Upgrading to a cup holder

Postby Jmb9313 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 9:42 pm

:coffee:
I have a 49, and wellllll... All I want is a :censored:
cupholder! I get pretty tired of having to get off to drink something in the middle of work. Has anyone found a good, Reliable, sturdy, fully circular (meaning if my cell phone is in it, it won't fall out), after market cupholder?
:beer: would make it alot more enjoyable if for say when my battery kill switch fries again except it started to rain and it's cold and the tractor HAD to be moved. (Electrical taped a bypass wire into it)
Let me know/where I can find one. Thanks.
:tractor:

TST's are very nice. If you are looking for something else or google "motorcycle cup holder"
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

That's what I use the tool box for....
A bottle (soda/pop) or pint thermos.
Though it is currently occupied with a dishsoap bottle of soapy water for a fire extinguisher /propane leak checker. (Probably frozen.)
I did fit the mail in with it a week ago.
Wonder if I remembered to take the mail out of it....Oh -oh. Now I need a mail holder in the sight line of the operator station. :oops:

I made one out of a 3" PVC coupling. Glued a piece of pipe inside, cut to length, and bolted it to the TC quadrant. Worked good. It would hold a regular canned soft drink and your typical fast food cup. These are the best pic I could find in a hurry:

Maybe you can get you hands on one of the KubKraft ones. I believe they used to clamp to the post.

So I found a motorcycle cup holder that I could mount off one of the bolts for the dashboard. It hangs on the other side of the hydrolic arm on the left side of the body, but supports it's own weight. (Wasn't big enough to mount it on the steering wheel pole)
I also changed to a screw type battery disconnect and finally wired my headlights back in. They only have 2 levels. Bright and Off. As well as adding in a voltage meter with a built in USB plug (in red of course) so I can keep my phone charged. It was a good day for Amazon deliveries.
