    Default carry-all for back of tractor

    Hello,
    Has anyone here made a carry-all for the back of their tractor. I am interested in seeing pictures and also what size and shape of steel used in forming the carry-all. You can buy the steel carry-all from Tractor Supply....it is made from 1/4 x 2.5 angle iron...it will hold 1000lbs. So with the weight of the wood box that I would build, I could carry maybe 800 lbs. I am going to use it to carry bucked 20" firewood logs back to my splitting area. I can weld so I could make the steel part and then build the box part that would be bolted on. Just kicking around the idea and would like as much info as I can get.

    I bought the TSC one then bolt 5' 2x8 treated planks on then put 2"x2" angle iron over the cut ends to keep the lumber from warping. Works great. Right now I am using it for garden irrigation water supply, have 2 55 gallon barrels strapped on it to haul water and it handles those fine completley full, that's 880 lbs.

    Build your wood rack out of light tubing may safe some weight.

    I made a carry-all using the TSC carry-all based on a video I saw at Wilson Ultimate carry-all at Wilson Outdoors Ultimate Carryall - Part 1 - YouTube .

    The modifications I made were to add racks for my pole saw and weed-wacker, a tool box rack, and a water barrel rack (not shown) to place a filled plastic 55 gallon drum on it for a counterweight. I also put 2X6 skids on the bottom so the metal didn't dig into my concrete.

    I made this one to use, then remodeled it for tractor cruises. Started out with a $5 one from a farm auction, homemade one similar to what TSC sells. Tore off the old planks, cleaned up the frame, made a new outer frame & used 1/2" CD plywood. The rails are made with 1" plastic conduit, more for hand rails than heavy use. ~~ grnspot

    What about a set of pallet forks. You could stack would on the skid or get one of these. I have been stacking all of my wood on skids. It keeps it off the ground and you can move it with the tractor.

    MFWD,

    I am on a similar path/ I NEED 1100 lbs of ballast, and a place for my saws & tools, AND ability to carry firewood out of the deeper parts of my forest.

    I have a thread here... http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/b...-tool-box.html

    Here is the homebuilt carryall I bought used...

    I hope we are both successful in our search!

    I made a similar one. Yours has some nice features I would like to copy. I added two receivers welded to the frame for vises or towing.It's used mostly as a mobile work platform. Coupled with a small generator , a very handy thing.
