    That turned out very nice.

    Now that is snazzy. I'm starting to mock-up my unit this weekend.
    Build the mock-up in wood, cheap and fast, and then do the metalwork.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    I agree... the shabby looking wood that my father-in-law got a good laugh out of is the first step to a solid 4 or 6 point FOPS/ROPS to make my lil 3005 a safer mini-ROW tractor. I understand the physics of the situation enough to properly size the materials, mounting points, and hardware. And I trust my welding skills.

    Came across this thread looking for FOPS design ideas... nothing better than dragging up old threads!

    The sagga continues... I bought a Kioti DS4510HS and have a verbal agreement to sell the LB1914 without the cage. Now the transfer of the cage must begin!

    I have an appoinment at my counsin's metal fab shop in January to finish the job. However, since the hood on this tractor tilts up I'm going to have to do a traditional FOPS with front uprights tieing into the loader towers.

    Lol... lots of thoughts and plans... at least I got plywood on top shortly after that pic was taken, in time for summer shade.

    Almost cut some pieces of tubeing for the frame over the weekend but Christmas lights took priority.

    You did a great job of fitting the cage to your new tractor.
