Added toolbox

Postby Drfting1 » Sun Jun 02, 2019 2:50 pm

Added a "custom deluxe" toolbox today lol.... Was going to put an original on it, but wanted something to keep tools dry... Had an old m-60 ammo can laying around.... Coupled rubber washers and used bolt that holds the floor pan down

Thanks!... Actually glad I posted those pics, didn't realize I was missing the nut on the rockshaft bracket ... Had it off couple months ago... Seems I forgot to put lock washers back on

Cool. May have to steal that idea for my non fast hitch cub. I have a tool box on my fast hitch cub that’s mounted on a fertilizer hopper assembly with the gear assembly taken off. Works good

I think it should work ok. Lid doesn't go completely up, hits the seat, but opens enough to get any tool out of it.

Hi,
The Cub looks good in your pics.
I think the bracket on the rear rockshaft was used for the Cub 189 Plow. I don't know if you have the plow.
Below is a pic from TM Tractor. :)

Yep ... Have most of the plow setup except for the left side plow (working on it). It's a very handy little bracket for other little stuff... Oh and thank you for the compliment on the cub

Make sure you drill holes to vent. I made that mistake before. I put a fat 50 for a toolbox on my super m and had some cheap tools and good chain rust up well after pulling a few logs in the rain.

The ammo boxes are airtight and watertight. So if the tools are dry they will stay dry.
