Does anyone know of a supplier for folding ROPS on the JD 3203 cut? Comes standard with fixed, no folding option from Deere. Thanks

Generally, OEM's don't like giving oiut who makes their parts for several reasons---one being lawsuits in cases just like this when someone wants to modify an existing part. If it didn't come with a fold down rollbar, you'll likley pay through the nose for one that does as the folding or non folding have to meet rigorous and stringent roll-over standards, plus the cost of liablility insurance is passed on to you (which could be several hundred per rollbar). You are ill-advised to make it fold down yourself by cutting/welding and it's done all the time. But you compromise structural integrity which means your safety. If that doesn't faze you---cut and weld on, brotha'! ....

Femco makes an aftermarket folding ROPS. I believe it is priced around $299.
