Randy and Kenny asked me to post this and I've been a little deliquent, busy doing 'stuff' with the 2320! Here is the toolbox/mount I made for my 2320. First, a background of "design rules" for my project.

1. I wanted to stay away from the right side of the machine as I plan to get power beyond at some point (which as I am told, at least, mounts to the bracket on the right side).

2. I did not want to drill any holes in the machine (so use existing holes only).

This did limit the size of the toolbox I could install, so I went with a Plano 114-002 13" plastic toolbox. My dad scored me a 2'x2' piece of 16ga CRS from his shop for free...hard to go wrong for that price :thumbup1gif:. You can see the box and mounts in the pictures below. The mount is 2 pieces: The part on which the toolbox sits, and the bracket toward the end that attaches to the horizontal part of the frame to the left of the top link retainer. I cut the 16ga CRS with my grinder and a cutting wheel and bent it on the press break at the model shop in the lab at which I work. Also, to reinforce the bottom of the box itself, I made a plate for it and ran the bolts through to the brackets I made.

I agree that this was well done. The only thing I'd add is a black nylon hole plug from the hardware store to cover the hole in the ROPS for a finished look.

JDfun,

Beautiful work. Nice result. Looks like the work of an entreprenuer in the making.

I wonder, though, why do you want a Power Beyond kit? Because if it is going to be for a backhoe, well, the toolbox might be in the way just a little bit.

Good point on the backhoe...I was not thinking of getting one anytime soon and was not considering that the primary reason for getting the power beyond. I have some other ideas for which the PB would be handy.

The next mod is going to be protectors for the hazard lights on which I can mount forward/reverse worklights. Could not see dropping $50 on the ones from JD.
