 ROPS vs garage door opening

Here's one for laughs: almost made my garage door opening just tall enough to let the tractor in without folding the ROPS. Lucky for me the house is faced with brick, so no major damage done and the ROPS will need a quick spray over with Kubota grey.

Me as well only the ROPS hit the wood deck rafter beams overhead but they flexed out of the way and sprang back with a defenning POP! Ruined a good pair of draws on that one!. ;O)

I now have an 8' header and taller door on one side of my garage. I just used the big hole left by the ROPS to judge the height I needed. Smile

If there is any way to make your opening taller I would suggest you do it. Sooner or later you'll drive your unfolded ROPS into it again.

This past winter it was close so I used the bucket to raise the front and lower the roll bar. For got that then I had the garage door to contend with so I backed out and lowered the rollbar! Such is life, just needed a little more time!

 ROPS vs garage door opening

Here is a pants changer for you all.....

Years ago, I had cobbed together a makeshift cab for one of my tractors, complete with a hook atop for easy removing with an overhead hoist.

At the time I kept it in a shed of sorts. We had a lot of snow that winter, and , one winter's day, I fired the tractor up and proceeded out the shed to plow.

It VERY soon became clear that something was amiss, when I saw myself doing a wheeley with a front loader! The nose had lifted slightly upon my exiting the shed from the high snow pack. Once the rear got to the snow, the added height of the tractor cab caught the shed doorway, proceeded to drag the old shed frame a bit until it was snagged in the snow itself, then picked the cab off the tractor as if it were hinged behind the seat.....Damn it got cold FAST !

It does not take long for stuff to happen - for sure. Needless to say, I fab'd a much better cab, with serious components which has been in use now for nearly twenty years ......Minus the hook ! (The shed made a nice bonfire)

 ROPS vs garage door opening

This past weekend I broke the left rear rops light on my JD tractor going around an oak tree, same kind of thing--trying to go too fast and not paying attention. Guess the dealer won't mind supplying another. I'm glad now that they're made of a cheap (or maybe not so cheap) plastic housing. Luckily I haven't hit anything in my garage yet. But I'm just coming up on 50 hours . . .

I echo Murf's Laughing out loud!!!

I have backed a loaded on 3 pt tractor under a shed watching clearance unhook and then, well the canopy top did manage to slide under the header.

Watch adding canopy to a rop you have already checked on clearance or tires change.
