I feel that maybe I have been misunderstood here.I would never argue the safety benefits of having a ROPS, im just trying to stress the fact that if one is used than a seat belt should also be used. This being taught to me when I took the NYS tractor safety course and the fact that this is also outlined on the Hercules website. The only reason that i would not put a rops on a my fords is that they are for show and and very light chores. We do own an Allis-Chalmers with a ROPS and I am very adament about my dad using a seat belt when it is in use. This coming from listening to a tractor safety instructor tell about watching his best friend get killed when he was pinned under a ROPS from not wearing a seat belt. I suppose i will keep my mouth shut from now on.
