Here is what I'm using at the moment. But they require access to welder/cut off/metal. Bent the hoop on the front with a large conduit bender(electrician tool)

They do well for me. The hoop on the front protects the hood/headlights, which have been destroyed before.

I should also mention they make a great spot for pushing each other out, push starting a dead tractor, hooking a tow rope to, or 2 guys can pick the front/back up and get it unstuck. One on the best mod's I've made.
I've seen multiple tractors get flipped down a hill, or in a race, I hope this helps.


Best one is I'm standing on the side of a large hill, in the woods. My kid was up the hill some. I see something, and here goes his tractor flying down the hill, and he is chasing it. He got off to take a piss and forgot to park it... He didn't catch it, but not for lack of trying. That one destroyed the steering wheel, rear rim, and gas tank.
