Blocks for under the mill legs on sloping ground.

Extra pair of gloves.

Scoop or snow shovel to move sawdust out of your way.

Set of B57 belts for the bandwheels and head up/down and forward/reverse belts.

Any other spare parts you might have that transport in the bottom of the tool box.

Most everything else important has been mentioned already by others.

For you guys that forget your mill key, I keep one in the truck at all times.   The other stays in the barn where I mill at home.

You also need to remember to bring everything home with you as well.   ;)

      I haven't left them yet, but I almost did, so now I always put my mill fenders where I will trip over them if I try to get in the truck to leave. 

I did show up at a job once 45 miles away with no band blades.  ::)   Had the wife meet me halfway with a box.

My truck is my tool box, it's an old city repair truck
. It is equiped with a hydrolic tailgate lift, electric winch, heavy duty hitch, fixed tool boxes and even a heavy duty compressor driven off the motor.I use this all the time...I have a complete set of air tools and it's great for cleaning off sawdust.

I try to carry all my portable milling needs at all times including a couple lengths of 4x4 and6x6
for tracks close to the mill.

Also, before heading out I try to send or drop off a sheet showing the client a good way to prepare the logs for milling and preparing the work site for a safe work enviroment. I also suggest he provide many of the tools already suggested, less wear and tear on your tools (especially your chain saws)
