Looking for a year round cab to fit a JD 2440. Heater/air. What fits? Came across a cab off a 4520 will it fit? What about a cab off 10,20,30 series? Hard to find unless I have made, then very expensive! Any suggestions??

Thanks for any input,
Mike

Those cabs are like putting a bucket over your head and banging on it with a stick.

I'd upgrade to a newer one with a sound gard body.

Thanks for all the replys. Guess I will look around for a tractor with a cab and avoid all the head aches!

If I were you I'd trade the 2440 for a much quieter/nicer JD 50/55 series utility tractor with a SGB.

It's been many years since I sold & installed Hiniker & Y-A-R cabs but none of the ones I was around had any type of built in floorboard just square tubing frame. Both JD & IHC utilized tractor floorboard plus filler plates. I never sold/installed a cab on a JD utility so I have no experience on the cab size for a JD utility tractor.

Forgot. Cozy Cab made more of them than Year round or Hiniker.

The cab off of a JD 4520 is way too big. The one you need would only have been used on the JD utility tractors not the row crop ones. The cab you would need is an open bottom one. It does not have a full floor in it. The cab has to fit around the transmission hump so to speak. The correct one for it would be pretty rare. I have only seen Hinker cabs on the smaller JD utilities and they did not have AC. Year-Round made cabs that would fit the 2840 but I never seen one on the small frame utility.

I have attached pictures of one of them. Look at how low the cab sets on the tractor. This is what makes mounting it so hard.

Have you really thought this through???? That JD 2440 is a pretty small tractor to put a cab with AC on. The compressor will pull 5-8 hp when it kicks in. Also the transmission housing gets very warm on these tractors when you work them much in the summer. It would make the odds of the AC keeping up very small.

I think you would be better off selling your JD 2440 and buying a tractor with a factory cab on it. You will have a boat load of money in a real odd ball tractor. Plus I am not sure the AC will perform well.

JD Seller, the Hiniker cab in your photo is most definitely the same cab that was used on the 4520. I worked in R and D at Hiniker and we started with the same basic cab no matter what the make or model.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes that is the same cab, the only difference was the opening on the cowl and a few other little things that take TONS of time. But yes, it has the same dimensions as a "normal" Hiniker cab.

I only know when we ordered them for the utility tractors they told me they where a different cab. Maybe it is the height of the side posts or something but the Year Round had a very different order code. Then you had the attaching bundle. This bundle had the floor pans and filler plates in it.

We usually where putting them on JD 2840 and JD 2940. Put a few on JD 4020s as well. I have put a Cozy Cab one on a JD 2755.

All of the ones we did only had heat not AC. I am not sure how you would get the AC compressor mounted on a JD 2440. If you had a loader on it I don't think you would have room for the compressor.

Both the Year-around and the Hiniker were made in Mankato Mn. I worked in research and development for Hiniker. They are very similar and both start out with a basic cab for every tractor make and model. The only thing different is the mounts and floor plates and cowl filler plates. Hiniker never sold many mounts for the 2440 so I doubt you will find a used set. I would bet year around did not either. So go ahead and buy the year around from the 4520 then hang it from a shed rafter or tree limb and take the fenders off your 2440. drive the tractor under the hanging cab and let it down into position. Now build some mounts out of tubing from axle housing up to hinge point on back of cab. then build some mounts from tractor frame rails up to front mounting points on cab which is at front corners under doors. Now take some cardboard and make patterns of some floor plates and filler plates that you need around cowl. Take your patterns to a fab. shop and have them make the plates. This may sound overwhelming to you but you can do it.

Anything can be made to fit, but it may not be functional or appealing to the eye.
