    Again, very nice fabrication.

    Thank you very much. When I purchased our kubota 5740 last year I fabricated a similar one for it but this time I went with a bumper/shackle center design with quad flash L.E.D. oval strobe lights in it. I use the FEL tubes for tow slings and they are kept in there by machined aluminum caps that I made. You'll notice the caps on the FEL, they are black. Never enough room on a tractor but this system works for me














    For the longer items I needed to carry I went with these rubber clamps and this is how it looks.

    I can't find the photo's right now, but if you have the ballast box.......which you should..........stand up pieces if 4 inch drain pipe , in the corners, before you fill the box with concrete. Instant tool holder
    So... are you walking behind SWMBO?

    I don't have a Ballast Box yet. I don't have anything on the front of the tractor. When I make one, I'll definitely put some drain pipe in the corners.

Just need to find a box to fit there. I usually like to carry a putty knife, knife and a few hand tools when mowing around the farm. That baler twine sneaks up and wraps my blades and I have to cut it off. Went to net wrap last year, my twine problem is slowly going away.
    I have a friend who put plastic pipe on the ROPS. I'd like to see some photos of other's installations. We have some great ideas in this community.

    Good morning,
    This is what we did for our 2520. I wanted something that mounted behind the seat yet did not create an interference with the seat or the 3 pt arm. My preference would have been plastic but I found this generic metal toolbox at our local Fleet Farm.

    I did paint the box as the green on it was closer to an Oliver green vs JD. Not a big deal. The installation was quite basic in that I used an existing hole on the rear frame and then similar to the extinguisher mounting, drilled a hole on the left hand side and used a #12 self tapping screw. Once it was secured to the frame, I added a rubber mat at the bottom for less rattle. I did need to add some washers/spacers on the SMV sign in order that there would be no interference with the opening and closing of the lid.

    The toolbox measures 16 x 6 x 6. The main reason for the toolbox was to have a place for my chain, my kubota tow strap and a few tools (channel locks, vice-grip, & screwdrivers).
    I love what you did. I have less space between the SMV sign and the back of the seat than you do, but I could shift a box to the right side. Thanks for sending the info.

    I don't have a FEL, but if I get one, I like the ideas I see on your ballast box.

    Ballast box has scrap iron in it, tray about 8" down from the top is old galvanized grainery door. chainsaw sleeve on one side & tubes for axe, shovel, rake, etc. on the other side.

    Your chain tray on the front looks like something I could do. The frame in the front has room for 4 suitcase weights, but I don't usually have them on the tractor. I don't have a grille guard, so a tool box on the front frame would act like a bumper.

    I don't have room for the other ideas, but I like them.

    Pixguy - looking good! How much weight do you figure your ballast box will give you?

    I keep a rake, peevy, or iron bar in the loader torque tube or the grapple tube. My not so fancy tool box sits on a shelf I put across the fenders and supported by two pieces of light angle sandwiched on the rops

    I like that hitch attached to the ballast box. Great idea!
