    Default John Deere 650

    I have a John Deere 650 Diesel. It's a pretty good tractor, does most anything I want it to, but it doesn't have a beverage holder. Without a beverage (beer) holder you can't get much done... or at least it seems that way. Where would be a good place to mount one? I would like to position it so it doesn't interfere with getting on or off the tractor, or the hydraulic controls... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

    If you need a holder for beer, leave the keys in the house and just make noises when you sit in the seat. I don't mean to be a smart --- tractors and juice don't mix.

    What he said...

    I set my water jug on the floor board of the 1050 next to the tool box.

    Just get one of those hat's that holds a couple of cans, that has the hoses for straws. A couple of light beers isn't too bad. It would keep both hands free.

    Hi...

    Got a plastic one made for use on boats... it moves side-to-side like a swing... so it stays level in at least one direction...

    Screw mounted it to the lower front face of the left side ROPS upright...

    kinda like this one...

    I purchased the tractor about a year ago, and it doesn't have the ROPS installed. Sounds like a great idea tho. Any other idea's out there on where to install it? Sometimes it's just fun to have a cold one and a cigar while you're scratching in the dirt. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Sounds kind of like something Gatorboy might say!

    No brother in Florida.......

    Scratching in the dirt is about all you can do with a 650, it's somewhat underpowered. I can't do anything in a hurry with it (and that's OK) I just need to figure out where a real good place to mount a beverage holder would be.

    What about the famous "Chalkley" cup? What ever happened to Mark, anyway? Is he still around?
