Never heard of it. I used to haul rock out of the Witchita Mountains near Lawton, Okla. I would stop once in a while and get a block of ice for a quarter,put it in a dish pan on the right floor board, open the vent on the right side, just in front of the bottom of the door, and open the driver's window just enough to create air flow over the ice. Didn't do much good, but better than the old "2-60" A/C.

Hay thanks Okie-Dokie I bought a Zetor tractor with cab. I got a price for the a/c from a dealer before I bought it, well after I bought it the a/c was three times what I was told. You just cain't stand it in a cab without air. This koolair works from an ice chest with a fan blowing thru and over the ice, may just have to try it just cain't see the $2500.00 for the air agter I was told $800.00 Coaltrain

I don't know why sales people do that sort of thing, but it happens all the time. Seems like they figure that if you don't know what questions to ask, then you are just another sucker, and they don't keep the same job long enought to worry about repeat buisiness either. But you are right, you are going to either have to take the cab off or find some way to keep from boiling inside there.
