We needed some additional storage for the shop and our friends at Husky stepped up with this 60″ workbench which features 10 drawers (1 full length), as well as a very handy slide up pegboard backer with shelf HOTC6010BB2M ($699, Home Depot). We really like the versatility with how easy the pegboard backer can slide out of the way for full 360 access as a work table. While $700 isn’t chump change, other tool chests and storage options can cost significantly more, it really seems like a pretty good value for the money.
One of the most impressive innovations that we saw at the Milwaukee 2017 New Product Symposium (#NPS17) was their new PACKOUT Modular Storage System. This groundbreaking new storage system seems to be generating a lot of buzz, and was somewhat unexpected by the Coptool crew. The new PACKOUT system does very well in addressing current issues with modular storage systems and introduces innovative and forward thinking solutions that will definitely please the Milwaukee Tool user base.
Weather Guard is a well-known name when it comes to tool storage. A quick glance in the back of trucks on the road and on jobsites will show that Weather Guard has a fair share of the field. Their reputation for high quality boxes and storage shows too, anyone that I have talked to about Weather Guard seems to be very impressed with their quality and strength. we recently obtained one of their Defender Series Saddle Truck Boxes ($729), and can say that the quality and look is a solid value.
To say the Husky 22” Rolling Tote ($129, Home Depot) is big is an understatement, this bag is massive. The 22” bag is part of the Husky Pro Grade line of tool bags, which are constructed from heavy duty, double walled nylon and feature higher quality stitching and zippers as well over their red-colored counter-parts. The Husky Pro Grade line is distinguishable by mostly black colored bags with red trim, while the home owner grade Husky bags are mostly red.
