Milwaukee has come out with a new organizer tool box, model 48-22-8030. Milwaukee’s 48-22-8030 organizer isn’t their first foray into tool storage or organization. There’s also their recent tool backpack, zippered pouches I haven’t yet written about, and an upcoming ball bearing tool storage combo that’s engineered with some innovative and highly appealing features.
The new Milwaukee organizer comes with (8) small and (2) large removable organizer bins. Milwaukee says that the 4″ x 4″ size of the smaller bins allows them to be swapped out for common electrical boxes.
Not only are the bins removable, they each have 2 integrated screw slots, so you can mount them to common jobsite materials to keep fasteners, supplies, and parts right where you need them.
Each organizer features two front latches, for opening the lid and accessing contents, and two side latches for stacking and connecting organizers together for easier carrying or storage. Unlike most other organizers on the market, Milwaukee’s can be opened even when latched together.
The lid is designed to hold the bins in place with no gaps, creating a seal that keeps bin contents from spilling out and into other bins. There is also an integrated gasket which provides a weather seal to protect organizer contents from the elements.
The organizer’s lid is clear, and presumably impact-resistant, making it easy to quickly identify and locate contents. The organizer also features a reinforcing rib for greater strength. It also looks like Milwaukee beefed up the handle hinge for strength and durability.

I like the look of the new organizer, and especially the lid-mounted side latches that enables users to access the contents of an organizer even when there’s another one secured on top.
This looks to be another solid new product offering by Milwaukee. I wish that they would come out with a slimmer model that’s better suited for holding smaller parts, but that probably doesn’t fit into their strategy. In the meantime, my Stanley organizers will have to do.
