Not sure if youíre kidding but its definitely a sacrifice of space for the sake of grabbing 2 cases with all drill driver ready instead of rolling ALL my cordless in with the rolling box.

Not kidding. Space for me is a premium. Not packing that to the gills is a sin.

Re: Milwaukee Packout, Storage Boxes


My backorder came in. 3 stack plus slim organizer.

Questions:
1. Had anyone had issues leaving this out in snow and ice? It seems like the way they lock together could become a big issue if you leave this thing out in your truck bed.

2. Can you use this as a stool? I mean, I know it says right on the lid not to. But, can you? The lid doesn't seem too heavy duty.

Re: Milwaukee Packout, Storage Boxes


I've stood on mine. I keep my feet away from the center as much as possible. It's IP65 rated for weather. But it's not rated to be free from locking up from ice. Maybe make a nice fitted cover for it.

Re: Milwaukee Packout, Storage Boxes


Iíve stood on an LBoxx before with no issues. The key is to stand on the outer edges, not right in the middle. By the way, I weigh about 250, and an LBoxx is way lighter weight than the Packout.

Also, proceed at your own risk

That little drill box is a nice kit with the molded plastic dropped in. One thing Iím noticing is that you cannot overfill the bins or the lid squares wonít drop in all the way. This also means you donít have complete control of what bins go where. While the locking between boxes system works well, I donít think itís a perfect system.

There is no perfect system. But yes, they could have easily solved that by making the rectangular indents into square indents so both would fit underneath.

We use BBQ covers for a lot of stuff. Might work for the packout.

I used a razor knife to cut the small containers.

I've stood in the middle of any of my pack out main three size boxes. And clear top ones only if cups are inside. I'm 250......ish
