Anyone know who manufactures cab enclosures for ztr's-primarily Kubota ZD-331's. I think they would come in handy-especially for those rainy days. I've searched online with no luck. Thanks-John.

Sorry, don't know about a cab for a Kubota, but you can get a cab for the Toro Groundsmaster 7200/7210

Why would you mow if it is raining that hard that you need an enclosure for a ZTR?

I know you can get a cab for the Walkers, they designed it to be used with their snow blowers. No reason it couldn't be used for mowing.

When you work in the lighting capital of the US, you don't mow in the rain. Also, it would be like an oven in side that thing. (Southeast Florida)

Mount a big umbrella.

One reason I own Turf tiger is because how low you ride on machine. Any thing like enclosure or umbrella would be torn off on my first pass around the house. People in Florida like their tree limbs low.

Grasshopper makes cabs for their mowers, but like the Walkers, its for winter work only!

I dont want to use them in the winter-but the thought has crossed my mind. And we dont cut in heavy downpours, but there are a number of days we lose a year (probably 10-15 or so) because of light rain-which screws up scheduling. Plus in the spring and fall it gets a little nippy to be riding around, and even the slightest shower sucks.

I would think it would be more of a hassle with low branches. Unless you're cutting fields where there are no trees with low branches.

I purchased a cab for my Honda Snowblower years ago from Original Tractor Cab. I use it on those windy days when clearing snow. It works well for that.

They make other cabs as well. I can't see them being very useful on a ZTR but here are 2 different types.

Here's another option for ya. How about a new Hustler 3500/3700 Series. They're a little pricey though.

Its the cabs I'm looking for. I already have the machines. But thats exactly the type of cab I'm looking for. Thanks Jim. Any idea who makes them?

A surplus space suit with a/c would probably be cheaper.

Thats a Holder.

The idea of the cab would be to protect from the elements in spring and fall when its a little chilly, and a little wet, and mid summer when its 30 plus degrees (celsius). A little rain in july wont kill anyone, but the slightest sprinkle in October can ruin anyones day, esp if they have to ride a mower without a cab all day long.

We dont make it common practice to cut during torrential downpours, and never would. This option seems like a practical solution to lost production on those chilly October and November mornings, and it could be nice on those scorching days too. JMO

I agree. Mowing those large lots that take 5 or 6 hours of non stop mowing kills you in the summertime.
