On my old Honda 250 I used a plastic milk jug basket. Used bungee straps to hold it down. Works for smaller objects. Just saying.
I use the plastic crates from HomeDepot in the bed of my mule.
One has fencing tools/materials.
One has general cutters, machetes, axe, etc.
One has hand tools.
I just rotate them as needed.
Sometimes, they get bungied to the front of the Honda Rancher too!
