I don't have a set for my tank, but I wish I did, there are some lawns in my area that I would feel more comfortable mowing if I had a set.

The Z(illion) D(ivot) 331 came with it. Always run with it down due to branches, but it does make it VERY hard to drain the can while filling the tanks.

I have mine on but folded down. It works really great for pruning low branches on trees.

I have mine on my machine still. It stays down most of the time b/c of low limbs. If I am servicing a property that has a steep incline its there waiting for me. At the same time, its where i located my after market lights so when I cut in early a.m. or late in evening hours I will have light. I wouldnt buy a mower that didnt have it included. Thats showing you which mower companies to run with.

I cant imagine the ROP weighs more than 30-50LBS, and its not like it causing wind drag.I would leave it on.

do most of the badboys come with rops? Most of the ones I have seen don't have them along with cub cadet. Do you guys with those mowers ever come into any close calls and wish you had them. I hate how when the rops are folded down they rattle right behind my head. That gets very annoying.
