Finding room in a tractor cab for tools, parts, and other items needed while in the field, has always been an issue with operators. Small toolboxes have been supplied and located on different areas of the tractor, but the storage space has been limited. Now, John Deere has found a convenient solution with a new Tractor Utility Box.
“We’ve increased the storage capacity of this new Tractor Utility Box,” says Phil Lauer, marketing manager, John Deere. “And, it is designed with a special front weight mount kit to be attached easily on the front weight support of the tractor. This will mount to as few as 4 weights up to a full rack.”
The new Tractor Utility Box is the first to use a patent-pending weight mount system that bolts on in minutes. The toolbox can be easily removed or replaced as needed by the operator. The bracket system ensures stable mounting without compromising headlight use or tractor functions and allows the toolbox to be easily moved from machine to machine.
“The Tractor Utility Box is built from heavy gauge sheet steel and has a heavy-duty gas strut on the lid,” explains Lauer. “Locking pins make the opening and locking the box simple and easy. And, the box has two removable shelves and a fold down front door for easy access to the tools and supplies. There is plenty of room to store tools, tow chains, hitch pins, and other essential items.”
