needs to improve wheels
After 4 months, the wheels came off, and it’s my second Packout with the same problem.

Possible fix for wheels which break, great storage system!
I recently purchased the Milwaukee Packout Rolling Tool Box. So far so good, no issues or complaints. I like the build quality and the fact that the design was very well thought out, I can store a LOT of tools safely and securely, but most importantly in a very neat and organized way. I have added packout boxes to extend the collection. The one big problem I did notice before I bought the box that a lot of buyers have complained that the wheels are the Achilles Heel of the system and can break and fail on the inner wheel hub. The issue seems to stem from the fact that the portion of the inner hub which has a tendency to break has no reinforcement to hold it rigid, there are no wheel spokes or ribs on the inner hub, and hence it is the weakest spot on the wheel. After looking at pictures of the wheels which have broken for other buyers I decided to make a modification to try to strengthen the wheel hub at its weak point. I bought 2 hose clamps, the bands on these hose clamps are 1/2 an inch wide and the inner hub is only 1/4 inch wide so it is too narrow to fit the hose clamp (by the way, the diameter of the wheel hub is 1 1/2 inches). I fixed this issue of the inner wheel hub being too narrow for the 1/2 inch wide hose clamp band by cutting the plastic ribbing on each inner wheel hub back a 1/4 inch on the inner wheel hub with a utility knife and smoothing it out flush with the rest of the inner wheel hub, which gives you a flush flat surface on the inner wheel hub which now is 1/2 an inch wide, which is wide enough to fit the hose clamp on it. You then get two 1/2 inch washers and put one on each side of the axle of the tool box, this washer is to provide enough room that the screw portion of the hose clamp (which protrudes slightly wider than the band of the hose clamp) does not hit or rub on the side of the toolbox as the wheel turns. Tighten the hose clamps as tight as they will go on the inner wheel hubs, make sure you haven't forgotten to add the 1/2 inch washer to each wheel and then reassemble the wheels to the axle using the lock nut that came stock from the factory. It's takes maybe 30 minutes to do all this work but this hose clamp should provide the strength and rigidity that the stock wheel does not have on the inner wheel hub. Hope the pictures help explain what I did. Good luck!

Great deal for my new Packout rolling box. It’s very sturdy. Has a bit of plasticky smell inside. I like that it’s made in Israel. The lid snaps at the top of its swing so it stays open when you want. The box arrived the next day delivered by what looked like a Lyft or Uber driver in his private car. This is my first Packout box. I’m looking forward to more to stack onto it.

Make it a real tool box
I got a half inch piece of plywood and cut it to 19in wide with a 1/8 dado (standard blade width on a table saw nothing fancy) on both sides. 13 3/4 tall. At the bottom on both corners 1 1/4 wide 1/2 tall knotch has to be cut for slope at the bottom. Then got a Husky bucket jockey and cut the sides so they are flush. I used rivets to hold it in place. This is around $20.

The tool to get if you are installing more than a few expansion pex fittings or need to do so in tight quarters. Like all Milwaukee tools this is solidly built and performs its function well. The manual alternatives are terribly impractical and as a certified hand therapist I can tell you they won't do your joints any favors. This not only expands but also rotates the expansion head which is something manual versions do not do and is necessary for proper installation. This fits into tight spaces which in plumbing is an inevitability. You can tell that 1" is about the max size fitting this is built for as it works pretty hard at that level, be sure to use the included lubricant and keep the second battery ready to rotate a fresh one in when the other runs out of juice. This will allow uninterrupted use. Expansion pex is superior if you care about maximum and uninhibited water flow.

I recently bought this tool box to go along with my large pack out tool box and pack out organizer. Quality seems to very good and plenty of room. Only complaint would be the wheel wells take up some of the room in the bottom to prevent laying other power tool boxes down flat but still doable. Not sure why so many have problems with the wheels breaking, seem pretty well built to me but I haven't really used mine in a rough environment. Overall I am impressed like all my other Milwaukee products, built to last!!

Awesome quality. The hinge of THE lid couldn't even survive 21st or so opening. It couldn't even make it to my job site. I can't believe I paid $141 for it. I can't believe I paid $129 for it. Thank you Milwaukee for such a good experience.
