How do you store your tractors?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,Has anyone ever built a tractor stacking system ie a shelf or something so you could park another one underneath.I thought about this the other day and did some search's and only found these for cars. I think it would be cool to make up something like this to save space and/or to work on changing blades ect.I don't think a tractor would be so heavy that you could'nt use some kind of manual lift of some sort.I belive the car one's are hydraulic or electric lift.If you could find a jack system like on the front of a 5th wheel travel trailer. Anyone built something like this?I am thinking of trying to do something like it.Any Ideas? mowerman1193

There is a "lift" for working on garden tractors that is self powered. It is a platform with a rounded frame on the rear, and works much like the tilt bed trailers. When empty, it looks like a pair of ramps attached to a frame. You drive the tractor up the ramps, and it over centers to a flat platform. Should be fairly simple to build, and could be built high enough that one tractor could be parked underneath. Haven't been able to find one on the web. I believe I saw these in a trade magazine. Pat

I remember the cost was outrageous for what you got, but it sure looked like a handy unit. I remember figuring to build one, and it seems that new steel was going to run between $80 and $100. One of those things I never got around to. Pat

I have seen racks for storing snowmobiles one above the other. I just checked my current snomo mags and did not see one in there. Another place to check. Good Luck! Mike S.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
