Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JT Awesome System With One Significant Flaw
This review is for the Tough System DS Carrier along with the Tough System toolboxes (DS 300, DS 150, and the DS 400). All highly recommended. See attached photos!
This carrier is a BEAST! I've nicknamed it "The Monster Truck." It's square-pipe frame is rugged and I don't expect it to be damaged by anything anytime soon. The wheels are large and solid. It's nice that the loading "tray" folds up for storage. The durable plastic arms which you slide the DS boxes onto fold inward so that the carrier becomes a hand-truck for moving heavy items, further increasing this tool's utility. (You'll need an Allen Key to remove the plastic arms because one was not provided. I forget which size key.) The significant flaw I mentioned in the title of this review is that it is difficult to roll this carrier through common, finished door-frames. I've attached a picture to demonstrate this. You have... maybe a half inch of space on either side of the carrier as you roll through a finished door frame? Be very careful if you're using this carrier inside a client's nice house as you might rub against and damage painted surfaces.
The DS 300, DS 150, and the DS 400 boxes are tough and they hold A LOT! They're also an incredible value for the price; I expect to own this system for life. You'll notice in the photos that I've made a slight modification to the DS 300 toolbox: I've drilled holes into the top so that a light-duty, removable vise can be mounted to the top of the box. Unfortunately, none of these boxes have a "V-way" built into their lids, so if you're trying to secure a pipe you're out of luck. I do NOT recommend using the yellow, plastic clips on the side of the boxes. They don't inspire confidence: I'm paranoid that they'll break under load and a DS system box will crash onto my foot. Otherwise these boxes are fantastic!

I bought the cart to move three full loaded storage boxes...great design and very sturdy. Wide enough to give stability on uneven ground and narrow enough to fit through doorways.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheeks Good things dont come cheap! This is a BIG,HEAVY DUTY carrier. I'm impressed!
I had it shipped to my Home Depot. When I picked it up it came in huge box. I was shocked at the size and quality. I drove home with my jaw on my lap.
I bought the large box, the 2 drawer chest and the small box. Everything fit nicely. I just had to buy some regular shackle MasterLock resetable combination locks that fit perfectly around both holes on the boxes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Heavy duty, easy to use and store
Built very well, and like that it folds flat for easy storing. We went to our local Home Depot to get two of the boxes for this system, but they don't stock them and they looked at every store within 2 hours of us and none of them stocked the boxes either, so we had to order them online and are waiting for them to be delivered. But the carrier itself so far has been very rugged, we have used it to haul a heavy grill through snow because the delivery truck couldn't get down our driveway with the ice and snow, and the large wheels made it easy to move.
When we do get the boxes I liked that there is a built in metal rod that you can fold over the back of the boxes and attach a lock, so that people can't steal your boxes off the carrier. It is also extra wide, so you can move a lot of things on it, but it is still designed to fit through a standard doorway so you can roll all your tools into a house or shop door.
Can't wait to get the rest of the boxes, and if they are made as rugged as this carrier it will be a great system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ASAP Just want we needed
This allows our installers to keep all the bins, neat and compact. Now they can just roll in the cart with all that is needed for the job instead of having to make multiple trips to the service vehicle. We ordered them and they shipped directly to our office in about a week or so. Very Satisfied.
