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!”
This RhinoHide tractor canopy greatly reduces 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.
Unlike other tractor canopies, each RhinoHide removeable tractor canopy is made from HDPE, which means they’ll bend but won’t break. This ROPS canopy will fit virtually any roll bar up to 42″ wide (brackets for roll bars 42-45 1/2″ wide are available on request) 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. While this is basically a universal tractor canopy, unfortunately, it won’t fit machines with round ROPS structures.
These tractor canopies come in black only and can’t be painted, they’re 37″ wide by 45″ long and weigh 33 pounds.

RhinoHide Tractor Canopy For Comfort and Ease of Use

RhinoHide canopies are great to have in the hot summer months. It’s your basic tractor sunshade, a tractor roof. It keeps the operator much cooler and out of the dangerous rays of the sun. Plus, a tractor canopy acts as a tractor umbrella, offering some protection from unexpected rain storms.
But a canopy can be in the way and subject to damage much of the time, especially if the tractor is being used in a tight space or in wooded areas. They also tend to take a beating when facing forward on a trailer moving at highway speeds.
As you can, imagine, a removable tops for tractors 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 Tractor Canopy Has Eliminated All These Issues
The RhinoHide Tractor Canopy is made of HDPE. That means it is extremely durable and flexible. And it’s also 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. Later, easily lift it off when you want to fold your roll bar down. You can remove it to haul the tractor, or when you’re headed to the timber to cut wood. Then easily replace this handy tractor ROPS canopy when you need it again. It offers the best of both world, it’s both light AND durable.
All You Need to Do Is Drill A Few Holes
Now, having sung the praises of the RhinoHide canopy, let me point out there is just a little bit of work in the beginning to get the canopy mounted. 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.
You also need to note that while the ribs add strength to the canopy, they can pool a little water. When parking your tractor outside you may want to park on a grade. Or simply release the pins and empty the water from the canopy if the tractor was parked outside in rain.

Finally, here’s a word to the wise if you decide to trailer your tractor with any canopy. Driving down the highway can churn up a tremendous amount of wind resistance, and vibration can loosen the clamping knobs. If a canopy comes off on the highway it can create a dangerous situation for other drivers and do serious damage that’s not covered under warranty. If you haul your tractor, remove the canopy or put a strap over the top of it to keep it in place. We want our customers and others on the highway to stay safe!
