ROPS

Postby jmont54 » Thu Sep 23, 2004 12:49 pm

Jim,
I have another ROPS protected tractor and it does give a little more comfort level to know that it is there, and I admit that when I am on my Cub I feel just a little unprotected which hopefully will keep me out of MAJOR problems.

Have you heard of a ROPS design including seat belt attachments for the Cub? With so many Cubs out there, one should be designed for this little tractor.

I don't think anyone is making one and if they did and someone got hurt using it OSHA would own there Cub's and house.

Shame some company or individual does not design one and get it OSHA approved for all of we Cub owners.

Thanks for the article Jim. Being a novice with tractors, it made for some enlightening reading. I have pretty much level ground that I use my Cub on, so I try not to get myself in too deep. I did get it stuck in mud and had to ask my wife for help. We eventually got it out. Thanks again, Bob :)

The closest I have come to flipping my cub happened when I was mowing my back yard!
There is an old tire swing hanging in my back yard, left over from when my kids were small, I had bumped it out of the way with the Cub dozens of times, but this time it got hung up on one of the headlights as it bounced back against the front of the tractor.
The next thing I knew the front end of the tractor was several feet in the air and I was doing a pirouette at the same time, fortunately I got my foot on the clutch and brake quickly enough to prevent it from flipping.
I now hang the tire on a stub of a branch before mowing.

Dave,

I'll bet that was a seat clencher. Glad you got it shut down. :shock:
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

I don't have so much trouble with flipping - I just can't stay on the seat.

This spring I was mowing under some low branches along the fence row and rolled off the seat onto the ground. I was lucky and was able to catch up to the tractor (Good thing I was in 1st) and hit the kill button; but, that was a "pants checker" experience.

Need less to say - I got all the low branches trimmed.

Oscar.

Oscar, after reading your earlier post about that I decided to go trim the low limbs I had been ducking under.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
