Re: Dewalt TStak Storage System


As you can tell organization in the xl is impossible.

Btw i took the insert out of the xl and put it in the large.

Thanks Rich! I wondered about organization with the xl. I am thinking of making inserts that drop in.

Re: Dewalt TStak Storage System


Ok...so here's what I am thinking of doing. If I use one of these in the bottom, I can keep some organization along with the tray and the included tool holder. Then the only large loose tools in the bottom will be my hammers, flat bars, and fat lip oxy tool belt. Thoughts Rich? They didn't ship my boxes out before the New years weekend so I won't have them until Tuesday.

Noted...I will have to see how the box will work with my standard tool supply when it arrives. I will take a picture of what I am hoping to organize inside the box tomorrow.

The height of that is 11" i wonder how that will fit with the tray. The tray kills like 4-6". I took mine out of my xl.

If you keep large items in the bottom, then that organizer over that it should be pretty organized.

I have a few small klein bags i group similar tools in.

Re: Dewalt TStak Storage System


These are my every day, every job, gotta have tools. Our truck and van is stocked with the power tools and cordless combo kits. I also have my electric tools, finish tools, and plumbing tools in separate tool boxes. I am a little worried the xl may be to big...

Re: Dewalt TStak Storage System


actually the 20v dewalt (without batt on) and a 12V with the batt on will fit perfectly in that top tray, with space for two 20v batteries. Why didnt I take a pic!

I have two 4" grinders, 1 ridgid 18v impact with battery, ridgid charger, dewalt charger all in the lower level of a large.I won't bring it like this, but it emptied out two soft cases and a bucket.

I bought the cart. Its pretty heavy duty. I did not buy a small case though- it seemed less than useful other than being uniform. If I can get by with the small- I could probably manage with a soft case. I bought two larges, and 2 xl. You can actually get away with 2 XL on the cart- and lock a large on top via the xl's locking tabs.

the large is pretty stellar. The part that stinks is that it does not fit well into a gang box.

Most gang boxes are 23w 24h 48".

Depending on how your box is made.. it may not fit so well. I loose two inches in the middle, I gotta look more closely, but the dewalt box is 21" wide. They vary only in depth and length.

in theory you should be able to fit 3XL's (15x3=45) but with random cutouts for handles, locks, etc.. I think thats a stretch. at 15" high, you'd have maybe enough space to fit a small box... but most boxes have less than 22" inner usable space. So maybe 7" of clearance.

you might be able to fit 6 larges though. Maybe... its pretty box dependent.

From what you have on that table- you could have it very nearly organized, still on the belt, within that case, your day's thermos of coffee, lunch, snack, and a few spare batteries. all in the XL no problems.

As a plus- The XL is the perfect height to sit on.

Seriously, it is the best height. The large isn't bad, but the XL wins hand down on my butt test.

Organized is the key. I don't want to have to take all the tools out to get to the one I need on the bottom. My whole reason for this is because I switch between the truck and the van. I just want to grab my case and go. And I don't want to worry if it's raining out.

Here is the box I set up for my drill and impact. The storage on top is handy for all my extra bits.

I think it will suit you fine. You probably have 80% of the same tools on your belt all the time- just grab the extra items you'd need. In that regard, you can keep your tool belt loaded and put it on the side, with all the other items neatly stored away to take as needed for your load out. Hence one nice box to store everything in. It really is pretty tough. I like it a lot.

Most of my work is in hospitals in my area. I can just stack up whichever boxes I need from my gang box put them on a cart with my material and go.
