Mwink RZR Cab fibreglass vs. ABS

It's been a long time coming. Beaver at http://www.beaverpro.com/products/po...olaris-RZR.htm has finally built their doors to their ABS cab. The doors are steel and they claim they fit very well. Rangerware at http://rzrcabs.com/ promises to have their doors built this summer and their complete system including planned doors is fibreglass. Both cabs I'm advised will weigh about the same around 100 lbs.

I like the looks of the fibreglass system as it can be bought to match your existing machine colors. Winters coming to an end, so I suppose I could wait on doors.

My biggest concern will be durability and would like to have some feedback on such. Rangerware claims they have a reputation for building durable fibreglass cabs for tractors etc..

Has anyone bought the Beaver cab or the existing Rangerware cab without doors? What's everyones elses pulse on the two cab systems? Neither one is cheap. The Beaver (out of Canada) is a little cheaper because of the Canadian exchange on the dollar right now. In any case they will range between $2300 with favorable exchange to $3000. Rangerware is based in states and expects complete cab to be between $2500 and $3000. Riding in the northeast with tracks, they come close to making sense in this screwed up economy.

Re: RZR Cab fibreglass vs. ABS

Rangerware has a tipout windshield coming out and that probably will sway me torwards them since it looks like they are not easily removed.

Is there any problems with rear visabilty with a cab?

Re: RZR Cab fibreglass vs. ABS

my question would be how do they compare fit and usage wise to the polaris cab? how easily do the doors come off? how secure are the latches and do the side windows come off easily? gerry

Re: RZR Cab fibreglass vs. ABS

Gerry,
I haven't seen either Beaver or Rangerware cabs in person. The companies tell me there is no comparism in fit of their cab system with the Polaris Lock and ride. (supposedly much better) I've seen the Polaris Lock and Ride set up at a dealer on a rzr. It was a terrible fit with 1 to 2 inch gap in door closure. But, from what I've read in forum, it also depends upon how well you tweak the set up. Both companies say it's an "easy install" and "removal". But, what they call "easy" may be an all day event for some of us. I contacted Beaver folks and they say the Beaver doors remove by pulling the pin and they also have a half door.

I'm concerned whether or not the fibreglass will stand up as well as the "1/8" ABS???
