My 2038R with the 220 loader is not expected at the dealer until later October. So in the mean time I am collecting a few attachments and accessories. The one thing I like is using the cross tube in the 220 FEL as storage, I see a lot of examples, but no info on size. Tractors with 220 loaders are few and far between around here for me to measure, so if someone knows the I.D. of the cross tube on a JD220 loader, I would appreciate that bit of information.

Thanks in advance. 馃槑

What do you store in this tube?

Trick question? :oops: Am I using incorrect terminology, such as tube???

I have seen chains or straps, things a person would use with their loader......
Then add a plug, several types out there, to store the chain inside the tube.

Most call it a "torque tube". Editing the title may get better results.

Here is a picture a customer sent, this is a larger Kubota and they use larger torque tube than JD does, but this is pretty cool:

I am trying to find how to edit the titles. Yes, I would like to know the I.D. of the torque tube on a JD 220 loader, thanks.
The i.D. of the torque tube is 3.012 inches. I carry a shovel or rake in mine.

Found 3" ones locally at Home Depot and several places online.

They are referred to as gripper plugs or test plugs.
Thanks.

Just to verify, this is for a JD 220 FEL?
Ever thought of using plugs on the end and carry chains inside of it?
It is a JD 220R FEL that came on my 2019 2038R. If I am going to need chains for a task, I just throw them in the bucket. I use a shovel or rake much more often than chains.
