Very disappointed in this unit. Draws don't open properly.
Very disappointed in this draw unit which sits under sister tool box. When upper tool box is loaded the draws of this unit will not open. Tool box above places pressure on draw sliders. The top tool box has to be almost empty for the draws of this unit to slide open properly.

Toughsystem drawer unit
I have just what I need in the system I have the extra large box. I took the drawer out and it will hold all my large saws drills. I put two drawer units on top of that one. I can keep my hand tools in these! I have the small one on top It hold my bits, blades & lots of small things! They all lock together on the cart all but the small on it is just attached to the top slider. It great now I can roll my table saw, miter saw and all my carpentry tools and slide in my pick up and take everything in a very quick move!!

Been using this to organize screws, nuts, dolphin clips and the like. The drawers open wide on quality drawer glides hardware so it's easy to reach your supplies. Easy to fit drills, batteries and recip saw in deep drawers. Handles are sturdy and large.
Don't leave this in the rain. And I wish this was the size of the 400. That would allow for deeper drawers or two drawers of different sizes and better weatherproofing. Love the idea of a drawer unit. Just seems a little rushed imho. The fit and finish on 2 of 3 units I've had so far is a little off. Warped drawer faces and stack clips forced me to exchange my first 2. The bottom drawer face on 1 of the replacements is concave. I don't know if I'll exchange since it works and stacks and I hate the return process. CPO does make exchanges fairly simple... They'll send it out when you call them to report that you dropped it off. All in all, I like drawers for organizing combined with the stacking and toughsystem rails makes this 3 out of 4 recommendation.

Best system on the market
Great system, this drawer unit can store cordless oscillating tool, cordless jig saw, in one drawer and has storage boxes with covers in the top drawer that can be removed if you want to store tools if you wish. Get the cart to move them around with if you get several case for the system, it brings the whole system together and makes set up faster moving several cases at one time

Great use for this ....Offshore fishing tackel station.
I have been looking for a semi-portable tackle station for quite some time. With the purchase of a new boat that was just about perfect, the one thing it was still lacking was a decent tackle station. I wanted something that had drawers and was semi portable as the boat is also used for harbor cursing with friends and family when not in use as an off shore blue fin tuna/shark machine. I had looked into custom tackle stations but just for a small unit, I was looking at over $900 uninstalled with only 4 small shelves. After much research, these seemed to be perfect. Stakable, locking drawers so they do not open when rolling back and forth unlike most of the metal too chests. These will be located fairly far forward so they will not be subject to much water. This model is not truly waterproof because of the drawers but this is also a positive as it should let moisture escape that may enter with wet lures. A great thing about this system is it is modular. This way I can have Tuna gear in one, shark in another, kite fishing gear/terminal tackle in another. Trolling lures, inshore ect. In this way, I can bring only what I need out on deck and have it in an accessible place with out taking up extra precious space. Between 3 of these units, a "small" tough box, 2 large tstak boxes, 2 2-drawer tstak boxes and a tstak large handle box, I have more storage space for #250 than I would for $1500 all with sliding drawers, movable and rugged.

I think they look better than a metal tool chest on the back of the boat. Although not as pretty as a custom tackle station, they sure look nicer than 5 different boxes all over the deck with the contents in a tangle.

The only other thing I wish they would do would be to make a tough system 1 and 3 drawer and to make them available in other colors (white would be nice) even if this was at an optional added cost.

How many boxes can you fit on the system?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what size boxes you use. I have 3 on one cart and 4 on another (you have to buy an additional set of brackets).
I like how you can lock the other boxes with your own lock. Can you do the same with the drawer unit?
Tyler on Feb 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the drawers can be locked.
How do the drawers lock?
Tyler on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The drawers lock with two metal clasps that slide up and into the crease.
