Yes. Love them. I use them as saw horses. Because I'm always looking for someplace to set down the tools next to what I'm cutting and such.

They would be great with just a plane surface or few holes for clamp downs or dogs.

One Job I set 3 abreast and stacked 40sheets of sheet rock on them to work off of.

I picked up this DeWalt Tough Boxx with the wheels & handle on it...49$ It seems a bit stonger than the Ridgid Boxx-cart.

I looked at this one the other day and noticed they had a metal pin for the box-to-box latch. Happy to see that, the plastic pins on the other tough system boxes keep popping out on me and I'm pretty gentle with my stuff.

Right , I saw that too. I don't like much about the tiny yellow latches at all. The Ridgid latches are bigger and better.

Agreed. I would have went the Ridgid route for biger boxes, but they took too long to come to Canada.
The tiny yellow latches and lack of convenient way to lock them all together are their weakness for sure. But having the drawer option for the tough system is mighty handy.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I have a bunch of tough system boxes, and never bother with the yellow latches. Each box has feet that next into the box below. I can carry 3 of them stacked together, and none of them move around at all.

I have the dolly/cart as well, but find it's more time consuming to use it, and the wheels are too small to roll over unfinished sites (lumpy dirt, gravel etc.) anyway.

They should have made that cart lighter IMO. Loaded with an XL, L, and S box full of tools/fasteners, it's almost too much to haul up a set of stairs.

I had a kioti about the same size. Man I miss that thing. Best tractor I've ever had.

I welded up a hitch receiver plus a set of hooks for the top of the bucket. Then I welded up a set of forks to hook on to the hooks so I could use it as a forklift.
