Padded Gun Holder Used in Cab On Deere Tractor
Last winter, we needed a backhoe so we modified an old backhoe with worn-out tracks. The backhoe was originally designed to be an integral unit. We made adapter couplers that let us hook the backhoe onto our tractor's 3-pt. We also reworked the hydraulic system so it would work on a tractor's open flow hydraulic system. And we added a seat off an old tractor. Our neighbors use the backhoe all the time to dig underground utility lines or irrigation lines, etc.
  My son Wes came up with this padded gun holder that we use inside the cab on our Deere 8000 series tractor. It lets us safely keep any kind of rifle inside the cab. The gun's stock is secured by a velcro strap and is nestled between a pair of cloth-lined brackets, one at the top and the other at the bottom. The metal bracket bolts to one of the cab's corner posts using pre-drilled holes. (Lonnie Nichols, 2189 40th Road, Copeland, Kansas 67837 ph 620 668-5276; cell phone 620 272-4915)
