Expanded Metal Rock Guard
After two broken rear windows in the same mowing season, Lance VanGennip of Marble Hill, Missouri decided heíd had enough. The result is a permanently mounted rock guard that sits close to the cab so itís out of the way.
  Lance, his wife, and two young boys run a 150-head cow/calf operation spread out over 800 acres in the hill country of southeast Missouri. Itís an annual chore to mow the pastures to knock back any weeds and especially the red cedar sprouts. The soil in many parts is thin, with limestone rocks near the surface, so itís not uncommon to clip one which sends the chips flying. The screen stops the big chips that can break a window and still allows an unobstructed view of the mower. And since it sits close to the cab, it doesnít have to be removed when using the tractor with other implements.
