    Can you get a cab enclosure to fit these? I've got an '05 S150, and I'd like to be able to add heat and ac, if it isn't too much of a PIA to do. Anyone done that?

    I have an 05 s150 also I believe it was about a 3000 dollar option direct from bobcat.

    i believe you need the S160 at a minimum to get AC from Bobcat.
    good luck

    Dont put this in stone, but i have a 02 s185 and at the time it was the first series in size for ac it used to be the 773. I had previous a 99 763 and it was not availible for air.

    The skidsteer solutions cab might work, I figured maybe I could rig up an ac unit on the roof. Might be more trouble than it's worth.

    You can do the cab no problem, just contact the dealer that you got the machine from, we have an S175 that I put a cab on it ran me about 1300 for the cab, that was front door with wiper. The heat can also be put in the S150 without much problem, the ac may be a problem they only offer it in the S 185 and up, it can be put in the smaller machines if you can get someone to install it. The roof mounted one is an option you just have to watch you won't rip it off.

    Mmm, clarification: all of tnmtn and start2finish and BobcatBoy06 are mostly right... the S160 is available with air-conditioning, as is the S185 (and up). The only models not available with factory AC are the MT52, MT55, 463, 553, S130, S150, and S175.
