 NEED A BOX

Anybody know where I can buy a metal box to bolt on the front of my new tractor to carry a chain saw----chains---etc..
I suppose I could build one-----but would ptefer to buy one.
Perhaps I can have one made here------but getting things done here takes a long,long time around here Laughing out loud

THANKS

Never thought about what my four were made of, only their dimensions. One is wood that I made (sits on the hood), two are metal toolboxes, one's a plastic toolbox. Many stores stock them in all sorts of sizes.

Chainsaws have various handles; I hang mine from a simple hook.

I would want it removalbe as it will be damaged over time on the front. Most install one behind the seat and there could be bolt holes there already. But look at tool boxes. Simple heavy ones. Better will be ammo box.

Skip,

We use a sort of holster, think of a scabbard for a sword, mounted (in our case) to the upright mount for the FEL.

It would be easy enough to make one up out of plywood and mount it somewhere safe. I agree with Kenny, out front's not a great spot. Maybe you can mount it to the ROPS with rad hose clamps and some rubber. a bungee cord around the handle to keep it bounce-proof is a good plan too.

Best of luck.

Thanks Murf--been tryin to figure that one out for a week or so.
Hummm--will have to think bout that. Perhaps I could do as I have on ATV. I took a 8" 2X8 ---Sawed it in 1/2 --thickness wise---removed the thicknes & width of the chain saw blade & bolted bak together.

I'm goin down to the carport to have a look at the ROPS rite now----ya got me thinkin---yup

Well just had a look at the ROPS------Yup---Thats where it is gonna go. I will make it out of wood ---easy for me & I have plenty of wood around here left over from various jobs. Also some metal from the dumpsters ( I grab every bed frame I find there---good for welding )
I guess I wanted it mounted on the front cause a friend has one on the front of his tractor & he keeps saying while pointing to my front bumper ( mounting plate )-----" ya need to mount a box there etc.".
I did have one made out of thin metal mounted on the front of my Yanmar-- ( no ROPS on it )---It did not last long with all the bouncing Laughing out loud.

Thanks for the informative replies ---

Hope to start building one tomorrow ----Soon as I draw a plan

If you want a scabbard why don't you just buy a plastic chain-guard and use that?

A plastic scabbard is hard to mount----& not very strong the ones I see ---My holder is way better & stronger--
Besides I need to carry chains, cable & snatch block, peve, gas for saw, and a few small tools-----Thinkin I need a box ---I do.
But thanks for the suggestion--
