    Hmmmmmm.......after watching that video, I'm darned near inclined to re-install mine that I removed not long ago.
    And, "probably" should start wearing the seat-belt, just in case.
    Yep.....I'll jump right on that this a.m.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    Remember the rule for using a tractor with ROPS. ROPS up, seatbelt on, ROPS down, seatbelt off. The ROPS can only protect you if you are within the operator station. If the ROPS is folded or removed, you don't want the seatbelt to hold you still while the tractor rolls over on you.

    Makes me glad the ROPS is as tall as it is and bends towards the front.

    This is a great video to see. I was a little surprised to see that the ROPs was actually preventing complete roll-overs. I guess that makes sense but it isn't what I always had pictured in my little pea-brain.
