    Default Canopy question ?

    My dealer wants a small fortune for a top. Just need something for the rain.
    Anyone try these before ? Has good reviews but seems too cheap.
    Any recommendations ?

    If you are only interested in something to shield you from the rain, perhaps you may find this website interesting? GEMPLER'S - Outdoor Work Supplies, Spray Equipment, PPE & more

    I would think that a 37" X 45" might be to small for a 3005. I have a 45" X 58" on my 3320 and it just barely keeps the rain off my seat and controls. I got the "TractorSunshade.com" model through my Deere dealer and it appears to be robust enough to survive a rollover. If I remember right it was around $600 installed.

    I will have to check but I think they make three sizes.

    Are you planning to keep your tractor for awhile.. is it a long-term investment for you?

    If that's the case; get something that's gonna hold up! And is a good fit for your ROPS.

    The good ones can take a lickin' in the woods!

    Have you checked here: John Deere - Parts Catalog

    You can compare the different models that Deere offers - and the prices - with what your Dealer has quoted.
