A follow up on the Dewalt TSTAK Hand truck. Well first off I do not think it is worth $130.00.My Bosch folding hand truck was a $100.00. It is on the same platform as the 4 wheel dolly I have.Does it work.Yes. Would I buy it again Yes because it works as a system.If you do rough work and framing where there are no sidewalks or paved driveways. Go with the Dewalt Tough Box system. I had about 125 LBS on it to try it out and it did good. I like it better than the Bosch because it has the 2 swivel wheels on the front The discription say the rear wheels are air filled, they are solid tires. There is room behind the boxes to carry a level or straight edge.

I haven't yet, actually. The night I posted this, my wife went into labor with our second kid. Little bugger was 6 weeks early, so I've been a little preoccupied. Thanks for all the great info guys. I'll be posting my set up in here soon

Nice review thanks. So I think i want about 15 different boxes lol. That could be less if I go with tough boxes to.

My plan it to redo my trailer also to make everything fit. That should give me more room in there as well.

Being able to wheel the handtruck and strap it in would be cool to.

When you get back in action. I can't wait to see what you come up with for your boxes.

Re: TStak Set Ups


So far I have 12 Tstak boxes and 2 more on the way I am really starting to like the system .With the smaller boxes you could segregate your tools better.I started to emty out the Tough boxes.I had almost all of my tools in 5 Tough boxes. They were just too heavy and the cart is big.I may end up selling them. I am 70 years old the smaller boxes work better for me

They are like potato chips you can't stop once you start. But they are cheap enough

I've gotten a few more since these pics. As my trailer setup gets refined I'll post some updated pics.

That they are. I'm up to 17 boxes now, just got 8 more in this week. Still haven't gotten them all organized yet, but I'm getting there.

Someone suggested that the lid from the long handled box, could be swapped out for the lid on the deep box, so that's what I'm gonna do with 2 setups.

I did that with one of my deep boxes. I was able to fit two cordless nailers in there, with the top tray. It holds literally everything I need including about 10k fasteners. It's really convenient

Re: TStak Set Ups


Got 4 of the clear top tstak organizers the other day. So far still working on how to set them up.

(Bought the van behind it for $600 too)

Re: TStak Set Ups


I started trying to fit out the box's . I think I'm going to be happy. I'm thinking of picking up some kaizen foam. What are you guys using for inserts if anything? One cool thing the handle on the tray comes off . It fits nice in the small box . One thing I wish was they made a medium size box.

This is the tray in the small box . I probably won't leave it this way just playing with fit.

Re: TStak Set Ups


For the price, I'm really liking these Tstaks compared to the Bosch and other options.

One complaint though (and I'm not sure if mine are defective or not) is with the drawer units. I have both the single deep drawer and the double shallow drawer units, and the bottom middle of both of them have crowned up, making the bottom drawer stick when opening and closing.

I usually have those units at the bottom of whatever tower I have (since you don't need to open them to get what's inside....kind of makes sense), and I think the weight of everything above is what's causing the issue. I didn't notice the problem when I first got them....

Not a huge deal, and I doubt I'd need anymore drawers going forward (pretty handy but the two I have so far have fullfilled my immediate needs), but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed that.

No problem here yet.They work pretty good. The Tough box drawer unit I have had to do a little adjusting on the lock. It has the same drawer slides as the Tstack. Where you set them up at should not make differance because of the way they lock in. Try switching them for a little while and see what happens

Yeah mine all do that too. Urks me too. I only stack them 2 high as units. And I have been fixing the problem in my head but yet to apply any fixes since too busy.

Re: TStak Set Ups


How loaded up are you guys using with your TSTSAK ?
I mean some of these pics, you have them stacked 4-5 plus deep.
Worried about the unit on the bottom having too much weight sitting on them ?

I have a bunch of Toughs in S/L/XL and some are loaded so heavy, it's a b1tch to stack/unstack. However, I don't worry about the weight as I feel they are much heavier duty than the TSTASK.

I'm 160 and I used 2 big and 2 small boxes as a ladder on Saturday, wasn't worried 1 bit. They're pretty sturdy.

I also use a big and a little on the 4 wheel cart as my chair in the trailer, eat lunch on it all the time.

The Tough Box system is really heavy duty. They are heavy empty, start putting tools in them I can't lift them. Thats why I have the whole system for sale

I'm 240 & I used 2 tall drawer boxes & one deep box as a chair at lunch today. No flex whatsoever.
