    Your tool box looks great. Putting angle iron on the ROPS is something I didn't think of.

    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.
    A ballast box may be the perfect tool box for you. Since you don't need the added weight(due to no FEL), you could use the entire box for tools.

    Thanks, It's hard to figure with all the pipes deducting cement mass, but I'm figuring on about 600lbs, which should be fine for my scut when snowblowing uphill.

    I hope you are not too tired from all that walking.

    I think you are right about just making a box for the back. I was planning on making a box anyway, because I need to take the trash down to the road every week. I'd like to make a box that would attach to the 3 point hitch so it could be lowered to floor level, the trash can wheeled in and secured, lift the 3 pt and then drive away.

    When I'm not carrying trash, I could carry all the long-handled tools I need.

    Where do you get the pins that I would need for the sides of the box to attach to the hitch? I never looked at Tractor Supply, but I'll take a look tomorrow.

    Those are category 1 lift pins. TSC has them for maybe five dollars each.

    Maybe you need a "Carry-All". The frame is available at TSC for $129. After that you are on your own and will find many neat versions here on TBN. Mine is of the simple variety.
