    I think you could make one pretty easy with a piece of C channel.

It is your loader, and your car.. just saying

    I keep my BX23 inside my pole barn with my rv stuff. Pulled the battery, keep it on a trickle charger as I dont use it through the winter months. Got a walk along snow blower to keep both the drive ways clear.

    I am using a tarp building this year- shelterlogic over gravel/tarp/plywood for floor. Stays dry. Tractor is plugged in. I used to cover just the seat and steering wheel against the rain and snow. I debated building with wood- but this was quick- going up on the weekends- 1 person operation.

    Kicked out the son-in-laws CJ7 out of the garage and tarped it and installed my l3400.

    Both of my B's are in a cement floored, tight and dry barn. Some of the attachments live in 3 sided, gravel floored run-in sheds. This stuff is just too pricey to subject to the elements on a full time basis.

    I live out in the woods in Michigan, populated by huge populations of gnawing critters that scurry around year round looking for food and some place to build a nest [ with close access to lots of wire and stuff to chew on and taste ]. So, I keep anything that I don't want ruined in my 40 by 80 pole barn... which I strive to keep a 'critter free zone'.... I was also brought up to keep stuff in 'ready to go' shape, and barn storage helps me rest more worry free at night... not bothered by long dead ancestors trying to lecture me as I try to sleep... [ the family curse.. ]

    This is my Bx2360's new home (14x32) along with its attatchments. I got some Harbor Freight furniture dollies 1000lbs rating and mounted them to 3/4 plywood sheets for FEL and BB to be able to roll around to store and attatch easier.On the plugger I was able to mount casters to the bottom of the three stands

    Being in the market for a new shed myself (not as big) did you build it yourself or was it a prefab? Do you have a door in the end to drive in and would it accommodate the taller Rops of the BX25 (84.3")? Did you do anything special with the floor to handle the weight of the tractor? What did you do for site prep?

    It looks real nice and plenty roomy for all your gear.

    It was prefab did'nt get door on end, had to get folding Rops for a Bx25 did'nt realize when I ordered it a Amish style roof is a little shorter than a A frame roof but I do have more loft space. Floor is built like a house with 16" floor joist 5/8 plywood on those and 5 4x4 post running the whole length of it to rest on blocks.Just cleared out some pine trees and cut stumps down to ground level.If you can go bigger than you plan you can always use the extra space I was gonna get a 14x28 and glad I went 32!!!!
