    Newbie Question, What Tools Do You Carrying the Toolbox?

    Just wondering what others carry in the tool box. Are there any recommended tools? I need to gather what I may need before I head to my cabin. I did a search and could not find anything.

    I kept a pair of gloves, a few rags, an adjustable wrench for the 3 point hitch, and a couple of zip ties and hair pins.

    Std. screwdriver. Cheapo that can be bent back, not a good one, as it's never used for turning screws.

    10" Crescent wrench. The classic with the hole in the handle end. Many uses, and handy for turning an upper link as well as beating things.

    2lb engineers hammer. Cheapo tool bin jobbie. Sometimes, pins and draft links need inspiration from Aasgarde, and Thors Hammer is the answer. Not in tool box, but beside or behind seat...just in case zombie Hippies attack.

    Std. Vice grips. Works as a clamp on a blown hose, or as locking pliers to remove mangled hair pins, and other snafus.

    Small can of PB Blaster. Millions of unauthorized uses, and a few that are logical, like cleaning up a PTO output shaft after getting buried, and having to remove the impliment to get levered out.

    Small can of Ether. More for blasting Poison Ivy Urishoil off of rockshafts and top links, as well as the hands, and for blowing mud out of remotes. Also comes in handy as a minor wound disinfectant...beats just leaving the dirt on the cut anyway.

    Dykes...or "Linemans Pliers" for the PC Nancys. Mostly for cutting old bailing wire, and twine off of the Rotovator spindle, but handy for stripping rusty nuts and bolts in a pinch.

    Extra Greasy Rag for checking oil, blowing nose, and as an emergency bandage.

    Coil of 16ga steel wire.

    Various leaves, dead insects, and spare lynch pins, hair pins, and Cat-2 to Cat 1 bushings.

    If they haven't been covered in the generic list, I keep tools for the chain saw (blade), string trimmer, hedge trimmer, etc. Not so much as to be able to do a complete rebuild, but it is nice to know you can adjust the blade on your chainsaw if you need to if you make sure you have the tools.

    "Dykes...or "Linemans Pliers" for the PC Nancys."
    Please, please, let's keep this as PC as we can for today's world! "Alternate Female Lifestyle Cutting Pliers", not "Dykes"!

    I got 2 Leatherman "Sidekicks" free from some Gempler's orders and I keep one in each tractor toolbox. I also have a small pruner that I remember my mother using when I was a kid. It's still as slick cutting as it must have been new in the '40's.

    I also keep a couple slip hooks in the box, one a large one for tow work and a smaller one that fits my tow chain. Sometimes you just have to have 2 slips on one chain. A screw type quick link is in there someplace also, probably under the greasy oil check/bandage rag. You just can't have too many "possibles" in there like 5 turns of heavy and medium wire, an end of a roll of duct tape... I used to keep a ½ roll of bathroom tickets in my work machines... Sometimes you can get up to 5 bucks for some of that!

    All good ideas of what to carry, but in my neck of the woods and this time of year an additional tool that is a must to carry is a small can of OFF for the mosquitos.
