Apparently, there has been a recall issue for the ROPS mounts on previous series Cat minis, I don't believe there is a recall for the C series minis. My dad was getting his worked on today, they sent a tech out to do the required work and it seems everything will be good now. By the sound of things, the mounts on the machine to the ROPS are cracking, not the ROPS itself which would manifest an entirely new ROPS. By law, ROPS cannot be welded or tweaked at all. Dad said there were no cracks or any issues with his machine but it has been upgraded. Just thought I'd throw this out there, see if anyone has heard of this.
