The Milwaukee Packout Toolbox is Nice, but the DECKED Tool Storage System with Drawers is SWEEEET
There is an old adage that “A man is as good as his tools.” This saying does apply to any industry where proper organization, orderly, and efficient arrangement of tools is required for ease of access to enhance productivity. One thing you may not afford to do as a field service guy is lose a critical piece of equipment in the middle of your job or have to waste your time in the course of a quick repair task hollowing through a huge heap of tools to find a particular one. No doubt, looking professional as a handyman is about having the right tool for the job at just the right time.
Unquestionably, you need a good toolbox. But there is more to the tools game than just storage. You want to be sure your tools will be secure, safe from elements, preserved adequately for longer shelf life, and well kept to avoid hazards. You want them where you can see them clearly, so you’d easily pick the ones you need. The Milwaukee Packout Rolling toolbox is a good option for organizing your handy implements, but if you want your work made easier with your tools kept working flawlessly for more extended periods, you need the DECKED Drawer System. Here is why.
It may not matter what you use your equipment for, whether hunting, outdoor activities like camping, field service work, or repair work, you will find that tool organization is more of a necessity than a luxury. The Milwaukee pack-out storage system has been the go-to toolbox for many. This tool organization system is designed for use by professional handymen. The packout functionality lets users interlock and interchange a wide range of heavy-duty organizers, toolboxes, and storage totes in various configurations.
This toolbox features high-impact resistant polymers, all-terrain wheels, and an industrial-grade extension handle. It boasts unmatched flexibility and a payload of up to 250lbs. It also has a sturdy frame to withstand harsh job site conditions and is fully compatible with other Milwaukee Packout accessories as well as some storage equipment from other brands. Indisputably, the Milwaukee packout-rolling toolbox is a commendable cargo and tools organization equipment, especially when one is faced with outdoor job situations that require a lot of movement; the rolling functionality is essential. But it won’t be long before your toolbox develops gritty sidewalls and finally becomes crappy.
Agreeably the Milwaukee Packout rolling toolbox is one of a kind. Take, for instance, the Milwaukee 22 in. packout rolling modular toolbox, which is quite rugged, flexible, and spacious enough for storing medium-sized equipment. This brilliant toolbox is such a piece of handy equipment for light garage jobs. But at times, you'd be faced with a need for something more versatile, stronger, with bigger storage. I mean, a 250lb payload box is quite compressed in space and limits you somehow; besides, it doesn't offer more choice in terms of storing lengthy equipment such as guns and fishing rods.
Another drawback of the Milwaukee toolbox system is that it comes as a pack of boxes mounted up on a trolley in a vertical version. A major problem with this is that it is quite constricted and centers weight in one location, limiting options for more spread out and bulky storage.
So we’ll have a look at DECKED, which offers everything the Milwaukee packout toolbox offers and goes a step ahead to guarantee strength, style, and top-of-the-class ergonomics.
What is So Special about the DECKED Drawer System?
DECKED is bigger in terms of the storage surface area. Other than the drawers, the upper area offers a flat platform for securing bigger or voluminous cargo hence more capacity and therefore more haulage capability. For example, because your storage is not restricted, you'd bring both small and big cargo for a remarkable day out in the woods. Therefore with DECKED, you can do much more compared to the Milwaukee tool box system.

The DECKED Drawer System comes as a standard set of several accessories (The Desert Tan D-Box, The Drawerganizer, The Divider system, and The Desert Tan CrossBox).
