I pad suction mount for tractor glass.

Please can anyone recommend a mounting to fit on tractor cab glass of several tractors. These tablets are fairly heavy and I guess a really high vacuum unit is needed. Our tiny Leica gps falls off the screen occasionally whereas the bale wrapper box is huge and it never falls off.
There is a huge selection out there, but which ones work well?
Thanks in anticipation.

We do a suction Ram Mount that sticks like S**T to a blanket!

Thanks for the comments. I am getting some prIces for the mount direct onto the cab door. Of course our JD has round profile tubes on the door and the Ford is rectangular😥
I think the suction type will fail eventually and as said, it won’t end well.

to be honest, buy the ram tablet mount, with arm and ball make your own brackets, to bolt them to the tractors metal work.
some links from amazon there are far more just look them up. I picked these at random just search ram mount in amazon.

the round plate fits the back of the tablet mount, but the correct ball size has to match the other parts you use. the arm acts to give you adjustment and space to install and move the tablet, the square bracket with the ball to give you options to make a bracket and fix it to the tractor cab or use some form of clamp like the ones listed below.


clamps you just need to find the right size.

don't scrimp on the tablet mount it will bite you in the end, for max stability 2 clamps bolted to a metal plate that then has a bracket with the correct ball size to match the rest of the ram items.

Dont try. They all fall off.

Proper Ram mount on a rail only.

I found that once virtually every sheet of glass in a cab was curved that was the end of suction mounts. Have various ram mounts here all bolted to a solid fixing.

I always used vsuction mounts for my old sprayer which had a very heavy box.
The trick is to use a degreasant wipe first on the glass then gently moisten the sucker, preferably with saliva. Never had an issuer with it falling off, but you must get some professional type mount, not amazon ones

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
