I know what they are, usually incorporated with a FOPS (falling object prevention system) but I’ve never seen it on a 1, 2, 3 or 4 series.

I have seen the tractors used by local highway departments and forestry departments decked out with this stuff but I have never seen a compact tractor from any manufacturer having anything like it.

Just curious, what are you doing with a 1 series that you would want this :dunno:

A limb riser is not a bad idea. I do a lot of brush hogging along the woods and its a pain with how many limbs wack my rops, my lights, and me. I might make something a little more heavy duty than steel cable, like actual bar stock but I like the idea. Worth a try. It will at least protect the hood from scratches.

But could you raise the hood with it?

Doing a simple google search makes it seem like this is a pretty common thing to do. I know I have seen a similar setup on the county mowing tractors. I am sure they can still open the hood but ideally I would want to have them removable since I only brush mow a few times a year during the summer.

I'm a para.
It would help getting on and off, keep things off of me when working around the edge of woods, give me something to grab onto when trying to get situated in the seat, some where to mount my sprayer gauge and controls, and a place to rest a limb-feller (and the one shown would be great, I use the old pruning type now and it a pain).

Got it, should work, what year is your tractor? Shouldn’t be too hard for a fabricator to design something for you off of the forward leaning ROPS of the ‘18’s.

Alternate to a limb riser > limb feller.

CoalTrain ~ after my recent tree trimming I'm thinking I need one of these instead of the pole saw I have now.

Do you have one of these trimmers? Would you recommend one? :unknown:
