    Default Looking for a good tool belt

    Does anyone know where I could get a truckie belt, or tool belt that is made to hold a denver tool. The boston leather belts have the round bull rings but are not wide enough to put a denver in.

    Default Pac Mule Belt

    I just bought a pack mule Belt. 2 large rings on either side to hold tools. It also has places for beaners around the back. The one I bought also came with a ladder hook and a ring for self rescue. I just go it this weekend and have gone on one call with it so I can't tell you how it works yet but, it fits good.

    This may or may not help. I have the boston leather belt with the big ring. it did not do well with the tool i have. I needed something in an oval shape. I ended up taking the round ring off of the leather and putting a oval shape carabiner in the leather in place of the ring. This works good now for me.

    I use my pants harness to hold the halligan when climbing the portable/ladder. Fits in the right side nice and doesnt fall out, frees up at least one hand for those hairy climbs!

    Every time I'd go in there, he'd watch me like I was going to steal something. I mean, I know all of us Mexicans do look the same, but it doesn't mean we're all gonna rob ya!!!!!!

    I second that, I've had my pack mule for almost a year and I love it. Its a little pricey but its well worth the investment. The FireStore.com sells them if you want to take a look.

    Hope this helps, Stay Safe

    I'm guessing they're only big enough to hold those midgets who do lucha libre... what would you want those for in a fire building anyways? Just a scientific wild-姧 guess here, but their spandex would probably melt pretty quickly... ¿que no?

    I think the main difference is biner versus beaner. Which one is not PC and which one is on my harness?

    Sorry, I didn't notice that when I hit the spell check. Not trying to offend our southern friends.

    Maybe you'll give me a straight answer. What's the gripe you guys have with pick head axes? I have friends on your job(including a guy been on a Harlem truck since '80) and all I get is "they're useless". Another friend who worked at R-3 a dozen or so years back said the picks should all be ground off and made presentation axes. I say it's a poor workman who blames his tools. He says f..u.. and that's it.
    Maybe this can be a new version of smoothbore-vs-fog.

    Hey, you guys also gave us "agujero del fuego" salsa and Carlos Mencia, so it's all good.
    Oh wait, Mencia's Honduran, so... oh hey, how bout that great authentic Mexican food at Taco Bell???
