    What to do with the ROPS???

    Love my Mauser cab on my 18 1025R, but now I've got this big ol ROPS hanging out with me in the shop everyday. Any ideas what the heck I can do with it? Its not like theres a big market for these!!! Maybe I can make something out of it, I dunno! Ideas?

    If you have a cab what did you do with your ROPS????

    Actually, there is more of a market than you might imagine. There have been several advertised for sale and they all sold quickly.
    2012 2720 -- 200CX Loader -- 54" Quick Attach Snow Blower -- Frontier LR5060 Rake -- Land Pride RB1660 Blade (Hydraulic Angle) -- Artillian 42" Forks -- Ken's Bolt on Grab Hooks -- Fit Rite Hydraulic top-link -- 2013 X500 for mowing duties

    No kidding? I figured that anyone needing one already had one! Its not like these things get damaged very often. I hope not anyway!

    I hadn't checked the classifieds on here so thought I'd look there after seeing your response. Sure enough someone is looking for one! Maybe I can help him out!

    Many thanks, Steve

    I think a lot of guys buy a second one so they can cut it and make a shorter top section and other mods. That way if and when they sell their tractor they can put the original ROPS back on and not take the hit on resale value.

    Thanks! I'll go that route eventually if no one on here wants it and is close enough to come get it. I've looked around a bit now and see they have sold in that $150-$200 range. Might help me buy some 1.5" wheel spacers!!

    $150 for a $700 ROPS, someone got the deal of the day on that. I'm not saying you have to charge as much as a dealer, but you don't have to give it away either.

    I would keep it. If you ever want to add a backhoe I think you need to remove the cab. I could be wrong though. But if so it would lower resale value if you don't have it more than you will get for it.
