Very nice. How is it with ROPS down? I have to put mine down often because of mowing around low tree limbs.

Thanks for response. I like this setup. I was looking into a ammo box on post of ROPS. But since my bx2370 is stored in barn. I could do with the open tray. Much more useful.

Nice. I coated my ATV basket with truck bed liner. It has never shown any signs of rust after about 8 years.

Re: ROPs Carry All Basket for L3200

RDB thanks for sharing this. This is a great idea. I just ordered my basket 37.5” wide from Summit Racing $104 inc. delivery and found square U bolts with end plates at Menards for $1.60 each, I’m fitting this on my L3200 but may add the same to my other tractors.

Looking forward to finally having a solution to carrying a few things on my tractor, especially chain saw, bar oil and gas can.

It's a 36" ATV front basket and I purchased the U-Bolts from TSC. I made the straps from flat bar from TSC. Works great.
Tractor Mike has a ROPs carry basket he sells but I want one with higher sides and of expanded metal, and had thought I’d have to jsut fabricate my own... but YOUR project RDB... is a GREAT SOLUTION! I plan to plagiarize it for myself.

Thanks for the Idea!

This is a great idea & execution, I'd love it, but won't work too well with my BH.

nice job and a great idea to re-purpose the basket. I am in the same situation as you Lil_foot, I have my BH77 that I use a fair amount. Mostly I need something to carry stuff when it is off though, but this got me thinking, I could add a basket to the top of my ballast box. I would have to punch some holes through the bottom to ensure my tool tubes still work, but I could tack it on the ballast box to hold all my "stuff"

Another project for the list....

That's awesome at 1/2 the price. I've been looking for a lower budget way to do this without spending the high bucks for the name brand tractor basket. I'm ordering this asap.

You can just look online for atv baskets. The dimensions should be posted on their descriptions. Sportsman’s Guide has one comparable.

I know how to shop online... The reason I asked was because I’ve shopped all over the internet and cannot find that particular basket for sale anywhere.
I found one very similar at Sears online...but after selecting it for my shopping basket, checking-out....(and I’ve gone thru it SIX times now and beginning to understand now why Sears is going-out-of-business)... Their check-out procedure does not work! (The site says to “try again later”.)

Thanks for the response. I’ll keep looking. (Thanks for that link.)

Fitted my basket yesterday on my L3200. This is a great addition and allows me to carry chainsaw, gas can, bar oil and other tools. My land is mainly woodland, always need a saw on board, I just ordered another basket and will do the same mod on my L3901. I’m using a 37.5” wide basket from Summit Racing website and square U bolts from Menards for $1.60 each, very nice fit and finish.
