Milwaukee Tool has announced their new XL-sized Packout tool box, model 48-22-8429.
As its name suggests, the new Packout XL features an extra-large depth for fitting bigger cordless power tools and equipment.
The Packout XL tool box is an expansion of Milwaukee’s modular tool storage system and should fit all existing accessories.
In this image, the Packout XL tool box is shown stacked on top of the rolling cart. The XL is notably making this Milwaukee Tool’s largest and highest volume Packout tool box.
This extra large-sized tool box can fit larger tools than Milwaukee’s other Packout tool boxes, or a greater volume of smaller tools and equipment.
Milwaukee Packout XL Tool Box Measurements
- Exterior: 21.8″ W x 15.5″ D x 16.9″ H
- Interior: 19.1″ W x 14.6″ D x 13.9″ H
The Packout XL comes with a removable half-width storage tray that can be placed on either side. There’s also a slot down the middle of the front and rear walls, useful for DIY dividers and accessories.
The XL batch features side handles and a larger latching release handle.

Milwaukee’s newest Packout tool box fits larger tools, or more tools.
Milwaukee Tool’s next-largest Packout tool box, model 48-22-8425, measures 11.3″ tall (exterior). This new XL measures 16.9″, which is 50% taller.
The rolling tool box, 48-22-8426, has greater on-paper specs, but that’s because of the height of the handle. Looking at the product image of the XL stacked on top of the Packout rolling tool box, you can tell it’s slightly taller.
With this new tool box, Milwaukee now says they have over 35 different solutions for users to create their custom storage solutions with.
The XL box is said to be fully compatible with Packout accessories, I would probably not use this with the wall mount.
