measurments for a 1610D

Postby Desert Dave » Thu Jul 30, 2015 2:45 am

Hi all, I need a measurement. I've got a 1610D with Hoyes turf tires and would like to add a ROPS and canopy for some shade here in the desert. So I was wondering if someone out there has a 1610 with the ROPS and give me the height to the top of the bar. The shed I built is southwestern style with a stucco exterior to match the house. I'm hanging my head now, and admitting to you, for not thinking ahead as I type this that I kind of blew it in my design. I only have a 7 foot door height and I can't change it. Aarons Dad's 1610D resto would have been great for a measurement but I think it was sold. Anyway, maybe someone can help me out. Thanks

Many modern ROPSs fold down, but I don't know how that would work with a canopy.

I don't have turf tyres, but my 1610d measures 213cm to the highest point of the canopy.

You would clear the door by a smidgen over 1/8". That is if the door was actually 7' and the top 83.8583". :mrgreen:

According to Hoyes turf tire page your 1610 would be lower with turfs so if the rops is the same as Crump's then you ought to clear the door.

Thanks for the numbers, I'll check the opening. I know they can fold but I'm not sure if the canopy I have would be low enough. Could rig up a quick disconnect for the top though.

It might not take much fabrication to lower the ROPS height a bit. Or lower the ground tire-path at the entrance.

Good ideas Alan, reworking the ROPS is doable but the shed is sitting on concrete, for a long way. Not sure if I understood the post of 213CM. Glad he got back to me with it but I think he has AG tires and had a canopy he measured to. Guess I wasn't clear which, doesn't surprise me as age creeps up, but just wanted it to the top of the ROPS bar. I did roll up the sectional shed door and 7 foot is all there is max. Funny thing with life's learning curve. I've been building things for 50 years and still have that problem with seeing the forest for the trees :mrgreen:

Your reference to "213CM" left me behind. But that's happening to me more and more these days.

You'd need to get and properly attach a seat belt too.

You could attach a vertical post to the outside of the seat-back and make a canopy for it. Or wear a broad-brimmed hat. And drive so as to not roll over.

You're right Alan, could do a post but would kind of like to add a ROPS. My property is flat but there have been a few times.......it surprised me. I'd kind of like to enjoy retirement longer :wink:
