I recently got you guys a HELL OF A DEAL on the HMMWV Pioneer Tool Racks at Old Grouch Military Surplus. In spite of the fact that the FedX driver had to paraphrase Jaws and say, “I think we need a bigger truck” (details here) there are some left so check out the deal if you didn’t get in on it yet. You can see that here, again it is for HMMWV Pioneer Tool Racks
So anyway obviously at 23 and change these racks don’t include the tools. Old Grouch would pay more to ship them than they would cost. So I had him put together a list (complete with Amazon links) of the tools that fit like a glove and mimick the orginal TO&E for this rack.
For you non military types TO&E is a ” table of organization and equipment”. Every vehicle, building, company, individual solider, etc. has one.
So here you go, you can order this stuff on Amazon, if you have prime let them eat the shipping or you can ID the exact items and source them locally. Many of you will have equipment that already fits. Also non standard equipment may fit as well for your individual needs. But if you want to outfit one they way they were intended, here is your list of gear, strait from Old Grouch himself!
These are the tools we have tested and confirmed fit the tool racks. We have tested each of these to ensure they work and fit. The same or similar models should also be available at local hardware or home improvement stores.
- Best quality has the head and handle separate Head Graintex 5lb http://amzn.to/1QzPNqV if you get this you will also need, A Handle Seymour 36” Hickory Handle http://amzn.to/1BeFzpc (this option is best on the pick)
- A Lower Cost option is the Truper 5lb pick mattock fiberglass handle http://amzn.to/1FYhE9Z
Hope this helps you guys out. If you already have gear great, if you are not sure about your gear wait until you get your rack and check it out. But if you need it all or some Tim went the extra mile to provide us all with a great TO&E at two different price points.
