Mr. Egg ROPS Demonstration

This demonstration is targeted to youth ages 8 to 16. Using the Mr. Egg Demonstration provides an opportunity to provide understanding on the center of gravity and stability baseline of the tractor and the value of the ROPS structure to operator protection. The demonstration can be used to discuss factors leading to tractor rollovers.
