Shear bolts & tool carrier

I posted this here so that all could see it. If your anything like me you do more then just your own driveway. When your down the block this will save you from having to run home to get your shear bolts.
I used what I had available, a flexible 1.5" PVC tube. You can use any pipe material that you like. The threaded nut has a string running thru it attached to the bag of bolts & sockets so that I can get the bag out easily. I plan to spray the nut red just in case I should drop it in the snow. Thus making it easier to find.

I find it easier to put the bolts & sockets into the plastic bag, then roll that bag up. My plan is to attach it to the plastic bar used to clean the chute

Happy Snow Blowing

Looks like a good idea. I have considered something similar, but never got around to it. I know MTD blowers have a few holes in the dash panel with extra shear bolts in them. I have seen some pictures of Craftsman blowers that have a small tool box molded into the top of the belt cover.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.
