Used in combination with a seatbelt, rollover protective structures (ROPS) have been shown to be 98 percent effective in preventing death and serious injury in the event of a tractor overturn. Nevertheless, more than a third of tractors in use today still do not have these lifesaving structures.

To help farmers locate retrofit ROPS for older tractors, Mark Purschwitz and colleagues in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture have developed The Kentucky ROPS Guide, now available online at

The new online Guide is designed for farmers, dealers, and technicians not only in Kentucky but also throughout the United States and Canada. It enables users to quickly determine what ROPS are available for which tractors, which companies supply retrofit ROPS, and how and where to obtain them.
