88 series mirrors

Recommended Posts

Does anyone make a mirror that fits on an 88 series cab half way decent?  I a lot of time last week installing a K&M mirror on my 5488.  I had to modify the mounting bracket so the door would close, and also notching the corner trim on the cab.

        Once I got the actual mirror installed, it shook so badly that I took it off, not to mention that when the door opened it would hit the mirror glass.  This tractor has the K&M door opener kits on it, and they open quite a bit further forward.

     I guessing I’ll have to come up with a mirror that mounts to the door instead?

No, don't go on the door. You won't like that either. We build our own, maybe should market them. Have had lots of guys ask where we got them. Welded to the rops, you have to cut the trim to fit, but they really work and DON'T wiggle. Here are a few pics of the ones we build. The mirror glass is the same as the 1680. They are $20ish from ASAP.

We put a set of aftermarket mirrors on the 7240. First mirror broke the first day in use and they shook too much . Replaced the mirror head and it lasted a few days . At the time our 8950 had 11k+ hours on the factory mirrors and never broken one yet . We ended up going with factory ones and retrofitting mounts on anything since then

bought these mirrors through case. looked for the cheapest
ones i could find. this was before the after market ones were
available. we mounted the on the front of the roof. we put a
backer plate in and made the mounting brackets. then bolted
it all together. did this on my 5288 & 3688.
