The beauty of the new Packout cabinet is that you can mount it to the wall, as part of Milwaukee’s new workshop storage system, or add it to your stack of Packout tool box.
As with drawered tool boxes, the quick-access door allows users to grab their tools and supplies without having to undock an entire stack of tool boxes. You just lift the flap, and there’s your gear.
A lot of Packout users have been asking for more easy-access tool box solutions. Does this new cabinet suit your needs and wants, or are you still waiting for something a little different?
