EASY Off/On Model (E)
This Rhinohide canopy model will allow you to remove the canopy shell in less than a minute with no tools required. Just loosen two hand knobs and lift push the canopy up until the struts separate from the bracket support pins. Reinstallation is easy, just lean the canopy struts on the support pins and pivot up & let slide down.Then re-tighten the clamping knobs. Shell & struts weigh only 24#.

$50 when shipped with an Easy model, $65 when ordered & shipped at a later date.
The Backhoe kit will make it possible to remove the canopy shell from its normal position and install on backwards over the backhoe seat. In just a couple of minutes.
This same kit will also make it possible to mount the canopy on a second machine, very simple if your ROPS are the same width. If different you can accomplish by first removing the canopy shell from the first machine, unbolting the two struts (four 1/4" bolts), installing the struts on the second machine and drilling (4) new holes in the shell and reinstalling the 1/4" bolts. With wing nuts, this can be accomplished without tools. So if you can live with an extra set of 3/8" holes in the shell you have doubled the usefulness of your Rhinohide Universal Tractor /mower canopy. You can install the Multi-Kit on Multiple pieces of equipment, just mount a Kit on each machines ROPS that you want to mount the canopy to.

IMPORTANT SAFETY BULLETIN
NEVER TRAILER YOUR EASY MODEL WITHOUT FIRST REMOVING IT FROM THE TRACTOR OR PUTTING A TIE DOWN STRAP OVER THE TOP PREFERABLY FROM FRONT TO BACK DOWN THRU THE STEERING WHEEL.
The reason being is that the two clamping knobs can loosen with use & the air flow could lift the canopy shell off the pins. Trailering the tractor backward would even make this more likely.
