As some of you know I recently acquired a ROPS for my HT tractor,here's some info on it,made by Stolper Ind Inc,Menomonee Falls WI,made 8-29-79 for FMC Outdoor Power ,tested for 1800 lbs gvw,trying to do research it looks like the plant closed in 2005,and looks like it was bought out and move to Canada,sure was a lot of garden tractor stuff made in WI,looks like the plant was tore down for future development,I found an article on Google,a old employee said when they lost Catapiler,that was the end,

I'm thinking that it would look better on my 1886 with the forklift attachment  :D :D :D

 

Guys, I saw that when Rick was  picking up an attachment that I was holding for him.

 

That thing is SERIOUSLY overbuilt.  It will DEFINATELY protect you in a roll over provided you hare using a seat belt.

 

The optional sunshade that he got with it is pretty cool as well.
