    Wire basket/tool carriers?

    So I recently purchased 30 ac and will be doing a TON of trail maintenance, so I'd like to be able to haul some basic tools around with me (chainsaw, bar oil, small can of gas, loppers, etc.) Let's see what you guys have come up with.

    I usually keep the roll bar folded down parallel with the ground and was thinking a wire basket type thing that sits in the area behind my head but below the upper side of the rollbar.

    This is what I came up with. It is a craftsman 19 inch tool box , bolted down to an aluminum plate. I used angle iron underneath the plate to bolt to the braces that are clamped the ROPS.

    I know it's not exactly what you're thinking of, but how about a carry all frame set up all fancy like with tubes for tools and a scabbard for carrying a chainsaw...

    I know there are picture on the forum of what I'm thinking of... Some of the guys have gotten as creative with their carryalls as they have with their ballast boxes.

    I like having the FEL and the boxblade on the tractor when I'm out working on the trails, was thinking something that kept tools at the ready, but out of the way.

    Could you mount something on the boxblade? That way it's low enough to be convenient to get to.

    Some of this is going to depend on your fabrication ability. I've seen guys that have put removable tool carriers on their rear implements, but it was all custom built and not "off the shelf".

    yeah - I can weld and can fab something up. I've thought about it being on the boxblade, but full loads sometimes bubble over the top so that could get messy. Just seems like that spot under the folded ROPS and above the travel of the 3-pt is just itching to be useful..

    Here's the one I did. A milk crate usually lives on it with gloves and stuff, a place to throw my thermos. I added a shovel holder after this thread, I think I have a picture that shows that, I'll look.
