What is the Rhinohide Canopy?
The Rhinohide Canopy is a canopy system designed to fit tractors and mowers with Roll Over Protection Systems (roll bars). It is designed to get you out of the sun and into the shade, not only for comfort but also for the protection of your skin.
What separates the Rhinohide from other systems is its incredible toughness. We have yet to have a customer report a broken shell.
What are ROPS?
ROPS stands for Roll Over Protection System (or Structure). This is the roll bar situated just behind your seat commonly found on tractors and zero turn mowers. This is where the Rhinohide Canopy attaches to your machine.
Will it fit my ROPS?
Our canopy will fit any square/rectangular steel tubing ROPS. We do have different U-bolts and L-brackets to accommodate the varying spans and tube steel widths.
Not compatible with round ROPS legs (though some customers have found a clever solution by using muffler clamps).
Can I paint it?
You can, but HDPE (the type of plastic our canopy is made of) simply does not hold paint well. The trade off is a shell thats many times tougher than Fiberglass, ABS plastic, or vinyl/canvas. Our black canopy dye is UV protected and will not fade.
Can I trailer it?
Yes. If you are running the older Model S (Stationary), we have tested that at 60 miles per hour if installed in a level position or slightly leaning down in front (with the low point of the canopy facing forward on the trailer to create downforce).
The Model E (Easy On/Off) should be removed or you can put a tie-down strap over it.
