Inspirational! Love the front loader; who made that? Bolens?

Now need to do work on the 1254 to the same standards as yours.

I also think you should nominate your tractor for tractor of the month too.

Cheers

Andrew

Was checking out some old threads today and came across this one and thought I would add some close up pictures of the ROPS that came on my HT23 when I bought it since they are not posted on this site - normally I would not update an old thread but since Ricks tractor looks so nice and the ROPS is not a common accessory I hope you do not mind.  My HT23 came with the ROPS (which I believe was installed on the tractor when it was sold new), seat belts and a soft cab but does not have the metal canopy piece (I assume it got misplaced over the years) - the story I got form the previous owner was that he was the third owner of the tractor (if memory serves me correctly) and that the tractor was originally purchased for use at a school.  It came with a snow caster and a lawn mower deck and originally there was a snow plow as well but the plow got sold by one of the previous owners.

You want one from that exact company or just that style of lap belt? Common heavy equipment safety belt.

Took some pictures of the eyes and latches of the seat belts as well as lengths of them - since they are a rather unique mounting system using two eyes at each end of the belt and one is fixed and the other adjustable and the sizes of the bolt holes are different I decided that the information might be useful for someone trying to identify or duplicate them.  I also found the part numbers of the seat belts and the ROPS in one of the newer Garden Way manuals - looks like the part number for the seat belts was 1359.

Laid the belts out side by side and took pictures of them at various spots to show the placement locations of the eyes - hope this helps someone.
