I traced an area a bit larger than the chainsaw bar on one of the pieces and sandwiched it between the other two using white glue and some small (#8?) bolts. The bolts likely weren't necessary.

    The holder mounts using the two existing holes in the loader mounting bracket.

    Before gluing I installed a carriage bolt for the top connection to the loader bracket and drilled a hole opposite it in case I needed to access the bolt. That likely wasn't necessary and I should have just glued the bolt in the wood.

    The bottom connection is an ordinary bolt that goes through all three pieces of plywood (i.e. the chainsaw bar is completely above the bottom bolt).

    I have attached a cropped picture that may help.

    I see the chainsaw's bumper spike is resting on the case. But I actually grooved the back piece of plywood and the bumper spike fits over the rear side of the case with the main body of the saw resting on the holder.

    I got the idea for this from tornadowatchranch and the ideas for using plywood from other posters on TBN.

    So answer a question for a noob: What do I need in my toolbox on the tractor? What's in yours?
    One thing I forgot to mention as an essential in the toolbox...or on the tractor somewhere... BUGSPRAY, 100% deet preferred. I hate using the stuff but after a few hours in the seat everyday, or splitting wood or whatever you're doing, that stuff does come in handy.

    I thought I would add my toolbox to the mix. It's a "boater's waterproof box" from the boating section of my Walmart. I mounted it to the spot where the owners manual used to sit.

    So far it has been great and everything stays completely dry!

    Using storage designed for boating actually seems like a pretty good idea, especially since the one in your picture is narrow and more likely to fit behind the seat as opposed to something like the waterproof Stanley tool box that I ended up with, which just barely fits between the tractor seat and backhoe seat.

    Looks good, I like the big size.

    Nope...that is the CT122 model. That model is too small for under hood fuel tank. Always been that way.
