October 20, 2014 – Milwaukee Tool showcased its 13-in. and 26-in. work boxes designed for “extreme durability” at its 2014 New Product Symposium.
The 13-in. version (48-22-8010) features a 16-in. seat height for repetitive tasks that are close to ground level. It boasts a box divider, floating tray, grip locking handle, indexing squares for stacking, a cut groove on the lid for cutting small diameter material, and a vertical tool storage tray for on-task tool access. Made with a high impact resistant polymer, it offers reinforced corners for impact resistance, allowing it to survive over 1000 drops with a 25-lb load, says the company. An integrated drip ledge lid helps protect tools from water, debris and contamination.
Meanwhile, the 26-in. model (48-22-8020) claims to survive over 1000 drops with a 50-lb load, as well as the everyday abuse of a jobsite. Its features include reinforced corners for impact resistance, recessed latches that boast protection against jobsite abuse, and buttressed hinges that allow falling debris to deflect off the hinge rather than break it upon impact. It has corner pockets to organize tools upright, along with mounting bosses in the lid for hanging items. To increase user versatility, the top handle is designed to fold into a cut groove for clamping small diameter material while cutting.
