Cabs, Enclosures & Shades
Lawn tractor cabs and shades allow you to use your tractor no matter what the weather
Your home may be the largest investment you'll make in your lifetime, and Sears knows you want it to look its best year 'round. One of the ways to do that is to have a healthy lawn and manicured landscaping. There's nothing like pulling into the driveway after a hard day of work and seeing your property looking its best. And when you have company over for dinner or the big game and everyone compliments you on your landscaping, not only do you feel proud of your home, but you also have a sense of accomplishment.
It's not so easy for you or your guests to get up that driveway, though, when it's slick outside. So when it's time to plow and salt, you'll love the lawn tractor snow cab. A tractor cab protects you from wind and snow, keeping you warm and dry. All it takes is the quick and easy installation of the steel tube frame with a corrosion-resistant finish. It's sturdy, so there's no worrying about it detaching, no matter how bumpy the ride. The shatter-resistant wrap-around plastic windshield is not only created to provide you with optimum visibility through the material, but it also allows you to see from all directions. In addition, it can withstand sub-zero temperatures and is tear-resistant. You no longer need to worry about debris flying up and catching you. When you're done and the vinyl cab is covered in salt and sand, simply rinse it down.
In the summer, you'll want a lawn tractor shade. Craftsman, America's most trusted brand, has options to fit many tractors. It has a large diameter canopy with a rear flap that attaches with a sturdy, easy-to-assemble tubular frame. Because it is mounted near the seat, it won't get in the way of your other add-ons or attachments, such as a bagger. It is UV-resistant, so it won't fade. Plus it resists tears. And clean-up is a snap with just a little soap and water.
A tractor shade provides shelter from the sun beating down on your head, but it's not enclosed like the cab; you can enjoy some cool breezes as you go. When the sun's beating down in the summer, and you're all comfy under the shade, adjust the mower blades so you don't cut the grass too low to the ground. While 2 inches is standard in the spring and fall, 2.5 to 3 inches is better for the summer months. If you also use an ATV for lawn tasks such as hauling and spreading, don't forget an ATV shade.
In addition to the shade for the summer and cab for the winter, you might find some miscellaneous tractor accessories helpful. For example, cutting too close and skimming a tree while mowing is common, but bark damage can cause hydration problems for trees. Shop for tractor bumpers to help not only minimize any harm to your trees, but also protect your mower so you don't end up with costly repairs. Sears offers everything you need to take care of your lawn no matter what the season.
