    ROPS Basket/tool carrier

    This was posted in another thread and caught my attention. I need some type of attachment like this but don't really want/need a tool box. Plus on my 2520, especially with my larger replacement seat, there just isn't much room.

    This would be perfect for me. But yes, a bit expensive for what it is. But in it's deference it is made entirely from aluminum and powder coated. Also the price includes shipping.

    Just wondering if anyone has purchased one and their thoughts.

    I did a pretty good search to see what other vendors might carry it (including GFP and Mutton's) but only found it available from this vendor (which is at least a Deere dealer so gives me some confidence).

    So before I spend the money I am trying to come up with an idea of something similar that I could simply mount with U-bolts. I can't find any baskets like this. I did find a heavy duty tool box with lid at Northern Tool but don't want an enclosed box or lid. Even looked around at a plastic (milk) crate type basket that would be rectangular and not be more than 10" wide (front to back). With the dimensions on the Tractor Tool tray it wouldn't affect my ROPS in the pinned down position or the top link of my 3-point hitch (with iMatch installed)

    I need something to put a few tools in and am seriously considering ordering one of those manual tube holders and mounting it to the ROPS.

    I couldnt take the interruption in my rear sight line with the one in the pic. All of my attachments are behind me.

    Good point about the sight line. But being it only sticks out ~10" from the ROPS and would be mounted with the top equal to or less high than the top of the seat back, it might not block much.

    This is a very good point. I have a much smaller toolbox mounted in the same place and is sometimes a problem.

    What about a plastic Soda flat? Something like this:



    You could easily drill it, it's roughly the same size/shape, and might be easily bolted on. Just have to find a distributor who will let one go or an unattended grocery store dock.

    I added a basket to my 3pt Omni transformer hitch. Most of the time I have it on the tractor.

    I did the same thing to my home made version of the Heavy Hitch/Omni hitches.

    I wonder it you could add a small receiver bracket to a 3pt Quick Hitch and put a small basket on it........
