    Universal mount

    I am not without my phone when I am on the tractor as I have business to take care of via email and phone. I like having the phone mounted to the tractor and did with my Droid X. However I swapped phones and I am not going to spend $$$ on another car mount that is proprietary.

    I did some searching for a universal mount and the only thing that I liked that I felt would grip the phone with all the bouncing was from a company called RamMount. They use a standard 1" ball and you can configure using several mount options from handlebar clamp to suction cup to screw mount.

    They also have all kinds of stuff that attach to the ball like a cupholders, cameras, etc.

    I thought it was cool.

    Talk about timing..... Thanks! I was just trying to find mounts for my phone and radar detector. If you've ever been inside the new jeeps, you'll understand. Absolutely no room. Got 2 on order!

    Mount came today. Wanted to install it to the mount I attach the snowblower chute cap cable to. The base was a little large so you can see I chucked it up in the redneck lathe and turned it down. Threaded a 1/4-20 stud into it so I could mount it.

    Should work great. I have 12 volts right there so can put it on the charger.

    Good choice! We use a lot of Ram mounts to attach things to forklifts, everything from fans to scanners to 15 lb RF computer units. They make some tough stuff.

    Had a customer just today, ran the forklift into something. Broke the RF unit off the Ram mount; the mount was just fine.

    So, how do you guys hear them ring? lol I just let mine go to voice mail. I figure if it is important they will leave a message. When I get off I check the phone.

    Well I can usually hear it but not always. But a lot of times when I mow I use headphones and listen to music. When the phone rings it mutes the tunes and I can answer it. But I use mine more for email than phone. The phone I just let go to VM most the time.

    And its a safe place to store it too. I have been tossing it in the cup holder. Last week I drove up to my parents and loaded up some brush on the trailer. I had a soda in the cupholder so was holding the phone and tossing it up on hood when I would stop and load up stuff. Well forgot about it and when I was heading home I realized it was gone. So had to walk all over their acre looking for it. Just glad I did not run over it ! I knew it was time to get another mount.
