I have a Ridgid tool bag that needs to be retired. I really like it and unfortunately I can't find another one. Home Depot discontinued them. What tool bag/box do you own? I may have to find a new favorite.

I have a bunch of these - stackable - rugged... Also has a V-notch that makes it easy to cut conduit on.

This is what I use. Its a Home Depot Special (Husky). I like it because my hack saw and large drill bits fit along the side. It has a small storage container inside it for odds and ends. They even throw in a cheap water bottle. lots of room, pockets, and a carrying strap. Not expensive.

I too like these kind.

I just don't like the fact that you can't get a hacksaw in there without having to break it down.

I tend to use 16" standard toolbags. Really doesn't matter what the brand to me as they all lose their rigidity in about a year's time. Then I go buy a new one.

I prefer used up spackle buckets. It's easy to lug around and my pouch fits in there nice. Tape, bx cutters, and various other "things" that I use often sit at the bottom of the bucket. The bucket also sometimes doubles as a step stool but shh, don't tell OSHA.

Then I have these.

1 for hand tools, testers, hacksaw, and specialty tools.

1 for cable television and telephone/ data tools.

And 1 for for all my drill bits, battery chargers, batteries, flashlights, portable cordless power tools, etc.

It's a PITA lugging all this stuff to and from my personal work truck to the companies work truck. I also have a backup set of hand tools, and pouch, in case something is ever lost or stolen so I am alsways prepared for work.

Shock' I too do the same... One for NM work, MC work, EMT work, Phone Data Work, etc. Tools and various mats for each. But mine stack up easy on a two wheeler.
