    Not a problem. I have a ton of stuff in mine.
    M18: hammer drill, impact, sawzall, hole hawg, stick light.
    M12: PVC shear, rover light, radio, stick light.
    4 bit boxes, hammer, wonder bar, catspaw, 6 hole saws, blades, bits.
    That's just in the large rolling box.

    Like many things, it 'comes' in one box. Whether it fits all back into it after you take stuff out, or try to put some extra stuff in is a whole other question.

    To me, after many years, I don't get too crazy with tools. When I was young, especially doing construction, there were no big box stores (well Sears), and you had to go to specialty stores to get good quality power tools & hand tools. I still have many of them-durable, built to last. Most now, even the power tools (especially cordless) are almost throw-aways. New battery costs is usually a little more than half way to a new cordless gun.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    I've converted my whole truck over to Packout.

    It's not the best use of space, the cases take alot of space compared to what they hold compared to some other storage solutions. But they are sturdy. Kind of makes it easy to be ripped off, but if I was in a dodgy area it would be easy to chain down.

    That said, it's worth it. Being able to load up for a job and then roll in really saves the back.

    All my power/battery tools is spread across a couple of the large boxes. Test gear in another. One small box setup for commissioning. A box for this, a box for that...

    One complete kit would hold what you have listed. Maybe use the small one for drill bits, cutting wheels etc. ?

    I keep one wheeled box empty. This one I use to load up with what I need for a given job. This is my favourite box.

    Pics for reference.

    Here's a quick couple of pics. My trucks in the shop so packout is really convenient working out of my personal truck.

    I should note that these are stout. I lost the big rolling box and the 18V press tool on the freeway at about 30 or so. Everything was fine and recovered(obviously) the only issue was a slightly bent wheel and minor road rash.

    I used to have a version of those boxes, they basically took up the entire area at the front bulkhead, and you had to take them apart every time you needed something out of the bottom box. I hated that feature, and got rid of all but 2. one sits under a shelf now filled with rigging equipment, the other sits on top of a shelf filled with sheet metal tools. I rarely use them, but when I do, having all that stuff in one box is great.


    also, depending on the size of the box, and what you put in them, it can be just a big pile of crap in a bucket, if you don't organize the contents.....may as well have everything thrown in a bucket in that case.
