great versatility
I bought this a week ago cuz I've been working on a big commercial site. I been able to move all my tools and gear around the site ten times faster as you know that means you get the job done faster. Its built really rugged to it can take a beating. Great product by dewalt. Thinking about also getting the tough radio soon.

Actually pretty tough
This does exactly what it advertises. It's tough, holds heavy tools and can take a beating. The only complaint I have is the plastic that holds the latch is pretty flimsy and I've knocked both off dragging it out of a truck and the plastic holding the right latch broke right off so now it just has the left latch. Other than that I'm happy with this line and have two other boxes.

Good Idea, Lousy Build Quality
Unit cracked on base corner (where it meets the lid) during first use with less than 30# of tools in it & no abuse...REALLY disappointing given cost and DeWalt brand aspirations to be a quality product. Appears to be a design defect...We'll see if Cst Svc solves this one.

Wheels fall off
I have bought this product and about a month in the wheels just popped off. The sad thing is I very seldom roll it. This normally just stay in my back seat. But now I have a useless box. Don’t buy this box.

Tough but awkward
I bought this system at Home Depot, but ended up taking most of it back. I ended up keeping the rolling cart and tool box. I agree with other reviewers that the fixed handle does not allow it to fit into a trunk or under a cargo cover of a truck bed. The metal latches work well so far, but the yellow plastic connectors are so tight I ended up breaking two of my finger nails trying to get them open again. I'd use a screw driver in the future. the large wheels did make the box easy to move but the handle release is awkward and not easy to use with one hand.

I also hoped that one of your parts boxes would snap into the top assembly, but the one you make is only 13" wide and does not work with this assembly. If the adjustable handle could be easily removed, that would help too. Add two clamps on the handles and two hooks near the base, and you could easily remove the handle and wheels and just as easily add them back to the box. I'd add a couple of holes to use bungee cords on to add other things on top too.

Poor quality
Within the first week, a side handle spring broke. Within the first month, the box itself cracked where the other side handle is attached. Now, under a year later, the telescopic handle broke, making it virtually useless. I'm a commercial finishing carpenter and need it tonight. Dewalt will not assist me, saying I have to mail it in and have it inspected for warranty purposes.
Thanks for nothing.
I'll continue to use my Dewalt tools, but I'll be getting a Milwaukee storage system to replace this junk; clearly at my expense.
Very disappointed!

Good, could be great.
Received the DS450, as well as a couple other tough system boxes for Christmas. They seem to be of decent quality, but after reading other reviews, I’m curious to see how long the latches hold up.
Only complaint so far is that the handle on the 450 wouldn’t fit under the bed cover on my truck.
Removal of the pins holding the handle to the lid, and radiusing the lower corners of the handle allows me to fold the handle down flat. I can now set the other boxes on the handle, and slide it all under the cover.

Latching system breaks
I got these boxes at Christmas 2018. I already have two latches broke off. The plastic where the latch attaches has broken on two of the three pieces. I still like the storage and ability to
control gear and give my guys tools as needed and the organizational aspects. But does not seem to warrant price.

Poor Design
Tough system tool box has very limited space and don't try to close the box with anything in it as if you put anything in the tray the handle storage for the box will not allow the box to be closed. Very frustrating tool box.
