    We have a 60" Dixie Chopper and need an rops for it. We are able to weld, so we could modify something from another brand of mower. Anybody have one they want to sell?

    One thing to look at. Are you needing it for employees? If so, if you have an accident and OSHA sees it's been modified, you may be in serious trouble. I would spend the extra money and get one from Dixie if they make one. Just something to think about.

    What he said. An injury in an accident with anything homebrew can bring down the wrath of the Feds or State. Unless it is legally required by someone you have a contract with, going ROPSless could be cheaper in the long run. Such is the legal state in the :usflag:.

    Thanks for the thought about employees. We're a family owned and operated business - no hired employees, so that wouldn't be a problem. We want the rops for safety reasons - we're in the mountains.

    You're from Elmer, NJ. That's neat, we used to live in Burlington County. I grew up in Jersey. I'll let you know if we would consider that. I'm quite sure we wouldn't come up just for that, but if we incorperated it with something else. Any way, I don't know - will let you know. Thanks

    dixie offers a few options for ROPS. personally, i think think these should be standard on all dixie choppers, exmark includes them on all their lazers so why not dixie?
