You might want to consider covering your big tools. I hauled a piano home from Canton, OH - from my inlaws to my house. To keep it dry, we layed a tarp in the pick-up bed, loaded the piano on the tarp and wrapped the tarp up around the piano. The tarp was held by 200 MPH tape (duct tape - if its good enough for NASCAR, its good enough for your car). Then we took another tarp and put over the top - again held on by 200 MPH tape.
I have also used this method hauling kiln dried lumber during the "rainy season" - that is the season when it is too cold to snow up here. This method works quite well. Also, consider putting some rust protectant on your tools.
