The fold-down canopy eps (Easy Protection System).

Safety always takes priority at Weidemann!

Since 2009, it has no longer been permitted to deliver any farm loaders with roll bars, since the European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) in addition to the existing ROPS protection (Roll Over Protective Structure) also requires a FOPS protection (Falling Object Protective Structure). According to this directive, the operator must not only be protected from the machine overturning, but must also be protected from possible falling objects.

That is why at Weidemann all models from the 11-series to the 17-series Hoftrac series are fitted out with a permanently mounted canopy as a standard. However, if you still want to pass below through clearance heights of well below 2 metres, the permanently mounted canopy is usually too tall.

The Weidemann solution: The fold-down canopy eps (Easy Protection System)!

Optionally, all Weidemann models from the 11-series to the 17-series Hoftrac series can be fitted out with the fold-down canopy eps (Easy Protection System). Just like the standard permanently mounted canopy, the eps of course also meets the current European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) according to ROPS (roll-over protective structure) and FOPS protection.

The video shows how the eps (Easy Protection System) is prepared for a low clearance height with just a few simple steps.

The eps (Easy Protection System) is available for the following machines:
