 Lights on ROPS

I know we are not to drill or weld on ROPS for anything like lights or other ideas. Why do manufacturers not have a option "wing" on rops that you can drill into? A non structural integrated part that is welded on to the rops at the manufacturer that if you drilled it (or even cut it off for that matter) would not effect the integrity of the system.? Just wondering if anyone here would know of why something like this has not been introduced? Or maybe it has and I dont know about it?

You could "bond" a bracket on using a product that 3m makes to bond steel panels for collions repairs. Very strong stuff. Avalible at automotive paint supply stores.

The easiest thing to do is to mount the lights to a nicely fabricated bracket and then mount the bracket to the ROPS via u-bolts.
This way you don't compromise the ROPS and your safety and by loosening the u-bolts you can then reposition the lights as necessary for the task at hand.

sorry guys, I was making a statement not asking a question. Was wondering why the manufacturer dont have the drillable wings already welded to the rops in a nonstructural location just for optional rops lights.

 Lights on ROPS

I have a second hand JD 4300 that has holes drilled into the ROPS. The previous owner said his JD dealer installed his radio speakers on it for him and that it was no big deal. The speakers were removed before I owned it, I currently have lights installed using those holes. I am wondering if the ABSOLUTELY no holes is a bit of an "urban legend"? The factory manufactured lights are mounted in holes anyway.

Drilling holes in the ROPS seems to be a murky area. A lot of folks have done it, and one would assume that the ROPS is built with a bit of a safety margin where a few small holes wouldn't cause a problem, but.... failure of a modified ROPS would surely cause the manufacturer to disclaim any liability.
