 Need suggestion/input for NH TC33D sun canopy

I need some input on a hard sunshade or canopy for my NH TC33D. Price, quality and durability are priorities. I'm not too interested in the diamond plate aluminum ones.

Here is the supplier of OEM canopies for New Holland. From New Holland the were around $400 about a year ago. In my opinion they are pretty sturdy. The only way you are going to get any stronger is steel.

The local JD dealer sells Firebird fiberglass canopies and claims to have good luck with them. They might be the OEM supplier for JD as well, not sure. They looked mighty good to me. I wanted one to keep my noggin dry in the rain but figure no canopy would survive all the tree limbs I crash into. I have heard the Firebird will sell seconds (flaws in the finish) at a good savings. It may not hurt to see if they have any seconds if you call 'em.

I bought the diamond plate aluminum top, and have had great luck with it. I have hit many limbs while mowing, and do not have a dent in it yet. I had a fiberglass top, and it lasted about 3 hits from some smaller limbs, and it shattered on me. I paid $350 last summer form the NH dealer by me. It took about 30 min to install, and it was a one man job.

How much did the diamond plate canopy raise your vertical height? I have about 1.5" clearance between the ROPS and the garage header.

I just installed a Tufftop fiberglass canopy on my TC29D. While not a true hardtop, itís much better than the umbrella type. For $200, it works perfect. It is easy to put to together, has an adjustable tilt angle and removes in seconds.

From experience, I can tell you without any hesitation, fiberglass or poly sunshade canopies do NOT like tree branches or travelling on trailers.

Both of those items significantly shorten their life spans.

The steel ones are not so bad, but still not perfect.

Best of luck.

Price, quality and durability are priorities.

First listed is price so going there:
Plywood. Cost is low enough you can afford to replace as needed.
Lexan, and if really like low cost, DOT sign.

If you don't like the diamond tread, find a shop that cuts their own metal and have one cut from what you want and place angle iron or other metal under it for support. I don't find the fiberglass as hot as the metal. But you can insulate any. I do agree with Murf on trees. Metal holds up much better there. It normally will just bend, rather than bust.
You will want it to slope towards the rear. Pouring rain onto hood is not much fun. If you have back hoe you may need to do other.
