I had this set up before in this cab but after putting the loader on I never got around to changing it to blow heat into the cab.The problem was that where I had the blower sitting and the hose's running I couldn't do it anymore due to the hyd.tank and pump being in the way .So I got busy today and repositioned the blower to a different spot and routed the hose's different.It now will be blowing hot air from the motor into the cab.:madhop:I had to make sure that the tire wouldn't ever rub on the bloweras well. It used to be warm enough to take mitts and touque off.The blower is out of a Dodge Volaire station wagon that had heat in the back.Larry

Larry, you are a very busy tractor nut. I would love to have a heated cab but we don't get enough of the white stuff to really justify it. Thanks for posting the pics.

Here when it gets -30 c and there's a North wind blowing you need some kinda protection from the wind and some extra heat is always welcomed.Larry

With the exception of last years deluge of snow, we don't usually get enough to warrant such an undertaking, but that's a fine piece of work! I hope that it serves you well!

I don't have the tractor anymore but when I was using it I never noticed any fumes. The cab wasn't close to being air tight so there was always fresh air coming in. The other thing was that for winter use I did have a exhaust stack so I never got any exhaust fume smell.
