 cup holder

I went to see the new BX series and noticed they have a cup holder.I would like a cup holder on my B2100. Anybody have any ideas about adding on a cup holder to a B2100? Where to buy- where to attach to tractor?

Think I've seen such things at low-end discount stores. With all the safety discussions around here, having a cup holder on a tractor doesn't seem like a very good idea. Seems sort of surprising that a manufacturer would add one.

Yes, a lap full of hot coffee at the wrong time wouldn't be good.

But there's a general issue. My wife comments from time to time that she appreciates the amount of concentration she sees in me when I'm on the tractor. I just figure that anything that detracts from having my full attention and both hands available to operate the tractor isn't a good thing.

That is not a cup holder, it's a loose screw, extra key, hitchpin, wd40 holder

Speaking of loose screws, has anyone ever heard of anything going wrong from someone sipping some ice-tea while cutting 5 acres of grass?

Other interesting thought, you can not operate a machine with complicated controls unless both hands are free anyway. Don't know anyone doing excavating with a coffe cup in one hand and the lever in the other.

Cutting grass on a hot summer day, bet your back side I am putting a cup holder on my 790! I'll try not to spill any, or run over the family pet while sipping my cool drink.

(don't get all hot over this, I am just making lite of the cup holder issue) I am sure you people will go crazy with safety and deaths by drinks and cup holders....

Out here in southern california you see water jugs on a lot of tractors but the operator has to use some commonsence about when to take a drink. Personnaly I would not use a machine that I could not keep my water close by. You can make cup holders out of PVC pipe or you can go to a boat store and get some real nice ones that will not spill your drink even if you have to use the ROPS.

In the course of our work (primarily building golf courses) this was a constant issue. We resolved it by means of a comprimise, each tractor carries an insulated water cooler, BUT, it is out of reach. It is mounted on the left fender, next to the ROPS, facing outwards, this way the operator must stop the unit and get off to have a drink. This is not as much of problem as it may seem, experience has proven that about the time an operator needs a drink of water, they are...well, finished, with the last drink...Laughing out loud...This way water is available when desired, without the concerns of distraction, etc. While this may not be a perfect answer for the average user, I find it hard to believe that the 'average user' has so much work to do that they can't stop for a drink before it's done either. Then again, if we're getting cup-holders now, maybe I can suggest to Kubota that they offer a washroom in the cabs on upcoming models, after all I do have several women operators now...and maybe a microwave would fit up there next to the radio...a TV would probably solve the 'Bob Villa' or yard-work question...and hey, a wait a minute...a phone & laptop would allow me to check the CTB while I get few hours in on the yard-work....Yeah, ok....Laughing out loud

When I was farming we never kept water jugs on the tractor for a couple reasons. First, the tractor puts off alot of heat and the water will warm up very quickly. Second, when you ride for hours(8-10) it is a good excuse to stop, get off the machine and stretch your legs while you get a drink. On the other hand cup holders are kinda neat.

Randy pretty much sums up my feelings as well. And my apologies to David for really getting off track under your post. But with all due respect to those who posted otherwise.... If having a drink on a tractor, while "maybe" moving at a brisk 2-5MPH in a field seems dangerous in your mind. Doesn't it concern you that auto's have cupholders? Do you ever use them? Smoke?, Use the Phone? Look for directions on a map? It would seem to me that driving a car at 60mph while passing multiple cars/trucks going the same speed in the opposite direction only a few inches/feet away would be more of an issue to discuss here than what has been brought up. Or are these things OK in our cars because we've been doing them for years? I'm not trying to start a debate of what we do,should, shouldn't do while operating machinery... but in the end, I think the solution to all of this is a good dose of pure "COMMON SENSE".
