The operator of a 5M Series cab will appreciate the reduction in noise and vibration through the seat, steering wheel, and lever controls with a rollover protective structure (ROPS) certified, factory-installed cab.
The cabs are assembled to the tractor chassis as a complete unit and mounted on composite isolators. This system of assembly and mounting is similar to the successful mounting methods of the larger-horsepower tractors in the John Deere agricultural tractor family.
The complete cab assembly includes the floor and steering column. Having this type of fully isolated cab, greatly reduces noise levels inside the cab. It also creates a more sealed environment so the amount of airborne particles entering the cab, such as dust and pollen, are greatly reduced.
The cab is very roomy, allowing ample space for controls and storage. The flat floor adds to the spacious, open feel. The ceiling control panel is located on the upper right side, and the air-conditioner components are located on the upper-rear corners of the cab where visibility is not as critical. This provides the operator with visibility to the loader at a height unmatched by any competitor.
The perfect operator environment
5M Series cabs provide a clean, quiet environment protected from the elements. Powerful air-conditioning and heating systems allow the operator to control the cab climate to preference, regardless of the conditions outside. The standard visor blocks the sun on bright days, while a dome light allows the operator to see controls at all times of the day.
The cab's side windows open forward for excellent ventilation, and right- and left-side doors open wide for easy entry and egress. For excellent rear visibility, the fuel tank is located below the left-hand side of the platform. The rear window opens to 70 degrees, providing further visibility to the operator when hooking up implements. An interior rearview mirror provides additional visibility.
A tilt and telescoping steering column provides a custom fit for each operator. The clean, uncluttered interior design with flat platform maximises operator space, and a conveniently located beverage holder provides space for the operator's drink of choice.
All cab trim levels also come standard with a storage drawer underneath the seat, floor mat and a coat hook for added comfort and convenience.

A deluxe, adjustable cloth seat is standard with cab tractors. Ergonomically designed seat cushioning and support provide unsurpassed operator comfort. This is the same basic seat used with vinyl covering for the isolated open operator station tractors.
Fore-aft adjustment is easy using a lever located at the operator's right-hand side. Height adjustment is accomplished without tools, and four possible positions set the limit for how high the seat will travel.
Weight-suspension adjustment is easily accomplished from the seat, which adjusts to the operator's weight (100 lb to 275 lb). When the suspension is set to the weight of the operator, the indicated height setting appears through a display window. This allows the operator to set the seat suspension at its mid-point of travel.
Armrests come standard with the seat and are adjustable. The backrest angle is adjustable with a lever in the lower-left corner of the seat cushion, and retractable seat belts are easily accessible. Operators can get even more comfortable with a field-installed backrest extension or lumbar and attenuation.
Cab tractors can also be equipped with an optional air-suspension seat.
Operating features and solutions
Excellent overall visibility in all applications with a swing-out rear window opens to a full 70 degrees for easier implement hookup and visibility. A front windshield wiper with washer ensures the operator can see the surroundings of the tractor. A rear window wiper is also available ex-factory as well as through attachments.
Excellent night visibility is achieved with a full lighting package, and work lights are easily adjusted to redirect light without tools.
There is a convenient three-pin power outlet for monitor, controllers, and other operating necessities. Four sets of mounting bosses and a removable rear access plug for monitor or controller harnesses also make using a monitor easy.
A rear seven-pin electrical outlet socket for implement electrical requirements and a 120-amp alternator handles increased electrical requirements. To handle increased powertrain and hydraulic requirements in severe conditions, a hydraulic oil cooler is standard.
The battery is located in the front of the tractor for easy access. Fenders are designed to provide plenty of tire clearance, even with the largest wheel-tire combinations.
Additional features are as follows:
- Rollover protective structure (ROPS) - certified structure for operator protection
- Tempered safety glass in case of breakage
- Transport - two front and two rear
- Two fender-mounted taillights for road transport
- Two large cleated steps on each side
