    Cab enclosure for JCB 214 TLB, After digging perk test holes in 20 deg. and 20 mph winds
    exposed location I decided to build wind break panels. The tractor came with front glass which took care of the front exposure wind. For the rest of the panels I used inexpensive vinyl from a amish fabric store at about $3 a yard. I welded up frames of 3/4" square steel tubing to fit the openings on the OROPS, using the tractor frame as a welding jig, with a "washers" spacing for clearnce. Having tried serveral methods of attaching the vinyl, I found that the simplest was to glue 3/8 thick wood strips to the inside of the metal frame(removed from the machine with lift off hinges,onto a work surface) with polyurathane glue. At this point the frame can be painted. Next with the vinyl warm, streach it across the frame pulling it around the edges and staple it on what will be the inside of the panel. I found that stapling on the farthest in surface worked well. Reinstall the panels on the hinges you welded onto the tractor frame, make up some suitable latches, and drive off into the winter winds.

    Cab enclosure door

    The most used part of a homemade cab is the door, I found weld on hinges to be strong and cheap , compared to fabricating rod and tube hinges, check with your welding supply shop. Heavier hinges hold up well. Once the 3/4 in sq. tubing frame is fit up and hinges attached, dont forget some sort of swing stop, strap or otherwise, weld this on before the glass is fit up! For mounting the glass ,I welded a 1/2 x 1/8 band around the inside of the frame,forming a T, so as when the tempered glass or plexi is laid in from the out side, it sits flush with the outside of the frame. On the top I welded the strip on the outside so a to have a side to tuck the glass under.
