    Just by chance.....anybody have a folding ROPS to fit an 09 Bad Boy Lightning. They are an option for Bad Boy and I did not order one.... Now I need one and thought I would check on here first. I know I have seen a couple of posts where people have renoved their ROPS.... So.... just checking...

    why do you need one? Those things are more likely to kill you than save your life. Your mower didn't come them so why bother.

    $299 new, they are not much just to order new. I have a set off my 722D Grasshopper, I would give you for free, but they wont fit....

    OK....last time I checked the ROPS for my 09 Lightning was around $500. The newer models were $299. Now they are $299 for all models. Wonder if the ROPS comes with a seat belt?

    Yes they do, when you have a rops on your machine, you are supposed to have your seatbelt on at all times....lol. On the hopper we had the rops came off after tearing a blooming dogwood in half on the first yard I got, and the seatbelt got permantly buckled. I want to jump away from and have nothing to do with the mower if it actually rolled over....lol.
