    The ROPS is a pain IMHO. I mow with mine so I can't leave it up due to mowing under trees. It wont drop completely down either, pinned, unless you tie it with a rag and a bungee, but then you can't use any 3 point implements or the BH because it's in the way. When it's folded back horizontal it becomes a headache smashing your head on it.

    So I took my top section right off. I know, I know, it's defeating it's purpose, however most accidents are caused by stupidity and I try not to be stupid

    Congrats on the machine! They are oh so sweet!

    BTW, where in NH? I live in Southern Maine.

    I’m in Londonderry. Yeah the ROPS is a pain. I have to fold it in order to get it in my garage and with the backhoe it won’t fold all the way. The guy that delivered it told me to rest it on the dipper piston which is what I did. Unfortunately I forgot about it and when I lowered the boom to unhook the backhoe while standing under it and it swung down and nailed me right in the head. The piston housing took the brunt of it which is good because if it hit me square I would of been night night.

    I’ve since found a way to pin it so it won’t rest on the hoe.

    Welcome and congratulations on the new tractor.

    As you can see, we are a pretty interesting group.

    Sounds like you are "hard headed" enough to fit right in.

    BTW, we have a thread specifically for those that forget to fold the ROPS before entering the garage.
