How do you guys who have binders filled with manuals keep them in the binder? I would like to put all of the Power King manuals I have into a binder. Most of them are single sheets, I don't want to punch holes in them because I don't want the holes to rip. I will punch holes in the packets I have though. I wanted to get those plastic sheets where you put one page into each sheet protector. I looked at walmart and it is $10 bucks for a pack of 25. I have between 60 and 70. That means $30 just to put them into a binder. I am just curious as to how you guys do it.

Opps, wrong forum. Can a mod move this to the "Garden Tractor Forum" section? Thanks.

I used to try and get everything in a binder with sleeve sheet protectors but since I have stacks and stacks of manuals it would cost probably $300 to get them all in sleeves and in binders. I just decided to separate the manuals by Brand/Model and put them into boxes that are labeled.

Ryan I used the plastic inserts but I don't think they cost that much?? Many of my manuals had holes in them...but the bulletins etc did not or were not sturdy enough that I wanted to protect them....the plastic inserts have done a good job protecting them so far. Yes..I had 30-40 of those sheets as well. $10 does sound high to me as well.

I don't have enough to make it worth putting into boxes. When I was working on the '64 for Tesie last fall I was given all of the manuals for it. They are still in the envelopes from when they where mailed to her when she and her husband bought the tractor new.

Ryan I use the plastic page protectors as well, one for each manual. I keep them all organized in one of those plastic file holder boxes that has a lid and carrying handle. I use pieces of cardboard tablet packer as dividers with colored tabs, in between each of the different attachments such as the mower deck manuals, snowthrower manuals, tractors, blades, and other attachments. So far so good. Keeps them all protected and organized. I'd recommend staying away from cardboard box storage, as the cardboard draws moisture, and it's easily chewable by mice and other critters.

I use the sheet protectors when I can get that organized. Do you have a Sam's Club near you?

Ryan it may not have been in store. Might have to order it on line and have it delivered to the store. But it looks like there are some choices.

A lot of my manuals require the "high capacity" sheet protectors. I get mine at Office Max.
