Thinking of gettin a couple of 20-40' textainers for my supply yard.

handles

You might want to consider moving the handles up the closer bars a little. Those things can get contrary opening sometimes and since they are mounted low to the box for opening from the ground, moving them up puts them at a more comfortable height.

Farm Show idea. Take two containers, spread them 12-16 feet apart (inside width), buy some roofing trusses, plywood and shingles and install a roof between the two containers. You have covered storage for hay, straw, tractors, etc, and then lockable storage for tools and whatever. You can even put a locking passage door in the side with a good recip saw, grinding wheel or plasma cutter/torch. They are handy to have, just make sure you get the holes in the roof patched before you use them to store anything that can get damaged when wet. And they all have holes in the roof at least somewhere.
