Tractor Loader Tool Holders
"I just bought a new L4240 Kubota tractor cab and loader. I used to carry a toolbox in the cab of my last tractor and it was always in the way. So this time I decided to find a better way to hold a few chains, tools and pins," says Dan Bodas, Pittsburg, Mo.
   "The loader has two smaller 4-in. dia. tubes where the loader attaches to the chassis, and a larger 4 1/4-in. tube in the loader frame itself.
  "I bought four 4-in. dia. pvc expander plugs, which make perfect covers in the ends of the tubes. The plugs expand so no adhesive is required to hold them in and you get a watertight storage compartment. The plugs cost just $5.99 each and come in different sizes.
  "The 4-in. plugs fit perfectly into the two 4-in. pipes. They were a little loose in the bigger 4 1/4 in. loader tube so I bought a 4-in. pvc connector fitting and cut a slot in one side to allow it to slip inside the loader tube. The expander plugs fit perfect into the pvc inserts."
