I have a new gen factory rops frame to mount on a 3020. there a heavy steel blocks that fasten under the near axle, below the rops. There is a beveled cut on one side of the steel blocks that I canít quite understand what its for. Anyway when mounting, does the bevel go against he axle (versus away from the axle) and toward the center of the tractor (versus towards the rear wheel)?

Just something to consider before you install your Rops.If it doesnt have a canopy it doesnt make much difference but from past experience it helps to put something between the axle housing to help cut down the noise.I have seen pieces of rubber material cut nicely that you can hardly see.I have had several with canopys and the rollbar acts as a tuning fork.Some use sand also.They look nice,might save your life,and really are cool on a hot day but the noise can be an issue.Just my 2 cents.

i dont think it makes any differance on the 3020 but tapper would face the center on 4020 as axel housings are wider

Yes Kent, I'll bet you are right as the ROPS tag says it is for tractors all the way up to a 4430. There are no 10 series listed on the ROPS (except maybe the 2510). I wonder why this would not fit a 10 series. those 20 and 10 rear axles look the same to me.

I put one on my 2520. In fact I just pulled it off for the first time to do an axle seal. The taper isn't necessary on this application. And yes- I've wondered the same thing- and I don't see any difference in the 2520 to 2510 axle/fender/mount area.
