    I also learned this trick here on TBN. Four inch dia. PVC bolted to the loader arm supports. I have chain in the left one and rope in the right one. Drain holes in the bottom.

    I've got a tray right on the front of the forklift for chains, and a trailer ball and hook for the holes in the fork tips. Keeps everything handy and out of the way. A while back I bought a bunch of ammo cans, both .30 and .50 from a surplus place, the 30's work great for keeping a chain and ratchet straps for behind the seat in the pickup. Not only does it keep everything together and untangled, having handles you can grab them and go if you need to change vehicles for some reason.

    Unfortunately I don't have any good pix but I will show what I have.. The ground is covered with ice right now, and sliding down the hill to the barn does not sound like much fun. The first is of course the tractor and ballast barrel overall. The second shows the level of the concrete inside, and you can just see the tops of the chain organizer pipes I put in. They are just some scrap 6 inch or so PVC pipe about 9 inches long bolted in by the same bolts that hold the hooks on the side on. I can only get one chain in each, and the third one just lays on the concrete of the ballast barrel. Also on the barrel are three 2 inch pvc pipes for handle tools (rakes, shovels, brooms etc.). On the back is the 2 inch receiver tube, which I use for my sprayer. I have about $100 in the whole thing, including the barrel. the last pix is an old one before I put the chain organizers in the barrel taken in 2010.

    When I got this tractor it was missing the front cross brace for the Koyker loader so I incorporated this steel box to hold chains. works ok. Also it helps to have holes in the bottom for drainage...-rhino-picking-up-blow-down
