    Never used EMT before. Is that frowned upon in "the industry"? For my use, it will work OK. Not much stress going on there.

    Also, I forgot to say that the EMT can rotate freely in the straps... so...

    I am curious about the hydraulic issue with the blade angle adjustment. Doesn't the factory valve (four connections) supply both raise and angle adjustment?

    I had the exact Carslile AT101 (24-12-12) on my Scotts GT2554 garden tractor/mower. Because my mower was 2wd and I had some steep hills, I needed an aggressive tire. The AT101 was perfect. They were...

    This sounds like a great idea.

    For those that have done it, how did you get the expanding foam all the way in the far ends of the ROPS? The straw on the can is only 1 foot long at most.
