 I knew it would happen someday...

For nine months I've religiously folded the ROPS before backing the Kubota into the shed. It was bound to happen sooner or later. A piece of rope hanging from the ceiling got my attention as I was putting the tractor away and CRUNCH/RIP, the door header ended up at an unusual angle.

The good news is I now have an eight foot door in place and I no longer have to fold/unfold the rollover protection each time I use it.

This is not really a tractor project, more like a tractor CAUSED project. Smile

Dave

The only difference between us is I haven't fixed the door yet.

I have about 2" of clearance under our garage door. One fine winter day when there's about 3" of snow on the ground I'll probably do it too So Sad

Mine will almost fit in the barn with the ROPS up.
Almost.
Have done it several times.

I nearly took out a floor joist on our wood deck backing into the basement garage when I forgot to fold down the ROPS. Too a bit out of the joist board and ruin a good pair of draws when that 2 x 10 snapped back into position with thunderous pop! Now I remember to fold the ROPS down. I have come close to forgetting a few times but caught myself. CRS is horrible! ;o)

I've got a pair of 12'x12' doors in the shop, if I hit anything it's on purpose, and even then I'd have to be trying REALLY hard.

There is however a small shiny spot on the underside of the header of the garage door at the house where I carry the pallets of firewood in. The ROPS (on my old machine) cleared by about 1/2", when I got carried away loading pallets of firewood that often disappeared. Since getting a machine with a full cab I haven't been able to bring myself to experiment that way.

Best of luck.

Nope not yet for me, but last week I did hit a tree while backing up (in the side door and rocker!!!) Trying to get around the blue beast. Atleast my tractor was not hurt!!!!

My garage is designed to house both my dump truck & Trailer while hitched up. The building is 50' long and each bay is 9' high with an overhead door at both ends so I can drive straight out the next morning. Well, With my old 790 I was able to fit no problem with the tractor on the trailer. When I first got my kubota, I forgot that it was so much taller then the old tractor. Luckily it only cracked the bottom panel of the overhead door & I have able to salvage it with some new hindges. You can hardley notice the crack now unless you are looking.

One advantage to having a smaller tractor(NH TZ24DA), my ROPS is only 72 - 73". My problem is low hanging tree branches, I have broken several. This fall I need to do a lot of tree trimming.
