Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Tool Storage Reviews

Storing and organizing tools well maximizes jobsite productivity. You can’t deny it. Our tool storage reviews focus on job site storage products including tool chests, tool bags, backpacks, and more. New products like the Klein Tradesman Pro Organizer backpack and Milwaukee Jobsite Backpack help tradesmen easily get tool to and from the work site. Other products like the Milwaukee 60-inch Mobile Workstation help you organize in the shop or garage. Tool Storage Reviews for the Shop or Jobsite For years, Pros brought tool bags and hard cases to the jobsite. At home, storage consisted of steel cabinets and other chests, drawers, and workbenches. Our recent tool storage reviews, however, are revealing a new generation of solutions. These products present better jobsite durability, better ergonomics, and higher value for professional tradesman or contractors. Also, nearly all new workbenches and tool chests use sturdier steel and better casters. Drawers open more smoothly with soft close features and/or improved bearings. Job site storage is certainly on the uptick.

At this year’s 2010 Global Leadership Tour, Don Briner, who works in Bosch’s Tool Organization and Storage department, gave us a nice preview of their upcoming adaptation of Sortimo’s L-Boxx tool storage system. The new products seem to compete directly with Festool’s Systainers (though Bosch was careful not to directly address this in their presentation). The L-Boxx obviously targets mobile work, but its simplification of the transport and storage of power tools, accessories and consumables makes it appealing to just about everyone.
