Howdy all,

I’m looking for a good front box to mount on the rear of my Foreman. I see lots of comments on rear boxes, but I like the low profile of a front box mounted on the rear so I don’t snag it on branches and the like . I carry mostly tools, survey stakes, saws and stuff like that so I don't need a bunch of room.

Do any of you use or know of anyone with a Tamarack front box? I’ve read some concerns about weatherstripping and the hinge systems, but I talked to the factory and they sound like they have it covered.




I also looked at the Kolpin front box, but it doesn’t look like it will fit on a ’08 foreman and still clear the seat . Anyone out there have one? The box measures 15â€

I have that exact Tamarack box on the rear rack of my 500. It fits perfect. I drilled holes in the bottom of the box and attached it with U-bolts to secure it. I haven't noticed any water getting into the box, however, I have not had it completely submerged. One of my hinges was a little loose, but a piece of electrical tape wrapped around the hook tightened it down nicely. Overall I am happy with it. There are pics in my gallery.

Boy, talk about getting exactly the info I need! .

Did you happen to try mounting the box backwards? I'd kind of like to mount it with the opening to the rear if possible. I figger the clearances will be ok, I just need to figure out what to do with the seat cut-out.

Maybe a good place to mount my Saw Press?

I don't think you will be able to mount it backwards. The box wraps around the back of the seat within an inch or two and extends along the sides of the seat for a few inches. I added another picture to my gallery so you can see what I am talking about. I am still able to take the seat off easily, however, it is close. Let me know if you have any other questions or want more pics.

Andrew,

Thanks again for the info and also the additional pic!

I ordered one up this AM for $100.00 including freight and also got the foam kit for $40.00. I'll add pics after I get it mounted.

Cute pic of your son, he looks ready to go! My boy is 12 now and the only way to get him off the Rancher or Foreman is with a crowbar.
