OUR COMPLETE ROPS CERTIFICATION PROCEDURE STEP BY STEP

1. ROPS Certification Precheck: If you send pictures of the damage to your machine, our engineer will determine if your machine can be repaired and certified. Our experienced team of highly qualified engineers will perform a review to identify the damage of the machine. Then we’ll let you know if certification is an ideal option or not. Also, we will inform you if the entire Cab needs to be replaced or not.

2. ROPS Repair and On-site check Our engineering team will schedule a time that works for you to visit and supervise the repair. During the ROPS repair procedure, our Engineering team will monitor the welder making repairs and forward all necessary pictures to the engineer for final approval of repair.

3. Approval From Engineers: Then our experienced Structural engineer will check up on the photos and they might call for more ROPS repairs with approval if needed.

4. ROPS Re-certification Onsite: After having the final approval procedure from our Structural engineers, you’ll receive a brand new and quality metal placard of compliance that’ll surely come with the safety certificate provided by our licensed engineers.
