    Thats exactly how my father and I do it. My dad wire tied his pipe to the FEL, I bolted mine on the FEL thru the existing hole.

    At first I wasn't sure of their use. Quickly became apparent. Just an 'L' shape round welded on. Can hold a lot of chain.

    I don't have need for chains all the time but when I need one, I just throw it in the floorboard of the cab up against the seat mounting. It is out of the way there and for sure wont fall off and get lost. I suppose that if I wanted to haul it all the time, I could place it behind the seat, but in doing that, I would likely eventually whack the cab glass back there and break it. Most of the time mine is stored by the door to my shop coiled up on the floor patiently waiting for me to need it for something. I have a 20 foot 5/16" and a 15 foot 3/8" that I use for tie-downs on my trailer and for dragging trees over and out. My BIL and I occasionally combine his 2 chains and mine to attach to a tree to pull it when cutting them down so they go the direction we want as most of them are hung up with each other and don't want to fall. He puts his on his bush hog and occasionally forgets that they are there. One time his chain fell into the deck hole for removing the blades and all of it ended up in the stump jumper and took some maneuvering to find the end and fish it all back out, that is after we finally found it in there. Amazing how that chain crawled in there like a snake.

    I also keep a box blade on the tractor most of the time so there are two 16' and a 20' on there. I have a bigger box blade on order but more weight on the box
    blade is a good thing anyway so it seems like the logical place for me. I'm going to add some things on the new box blade to make this a little neater, hopefully. Maybe even improve on my custom saw carrier.

    I like some of the other solutions that people have shown here. This is a great place to learn new ideas.

    I made a chain box to fit in front of the grille on the 790:

    Also carry some in the top of the weight box:
