I removed the air tanks from the rail mog and got to looking at how they were mounted to the CASE ROPS. They have heavier mounts than the factory FOPS has! So the ends would be perfect for anyone wishing to make a FOPS for their CASE mog. I can cut off the angle iron, so it would be easy to ship them out. If anyone is interested in the mounts let me know.

FOPS - Falling Object Protection System, for trees and rocks and debris etc. Useful with overhead lifting, mining, forestry etc.

ROPS - Roll Over Protection System, for when it tries to go horizontal. Useful with conditions with side hill operation, soft ground, limited visibility to other large vehicles, mining, forestry etc.

Case MB4/94 had them as F-DOT mandated equipment becasue they were classed as tractors and tractors (and all other equipment) must have them. In this case the FOPS/ROPS rack also served as a very handy place to mount the hydraulic air compressor and storage system since all in the whole setup was probably still below the height of a high cube rail stack.
