I have all of my tools at my shop, but I also carry a box with basic hand tools like hammer, pry bar, screwdrivers, pliers, socket for plugs, etc on the trailer at all times.

just look at my work thread and see how much I have.

Compressor, mechanics toolset, blade sharpener, assorted fluids in case of a leak, tire patch, and the DOT required items (fuses, fire extinguisher).

The come-along might be one of the most underrated tools to have on board....

Sure, I can lock out the hydros on my Walker but pushing it up my trailer ramp by myself is another story....

Helps with those pesky ditches too...

i also have a 12 volt air compressor man that thing has save me a few time boy is it slow took over 20 min to fill up a pickup truck tire that was just barly getting flat needed some air to really drive it
do you have a gas powered air compressor? i know i wouldn't use a compressor every day i have a electric compressor at home but when i need air i am never home thats how it works right? is it worth carrying a gas air compressor? not s haroble freight type thing i could use it my shed has no electric and getting out a cord and plugging it into the house is a nuance but it works had to add some air to the mower the other day at a customers house i know they cost a bit is the expense /time savings/ convince worth it?

A 5 gal bucket with a small bottle jack, breaker bar and socket. Need to get flat off and spare on the trailer. Pair of dikes, small screw driver, roll of line for the trimme, dust pan and hand broom.

I only take what I need to do the job. More weight you pull the lower the MPG and the higher the wear and tear on the tow vehicle and trailer.

So when I mow I just bring the mowers that I will use, line trimmer, stick edger, blower.

Same with hedge trimming bringing job. The stuff above will not help me and is just theft bait while you are out of sight.
