    How do you guys transport your hand equipment?

    ie) hand pruners, loppers, lubing oil, hedge shears?

    I toss all of mine in a bucket...

    My trailer is enclosed and so I have a 6' tall tool cabinet in it.
    It holds everything from screwdrivers, pruners, sprinkler parts, extra blades, oil, and gloves.
    Lots of room for all the hand tools, works out very well.

    On my truck with the open trailer I put all the small stuf in the tool box. In the bed I leave the shovels, rake and such. Nobodys ever messed with that stuff. Every couple of months I coat the handels with linseed oil because of being in weather.

    We us a Pick Up Truck tool box.

    I also use a large 5 gallon pail which works very well!

    My open trailer has a truck box attached to the tounge and it totes all my misc. stuff around. And having it there does not effect my turning raidus.
