GEKO Magnetic Stainless Steel Can Cooler, Model# GEKOSS
This cooler is great for keeping drinks cold, fits perfect in your vehicle console. Great for the lawn mower but this is baseball season and found out that it is great for metal bleachers. Try it out you won't be sorry.

Decent Can Holder
Got this as a gift for my father who is always on the mower during the summer. It holds his cans of coke with ease and keeps it secured to the fender via the magnetic base. I liked it so much, I got one for myself.

This is a nice looking, sturdy made can holder, but the magnet is so weak that it will hardly hold itself onto metal, let alone when it has a full can or bottle in it. I know with the bounce of my tractor, it won't last long at all... Too bad the magnet wasn't stronger.

Holds cans fine. After about 8-10 cold ones can't mow straight though. Who cares

Nice idea but...
I bought 2 of these for my tractors. Great product if you want to bolt it down. Useless for me due to VERY weak magnet. I read some reviews talking about how good the magnet is but they must have different product than me. Will not stay on with normal tractor vibrations.

Steel Can Cooler
I dropped it and it didn't break. Sticks to my tractor hood. Use it all the time when mowing the lawn

Magnets are very strong and holds on lawn tractor nicely until you hit a branch with it! Then I found out it wasn't lawnroller proof!!!!!!!

Works good on my yard tractor. Made of metal so it will not crack if it falls. Stays on tractor even when in 4th gear mowing

The magnet is not strong enough to hold it on my tractor. I did not want to bolt it on like one guy did so I used zip ties. It is only large enough to hold a standard can. It want hold a bottle of water.

the insulation is good... magnetism, not so much!
i bought two of these: one for me; one for my brother-in-law. he's a wizard when it comes to fixing and restoring old model equipment, so many of this tractors don't have cup holders. in my case, i just haven't broken down and bought a newer model than the one that came with the house i bought, two years ago.
i had put mine on the hood of my crafstman yard tractor. i was doing the front yard last august, and where there is a significantly inclined dirt berm by the street. i would say my property is four feet below street level, and i make sweeping arcs of the berm in successive passes so i don't have to try to turn around in the street.
well, here i am bopping along, fat, dumb and happy, sipping on my code red once in a while, but now it's time to do the berm. when i hit a bump of some sort on the way down one sweep, the GEKO tumbled forward, down the [right now] steep incline of my tractor's hood, lands RIGHT in front of the tractor, and before i can even hit the brake pedal, i mowed it into eleventy gazillion shards of stainless steel, foam insulation and apparently VERY UNDERPOWERED magnet.
so much for the claim that, "...the heavy-duty magnet on the bottom that'll keep the GEKO in place over bumps and up and down hills."
needless to say, i did NOT order another one.
i haven't checked with my brother-in-law, but he doesn't have the steep inclines on his property that i do, on mine. i would only recommend this to someone with flat, even terrain beneath their wheels.
