    Lightbulb Tools Attached to ROPS? (Shovels, etc)

    Wondering if anyone has done this. I know you can get a small tool box but I am wondering if anybody has attached a shovel or any other tool with clamps of some sort to the ROPS. Would like to see pictures if you have.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    I have my extras on a rear 3 point carrier. But others have.

    Yes and one of the products used are called Quick Fist clamps.....

    https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/6...web_6460344011

    Also, there is a product available from a GTT supporter for this type of tool carrying on the RoPS and there are pictures and he sells the clamps and devices to hold the tools.

    I also think something new is under development by other supporters and vendors on GTT so stay tuned for those announcements.

    I put mine on the Quick Hitch

    I put my tool holders on the rear quick hitch. It keeps them farther from my head in case they come loose.

    If you're not worried about a little clanging, you might consider just mounting a piece of 4" PVC to the ROPS to hold your garden tools. I did something similar using the receiver hitch on my itty bitty tractor.

    Yup and I copied you. I also added a Koplin chainsaw mount to mine that works well too.
