I got a phone call from a man in Co Donegal who told me they were quite common in South Ireland. They left the DB factory with a safety frame on top of the same 40mm solid steel brackets as weatherframe cabs and had a cab built round it by a company called Delany.They sold for about 5000 punts (£3000 approx) less than Secura cabbed 90 series, manual steering also kept down the cost, they had brake rods from the pedals to the hubs- no fluid or cylinders.
Sam Kennedy has some on his website.click on 90 series.

richbug, early 90 series had the headlights at the bottom of the grill, I have an American sales brochure showing them, later ones were at the top

I like the gear levers on the sides, creates a lot more room to climb on and of.
To bad they did not have this on selectamatics yet.

Be careful what you wish for. The right gear shift doesn't shift nearly as well as the Selectamatic ones.

what is so bad about it?
I've driven a 1394 with the sekura cab, wich has a comparable setup, and it wasn't to bad considering it's age and hours.

The selectas are crisp and easy to find a gear, no trouble shifting on the go. I always find myself searching for a gear in the 90/94s, and usually end up stopped before I find what I want.

Each to his own I guess, maybe the preference on the older ones is having driven them since childhood.

Hi Guys, I'm based in Co. Kerry and we had an 1194 with the same cab setup as above. I believe the cabs were manufactured by a company in Co. Cork and added when they arrived on the docks. The were big on space, but very low on comfort or noise protection. A neighbour of ours had an 1190 in the black and white livery with the same cab. Both we purchased from Buckley Agri which are still Case dealers. We are about 1 mile from the coast so the cabs did not hold up well to the salty air, back window was the first to go!

The gearboxes weren't great but the positioning of the gears were nice. They were definitely a poverty spec machine, although ours did have powers steering but did not come with a hydraulic connection.

My uncle has since retired and unfortunately the elements have got to the 1194 and the tinwork and steering has suffered. Was hoping to get it make running again but the economy has unfortunately focussed my attention elsewhere!

The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to get in and out with the gearsticks at the side but as richbug says gears are harder to get or maybe it was me trying to use the same gear positions as Sekura cabbed 90 and 94 tractors, these ones have the same gears as weatherframe and Q cab DBs.
gerkissane, could you post a picture of your 1194. Were there some sold with only the frame?

Hi Neville, I have only ever seen two other 1190/1194s in the locality and they both had the cab pictured above. Any other DB/Cases had the Sekura cab.

I won't be home for a week or two but I will get some pics of the 1194 and will post when as soon as I can.

The man from Donegal contacted me today again to say he found a brochure on these cabs and is posting it to me. There were 3 different types of cabs to suit different DB tractors.
Looking forward to seeing the photos of your 1190 and 1194 Ger.
