Dewalt Toolbox Review Toughsystem Toolbox
With a load capacity of up to 60kg and excellent exterior construction, the Dewalt Toughsystem Toolbox is indeed one tough storage equipment for all your handyman needs. This is the perfect companion for heavy duty use. It features an advanced locking system and superior protection for your tools. If you have a collection of big and bulky tools along with smaller tools, consider this the perfect box for all of them. It offers protection from dust and water and is smartly designed to offer easy transportation, storage, and maneuverability.
Let us take a look at some of its best features.
High Impact Protection
First off, let’s peek at what’s inside. This toolbox is designed with 4mm PP structural foam plastic that effectively protects all your tools. Whether you have electric drills in there, soldering iron, flashlights, or mini saw, you can be assured that they are safe inside because the foam plastic offers high impact protection.
Aside from that, it features a pressure relief valve which evenly distributes pressure inside and outside the box. So if you have to drive on bumpy roads with your toolbox inside your truck or if it gets dropped accidentally, you don’t have to worry about breakage inside.
For even more protection for your power tools, you can also add foam inserts. Usually, these foams come with the kits when you purchase the tools or you can also make your own.
Inside the box, you can use an optionally removable tote tray that you can use to store your smaller tools and accessories. This is quite handy when you have a collection of big and small tools so that the smaller ones don’t get lost in all the rubble of your bulkier tools. It makes things easy to find and saves you time.
If by any chance, you get caught in the rain, or someone accidentally spills liquid near your toolbox, your items will still be protected because of the IP65 seal in the lid. This is a high-performance seal that also repels dust. That means you can use it for long-term storage without worrying about dust building up in your tools.
Heavy Duty Latches
The toolbox is locked with heavy-duty metal latches that are designed with hinges of the same quality, so it offers added durability. Even when compared to other brands and models, these latches are extremely durable so you can put all your heavy tools inside and transport them in the toolbox with no fear of them falling off.
You can also use a padlock in the padlock eyes to add more security.
