    My rant: *@#%&#(@$ Bobcat and their stupid door design. What a pain in the butt. Finally, today, I did it........popped it. Luckily just the hinges broke. Any idea what they cost? Do I have to get them from Bobcat? I was going to wait until winter to wire up a safety switch but winter didn't come fast enough.

    Takeuchi......I want to hug you, your door design is great.

    I miss being able to climb out with loaders arms up. But try a Takeuchi style door with a Harley rake. Dust still gets in my T-190, but at least it's not blowing giant clouds right on my face.

    The hinges are about $6 each... I have broken them a few times.

    Those stupid hinges are plastic, mine broke when the wind caiught the door and opened it too far, same happened to my F-450 last week.

    I did the same thing to mine shortly after I bought it. . .unfortunately I broke a lot more than a few hinges.
