    Chain/tool box - where do you haul your chain?

    Installed my KBOGHS today, now trying to figure out how & where to affix a box to the 3046 so I always have a chain & some tools with me.

    Had an old chain box on the back of the WD45 years ago that served as a catch-all.

    What are you using (besides the bucket) to keep your chain handy?

    (Hopefully this is relevant enough for the KBOGH forum - if not feel free to move/delete/chastise etc.)

    I have 3 grab hooks on the back and one on the bucket that I hang the chains on.

    IMHO,, a box on a tractor is just a place to destroy tools.
    I have 40 acres, and use tractors quite a bit,,
    I never find I need a tool to work on a tractor, away from the shed.

    If you want to carry a screwdriver, and a pair of pliers,,,
    the instruction manual holder can be re-purposed for that.



    We did use a post hole digger a couple weeks ago, and broke some shear pins.
    BUT,, I would have never had a 7/16" deep well socket, extension, and ratchet on the tractor.
    Actually, I needed TWO of those to tighten the shear pins.

    I carry a chain that is heavy enough to replace one suitcase weight.

    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I have a big toolbox that sits in the top of my ballast box extension. It keeps everything out of the weather. It holds 4 different chains of various lengths, a few oblong slings, a KBOGH BallDog, a brush puller and various hitch pins and clips. I figure it weights about 70+ pounds which is just more ballast for me. :-)

    Father time? Does that mean you're getting to old to ride your bike? You could donate it to me, I'm still young enough to ride.
