What is the Rhinohide Canopy?
The Rhinohide Canopy is a universal shade canopy system designed to fit tractors and zero turn 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 from harmful UV rays.

What separates the Rhinohide from other canopies is its incredible strength, and that it can be mounted below the top of your roll bar. In addition to its toughness, the plastic shell is lightweight and removable. And every single part is Made in the USA.

What is a ROPS?
ROPS stands for Roll Over Protection System (or Structure). This is the steel roll bar  commonly found on tractors and zero turn mowers.

Will it fit my ROPS?
Our canopy will fit any square/rectangular steel tubing ROPS less than 46″ wide. We have different U-bolts and L-brackets to accommodate the varying spans and tube steel widths, so it’s important you measure your roll bar before ordering to get the correct parts for your machine.

Our canopy is not compatible with round tube ROPS (though some customers have found a clever solution by using exhaust clamps).

Can I paint it?
The plastic our canopy is made from is called HDPE and 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 is UV protected and will not fade. And when you scratch our canopy it own’t show, as the plastic is black all the way through.

Can I trailer it?
You should always remove your Rhinohide Canopy before trailering your tractor or mower. It only takes 30 seconds and keeps everyone safest.

Please do your due diligence before you purchase. We have a universal system that fits any rectangular ROPS that we’ve come across yet. But, it is up to you to ensure we ship out the right hardware to fit your ROPS.

If you decide to return your canopy, you have 60 days from the time of purchase. And you will not be refunded the credit card processing fee or the initial shipping cost. And the returned shipment will be at your expense.

*Note if you have drilled any holes into the Canopy system, or modified it in any way, it is no longer returnable.

What if I get it and it doesn’t fit my machine?
In the case that you receive parts that don’t fit your ROPS but are the pieces you selected, you will be responsible for additional purchase and shipping charges to receive the proper parts. If it is our packing mistake, we will cover the costs.

Never amend your ROPS system: this includes drilling into, cutting, or welding. The Rhinohide Canopy and any other accessory attaching to your ROPS is design to clamp around your ROPS bars, not fasten into the bars themselves.

How hard is installation of the Rhinohide Canopy?
You can install your canopy in about 45 minutes. It helps to have two people, but it is accomplishable with only one and some clamps. You’ll need a drill, some wrenches, a 3′ level (optional), and a clamp. Watch our installation video to make the process easier.

Why are there two holes in the L-Bracket?”
The L-Bracket ships with two pre-drilled 3/8″ holes to make it universal. This means there is no designated left or right bracket, and you can place them up, down, left, right, forwards or backwards and they will still work.

You only use the pre-drilled hole that becomes your top hole of the bracket after placement. The second hole (which will become the bottom hole) needs to be drilled by you through the bracket and into the lower steel pin to set the exact angle that accommodates your ROPS. We recommend setting your canopy level or slightly tipping down in the front to assist with branches running over the top.

We sell a backhoe kit that provides an extra set of lower mounting hardware so that a permanent attachment point can be kept on the ROPS facing the rear to cover the backhoe. When operating the backhoe, just loosen the knobs and move the canopy from the front to the back and you’re covered with shade.

On the outside chance that you have two identical machines or two machines with similar ROPS dimensions, you can use the Backhoe Kit as a Multi-Machine Kit and swap your canopy from one machine to the other.
