If I break one of the latches of one of the tool boxes, can I get a replacement box at home depot?

Hello JB Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience in finding information. On warranty questions, please reach out to DEWALT directly. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT

Will the DEWALT DWFP55130 2.5 Gal. Trim Compressor fit in this box?

Asked by Jackiestar March 20, 2021

To be honest I have no knowledge of that compressor, but if I were you I would just take the dimensions of the compressor and make sure you get the outermost dimensions-meaning any part that might over hang even a small amount and then look at the dimensions on the box, they are included on the item page. Always allow a bit of clearance on all sides depending on how you plan to put it into the box if using your hands on two sides you will need to add that amount of room in the clearance.

will this fit a DWS 715 mitre saw? if not, what can you recommend to store a 12 inch mitre saw?

Asked by porkchop March 6, 2021

I do not believe it will. It might barely fit in the DWST38000 (the 63 gallon rolling chest thing). You might want to custom build a box for it and look at having the box attach via u-bolts off the back (boxed saw, base hung against the back of the Dewalt rolling box) but weight balance and mobility will be an issue. Milwaukee has nice attachment plates you could use to attach a custom box to their systems. Might want to check those out.

Nope,its all one system

Does this 1st gen radio stack on the 2.0 boxes ?

Asked by Cappa January 15, 2021

Yes due to the black tabs on the 2.0 latch it connects and holds true to the 2.0 box.

toughsystem small tool box
Wanted something to store my batteries in to carry from job to job. I had to remive the trays that come inside the case, but it works perfectly. They all fit just right and i can stay organized. Awesome!

Kicked it one time..... and the latch breaks off. Basically worthless now.

This product is not worth the price it’s listed for. You’re paying for best and receiving good/better. If I had to do it again I’d either spend half the money on cheaper brands like ridgid or just get the comparable more sound Milwaukee set up. Attachment clamps are made from plastic, poorly designed considering these have space to hold quite some weight. One of mine broke the first day I had it. We’re now on week 4 and the metal clamps for the boxes themselves are already going.. losing their lock. You would think I packed it full and forced it shut but sadly don’t own enough stuff for the to even happen.. metal clamps on cheap thin plastic. The wheels are my last issue. They’re small And wide for the weight and get stuck on tiny stuff like pebbles/transition strips. I don’t think I should have to lower the case 45° to get it over stuff that small. Things I do like is the amount of space actually inside compared to other pack outs and the plastic shelving system is nice as well.

I highly recommend dewalt and the cases are heavy duty but the locking mechanism on it is way too easy to break. They need to fix the locks on thier products, they are very weak and break much to easy.

Love how rugged it is and also the good sound quality. Only critique is that I wish the charger cord was more heavy duty, a co worker tripped on it and broke it. Replacement is 70$!

So far so good on buying this. I have had it for a few months. The reason I bought it is because you can get to your bottom tool box without removing any others. What a great and novel idea! This feature works awesome. No more taking off tool boxes to get to the one I really want. Getting to the bottom tool box has always been a hassle but no more. The brackets are adjustable so you can mix and match what tool boxes you want to put on the cart. One complaint: I wish the cart was just a LITTLE bit taller, and if it was, you could then put 2 medium boxes & 2 small boxes on the cart at the same time. I think I have found a work around that will be good, but not as great as being able to do that. The cart is sturdy and durable. You can even leave it on a job site because the cart has the ability to lock the tool boxes onto the cart itself. Chain & lock the cart to a structure-->lock the tool boxes in place on the cart-->lock the top tool box so nobody can open it & take tools out. Another great feature is that you can take the brackets off and use it as a dolly. There are rails on the back to help with it up and down stairs, and they work well. This is the only tool/dolly system I would recommend to anyone because of being able to get to any tool box without removing another. The picture shows my current set up in my work truck. I chain it to my work truck to keep it from tipping over from a quick stop. Love this cart and DeWalt's set up.
