How the ROPS (Rollover Protective Structure) Rebate Program Works
The ROPS Rebate Program will rebate 70% of the cost of purchasing and installing the ROPS (Rollover Protective Structure) up to $865 maximum rebate. This includes the cost of the ROPS (rollbar, ROPS with Awning or ROPS cab), shipping, and installation charges.
Apply on-line or call the ROPS Rebate Hotline (1-877-ROPS-R4U or 1-877-767-7748) for registration and pre-approval. Click here to apply. You must be a resident of the state in which you are applying for a rebate and the ROPS you install must be certified. There are no other qualifying conditions. Pre-approval is required only to ensure that funding is available for the rebates. Rebates are available on a first come first served basis.
ROPS Rebate Program staff will research the type of equipment needed, provide estimated costs as well as sources for purchasing ROPS and send this information to you. Participants may order the ROPS from whichever source they choose as long as the ROPS are SAE Certified.
When ready to make your purchase, you must re-contact the ROPS hotline staff via email or by phone (1-877-767-7748) We cannot guarantee your rebate until you confirm with us where you ordered your ROPS and what the estimated cost is. It is at this point that your rebate money will be reserved and an approval letter will be issued to you confirming your participation in the program.
We recommend that you have your rollbar professionally installed but you have the option of self-installing. In this case, a "before" and "after" photo is required as your proof of installation.
Only one tractor per farm can be rebated during a program year.
The NH Farm and Rural Education Foundation is responsible for issuing the checks for the NH ROPS Rebate Program. They require a social security number or Farm (Employer) ID number in order to do so. This information is not taken over the phone or when applying on-line. This information is only required if you decide to follow through with purchasing and installing your rollbar. Upon completion of the installation, a W-9 Form (standard form - name, address, social security number and signature) would need to be submitted along with your receipts and/or photos. 1099 Forms will only be issued to those individuals receiving a rebate of $600 or more.
Upon submission of receipts for all expenses and proof of installation a rebate check will be mailed to you within 30 days.
