Re: Tool Storage? (Swag Giveaway!)


Now I feel better! My desk always looks like a hurricane hit it but I know where everything is. If one of my kids tries to organize it I can't find a thing.

FrankSmith, I am guessing you don't have any trouble finding tools.

Re: Tool Storage? (Swag Giveaway!)


I bring to the job just what we need, plus a little more. I am a good planner and rarely show up without something I needed. Lately a lot of our jobs have been in close proximity, so one job is kind of the drop zone for a lot of equipment.

Shop,van, & trailer. They all go through various stages of mess and cleanliness over the course of the year.

Re: Tool Storage? (Swag Giveaway!)


ill try to find a pic, but the bed of my truck fits my trim tools if its put in correctly. I have a be cover also so i can leave it loaded overnight. The only issue i have is i can haul too much materials with the tools loaded. Hence why i want a trailer.

Re: Tool Storage? (Swag Giveaway!)


We have an enclosed utility box truck too. 16'. Everything from power tool rack to pneumatic tool rack to the nuts, bolts, screws, and nails. Then you have the shovels and post hole diggers, 1 man auger. Theres this top shelf which is where the microwave sits (which we never use) and A-lot of extra jackets, coffee cups, and shirts. Kinda messy with a 5 man crew. We also have a hose reel for air hoses. I used it to put batter boards up for my fence at my house. Stretched 400 ft of hose out and had the compressor still in the truck. Worth it when its gas and weighs a ton. Smells like gas though most of the time from fumes.

It's not bad. 43 pounds when the wd-40 is full. I carry around a lot of heavier things on a daily bases. Ladders, aluminum brake, compressor, table saw, miter box and so on. I might build one with an aluminum body when this one gives out. I would rather carry around a well organized heavy box then spend time looking for tools.
