The New & Improved Tractor Caddy Tool Box
The Tractor Caddy: The Most Convenient Tractor Tool Box…NOW IMPROVED!!!
When we first came out with the Tractor Caddy in 2017, we solved a problem for a lot of people.
Have you ever been out at the far end of the pasture on your tractor and suddenly needed a tool?
Or you need to go to the woods with your chainsaw, but there’s nowhere to carry the saw?
Or you’re brush hogging and there’s a tree that’s a little bigger than the capacity of your cutter? But if you had a saw, you could cut it down and brush hog over it?
That’s what I’ve experienced my whole life. Out on the tractor, needing something I wish had with me but THERE’S NO PLACE TO CARRY IT! There wasn’t a decent-sized tractor tool box. So we designed a tray that could be mounted on the roll bar and the positive comments rolled in. Many other people had the same issue with tractor storage that I had and they marveled at why no one had come up with a tractor tool storage device. We sold hundreds of them, but not everyone loved all aspects of it.
First, it was hand spray painted. If the paint were completely allowed to cure, it would stick to the shipping package. I was not happy that many customers reported having to repaint their new product. The Tractor Caddy is now powder coated.
Second, it had expanded metal in the bottom. I personally hate expanded metal, it’s heavy, and the sharp edges can cut you, but we needed a way to economically build the Caddy and have it be able to drain rainwater. The new Tractor Caddy is stamped steel and has numerous drain holes.
The old Caddy was removable, held on with clevis pins. It tended to rattle, and since most people never removed it, they usually would find some bolts and permanently attach it to the brackets. That’s what I did with mine. Having a removable tray sounded good, but in practice, once it’s on, you’ll never take it off anyway, so it might as well be bolted on.
This new Caddy checks all of the boxes and it just looks more modern. It’s the perfect next generation of the product and it’s available now for immediate shipping.
“Recently, my daughter bought me a Tractor Caddy for my Kubota L2501. I’ve been a part-time tractor operator for about 15 years and I can’t believe I managed to get anything done before I got the Caddy. My goodness, it has been the most useful addition to my tractor. I live in Central Florida and have to deal with downed trees all the time. Now I can carry my chain saw, fuel and have everything I need when I leave the barn.
We love your videos, keep up the good work” – Jerry R.

The Tractor Caddy is an American-built rollbar-mounted tool carrier. It’s designed to help carry tools, supplies and other items. They are with you on your tractor when you need them, but they’re stashed safely out of the way. We’ve gotten requests for a tool box for Kubota and Deere tractors, and this caddy fits any brand of tractor with a roll bar.
The Tractor Caddy tool box is stamped metal. It won’t accumulate water, and the pre-cut diamonds aid in visibility. It’s easy to mount this tractor tool rack on all current roll bars. The Tractor Caddy can carry your chainsaw as well as other tools safely, no need to worry about it bouncing off and being run over.
And by the way, if you are looking for a way to keep cool in the summer and dry in the wet weather, take a look at our RhinoHide Tractor Canopy. Another convenient and useful tractor accessory you’ll wonder how you did without! The Tractor Caddy and Rhinohide Canopy are great companions and can be mounted together in most applications.

Got it a few weeks ago.
Today I went back to the woods behind my cropland to work on setting up the shooting range I’ve been wanting for a good while now. I’ve already got a big dirt berm made; hired a guy with an excavator a while back todo that. Today I set up yardage markers, and cut back light brush and low-hanging branches that would be in the way. The list of things I took with me to accomplish those jobs:
- 10 yardage marker signs I made, about 2½ feet tall
- a hand-held sledge hammer and a small block of wood
- a couple of tape measures
- a kite string reel (to mark out a straight line 100 yards long)
- a set of loppers
- an 8-foot battery-powered Greenworks pole saw, bungeed in the front-to-back direction on top of the Tractor Caddy, and steadied by
- hand when needed
- a DR trimmer mower (like a weedeater on steroids, on wheels) on a pallet, bungeed to the pallet forks frame
Now, before the Tractor Caddy there was no way I could take all that various and sundry stuff back to the woods in one trip, using only the tractor. I would have had to carry the signage stuff in my Grand Cherokee, do that work, then come back to the house (about a half-mile drive), load the brush-and-branch-cutting equipment on the tractor — the pole saw was harder to carry before the Tractor Caddy was installed — and then go back there the second time and do that part of the work. A pain in the you-know-where, having to split things up like that. And a time waster.
But today I was able to take everything back there and get everything done in one trip, with just the tractor. It was really nice to be able to combine different types of jobs, finally — thanks to the Tractor Caddy!
