Nice looking setup, very clean! I just picked up the scaffolding from Harbor Freight, will put it together and get at least the mower deck/power bagger set up on it. I'm hoping it can be placed high enough to sit behind the tractor and above the rear mounted snowblower, just for keeping space nice and tidy.Hi, I use plastic pallets to hold my attachments ... My pallet rack comprised of standard 10ft beams with 8 ft frames ... plastic pallets come in different racking load strengths ... the ones I use are rated for 1200lbs (unsupported, just sitting across the open pallet rack beams) ... I also added pallet rack decking that is rated at 2500lbs ... (its a belt and suspenders kind of thing) ... very solid, no sagging, looks nice.
As others have suggested, I anchored my pallet frames to the cement floor of my garage and also added straps on the pallet frame uppers secured via lag bolts in my garage wall. Also, if you go the pallet rack route, make sure you install the little beam 'keepers' that secure the beams in place.
It was enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket, maybe it was more than a pound, didn't actually weigh it, just assumed its weight (I know, assuming...).getting it down will be EASY.....
by then, your new pallet fork attachment will have arrived !!!
ONLY a pound of grass ?? I've filled a 5G pail cleaning a 1 year old rider....
idea ?? can you put deck on the ground and the blower on the platform ??
If the platform is in the lowest position,can you easily get the blower on and off ?
I bought a Harbor freight scaffold on sale and the rest are on pallets with the wheel from the harbor freight dollies as they were cheaper. Everything can roll around to get to different impliments. This is a standard 8ft basement. Just for tractor and impliments. View attachment 93788 View attachment 93785
That's a lot of attachments, I'm guessing you have a LOT more than the acre I have to upkeep. That's also an impressive looking shed for the tractor - I only have a single car detached garage for mine, so I have much less space to play with.
Yes a large acreage and a number of different machines, 2 sizes of tractor attachments (MX & L series), attachments for the track loader and buckets for the excavator. It's like having a disease but in a fun way, I do have a couple of things that I just don't use like I thought I would. It will be time in the spring to sell a couple of things to make a little more space.That's a lot of attachments, I'm guessing you have a LOT more than the acre I have to upkeep.

Nope, they sell Dolly's as i just purchased 3 small one, and they also have a sale going on for a larger one. I had my kubota snowblower on them and they roll very easy.I could not find any rolling pallets on Harbor Freight's website, I'm assuming you mean equipment dolly's?
what is the implement on the farmall ? i too have the woodlandmills wood chipper WC68 great machineCouple of options:
If you have enough headroom I have seen some put up heavy shelving and stack implements two or three high using the forks on the tractor.
Personally, I keep most often used stuff on dollies to allow moving them around the floor. If I could only store them where the tractor set them down it would be much more restrictive and inefficient. Also allows easily moving them temporarily to free up floor space near the door by easily pushing them around if I need additional room to work on something. A few times I’ve also rolled several implements over by the door and pretty quickly forked them elsewhere for a few hours or days to free up floor space and then set them back in when done. Sitting on a dolly, they’re easily moved with forks. Steel caster wheels, plywood decks, and reasonable 2x subframes are quick and cost effective to put together.
I also have a few implements that aren’t often used and don’t benefit from climate control which stay in this dirt floored shed. (i.e. generator in climate control; leaf rake in shed). There’s no rolling or sliding that stuff around out there. Most is way too heavy for manhandling and caster wheels useless on dirt. Quite a bit less user friendly but relatively cheap storage.

The thing on the front is a trip bucket loader. The back is an aftermarket 3 point hitch with a trailer mover which doesn’t show very well in the picture. It kind of looks like the black thing is on the back of the Farmall but the black thing is the SSQA forks for the Kubota that are slid up under the back of the Farmall to minimize the floor space they occupy.what is the implement on the farmall ? i too have the woodlandmills wood chipper WC68 great machine
