    I don't think I would own a open cab excavator even in the summer time the full cab excavators are nicer as they keep the dust away from you.

    Here on the West Coast (Pacific Northwest) where we get alot of rain some times it falls vertical but it does fall horizontal when the wind blows and open cab machines you get soaking wet.

    We don't have much cold weather but closing the windows and doors and turning on the heater is nice.

    i really havent minded it so far, even workin outside in the winter. I'm not going to be digging in pouring rain or during the dead of winter so I think i'll be alright. $5000 difference for the enclosed cab, so for my needs i think it was a justified $5000 savings.

    That's a nice Mini, but I gotta agree with Gravel Rat, enclosed cab is the only way to go, few more jobs and its paid for....

    Most excavators sold here come with enclosed cabs as machines work all year round. I don't think the cab option is that much extra on a machine sold here.
