My old B1700 doesn’t have a cup holder. Holding a water bottle while mowing is getting old. What have those who do not have cup holders done to solve this issue. The B1700 doesn’t have a ton of fender space to mount stuff on. Looking for ideas here

If you have a roll bar, use pvc pipe, t-nuts and a couple of magnets.

I agree that it’s an oversight for K to forget about cupholders. I used a 1/8” drill bit and drilled a circle of little holes I’d drawn around the base of a marine cup holder in the fender …. then a hack saw blade to cut-out the circle…. smoothed it with a file…. painted it with Rustoleum rattle-can Kubota Orange…and stuck a marine cup holder in the hole…

When I bought mine, the previous owner had installed one of these on the FEL controller. I was constantly banging my leg or knee on it, so i took it off.

Attached to the cross bar on my B7800 the previous owner had a handle there. I needed water over the handle. Just used a 3inch PVC coupler glued to a PVC clean out. Drilled a drain hole in the square clean out and counter sunk my bolt as to not be in the way. Now I have my 32oz Yeti for long days bush hogging.
