If you haven't discovered VersaStack tool storage, you should take a look. I am working several job sites and VersaStack helps me organize and transport my tools. But it only meets about 70% of my needs. Here are a few suggestions to make this a real solution:
1. A rolling base is essential (See Milwaukee Packout Dolly). It is not practical to depend on the wheeled base storage box for in-shop storage/movement.
2. Sell the TRADESTACK to VersaStack adapater separately. It is difficult to understand why Craftsman would build two completely incompatible lines of tools storage, but if you insist, make it easier for your customers to mix/match.
3. Give some though about how these are used and stored. I want to be able to easily only pull the suitcases needed for a job without having to unstack and restack all of the others (I have about 20 suitcase storages boxes). A wheeled rack where the suitcase and drawer units can slide in/out would be enormously useful. Since you don't offer one, I am welding my own.
4. Make a grip on the side of the suitcase and drawer units so that they can be grabbed from other than the top/front. Don't need a full handle - just a finger grip.
5. Make a 24" suitcase for longer tools such as recip. saw.
6. Make a thin base that the bottom unit can lock onto. I would like to screw a base to the bed of my truck and lock the VersaStack system into that base.
7. Lastly, make a milk-crate that can be stacked / locked with the other components. Thousands of uses for an interlocking milk-crate.
Craftsman: here you go. Took Harbor Freight no time to respond to customer demand:
I'm baffled by both your lack of response and desire to innovate.0
