Garden-Tool-Storage Ideas:

We all have outdoor tools that we use frequently during the three outdoor seasons of the year, Spring, Summer, and Fall. This includes things like rakes, brooms, spades, shovels, and more.

Over the summer you constantly use them and like some people often leave some outside as well.

The problem comes when it is time to put these items away you suddenly find that you have run out of storage space, or they're horribly disorganized.

Garden-Tool-Storage Unit by Rubbermaid

One great storage options for tools is the Rubbermaid 5E28 Deluxe Tool Tower Rack with Casters. The nice thing about this particular storage rack is that it can accommodate up to 40 tools!

Plus it is on 4 casters which makes it simple to move around as required.

The casters are also lockable which is a nice feature to have for sure.

The base of the storage unit has a rough grid pattern on it and this ensures that your tools won’t slip off.

There are front clips for easy access to both sides. The entire unit is very easy to assemble with no tools required.

The Rubbermaid 5E28 measures 37 x 18 x 37 inches and weighs just 11.8 ounces. It also allows you to store items such as shovels and rakes with the head downwards. This one feature is proving to be really popular with customers. It is perfect for long handled tools and can even hold a weed trimmer which comes with a cord storage holder.

A similar product that is more suitable for smaller places, particularly corners, is the Rubbermaid 5A47 30-Tool Corner Tool Rack.

This model will hold up to 30 tools and is anchored to the wall with an ‘s’ hook which is not included. This hook is for using on the wall but the large base is very stable and sturdy.

The Corner Tool Rack measures 24.5 x 5.1 x 32 inches and can be shipped outside of the U.S. The items do come with free shipping and delivery as well.

What Customers Are Saying About the Rubbermaid-Storage Tool Racks

Both of these tool storage racks are receiving some great reviews on Amazon. One of the drawbacks mentioned was that over time the material does start to sag. This is especially true if you mount the corner tool rack against the wall. The weight of the tools over a period of time drags the material down. One customer stated that although he loved the design it would have been better constructed from metal.

Other comments include:

  • It was so easy to assemble I did it in the kitchen and it took only about five minutes
  • It is very stable and the wheels make it very easy to move around
  • I looked at several other similar units and Rubbermaid's is much stronger and more stable
  • A good deal for the money
  • I highly recommend it for anyone trying to corral a number of yard tools in a small place
