Tractor Tool Caddy
Redneck Hack No. 2: The Tractor Tool Caddy
You are trundling to and fro on the back 20 and you notice your three-point needs adjustment. Where are your tools?
It’s often I am out on the property that I find myself looking for something: Tool, sunscreen, phone battery booster, snake greeter…
Now, The Fat Rancher likes to think of himself as open to progressive ideas. But he does draw the line at the man-purse. And while there are no spots to mount a tool box on my Kubota, I have a need to tote.
Making a Tractor Tool Caddy
The solution? A manly tool pouch affixed to the tractor seat. What I have here is a Husky Tool Wall from Home Depot, hanging from the tractor seat with a Husky 2 Inch Tool Belt . I also added an aluminium carabiner to hang my tea-thermos from.
This particular tool pouch is made to hang on a peg board. If I were to do it again, I would use pouch designed to hang directly off a belt. Sadly, Home Depot didn’t have one of these with the pocket configuration I wanted. So I had to attach the pouch to the belt with zip-ties.
Still, it makes a handy storage system for those “sundries” that are helpful out in the field.

My husband needs one of these tractor seat caddies. Are they for sale? Great Father’s Day gift.

This was just a hack I threw together. And the Husky “Tool Wall” appears to be discontinued.
I looked at having a product made, but it seemed that the market would be too narrow for me to market to.
My suggestion? Google “Molle seat back organizer” and you will find a bunch of Molle “panels” which are designed to fit over the back seat of a truck. Then you can buy Molle accessories to hold water bottles, wrenches, pistols, etc. You will probably need to sew a strap to keep the organizer on the tractor seat, as we don’t have headrests! Best of luck and, if you do make one, please send me a picture!
