    Default Thinking Outside The Box (Custom Storage Box)

    good day everyone. I figured it was about time I got back to say hello.

    Ive had my Kubota tractor for two seasons now but still only got 138 hours on it. I use my tractor strictly for snow clearing. That being said I've only been out once so far this winter plowing snow and there's no snow on the ground here now at all.

    Over the holidays I managed to get some time to myself in the shop so I fabricated a PTO guard for the rear PTO and while I was at that I decided to build a storage box up in the front where the weights would normally hang.

    Well as I got going at it I decided to add a few other items to it such as cornering LED quad strobe lights, Stainless steel locking latch, Gas shock for the lid, Machined hinges with grease nipples and It was built out of 3/16th steel. I wanted the latch to the side of the unit for easy access. The bottom is complete as well and could act as a skid pan if need be. I also wanted to fabricate grill guards for the LED lights. It weighs in at almost 60 lbs.
    There were a few challenges such as the grill guard and how I was going to integrate the box around that but I did it and I just got it installed so I figured Id show it to you.

    I did a YouTube video of the complete build so if interested here it is:

    Very nice work. No one will even know it is not a Kubota item.

    The only thing you didn't do was double wall the bottom of the box and tie it into the engine cooling system to keep your gloves warm......Oh wait.......You've got a cab

    I would patent it, and try selling it to kubota or and aftermarket company, that is a very nice design, and looks factory, that is the kinda stuff people want.
