I'm a new Kubota owner (BX2230) and was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for carrying a few tools on the tractor where they're out of the way. Perhaps a Cresent wrench, pliers, screwdriver etc? Not the complete tool box but just a few basic tools for in the field adjustments etc. Thanks.

I never have figured out a way to successfully carry tools on my tractors. The only thing that seems to work is to incorporate some storage into your rear ballast system.

I've been looking on and off for a nylon or canvas type tool bag that could be either strapped to the front weight bar or hung over the seat back. Those seem like the two best places on my machine. Maybe a tool belt could be rigged up for this purpose.

My Kubota L3130 has a beautiful factory tool box right behind the seat. It even has a cup holder built in. It has plenty of room for the things I need to change shear pins on my rough mower. Shear pins, hammer, a crescent & combination wrench. I can stand on the mower and easily reach everything.

In most cases you will probably just acquire the tools that are necessary over the months.

My JD 4310 has a toolbox on the left fender which is adequate for a screwdriver, ratchet and a few sockets but there is no way it will hold a big honkin crescent wrench and a can of spray lube.

We used to cap one end of a piece of ABS or PVC pipe and mount it vertically on the FEL frame facing the operator, the one with the controls if it fits keeps it out of the way climbing on & off. Any required tools were rolled into one of those canvas pouches often used for a set of wrenches which then slipped down into the tube. If you dampen the canvas with some WD-40 it seems to last longer and it helped keep rust to a minimum. Another end cap to keep out the dust was slipped over the top to keep out most of the weather, but don't forget to drill a couple of vent holes to let condesation, debres, etc., escape.

Note, I said we 'used to' do this, we discovered over the years that it din't matter what you crammed in their, you still didn't have what you needed. They did work well for holding a pair of gloves and a rag to wipe the inevitable grease of your hands though.

Best of luck.

The problem with any tool box is that there are tools or stuff you want to carry that won't fit. There is always a prybar too long or a chain too bulky to fit in the box. Heck, I've got a big SnapOn tool cabinet in my garage and my 250 lb torque wrench is too long to fit in it.

Hey kwschumm, How did you up-right your tractor when you turned it over in the picture?

I called a tow truck Smile The guy had a big truck with two strong winches. He held it upright while I drove it down the hill, then hooked to the rear of the tractor and helped pull it backwards up the hill while I drove in reverse.

I use an old tool belt. It has a hole on the backside at the top where a belt would normally go. On my tractor there's a hole on the right side of the FEL frame that faces rearward...a match made in heaven. The toolbelt is not too big but there's room for channel locks, wd40, a screwdriver & other things nice to have along for the ride. Now I just need to figure out a drink holder.
