a tongue on it and then they could pull it down the road to the other farms. Your cab is unique...and to me something to be proud of. :)
