This RhinoHide tractor canopy greatly reduce the temperature of the operator area and protects your tractor seat from the sun. It also minimizes your risk of skin cancer and keeps you from getting soaked in a rain storm.
RhinoHide canopies are made from HDPE, which means they’ll bend but won’t break. They’ll fit virtually any ROPS up to 42″ wide with mainframe beams up to 2 1/4″ by 4″ and can be mounted on angled roll bars. They’ll also fit a zero turn. Unfortunately, they won’t fit machines with round ROPS structures.
These canopies are black, 37″ wide by 45″ long and weigh 33 pounds.

Tractor Mike: “I’ve always wished my tractor had a canopy but since I operate in the woods a lot of the time and would tear it up on limbs, that’s not been an option…until now!”
Tractor canopies are great to have in the hot summer months. They’ll keep the operator much cooler and out of the dangerous rays of the sun. They also offer some protection from unexpected rain storms. The problem is, a canopy can be in the way and subject to damage much of the time, especially if the tractor needs to go in a tight place or into wooded areas. They also tend to not do well when facing forward on a trailer running at highway speeds down the open road.
A removable tractor canopy could solve those challenges, but past models have been expensive, made of breakable plastic, and way too heavy and bulky to easily remove. The RhinoHide canopy though has eliminated all of these issues.
The RhinoHide canopy is made of HDPE, which is extremely durable and flexible, while also being light enough for one person to attach and remove from the tractor. Mount the Rhinohide when you’re brush hogging in the summer to keep you cool, and easily lift it off when you want to fold your roll bar down, when hauling the tractor, or when you’re headed to the timber to cut wood. It offers the best of both world, it’s both light AND durable.
Now, having sung the praises of the RhinoHide canopy I’ll tell you a couple of disadvantages of it. Because it’s designed to fit ROPS structures up to 2 1/4” x 4” x 42” wide (MEASURE BEFORE ORDERING), you do have to drill six holes when mounting it. Two holes in the brackets and four in the canopy and it’s on. If you’re concerned about having the mechanical ability to put it on, watch “Canopy Don” and me put one on my tractor in the above video.
Also, the ribs add strength to the canopy but they can pool a little water. It parking your tractor outside you may want to park on a grade, or simply release the pins and empty the water if the tractor was parked outside in rain.
The RhinoHide is the first canopy that is tough, affordable, and easy to remove from the tractor. It’ll fit any brand of tractor and, as you’ll see by the gallery, it’s also a nice addition to your zero turn lawn mower! If you’re wanting to save a few dollars and don’t ever want to take the canopy off, a “fixed” version is also available. Freight to the lower 48 states is $50, regardless of how many canopies you order. So, if you want to save some freight, get one for your tractor and zero turn at the same time, or see if your neighbors need canopies and we’ll ship them all on the same pallet.
