Milwaukee PACKOUT Crate 48-22-8440

Milwaukee has just announced a new addition to their modular Packout tool box storage system with a new Packout crate. The crate is basically an open top tool box with slots on the top sides for handle grips. The open top design means that has the convenience to easily reach in to gather contents without a lid to get in the way. Unlike most crates, the walls are solid and you cannot see the contents when viewed from the side. It will be available in November 2019 for $39.99. Check out the full details below in the Full Press release.

Seems like r&d ran out of creative juices on this one, or something. Low weight capacity, weirdly smaller than the rest of packout, much smaller than ToughSystem and rigid totes, over twice the price of the rigid tote, and zero of the features that make the ToughSystem tote so awesome like the top handle and lowered lip that lets you access contents while underneath another box.
