    Default ROPS and Doors

    Just a reminder - That ROPS that fit through the overhead door in the fall with an inch to spare may not now!! Must be a bit of frost in the driveway - no worry - removal of that lower piece of top door trim seems to help.

    Rather than worry about the things you want but don't have, be grateful for the things you don't want and don't have.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    It will fit, you just need a little more speed.

    I had the opposite problem, the ROPS fit through the door, but the door just did not go all the way up.

    I have a hint for you - it's called a shed roof addition. You'll be all set. Perfect opportunity. Just sayin'...

    Might I recommend a chainsaw or a sawzall? Either should work.

    Actually, I posed the tractor in that picture for a gag photo a few years ago when I opened up that end of the barn to install a second overhead door. The attachment is how it looked when I was done. That's my cat "Gizmo" in front of the new door.
