    Storage of my implements

    I have a question regarding storing my attachments(only 2 currently). Right now I have them outside as I do not have room for them inside, does this or will this effect them or should I look into another building to put them in. If I leave them outside is there anything I should do to prep them. Attached a photo of current setup. Thanks for your insight.

    My thinking is that if you can afford to build the space to store them inside, do it. No use in depreciating it faster than necessary.

    I am kind of OCD about a lot of things - this included. Everything from my vehicles to tractors to implements is under roof at all times.

    I am lucky to have a 20'x60' barn. But of course that fills up quickly.

    Years ago we built a pavilion next to the creek for sitting and watching the wildlife. We don't do that much anymore so it has become my tractor/implement storage area. Works great - keeps the rain and sun off which is good enough.

    Maybe put up something like that? This is 10'x20'.

    Even one of the metal carports will be better than out in the weather!

    See if someone close to you builds sheds like this. Garage | Pro-Shed Storage Buildings. All you need is a level pad of gravel.

    I think this might be an idea, would have to make it 3 sided but would be the easiest. May store in my shop until I can get something together. Will have to check around and see if I can put it someones barn in the area for the summer.

    Thanks for the ideas.

    If you can get them under cover that's great, but leaving them out is no big deal. The ballast box won't need anything special, it's just a box. For the snowblower I would grease any fittings it may have and give the rest of it a coat of Fluid Film, it'll be just fine to sit outside.

    There are gazillions of implements that are kept outdoors. If kept lubed and off of the ground (even a little), they'll be functionally fine. But, UV rays are harsh- I have a very pink finish mower, that started out Kubota Orange. The previous owner had stored it outside; while it is mechanically perfect, it is aesthetically challenged.
    I keep all of mine under roof, because the room is available. If not, I'd consider aluminum car ports, if the implements are sufficiently expensive. I wouldn't worry about covering a scraper blade, but a tiller, snow blower, finish mower, etc.- it's worth it to keep them under roof (to me).

    Both the dealers I talked to when i bought my 1025r had all sorts of tractors and implements sitting out in the weather all the time. I suspect all of my implements sat out in the weather quite a bit before they became mine.

    Obviously storage buildings are a better option, but until you can swing that, I wouldn't be overly stressed about it. Blake's advice above is very good, do what he suggests until you are able to find something more permanent.
