Tool holder: Milwaukee Tool introduces the new 26-in. Jobsite Work Box. Built for extreme durability, the new storage solution can survive over 1,000 drops with a 50-lb load.

“Current storage boxes in this category do not have the durability that our users expect on the jobsite, often ending up with cracked corners or broken hinges after just one drop from the bed of a truck,” says Bobby Shaw, Director of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “We set out to overcome this reality, testing the box with an overloaded weight and dropping it repeatedly until we had a solution that could survive the everyday abuse of a jobsite for years to come.”

Features that add to the durability of this box include reinforced corners for impact resistance, recessed latches that are positioned for protection against jobsite abuse, and buttressed hinges that allow falling debris to deflect off the hinge rather than break it upon impact. In addition, the work box is made with a proprietary high impact resistant polymer, and is weather sealed to protect the user¹s tools from debris and contamination.

More than a tool box, the new storage solution also delivers innovative features that will increase productivity including corner pockets to securely organize tools upright in the corners of the work box, as well as mounting bosses in the lid that allow the user to hang items with a simple screw, for easy, organized storage.

For maximum user versatility, the 26-in. Work Box features a top handle design that folds into a cut groove for clamping small diameter material while cutting. The wide over molded handle allows the user to adjust their grip to hold the box at center of gravity, regardless of how the weight is distributed within the box. Convenient pass-through side handle grips on each side of the box provide greater carrying comfort and accessibility from all angles. The 26-in. Work Box also features generous space within the main compartment for long and bulky tools, and a removable tray for organizing smaller items.

The first in a growing line of storage solutions from Milwaukee, the new 26-in. Jobsite Work Box will be available at select retailers in June of 2014. Dedicated to delivering advanced solutions to increase productivity, Milwaukee’s Hand Tool category will continue to grow and offer innovative solutions for the trades.
