As you might be aware, Ryobi LINK is the brand’s Home Depot-exclusive modular tool box and workshop storage system.
The Ryobi Link system launched in late-2021, expanded with new accessories in mid-2022, and then additional tool box and accessories were announced in late 2022.
Many pros, contractors, and tradespeople use Ryobi cordless power tools and accessories, as the brand offers numerous versatile solutions that fit certain gaps in users’ tool needs.
But are any pros out there using Link system tool boxes yet?
In a recent social media post (embedded below), Ryobi says:
Roll into the jobsite with RYOBI LINK Mobile Storage.
Their video shows a worker rolling a Link tool box combo through the dirt and into an unfinished residential jobsite.
This has me wondering if any pros are using Link tool boxes in such a manner yet.
Some of you are likely to say something along the lines of “hahaha, no way, never.” Okay, but why? Aesthetics? Pricing? Brand image?
Objectively speaking, their pricing is a bit high, both in comparison to competing brands’ and for what I would expect from Ryobi.
However, the specs and functionality seem reasonably competitive.
To be frank, I see Ryobi Link as a consumer and DIYer storage and organizational system. But that doesn’t mean it’s not used by pros. If pros are using Ryobi tool boxes, I’m curious to hear about their experiences.
How have the tool boxes held up, and why did you choose Ryobi Link over other brands’ modular tool box and storage systems?
Personally, I don’t expect to see pros rolling up to jobsites with Link system tool boxes, but that could potentially change. What would it take, aside from lower prices? Van and truck mounting accessories? Solutions missing from other brands’ tool box systems?
