If you mean the red handled tool-- thats a 4 point crimper used on bare copper caps (Buchanan caps) often seen connecting ground wires. It pinches in 4 directions.

Similar to a Bootlace ferule crimper?...indents 4 sides at once, press too hard and the crimp gets stuck in the tool?

Let me guess.... you ID all your tools with green tape....

YEP, if they are already green I use an industrial marker and put my initials on

Yep, with a bucket buddy wrap. For $22, they're disposable

Thumbs up Bucket buddy

They designed it, not me

Takes less than two minutes. After you're onboard, go to Jobsite Gear and you'll find the bucket wrap and many other goodies there.

I used to, years ago. I found it was too easy for it to get top-heavy, and spill in the van. Also a PITA to find some things, even with a bucket-buddy. I prefer the tool bag/box.

There are guys at work who use the buckets, just with out the "bucket buddy". Everything just gets piled in there so when you need something you go digging. It works for them, I couldn't take it though, it'd drive me nuts. But hey, it's cheap and works.

That looks like it would be less stable and more top heavy than a regular aerial bucket.

One thing that it is lacking is a thong or chain for electrical tape, but that is easily remedied.

I did notice that my old bag (pictured here) had a lot of the outside pockets wearing out at the bottoms.
Ok, after using the new bag for a week, I have to say that I like it better - a lot better than my old bag.
Pluses - 1) almost everything is inside a compartment, nice when it is raining, like yesterday. My old one had everything exposed.
2) Much easier to find what I am looking for, and get it out without digging. Also easier to see if something is not replaced.
3) Looks "cleaner" - mostly from having most things inside compartments.

Cons - 1) Not as compact. It takes up twice as much room in the truck as my old one.
2) No tape thong - easily remedied though.

looks like it, but it's actually about as wide as is tall and has a nice plastic bottom.. I don't know, I'm just waiting for my husky bag to die. I'm sick of it.

I have my other tools locked up in my tool cabinet in the electric shop, High Voltage tools, meggers, specialty meters etc....
I once worked at a chemical plant that involved alot of walking. This would have greatly increased my productivity. Nice wheels man I would have loved that...

I guess im one of the few guys that still like to wear a tool belt? Ive had the same Klein nylon belt and pouch for the past 6 years. Im lost without it. Just before I head to a specific task I tool up in my truck grabbing what i will need and off i go. I carry the basic set up and add and subtract to it based on what work I am about to do. Tool bags are cool but you spend to much time bending over grabbing tools and sticking them in every pocket. not for me but what ever floats your boat
