Got started on the ROPS system(roll over protection system)on my HT-20,as some of you guys know I picked this up last summer,finally have a little time to get it on,this was a factory option for the large frame HT's,,I have only ever seen it in the brochure,never had seen one in person,and don't know of anybody having one,this is brand new,the big thing is when I picked it up I didn't expect to see a metal canopy that attaches to the roll bar,no pictures I ever saw showed it,decided it was time to freshin up the tractor also,so degreased tractor started painting the frame,will also paint the sheet metal and the loader,it will also get all new decals,will post some pics as it goes along,the mounts for the roll bar are unbelieveable,very heavy duty

Holy heavyweight, Batman! Are you sure it's just a ROPS to be mounted? Looks like you can also throw a backhoe attachment and a few other kitchen sink items on that support system. :worshippy1:

 

As they say in FIFA Futbol ... GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLL

No kidding!

You could park the tractor upside down on those, along with all the attachments.

Looks like it would add some weight to the rear for traction. They certainly made it strong. The frame will bend before those give.

Hello Rick,
Can't wait to see the finished product. Will the tins need trimmed?

Take care
Mike

That's the only draw back to installing this,I'll have to drill 4 holes in my fender pan,the roll bar sits ontop of the fender pan and gets bolted to the mounts,there's a plate on the roll bar by the manufactor that's states tested for 1800 lbs protection

Well actually that's not to bad. I guess if you wanted to remove it all you need to do is replace the four bolts each side and your done
