Has anyone made or found a way to mount a small cooler to your tractor? I would like to have a small one to carry snacks, water, and maybe an adult beverage or two to be able to enjoy while bush hogging the horse pasture as it takes me a couple days to do it.

Will hold a 12 pack with ice 😉. I’m not sure if the company still in business though, I’ll try to check and post back if interested…

edit: no longer available on eBay or Amazon (I got it on Amazon) ☹, can’t find much on the company…

If the job will take a couple days, quantity becomes the main concern!

One of the many benefits of having a backhoe. little cooler sits in the bucket and follows me wherever I go.
I could sit one in the loader bucket but I know I would dump it out not thinking.

I would think it would be hard to bushhog with the backhoe attached though..

I attached an ATV rack on my ROPS with rectangular u bolts. It will carry a lot more than a small cooler.

I've thought about seeing if a golf cart cooler bracket could be mounted to the ROPS with U bolts but have yet to get around to gambling on a purchase. Even if it didn't directly bolt on, maybe weld some flat iron onto it so it will.
Been looking around to see if I can find the dimensions and hole spacing but have yet to do so.

Ended up finding some scrap electrical strut laying around the house and an old SS toolbox tray from my old truck. A couple 90 degree fittings and bolts and came up with this. It mounts using the ROPS bolts and can be removed with just 2 bolts. Just have to cut the one piece down to the correct length.
