Program participants, with the exception of Wisconsin residents, have the option to self-install their ROPS kits. However, we do not recommend this approach because this can prove to be a long, complex, and physically demanding process for some tractor models. Professional (dealer) installation assures that the ROPS is properly attached and will not fail under the considerable forces generated in a tractor overturn. Those who do choose to self-install the ROPS assume the responsibility and liability for ensuring that the installation has been done properly.
We suggest you read the article "Pause For Thought: Should You Install a ROPS Yourself' by Henry P. Cole.(PDF)
Please check your ROPS kit to make sure items are not missing. If you have questions regarding your ROPS kit, please contact the dealer or ROPS manufacturer.
Disclaimer: National ROPS Rebate Program staff members cannot provide technical assistance or advice; these types of inquires should instead be directed to your local equipment dealer or the ROPS kit manufacturer. If you need assistance locating a dealer, or connecting with a manufacturer, National ROPS Rebate Program staff can provide this information.
