    Default x728 quick hitch trunk

    I have an x728 and when working in the yard, would like to have something to carry tools, chains, chain saw, etc.. I have seen things like a trunk, but I have not ID'd anything that would work on the quick hitch I have for attaching the powerflow bagger. Is there an attachemnt I can use with the quick hitch that would allow me to carry stuff around when I remove the bagger - especially something that attaches to the quick hitch? Thanks folks.

    What about the rear bucket option?
    Do they make it for the 700 series?

    I made one some years back using 3/4" marine plywood. It set on there like the suitcase weights. Worked good. I don't have it any more or I'd take a picture. But, I just used the suitcase weight design as a model and it worked great.

    There was a 3 cu ft tractor trunk for the Click-n-Go
    brackets that you use to mount the bagger.
    I don't think it's current production, but you may be able
    to find one or have your dealer get it thru parts.

    here are the mounting notes from the old sales manual:

    Requirements and/or recommendations:
    BM20874 3 cu. ft. Tractor Trunk is compatible with X Series and 425-455 Tractors. Mounting bundles or parts are required as
    follows:
    X465, X475, X485, X495, X575, X585, and X595 require BM20714 Click-N-Go System or (2) AM127399 Support Link,
    (2) M131215 Attaching Plate, and (2) A15147 Spring Pins. For tractors with 3-point hitch installed, the turnbuckle and
    lower arms must be removed with either mounting system.

    I have the "Tractor Trunk" as Dutch described. It's handy at times, though I haven't used it much since I got the MC-519. The little trailer for the MC-519 holds a lot more and follows the tractor like a puppy dog. If you can find the mounting kit for your tractor that Dutch mentioned, I might be willing to part with the Tractor Trunk.
