Tool box mount.

Recommended Posts

DaleC
Does anyone have a neat idea for a little tool box to hold extra pins, pliers, wrenches, set screws, fuses, keys, ect. I am thinking of getting one to mound behind the seat, but I know that I will eventually just dump it out on the ground one day when I raise the seat up. Then there is the problem of having the room to let the seat raise all the way up with a small tool box on the back. I have two Bees I want to do this for. Any suggestions for a better way!

Well not being that familiar with bees I looked at your picture and the first thing that came to mind was the arm rest, can you unbolt the pad and make a small wood box for both sides to mount between the pads and the pad mount?

What model of B-series? Here's what I did with my Big Ten. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/images/2_into_1/rear_finished.jpg[/img] You can read about the mounting bracket for the rear light and tool box down near the bottom of this page: http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/2_into_1.htm Here's where I mounted one on the HB-216: [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2//attach/Kent/hb-216_left2.jpg[/img] These toolboxes are probably the single handiest modification I've done. They're great to carry around a few extra hitch pins, pliers, etc.

BTW, to solve the problem of dumping things, I lock them with the little locks you get for luggage (something like 99 cents for two of them), then put the key on the tractor's keyring.

I have two chrome ones. One came with the 1989 replacement engine (10HP Magnetron) that was originally in the B-210 (now in the Big Ten). The other came on a 16HP ring-gear start engine now in the B-210 (I call it an HB-216, since nothing but the hood and dash are original)...

Thats a nice set up you have on them tractors Kent...I like that bracket you made up in the big ten...may have to do that on my Landlord...
It's a permanent solution to the "droopy armrest" syndrome... and easy to make.

Look in my profile. I mounted one on my fender of the 3112. It came from an old Locke lawn mower. It has a padolock hasp on it and I keep the lid closed with just the hasp. When I dump everything out, I'll put a clip on the hasp.;););)

Kent, That is quite a diary. I was thinking about a lower mount, but the way you have yours mounted makes a lot more sense and it is real complimentary to the whole appearance of the tractor. I too, have the droopy arm rest on the Big Ten. I will have to use that bracing technique on them as well. Thanks for pointing out all the little things you did that makes for a much more lasting result. Now to find a tool box!!

Dale, If you don't find a tool box locally, here's a couple of different sized ones that are on ebay now: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2583269964&category=41482 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2583234596&category=41482 I believe that this seller usually has them in his ebay store.

Kent, the 2 eyebolts on the back of the HB-216 picture, what is their purpose?
The eyebolts are the top mounting points for this: [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2//attach/Kent/surrey_wide.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2//attach/Kent/surrey_mount2.jpg[/img]
