ID:	559217Just received 6 implements and the thought of leaving them outside is killing me. What type of storage rooms or sheds or buildings have you guys come up with for storage. The tractor is garage kept but no more room for the implements. Pictures would be great. Thanks.

    And that doesn’t show the grapple or 6 ft finish mower or ballast box.

    I'm in the same boat that you are.

    If Mama will allow it, look into getting a "Shed in a Box" from Lowes/Menards/Home Depot. They aren't the most attractive things in the world, but it would keep your stuff out of the weather. That would be the cheapest, quickest option for you.

    I've come to the conclusion that I HAVE to get something built this year. Even though I'm on 5 acres I'm kind of limited to where I can place one and it will be close enough to the house that I want it to look good. I'm leaning towards a "Skid Shed" as I'll be able to do everything myself as it won't require concrete, etc.

    This is NOT mine, but it's kind of what I'm shootin' for....

    This belongs to a guy on another tractor forum. I believe it's 16x20 and he paid about $10k to have it built on his property. The floor joists on 12" on center and the floor is double 3/4" plywood. He is able to drive his 35hp orange tractor into it, although he doesn't store the tractor in there.

    Short of building a climate controlled structure to store your implements, your implements will always be "outside" so to speak. A non climate controlled structure will see the same variations of hot, cold, humidity, etc as they would outside. Just build a lean-to that is deep enough to keep any falling/blowing moisture coming through the open end off the implements.

    I have the same dilemma, some of mine are on dirt, three trailers are on dirt, etc. I would like to get a slab poured and a three sided metal building installed - this way they would be off the ground and somewhat protected from the elements.

    Some of the guys around here are buying two shipping containers and place them side by side (about 12-15 feet apart) with an awning of some kind that covers the area between the two containers. I think they are selling the 40' containers for around $3k or something like that in our area.

    Most have mine have been sitting unprotected on the dirt for 10 years now and the paint still looks pretty good. The only thing I keep indoors is the backhoe attachment and tractor, it sure would be nice to have a huge storage shed though.

    I have a 20x60 barn but it is full since we keep our vehicles in it. We don’t use our pavillion much anymore so it has turned into my tractor and implement storage place. I just keep everything on pallets which keeps it off the ground moisture plus makes it easy to move stuff with the forks.

    I'm in the same boat as well. I'm working on a pole barn, but it will be a while. I try to rationalize it by remembering that the implements I bought at the dealer were all sitting out in the elements for who knows how long, so they must not see a lot of harm in doing that.

    I feel your pain. When I got the 3520 it barely fit in the "old" Deere pen and was forced to build another that the first lady approved of since it was closer to the house. I took me 3 years to finish it but she's happy and my tractor and attachments are delighted to call it "The Deere Pen"

    I'm planning on building a 16' x 24' lean to off the back of the garage this summer but my FIL who has farmed it his whole life always tells "they're just implements, as long as you keep the tractor under cover don't worry about the rest". I get that but would still like to have my stuff under cover.

    We set up a 20'x22' metal storage building on a smooth concrete slab for tractor & implement storage. Implements without their own wheels are on caster wheeled dollies. The smooth concrete allows easy movement & compact arrangement. The chipper base got modified for it's own casters.
