    My 737 arrived today.. its still sitting the the crate at the dealer, the grass is early here this year and it came just in time for mowing. It has the ROPs on it, does anyone take them off? or do they cause any clearance problems?

    We have a lot of low branched trees here in florida and not many hills, my friend has the same mower and almost flipped his by getting hung up on a low branch.

    I don't know what that is above me about Canadians....


    As for ROPS....On a Z they really aren't needed. ZTR's have been around for close to 20 years without them. Nuff said.

    If anything sticks out from my mower more than my seat (higher or wider than it) it will cause an interference problem for me. I duck under branches on a daily basis that brush the top of my seat. Even with the foldable ROPS, they're still entirely too high.

    Even with the ROPS bar folded down on the newer Lazers, the overall height is still 6.1" higher than my older LC Lazer! They're 9.3" higher than an pre-ROPS air cooled Lazer!!!

    And with the ROPS folded back, the overall length increases 8.5"!!!

    Anyone weigh these ROPS bars when they remove them? The one off my old JD F-935 was pretty heavy!
