A tool bag can be the best available and will not be any good unless it feels right to the person using it.

Everyone will have their own idea on what makes a good HVAC tool bag so lets have a look of some popular units available.

Bucket Boss Bucket Boss 10030 The Bucketeer BTO
Using a standard five gallon bucket as been used forever as a easy tool carrier.
I myself have been known to load tools into a five gallon bucket for installs, service calls require a more professorial look but for quick loading and a handle along with a rope can quickly be raised to a roof, five gallon buckets have their place.
Taking this concept a step further is tool bags that slip onto a five gallon bucket combining the two.
The Bucket Boss Bucket Boss is a popular option with many others to choose from.
There is no doubt many good options for tool bags available to heating and cooling technicians.
From cheap to expensive there is lots of different styles for carrying tools.
The main point will be what works for you making your job easier and done quicker.
Often what works for one person doesn’t work for another.
One person may have larger tools they like or be left handed which changes the way a case is carried.
The above cases are simply ones that we like and use.
Which ever tool bag is bought be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure it is a good fit for you.
