Milwaukee recently added to their storage line with the announcement of the Milwaukee Jobsite Organizer model 48-22-8030. I know what you’re thinking, isn’t there already a lot of organizers available on the market? You’re correct, but really what is one more and well if you know Milwaukee, they added a little twist to their organizer.
I have to say this is one of the most versatile organizers we have tried out. So what makes it versatile? First, as with most organizers, you can stack these one on top of another and also lock them into place. However while most organizers make you unlock and remove a top box in order to access the box below, that isn’t the case with this organizer. Even if you have these stacked three high, you can still open the bottom organizer and access anything inside, which is a great feature. Milwaukee also added a weather seal, which most other companies apparently forgot to add. This is great because we all know these organizers tend to be left outside, in the back of your truck or just sitting around. Now you don’t have to worry about moisture build up or other weather conditions affecting what’s inside. While the latches are durable, they aren’t like other boxes we have seen. Usually the durable latches tend to be a pain to open. With the Milwaukee, you can close and open them very easily and you also have the peace of mind that they will stay closed when not in use.
Opening up the box you will see there are 8 – 4×4″ bins and 2 – 4×8″ bins. What’s cool about these bins is you can mount them to a stationary surface using 2 screws, a pretty cool idea. The inside of the box does have one permanent divider in case you want to remove some bins and keep a couple hand tools in the organizer. But here is the key to this whole system, the lid system. When you close the lid, the top of the lid comes down below the tray tops to give it a nice seal. So what does that mean? It means you don’t have to worry about small pieces from one bin traveling into another bin during transportation, no matter how much they get bumped around. For me this is great if you have small washers or other pieces you just want to stay in place.
Milwaukee did a great job on the organizer and adds an additional organizer to their growing line of storage systems. The case seems tough and well designed.
