Well, it’s been a few months since we last talked about the new 1906 ROPS system that is coming down the pike. We have been very, very busy and are currently working on the design and testing of our new 1906 compliant ROPS system for wildland fire apparatus. We plan to introduce it at FDIC in Indianapolis this ApriI. Our booth number is 5230. I will share with you that, and judging by the number of orders we are booked this past month, it is quite apparent that a lot of our customers are not really too excited about the cost of the ROPS and don’t really want it. We have even had a number of people that dislike the idea of ROPS so much that they are thinking about redesigning their apparatus. So, if you want to get a high quality unit, that does not have ROPS or the added cost of it, we are taking orders right up to the deadline, December 31st 2015.
