Did you try Simms? I was recently looking for a cab for a NH backhoe and saw a lot of skid steer cab info. Here is a link.

If you have a g series or later bobcat, you can get a door frame and glass for about $200. You can purchase the hardware, seals, and front step plate separate for another $150 +/- and have a door that's made to fit on the cab.
If you have an older bobcat, they have some flat doors that shut ok but I never liked them much.

Do you need glass or lexan?

I have the K series. It doesn't matter if it is glass or lexan. Which would be cheaper? Where can I get this from?

K series and G series doors are similar and will work on either even though they aren't exactly the same. I swapped my k series door with G series and vice versa.

Lexan is much more expensive. Bobcat won't supply it anymore but I can get it new lexan windows made from the Bobcat lexan that is no longer in production.
Glass is cheaper. If you aren't grinding, get glass. Lexan will scratch but missiles will deflect off it.

O, I would want the glass

So it would cost me about what $400 to $450 for the glass door plus the shipping it up here

If you are going glass you should be able to go to your dealer and get all the parts you need except lexan unless you want the 3/4" which has to be bolted on the outside (and sucks bad). You said bobcat, right? Your picture shows a JD skidsteer. Not the same fit.

Yes for a bobcat. And I want glass. I have bobcat and Jd

I'm going to ask the dealer how much it cost

OK I talked to the dealer a little while back. And he said it cost $550. For the glass door with the mounting kit. Forgot to ask is that with the wiper or not, man for $550 it should have one. Thinking about getting a 12 volt heater in there too, anyone do this before, how did it work? for me as long as I'm out of the wind I'm fine

i doubt the wiper comes with it. Would check. Price has come down for the door kit. Used to be $700 unless my dealer was ripping me.

O thanks alot. Do you think I will need the wiper? I would kind of think so:confused: wonder how much extra that would be?

I used to plow with a G-series 773 without a wiper,I would just put Rain-x on the windshield and it would work pretty good....even in the blowing snow.Now in the rain I don't know....But then again if it's raining your probably not working.

just price out the frame (about $70)
Glass $100
Seals $45
threshold for bottom $45-70
Wiper and assembly probably $300
door hardward (handle and piston) $50
Labor for glass 1 hour.
I don't see how they can price 1300 unless they were looking at the "forestry door"
