The next generation of tool storage is here with the all-new TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 from DEWALT. The original ToughSystem 1.0 launched in 2011 and became the first storage eco-system made for the job site. The new system takes the work storage industry to a new level with portability, durability, and interlocking modular stacking capabilities.
DEWALT TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 Improvements
The new TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 has been completely re-engineered to give the end-user the most of what can be expected from a modular and mobile storage system. Designed for small to large-sized contractors, TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 brings rugged-terrain portability* to the job site for contractors working in the harshest environments. *Compared to the DWST08250 design proven through passed conveyor testing.
Best TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 Upgrades
Large two-piece front metal wire latches and stronger and wider handles that can be easily opened or carried while wearing gloves.
The patented AutoLock side latches are one of the biggest improvements which easily click the case onto place without having to open or lock it in by hand, unlike the previous 1.0 storage system.
The IP65 in mold integrated seal provides a secure fit in helping to keep out the harshest elements.
Also, the AutoLock allows a one-touch release for easy removal from just one side.
Building onto those new features they have also added a removable back handle from the rolling toolbox (DWST08450) which now allows the organizer to fit under most full-size pickup truck covers.
Large 8” durable wheels make job site portability easy and the reinforced metal padlock eye brings extra security to the job site.
DEWALT TSTAK 2.0 Vs. TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0
The DEWALT TSTAK 2.0 and TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 storage systems were released around the same time and each has its own pros and cons. They both are compatible with previous iterations within the system, are lockable for added security, and provide an organized system to move your tools around. The TSTAK system is a less expensive option but that savings in cost cuts out or downgrades some of the features found in the higher prices TOUGHSYSTEM. The TOUGHSYSTEM 2.0 features a higher IP rating, thicker body, and larger load capacity. Ultimately what it boils down to is which system best fits the needs of your operation.

What is the yellow button on the lower cross bar to the rolling tool box?
The yellow button on the crossbar of the rolling tool box handle is a release lever that is pressed to lower and raise the handle. It can also be used to remove the handle entirely after two small red tabs at the bottom of each side of the handle are turned 90 degrees. Removing the handle allows the rolling tool box to fit under most truck bed covers.
What is the yellow clip on the top, middle of the different boxes?
The yellow flip-up clip on the top of the boxes allows you to lock in 1/2 width boxes and bags, such as the Deep Compact Organizer and the Compact Tool Bag. This allows for two organizers or a combination of an organizer and tool bag to be stored on your stack.
