Fire Extinguisher

Postby feg7846 » Thu Feb 11, 2021 9:52 pm

I know probably a lot of my friends out there have a fire extinquisher mounted on your cub. I have one that is just laying by seat on the floor pan.
I am looking for a good place to mount mine. Give me some ideas, if you will, on where some of you have mounted your extinguisher..

Thanks to my many knowledgeable friends on this forum. This forum makes owning a cub a real joy because you can always find the help that you need.

I have 6 classic tractors and zero fire extinguishers on board. I never gave it a second thought. Maybe I should ? Now a close friend of mine Bales 25000 acres of straw with a few balers. they have big extinguishers in all tractors.

I kept them on hand all the time while building my cubs just in case. Been many years now so I'm sure they're all kput by now.
Not sure but wondering now how long a small mountable fire extinguisher is good for ?

Mine is attached to the side of the battery box under the seat. Our club requires fire extinguishers for all tractors used in any of our parades or other events. Must also have working brakes and an engine shutoff reachable from the drivers seat.

I'm pretty sure this was brought up previously, but it's worth mentioning again. Quite a few years ago, there was/is a massive recall on some small fire extinguishers. If you go online and check your serial numbers and find you have a recalled one, you simply file for a replacement and they send a new one. This applies all the way back to the 70's, I believe. It doesn't even need to still have a charge.

I replaced several of mine. Hopefully, this link is good, but if not, you can Google Fire Extinguisher Recall:

https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/kidde-recalls-fire-extinguishers-with-plastic-handles-due-to-failure-to-discharge-and

My house and tractor shed are dotted with fire extinguishers, big & small, plus this recommended one in my kitchen (along with a regular BC):

https://www.walmart.com/ip/First-Alert-AF400-Tundra-Fire-Extinguishing-Aerosol-Spray-AF400/10099161

A couple years ago, I had a birds nest under my SA hood catch fire, and the nearby fire extinguisher failed, but was finally put out with a 2nd one. Fortunately, only blistered the paint a bit.

Good info in that old post reminding about shaking up the powder! Thanks! This weekend's project...a couple dozen to do.

I keep the small spray can type in the shed and attached to the 3020 for when I mow out in the boonies. Not sure how much help they would be but it gives me a small sense of security.

I agree with John. I DO NOT recommend an extinguisher with a plastic value unit. I have all metal. Have had them for many+ year. Stay Safe.

Thanks for that!!! I need to look. I have one that looks exactly like that on my boat...the small little plastic one with the loop. I have at least a few of those around that look like that. Also check the 3 or 4 around that house.
