    [quote=One of the fellas in another thread had used some 4" pvc pipe mounted down in front of the brake (sst) or hst pedals to hold chains, and I kinda like that idea at the moment for those, unless I can come up with something better.[/quote]


    Can you point us to that thread? I'd like to see pictures of the PVC pipe. Great idea!

    That's really a good idea. Thanks for the pic. I suppose a 6" pvc end cap (might need something larger though??) on a strap would make a nice lid for that to keep water out. I'm going to build one of those as soon as I get the tractor.

    I used 4". I didn't put a cap on top but i put one on the bottom and drilled a few drain holes in it just in case. Tractor stays in garage if not being used, so shouldn't be an issue.

    Here's a photo of my chain holders and chainsaw holder. I can't take credit for the concepts. I got the ideas from earlier TBN posts.

    Thanks kco; yes, that is the picture I had seen earlier. I had considered something like rabidracin's design, but the thought of lifting and dragging the chains out over all the sheet metal was disconcerting, not to mention that these old shoulders aren't very happy anymore when lifting things at an arms length.

    I used to work with an old Massey, and just kept the chains on the floorboard by my feet. They were handy there, easy to get to and not much chance to damage sheet metal, but unrestrained. This keeps them in a similar location while making sure they stay there...

    here is a link to the one I did. I am not on the home computer so don't have the pics. Beware that if you do the same chainsaw mount you will have to remove it prior to removing the loader.

    Good luck

    Thanks tornadowatch. It was your ideas that I copied.

    My chainsaw mount must be different because I don't need to remove it to remove the loader.

    What did you use for the chain saw mount? I can't make it out from the photo.
