    Default Good source for canopies

    Anyone have a good source for a canopy? I want one that is lightweight, but will stand up to a gazillion tree branches. So far, I like the looks of Femco Canopies. They aren't too far away, and sell direct.

    I was also wondering about installing worklights under the front/ rear edges.

    Look at the Firebird Bucktop canopy for your JD 4310. See attachment for a view of mine on my JD 4710. They are lightweight (about 30lbs) and are secured to the ROPS with 4 U-bolts. You can buy them simple and plain or souped up with radio/stereo systems. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    This is a tough piece of fiberglass Mike. I'm real happy with it. The only damage I can see occurring is if I run the thing into a low hanging branch or something similar. Here's another attachment showing the Bucktop from a distance.

    Thanks Soundguy! I think they look GREAT on a NH like yours, just not sure on the 4x10 Deere. But it sure is bomb proof. I am definately keeping it in mind.

    BTW - great looking Jubilee, you must be a proud "dad":

    I've had the same top on my JD 4600 for almost three years now. I've gone through stuff higher than the top, without any damage. I'm very satisfied w/ my Firebird.

    Haven't seen the diamondplate canopies.. do you have a picture. I bought the fiberglass one when I bought my NH tractor.. busted a rear corner some backing up to hook up equipment.. plus the branches continue to pull off the edge liner.. for the $450 it cost.. 3/4 inch plywood would have kept me in the shade for a lot cheaper.
