    Default Important Feature I Forgot

    Love my new TN70, but while shopping, I overlooked one important feature that I wish I had on my new tractor......A CUPHOLDER! How could I forget???? How could they ship a new tractor without a cupholder? Guess i'll mount one of those plastic car cupholders on the wheelwell....but i'm disappointed <g>. Bushhogging on a cool fall morning without my coffee travel mug by my side will just not do.......

    That is something I have been going to put on my 65 for over a year now but never get around to doing it. Let me know how yours turns out.

    Davehern,

    Check out the 'Chalkey Cup" thread in the tractor customizing section. You will likely have to do a search as it is an old thread.

    I'm thinking the best place for a cupholder would be on the floorboard against the fender on the left. I tried the right side but it gets in the way of the diff lock.

    I know what you mean. I just got my new TN70 tractor last Friday and like it very much so far.I think the lift o-matic feature on it is really handy when you get use to it.A cup holder is the only thing I want to add to it so far.The first job I did with it was mowing also, because I wanted to try out the new Bush Hog Squealer that we had delivered with it.

    I'm thinking the spot is right behind the lift levers on the right, mounted against the wheel well. You can sit a big coffee mug (with sipper lid) there now, but no guarantees it will stay. I took a small bungee cord and strapped it down the other day, but that's a pain to deal with and drive at the same time....&lt;g&gt;

    Hey, great lead! This is a great idea....I can make a magnet base for my favorite big mug (with a little super glue!)
