Dewalt’s ToughSystem tool boxes are good. Very good. Do you know what makes them even better? When they’re on sale.
It has been a while since I talked about the ToughSystem in its own post. But that doesn’t mean I think any less of them than before. I LOVE these tool boxes.
Update: The price is back up at $48. I’d say check back soon, it could drop back down again.
Much of my sentiments from this long-ago modular tool box comparison still stand. Very soon, I’m going to have to do a Milwaukee Packout vs. Dewalt ToughSystem comparison, and that’s going to be quite tough.
While I like the Milwaukee Packout system so far – check here for lots of photos and more Packout information – I have a lot of Dewalt ToughSystem cases, and they offer a lot while costing less.
Currently, you can buy TWO of these large ToughSystem tool boxes for the price of just one large Packout box.
The last time I ordered more Dewalt ToughSystem large tool boxes was back in 2015. They were $52 each, and there was a $20 off $100 promo at Amazon. I ended up paying $90 for 2, so $45 each. That’s how I ordered most of my ToughSystem cases, during Amazon’s holiday season or Father’s Day promos.
Those same boxes are on sale at Amazon right now, for $38 each.
Something similar happened last year – Home Depot had a special on a ToughSystem combo set, and Amazon price matched the components. I assume that’s what’s going on now.
These large ToughSystem tool boxes are large, sturdy, and durable. There’s a removable tray. Side handles. A fold-down top handle. It’s waterproof (IP65).
Some of my ToughSystem cases have been in non-environmentally-controlled storage for a couple of years now, and they show no signs of wear. Inside, there’s no rust, corrosion, or anything of the sort.
These are good tool boxes at a fantastic price. I only wish that I needed more so that I could take advantage of this deal.
