    Default BX25 Full Cage Rollbar

    Has anyone built a cage for their BX25? Doesn't look too awfully hard.

    Perhaps build off the Canopy Frame (#1133) and or customize...Sure would be a nice piece of mind...

    Perhaps make it so it is easy to remove as well...

    A cab / cage would be nice where you could remove the sides in the summer time. Do you have some idea what you would like it to look like (another tractor with one perhaps)?

    Actually I am not considering a cab, a roll cage I am considering, regarding
    what it might look like, clean, functional, painted same as ROPS . I own
    a metal tube hydraulically powered bending machine BUT, I think the
    same material as the ROPS would "look" best. I need to ponder more.

    The kubota l35 and john deere 110 tlbs both have smaller tubing for the fops and bigger for the rops. I'm going to put a fops on my 1026r due to my frequent tree collisions while mowing.

    Be 100% sure it is removable.
    I've never mess with a BX, but on the L2250 I had to split it in half to replace a hi-lo shift fork.

    I just have to ask why. A roll cage is designed differently for different results. If you have ever been in a caged vehicle that rolled you would understand the differences. If you are worried about rolling down a hill build it tall so the tractor cannot go totaly upside down. If you build it low the tractor will keep rolling over untill it reaches the bottom.

    If you drop the left or right front wheel into a hole, inadvertently,
    perhaps while backfilling a hole, the BX25 will teeter todder into what
    one might call a catastrophic life threating failure. Said cage can &
    will protect a mans torso and cranium from crushing forces enough to
    decapitate and or "crush "."

    Of coarse if you are tooling around a finished estate w/ a MMM hummin'
    and hoping you get done in enough time to wash the MMM before dark
    you need not worry. Those of us who push the envelope and "Go For It"
    as in digging a hole big enough to bury the entire tractor and occupant
    want, and need, more.

    I was road building with the dozer in a fairly high wind. a sapsucker damaged, but still living, tree I wasn't even messing with let go about 20' up. I wouldn't be here if it was only equipped with ROPS. I'm not sure I'd be here if it happened while I was in the pick-up either.
