Low Tech, Simple Cup Holder

Fri Sep 06, 2013 9:32 pm

I wanted to take my Cub for a walk this evening back to the woods behind the house :lol: and I had just come home from taking my wife out for an evening of fine dining. I still had a half full cup of Diet Coke and didn't want to just throw it out. What to do?? I could just hold It but that seemed labor Intensive. I remembered seeing some cup holders upstairs in the barn (I never throw anything away) that went to a couple of lawn chairs that gave up the ghost (okay, I did throw them away). I thought maybe I could use one of them to hold my drink.

No craftsmanship here, I just simply hooked it over the bracket the supports the Touch Control lever stops and played with the location. I was kind of bored tonight so I thought I post a few pictures. :lol:

Nice add on. Especially for an evening walk. I think I would prefer it on the driver's side like in the first picture. Or maybe in the rear like the 3rd picture.

And also, what's that front lever do? (and how does it do it? Some kind of add on hydraulic or creeper system? )

Bingo! It's an auxiliary hydraulic circuit for the power angle on my snow blade.

The NOS is operated by a hidden button. Image

Will all 4 fit at once for heavy drinkers?

Or, you can just use the front section of the speed control/touch control quadrant, resting the bottom of the cup/can on the speed control rod. That's what I do.

Yes, clever. Steve Woods cup holder looks as though it might even double as an umbrella holder?

I don't have a pic but I used a 3" PVC coupling with a piece of 3" pipe cemented in one end and cut flush. Got a longer bolt and bolted it to the rear of the Touch Control Quadrant. Puts the cup within easy reach. Will hold a 12" Dr. Pepper can or most importantly a 32oz foam cup of tea from Arnold's Family Restaurant in Richlands, NC or whatever Bojangles I happen to pass....
