  • Rigid Pro Mobile Tool Storage

    Just picked up the Rigid Professional Mobile Tool Storage system. Any chance we will see a Component with Drawers? I would love to have something instead of my tool back pack.

    Looks exactly like the Dewalt system. I love mine.

      What dou you store in it?, I'm sort of thinking about either that or a service cart. I like the service cart because you can carry material on top but it's more bulky. I put away my gear when I'm working on home projects but it's a pain in the neck to drag everything out each time I work on something.So I was thinking those toolboxes but on a service
      cart rather than the dolly.

      I mainly install kitchens and custom millwork. I carry specific tools in my Dewalt system. Screwdrivers, piers, levels, handsaw, block plane, drill bits, cordless drill, cordless impact driver, assorted bits for both, squares and whatever else I think I need for my specific task. They come in handy because I can take a specific box in to the job and work from there or take the whole system.

        I like the idea of the wheels, a service cart can carry 300 lbs and can work as a table but sometimes it's just to much.

      That portable work bench is nice set up, great post Bob!

        Anyone else using these? I like the idea of the modular systems. I like the rack mount of the deWalt toughsystem for the van, and that they have such a variety of different units. No one else's seem to rack mount. Not sure if that feature is worth the price point; I can always build shelves. Who uses which and what is good and bad about them?
        This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

          Festool has all kinds of storage systems. Not cheap but some nice stuff.

                Here's another DIY tool storage/portable work station built around Festool Systainers but you could do the same with other storage boxes like the Bosch L-Boxx. Just need to size the openings to match your favorite system.

                  Seems like the way the Ridgid system is designed, this would be tough to adapt.

                If you are looking for carts or a dolly system, you could build something like Eric built here for his Systainers. Again, just change dimensions to suit your storage box system.

                    Hi Barramus - the RIDGID storage system comes with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty; no registration is required.

                  Good to know, thanks for that info RIDGIDadmin. I think someone earlier asked about a drawer unit, are there any plans to add something like that to the lineup?

                    Why doesn’t Ridgid come out with more options, or at least support the pro tool system? I don’t see much in the media about it and they don’t even answer questions on their website when posted. They really need to support it for it to succeed.

                    they could at least have a forum section for it here.

                      It would be nice if they made a vacuum that you could mate up with the pieces of the RIDGID storage system. Then you could stack your boxes on top of the vac and use it to wheel them about.
