    I have a sh1t ton of stuff in my toolbox i always carry. When you open that thing up, its like looking in to a dark abyss, but i know exactly where everything is.

    -Stuff to jack up the mower in case you get something wrapped around the blades, I do this at least 10 times per season.

    - Extra Copenhagen snuff


    -Trimmer line

    -Air guage and air tank, I have to air up and air down for a couple accounts.


    -Extra blades

    -Four or five of those special Stihl tools, I always seem to lose them

    -Extra sunglasses, gloves, green vests

    The list can go on and on....

    I usually like to have mowers and fuel. Extra oil, trimmer line, chains, and a come-along, are all things in the trailer box. Also have a big green bucket and a hand saw in case I need to remove any low-lying limbs

    depends on the work you are doing I would at the minimum carry enough tools to fix or rig your truck or mower so you are not stuck broken down some where off course proper maintenance of your rig before you leave helps negate most minor problems .
