    Dolly for FEL and blower

    Weekend project. I finished my dolly for the FEL and the blower. They work amazing. I was worried about how the FEL would work out , but it is the bee's knees. So much easier now to load them and get them out of the way.

    Very Nice. More ideas for me lol.
    Will you attach the two together? Or how hard is it to line up both without getting off the tractor?

    VERY NICE!! I especially like the two-piece idea for the FEL.

    Yeah, I could fab something like that up for me... in my dreams!! For me, doing something like that out of steel isn't a possibility as I don't have access to a metal break. Any opinions here on how well wood would hold up for something like this?

    No need to attach them. Casters lock
    Works amazing. I just set them up from outside the cab and push handle down until the dolly position is perfect. Easy Peasy

    I just had a local fab shop make the supports. I drew them in CAD and printed a dimensioned drawing. Cost $200 for all 6 supports. Made out of 3/8" thick 2-1/2 steel stock.
    3/4" plywood over that, that I wrapped in outdoor felt.

    Makes it soooo much easier to put on/off and move around out of the way.

    Gotcha. I'm new to a tractor. And I've never even taken off the FEL. I was picturing driving up to it and put the bucket down and having to get OFF the tractor to move the one in the back to the right position.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    Three moving dollies from harbor freight have worked well for me. Two under the bucket and one under the parking stand. Not nearly as nice as Gooch's, but it gets the job done.
