Began my first project to "customize" my new NHT33 yesterday. decided to put mirror(s) on ROP. purchased "el cheapo" from part supply, did very simple install. then, noticed it had Lots of motion. further checking revealed 1 bolt on ROP was completely out, 1 had no nut or washer, other 2 were finger tight. this tractor has less than 30 hrs, so, apparently someone forgot to tighten. i'm old enough to know that i should have checked before, but i was just too lazy. needless to say, my next chore is a "walk-around" with wrenches. hey, NH owners, is there anything else I should check for???

Good comment and sort of ironic that it came the same day I posted a blurb about tightening. Yes, owners just have to do that stuff regularily.

I have a mirror too and maybe it has saved my life but for different reasons. I road my tractor sometimes on a highway that has narrow shoulders and bridges. Two transports with wide loads and me wouldn't fit on the highway plus shoulders some places so I have to keep careful track of traffic overtaking me. I was twisting around in the seat every few seconds to check for traffic. I figured that if I had to do that drive very often I could work as a carny contortionist.

The mirror works for checking traffic. It is mounted on the front side of a steel canopy. The ROPS is solid but the mirror still jumps around a lot at idle rpm anbd isn't too useful when chugging around the yard. It smoothes out around PTO RPM though.
