 Tractor Toolbox

I went to the NH Dealership this weekend thinking I would buy a toolbox for our new TC-40. I really just wanted to buy the regular rectangular box that can be setup on the back of the tractor. When they rang up the price, it came to $54.95! All that for a black plastic toolbox with a NH logo molded into the box lid. I told the dealer thanks but no thanks. As he walked back to the stock room he said under his breath, "I got mine at Wal-Mart." I went to Wal-Mart and sure enough, there was a toolbox, red but nearly the same size for $3.00!

Enough with my preamble. Has anyone bought one of the Deluxe toolboxes and installed them on a regular Class III Boomer? I was wondering if this toolbox that has the cupholder is worth it. If not, I'll shell out the $3.00 and get the Wal-Mart version.

Thanks.

I had the same problem with a box for my TC29...I couldn't quite justify the factory box, but you've got to have something. I made my own bracket and bolted it on the ROPS in the same place as the factory box, then bought an open top carrier for $5 that fit the bracket. I guess if you had to have a cup holder, you could always velcro one on somewhere.

Another suggestion from the wild side.
Seems to me that the Kobalt colours at Lowes are similar to the NH. Would a Kolbalt metal box mount on the tractor? Might look sharp.

I think surplus ammunition boxes work pretty well, but they come in a limited number of colours. Somebody thought grenade boxes are about the right size. Despite the banter, there are some good ideas in this thread. Velcro implements might be good.

TC33:

My tractor did fit fine in the garage with inches to spare all around. I have some hill I mow sow I had them widen the rear tires to give some more stability. As a result, the width of the garage became suddenly important! Regardless, we have had no trouble getting it into the garage. So far it is a great tractor and I look forward to many years of use from it. I'll post a picture of the setup in a couple of days. Thanks for the other information on the toolbox.

Jim
