ROLL-OVER PROTECTION SYSTEM (ROPS)

FORM NO. 98210012 07/02/07

This manual contains assembly, operating, maintenance and safety instructions for your ROPS. Before Installing the ROPS or operating a machine equipped with a ROPS, carefully read these instructions completely. The ROPS will reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury in the unlikely event of a tip over although the system cannot protect the operator from all possible injuries. By following the operating, maintenance, and safety instructions, you will prolong the life of the machine and the ROPS, maintain its maximum efficiency and promote safe operation.

If additional information is needed, contact your authorized equipment dealer or distributor.

Keep this manual with the machine operator’s manual for future reference.

IMPORTANT:

1.Do not cut, drill, modify or repair ROPS in any manner.

2.Always replace a damaged ROPS.

3.Always use the seatbelt and ROPS together.

4.Frequently inspect roll bar and seat belts for damage or loose hardware.

5.Use extreme care when working close to fences, ditches, trees and on hills.

6.Check overhead clearances carefully before driving under any objects.

7.Do not leave operator’s position while unit is running.

8.Do not carry riders.

9.If ROPS is a folding ROPS, ROPS should be in the upright position and pinned when operating the machine.

WARNING! This ROPS is certified for use on machines with a maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 2300 LBS. The GVW INCLUDES the weight of the base machine, operator, fuel, ROPS, and other attachments and payloads. When attachments are added, causing the GVW of the machine to be more than 2300 LBS., the ROPS may not provide adequate protection resulting in serious injury or death. Use caution when installing attachments and DO NOT EXCEED the GVW rating of the ROPS.
