At first glance this looks like the typical Bucket Boss tool carrier. I have tried many toolboxes of various sizes and shapes and have always preferred the old bucket for ease of use and ample storage. I found a half-height 2½-gallon bucket that has the same footprint and diameter of the 5-gallon size at my local lumber company. The Bucket Boss fits perfectly. Now I have a low-profile bucket that can be stored in any of my compartments, offers easy access to any tool and a handy bucket should I need to transport water or anything else that would fit.
