Had for a few years now.
Bought the tough system years ago because I needed something that could handle dirt, mud, and gravel from jo sites. Husky tote bags wouldn't work, and I hated carying everything by hand. This big box holds plenty. I'm an electrician, so I keep alot of tools I only use occasionally. This is where they hybernate.

DS300 and DS400 winter tough tool boxes
Four years ago I was looking for some extreme tough tool boxes.
I decided to try the Dewalt tough system.
I wanted them for storage in my Polaris Ranger.
I live in the West Central mountains of Idaho, so I tossed in new rolls of toilet paper, sealed the boxes and threw threw them, (I mean threw them in the bed of my Ford F-250 crew cab 4x4 from November through late April.
They had anywhere from 3 to 4 feet of snow and ice on the, were tossed around and I even threw them out on the ground, intentionally a couple of times.
I wasn't expecting them to survive the weather, after -25 temperatures, heavy snow and rain, and a genrous amount of abuse.
Well, they did, the TP was found to be dry, and still in the wrappers.

Now, the boxes reside in my Polaris Ranger holding my off-road survival equipment, locked to the bed of the vehicle, and are still airtight, and although having a scrapes and blemishes, they work great.

I don't recommend a torture test like this for most people, but for me, it was needed as someday I might need to rely on those survival kits.

Thank you Dewalt-

My kids gave me the entire ToughSystem set for Christmas. Recently had to transport my boxes in the back of my truck during a rain storm. The seals/gaskets failed and most of my stuff in the boxes was ruined. I would not use these boxes in a real world jobsite where water, snow or rain will be an issue.

Jobsite proof storage solution!!!
Love these boxes! Great here in the Canadian winter. Can be left out and protects your tools from the elements. Great for locking up gear and moving is easy with the handles and the cart is great for multiple boxes.

Plenty of room inside!
I’m a cabler so the DS400 holds most of my tools. From my cable snake reel in the large storage area, to my multimeter on the removable tray insert. Plus the addition of dedicated storage holders for my screwdrivers and pliers along the rear inside of the case, makes finding these tools quick and easy.

Big & tough
I bought this about 6 months ago and its even better then I thought it would be. It’s wter proof so my tools stay dry when I have to drive with this in the bed of my truck. It’s also large enough to hold almost any tool. I will be buying a lot more of these for sure.

Needs a lot of improvement
Bought five of these and within 3 months, all of the side handles had broken off carrying 40 to 50 pounds of weight. There's too much flex in the side handles. Very poor design. The the top handles broke off of two of them within 6 months. The bottoms and sides broke out of three of them in the cold, Canadian winters. At $110 each, I'm not impressed and won't buy these. Replaced them with wooden tool boxes that I made.

Love these ToughSystem tool cases. I had all my power tools in boxes in the garage. Now I have them in these tool boxes.

I want to buy my buddy a case for his 20v reciprocating saw cor christmas, but it seems that they only sell them as a set with the saw. Will his sawzaw circular saw and drills fit in this box. Or even just the saws, he has another bag gor his drills.
Steve on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is ample room in this box. I current carry 20V: charger, impact, drill, multitool, 1/2 torque wrench, compact reciprocating saw, and LED area light. I still have room for an additional dewalt drill case, and the included tool tray. This fills it to the top, and it still shuts fine.
Ok which box do I need to fit a XR1/2"XR3/8" impact guns , XR1/2 drill ,XR 1/4 bit driver led spotlight 4 batts and a charger will it all fit in this one large box ?
