Default Rops program

So I talked to the people at the rops program and have been put on the waiting list. I guess there funding is low right now. My cost would be $98.00 for the rops once they get to me.

Do you have the contact info for them? I haven't heard back from my local dealer in 4+ weeks now about it.

Iím on the list also, but went ahead with the retrofit and paid out of pocket. Do they reimburse for out of pocket expenses?

I think the program pays for it. If you paid I think your out of luck , but you can check the link out and call them.

Just to bump the thread: the parts guy at the local dealer said he'd heard of the ROPS program but never ordered one before. But he called Kubota on my behalf and ordered one for my l245DT. It took over six weeks to arrive but I picked it up today. Total price (including shipping and tax) was $233.47. It came with seatbelt, stickers, etc. The guys at the dealer were super-helpful (and I've never bought much there except an occasional O ring). Berchtold Equipment in Santa Maria, CA.

I used the program on a 1974 JD back in ~1998. I don't recall the price but it was a significant savings.

Yeah, I think the Rops lists for somewhere around $750(?). Of course as the parts guy pointed out, it's the simplest, plainest Rops you can get (it doesn't fold and isn't easily removable once mounted) but... I'm really happy to have it on the tractor. I had a B series (which did have a Rops) before this L series and I rolled it on a hilly pasture. It's not an experience I want to repeat but I certainly don't want to repeat it without protection.
