Where to find a tool pannier?

I am a maintenance person (vehicles/buildings etc.) on a 5000 acre farm. The tools I need for most routine jobs fit in a 56 pocket "bucket boss." Is there a pannier version of this concept out their? I am looking to use a bike instead of a car to access various parts of the property for routine maintenance and would like to organize my tools in panniers. I can use a milk crate on the rack for the odd tools needed for specialized jobs. Thanks for any input.

Can't speak for something that will do exactly what you're looking for, but you may want to check with the Utility Cycling subforum...

Are you talking about the nylon canvas things that sit in a bucket? Why not turn the bucket into a pannier, and put the bucket boss in it, and just hang it on your rack? There are several DIYs on the forums discussing making plastic buckets into panniers. Search, grasshopper; the solution is at hand.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

Bucket boss and other brands make tool rolls that don't go on buckets, you roll and unroll them. I have one for my bike tools, one for vehicle tools, etc.
