Lots of JD equipment on site. HPX's, every kind of Gator you can think of. My new 550S4 has a poly roof and cab and this is my first and only one. This is my concern, you can not hear a thing operating this machine it is so loud. Looking over threads I see that there are all sort of tranny issues, clutch issues and shifting problems. Not even ten hours and have had shifting issues:eek:. I would like to know if anyone else has a cab on there machine. I think that between the engine and trans the noise multiplies throughout the cab and it is what it is kind of thing:(. What you guys think, are these machines loud in general with out a cab? It is so loud that you can not talk to the person next to you.

Yup.. they are loud. Never drove one with a cab. IMHO the older HPX's, TS and TX were a better machine. Quiet, solid, no frills, no BS, getter done machines.

I don't have a cab but mine has a poly roof and windshield. It wasn't real bad for noise until I put the Windshield in then it got real noisy. I got use to it.
