6 tractor cab accessories that we can’t live without

Published:

If you have ever been in a modern tractor cab, you know there is more technology than ever before — everything from GPS to guide the tractor to tablets displaying yield maps. However, there are other smaller gadgets and opportunities in the tractor cab that can help farmers with day to day activities — such as Bluetooth to help the long days seem shorter. We went through our tractors and picked our favorite tractor cab accessories that make life a little bit easier.

These tractor cab accessories are practical and worth having any time — but they also make great gift ideas for that farmer in your life who is hard to shop for (so make sure you keep this in mind for birthdays and holidays!). For many farmers, these gadgets are not necessary to do their day to day duties, but they are the perfect way to make the days more enjoyable. The items range primarily from $15 to $150 — making the perfect gift option. 

These tractor cab accessories are the ones we love to have the most. For example, want to watch your favorite FarmTuber like MN Millennial Farmer, Welker Farms, or Larson Farms? The Bluetooth transmitter along with RAM phone monitor would be ideal for that set up. Farmers are able to listen to the video over the tractor stereo, while also mounting their phone out of the way, and it’s still handy if they down time to watch.

Although most new tractors are equipped with Bluetooth technology, not all of them are. This Bluetooth transmitter is an easy, cheap way to have your favorite playlist playing across your tractor’s stereo. This is also a great way to charge your phone during the day.

There is nothing more annoying than having your phone ring off the hook and not be able to accomplish what you need. However, with this hands free accessory, you will be able to continue to work or drive the semi while being hands free.

RAM X-Grip Phone Mount with Twist-Lock Suction Cup Base 

Although phone mounts have been around for a while, this RAM phone mount is heavy duty and will last years on the farm. This has been one of the most requested accessories on our farm. The suction cup base allows for the mount to move from the tractor to the combine with ease.

Promising reviews: 

  • “The Ram mounts are top of the line for a reason. I use this mount universally through all my vehicles. It has a powerful suction that doesn’t harm the paint on my motorcycle. It withstands the vibration of the road and everyday riding through the rural roads I live on.”
  • “This is the first one I have tried that used a suction mount on the window and I am extremely happy with the form and function on this holder. I was a little undecided about spending $50 on a phone holder. I’m generally not too tight with my spending but there are certain things I choose not to spend much money on, and this had been one of them. I’m glad I bought this one.”
