    I didnt know where this topic belonged and I've been wondering and wanting to know some of your answers.

    As move topics i've been going through, seems most of you guys leave all your tools in your truck?

    How do you guys store/lock all your equipment?

    a) Do you just unload all your equipment to your garage, your house storage area?
    --- I dont think most of you guys do because it's so time consuming right?

    What other features or ways do you guys protect your tools/equipment?

    I was storing everything in my attached garage. It was a real PITA 'cause I had to load and unload everyday. I just bought a 6 x12 enclosed trailer that I am looking forward to for next year. It'll probably save me 1/2 hour a day.

    Unload / Load daily. Takes about 20 minutes. I sharpen blades, change oil, ect... on weekends. I carry spare sets of blades with me and change them often.

    We run all enclosed trrailers. On each trailer and loader, we have a remote controlled model T coil that, when you touch the metal around the piece, you complete the circut. Very high voltage, low amperage, just like touching a plug wire and turning an engine over.

    Works like a charm.
