Better figure out a way to keep the top covered or you will be chewing your hydration. I like where it is nice and handy with either hand, or both hands if necessary !

I put two or three cans out in strategic locations around the yard, shady places where they will stay cool. If I get it done quick than the cans still have sweat on them

Great idea, I have about 3 acres. I could set quite a few around. But would be warm by the time I drank them all, but by then, I would not be to concerned. Noel

To be honest, I've never understood the cup holder craze on mowers/GT's. Maybe I have the only yard rough enough to empty a can of it's contents in 10'....or just bounce the whole can out of the holder. But maybe after a few brews, you guys don't even notice!

How about when you pull up cup/can the whole holder comes with it? My newer PK does that. I'll 2nd the lid on any cup. Even up high on a fender it gets grass blown on it, or IN it if open. I agree that just the can does tricks and jumps and won't last long on my bumpy yard either.

The kubota is used to run a 4' bush hog on my 2 acre pasture and pushing snow. I go SLOW and it's flat so i doesn't bounce around much.

I also never understood the need or want for a cup holder on a lawn/garden tractor. For one they just don't work very well if at all. If the drink doesn't bounce out or splash out it gets covered in grass and dirt. Also by the time you would actually need a drink it will be hot. I drink before I get on my GT and if I need a drink after a hour or so I take a break for a few minutes. A cup holder is pointless and useless.

I could never keep a beer from going flat while mowing. I found that by placing it in the mail box at the end of the road, and swinging by the mail box periodically worked good.
Obviously you have a different mailman then I do!
