Cargo Boxes And Baskets For Your Utility Vehicle
The cargo boxes and baskets are designed to fit Deere Gator, Kubota RTV 900, Cub Cadet Big Country, Bobcat Toolcat, Kawasaki Mule and other brands. The line includes a crossover toolbox, basket, and side-mounted storage boxes. All mount on top of your vehicle's bed rails, keeping the same amount of available floor space in the bed.
There are two ways to install the units - either direct-bolt them to the utility vehicle's rails, or use an optional bolt-on kit that eliminates the need to drill holes in the bed. All units are powder coated in Deere green or medium gloss black.
"They're built rugged and will stand up to heavy use," says Christopherson. "A big advantage is that they don't take up space on the floor of the bed. These rigs aren't all that big to begin with, so if you put toolboxes on the floor there's not much space left. Another advantage is that you can carry two different types of cargo and still keep them separate. For example, you can store circular or chain saws or electric drills and still haul a load of gravel."
Front Crossover Box - Measuring 54 1/2 by 14 by 12 in., it comes with a gas spring lift assist lid and foam seal for weather-resistant storage, as well as a lockable push button release. Sells for $219 plus S&H.
Side Boxes - They go with the front crossover box or can be used as stand-alones with rear stands. The boxes have a sealed door frame for weather-resistant storage. Dual lanyards on the door create a temporary work surface when open. The door's lid can be swung down to create a temporary work surface when open (a pair of straps stop the lid once the lid reaches the horizontal position). Comes with a lockable push button release. Each box sells for $159 plus S&H.
Crossover Basket - Measuring 54 by 14 by 11 in., the basket comes with expanded metal sides and bottom that allow dirt and water to pass through. Keeps your tools and other gear from sliding all over the cargo bed. Or, it can be used to separate them from dirty or damaging bulk cargo, such as yard waste. Sells for $219 plus S&H.
The optional no-drill bolt-on kit sells for $25 plus S&H.
