 Folding rop

When I bought the tractor a JD4400 it fit into the garage fine but now will be moving and the garage opening is too short. The dealer wants $650 for a folding rop I was just trying to get ideas if anyone has had a similar problem. I'm located in Kansas City.

Yes, It's why I built a new barn for the tractor.

Cracker, if you are a good welder or you know a good one; you can cut the ROPS and weld slightly smaller square stock to the cut off portion and slide this part of the ROPS back into the portion still attached to the tractor. You can then drill a hole in each side for a pin or bolt. Bear in mind that at best you may be able to retain the original strenght of the ROPS but more likely possibly weaken it some. A good welder should be able to reinforce the effected areas of the ROPS enough to be as good as new. This is not the best option but much less than a new folding ROPS.

Chief,
Won't this void his warrenty if he has any left or at the very least it would absolve all libility from John Deere let alone could impact his life and or liabilty insurence (It's an OSHA thing) whether we like it or not!
Correct me if I'm wrong!

Dean,

Deere tractors are warrantied for 2 years. He has no warranty left. Of course if you modify a safety device such as a ROPS you absolve all libility from John Deere. He will have to check with his insurer to find out the particulars as to what is effected in his insurance. I pointed out that this is not the best option. He asked for an alternate course of action and I gave one. It goes without saying when you modify something you take responsibility for it. In this case, as long as he is the user of the tractor it is his decision. If he chooses to sell it; he must make the new owner aware of and accept responsibility for this modification. If he does not wish to modify the ROPS and the baggage that comes along with it; he can pay $650 for a folding ROPS.

Do you have to end every sentence with a !!!! ?????????

Dean, come to think of it, Cracker would be accepting the exact same liability and responsibility for modifying the ROPS that you do for that nice looking building your built for your Kubota. ;O)

"Do you have to end every sentence with a !!!! ?????????"

No Sir, I don't have to do that it's an old habit from teaching at many service schools and giving aviation flight seminars to FAA applicants while using blackboards or on easel sheets.

I must say most enjoyed and learned from my presentations for the content as well as the energy /style in presentation.
You are the first person who has expressed an objection to that personal practice of mine.

I'll try to accomadate your objection in the future without overdoing the punctuation.

Dean

I took the ROPS off my 2210! I had the same problem, transporting, going under the gates and fences that I have to navigate etc.. Needless to say, I don't wear my seat-belt either! This may not be the best solution, specially if you are mowing the ditch with the the FEL raised all the way up! Having fun with!!!
