    Another ROPS attack on the garage header... Hit it hard enough to knock the door opener off the header, destroyed the trim, paint, and door seals. Not to mention the nice new scratches on the ROPS.

    This wasn't the first time either. I don't have an excuse. I was just outside the garage taking the loader off and dropped the BB and should've seen the ROPS and folded it. Normally I put something in my way into the garage as a reminder. Yesterday was different. I went over to my neighbors house to help him with some chores and decided over there to put the ROPS up. Never put anything in the garage as a reminder.....Dadgummit.

    Too bad. What amazes me is how pissed I get each time I do it. You'd think we'd learn after a while.

    Ouch... My reminder is that I always back the tractor in. That way I see it. Works for me, but there should really be a light on the dash, or something.

    The good thing here is this thread will act as a refresher course for the rest of us. Thanks dieselshadow I should now be good for a couple months.

    I'm sooo disappointed. I'm passed the angry stage.

    I'm waiting for somebody to post I deserve it. Heck, just posting this makes me feel a little better. If it can help someone else prevent doing the same thing

    At least you didn't actually pull the door off! That sucks, man. I was always bad about ducking under limbs, then the ROPS catching said limb and hitting me with it.

    These are the kinds of accidents that you'll end up laughing about in a few months , as long as you didn't get hurt (except maybe your ego )

    Thanks for sharing Jason.

    Ouchiley pooto.......Needed more fresh air leakage around the door for that a/c ?
    I had a friend hang an aluminium bar about 10 inches out from the opening,running parallel
    and even with the top of the opening,He painted it to match the trim so it wasnt obvious or stood out, but would warn him if he left the rops up
