What's up everyone? Welcome back to The Durbin
Compound. If you haven't met me already, my name is Devin Durbin. I'm glad to see your smiling faces–
back here on the channel. So today we're going to nerd-out a little bit with some more Milwaukee stuff.
We're going to go over the Milwaukee PACKOUT system. So if you're looking at the PACKOUT system, or you're like me and you just like to watch videos on stuff that you bought, welcome to the
video. And what we're going to do is, I'm going to go over a couple of the different options. There are
many, many options as far as different organizers, different sizes, usually if you are going to
get into the PACKOUT system you'll buy the bottom rolling box.
I'll show you each
item that I have separately, and then we'll talk about other options. So there's their slim options
and their deeper organizer options. So I'll open up each box and show you exactly how I have it
organized. And you can get a good idea of, you know, what the boxes are all about. I searched a little
bit about PACKOUT reviews and what people have done already.
So I hope that this video brings
more value to it. If you find value in my video I'd appreciate a subscription. And as always, smash
that like button because I could use all the help I can get. All right, so let's get into the review. So what I think I'm going to
do is I'm going to change the camera angle and then let's talk about the bottom box first and the
different options on it. So let's do it! All right, so you really don't need to see my face in this or
need to see me to be able to explain this, but each of these PACKOUT systems, whatever you get, the small organizer, anything like that, it has some attachments here on the bottom
that slip into all of the other lids. So it has a little black button here that you literally just lift
it up and it pulls out about maybe an inch and then lifts up out of it. So you can literally put
these anywhere you want.
You can configure them however you like. All of the lids are like this. So when
they're new, they're kind of hard to operate. It might take two fingers. I've noticed that. These are the slim
PACKOUTs. So this is a slim five area organizer. It comes with these little red divider
pieces. The red divider pieces are awesome because you can kind of configure this however you want.
The only qualm I have with these organizers is that, I guess I'll say some cons while I'm talking, is these organizers you can only divide them in half.
So I'm not sure why they have four pieces on there, or four little tabs, basically they have it set up so that you should,
in essence, be able to do a divider like this and then another one like this. It looks like they don't have any that do the cross so you're down to two. You can only divide it into two sections. So
that's kind of weird how they do that. Another thing, you cannot move these like
this and close the lid. It is designed to have the big area in the middle and then the two
small on the sides. So, you know not necessarily a deal-breaker, but just kind of like, I wish there was a little bit more customizability or customized, Yeah! I wish you could customize
it more, (Is it proper grammar?) to, you know, do exactly what you want instead of being limited to
this and having only be able to organize it one way.
So that's that. That's the five compartment
slim organizer. And they're pretty nice. They keep everything inside their little compartment
and I like them a lot. So this is the rolling box. So if you wanted to do
the full system, this is where you would start. You would get the roiling box and you'll have your
wheels. These are eight inch wheels, I think. Yeah, they're almost nine inch wheels. I think they're
eight and a half, something like that. There's a couple tie-down points on these.
So it has a big,
strong D-ring and, you know, you can ratchet it to something. I've seen people when they have
the stack, go over with, you know, if they want to attach something on top, they'll go over with a
bungee cord and then you will strap it right here on the front. So they have multiple options
of strapping them down. These areas allow for a ratchet strap to go on it, if you're strapping
it into a truck. I like that a lot. This lid on the bottom is the only one that actually has
a click so it stays up. So I do like that. I like that you can take this around and you don't have
to constantly hold this up. So I hope you can see a decent amount down in here. so these don't come
with any organizers down in them.
So you kind of have to figure out what you want to do. How you
want to utilize this space. I've put shoe box in my other bottom section, so that you
can you have multiple things in it. I have my circular saw down in here, a couple hammers, all of
the stuff that I need for flooring. I have a chalk line, stuff like that, spacers. So, all of my flooring
stuff gets stuck in here and I have it organized like that. So let's move on to the second biggest, or second from the biggest thing. Okay, so this is the second biggest
organizer. This thing has a handle. Let me make sure… Okay, this one has a handle, nice carrying handle. It also has a handle here and it has little handles up underneath here for you to move it
around and manipulate it. So literally pulling this off of here, you just give it a finger here, and pull it out from its locking.
And then you're up and away. So this one comes with one organizer, I think I robbed one organizer from another one. And see the only thing I don't like about this is you
can't open this lid with the handle in place. So the handle goes up and down. You have to put the
handle down in order for you to put the lid up. Not really a deal breaker, just something, you know, that
you don't like, or that I don't like. One of these organizers comes in the bottom box. So if you're
getting a bottom box, you should get an organizer like this. I've robbed it from the bottom box to
put it up here to organize outlets, switches. This is obviously my electrical stuff. I robbed this from
my electrical stack. So, yeah, you get a little bit of room in here. You know, this
is definitely a pretty big container. You can put a lot of stuff in there. Hopefully you can see
that from where you're at. Maybe I'll try to tip it up a little bit.
So you have quite
a bit of space, at least another one of these in here that box. I'm not going to get technical with
it. I'm not going to get the tape measure out and tell you all the specs. I haven't been able
to [ __ ] get these in the store. This is, you know, I had to buy this online. I know Rural King
had some. And I got to see them there, but I had already bought mine. So, yeah, they have a nice ring for your padlock if you want to lock the sections, something like that. Let's go up to the top-size box here.
Take this apart. So we'll go over this organizer stack in a minute. All right, so
this is the top box. I wouldn't say this is the intermediate size. This is the smaller of the three. This one, they're selling this with an impact and, I think, it's an impact and a
drill/driver combo kit. It's pretty pricey. I would get the box. I think the box is like $60. So, naturally, I would get the box and then just get the drill and drivers separately. It's probably a deal, but I already have three sets of drills and drivers.
So, I like this one a lot because this one does come with a couple organizers. So it does allow you some ability to customize
it. So it has a three section little guy here. It has a three section guy here. And then it comes with
this little pencil tray, or whatever you want to call it. So you can have a little bit of fine,
you know, ability to put finer little stuff in there. So this thing holds a lot. I travel with
this the most. Most of the time, if I'm just doing a little job, I'll head out with this box and
I'll kind of just cram everything I need for the project in here. And then just shut it and
carry it. Now it has just the handle on the outside. There is a little handle on both sides like this.
So you can usually carry it whatever way you want to.
The locks are,
these clamps are really positive. They are really stout. They work really well. So that's
what I like about this is that you can just pull it off and go, whatever you need to. Snap it right
back into place. You can take the two and then they're connected, you know. So it definitely has
some, you definitely have a lot of options with it.
Man! I'm tongue-tied today! I don't know what the
deal is! It's Sunday. I'm worn out. All right, let's talk about the 11 compartment organizer. So,
hopefully I'm still in frame. Let me check this out. Okay, so I'm going to bring this back down to earth
and show you the 11 piece. Okay the 11 compartment slim organizer, they make both the 5 and the 11
compartment as a deep organizer as well. This is a slim one. So this is only about 3 inches high.
I've set this up for furnace service. So I have my clamps and my terminals, my little wire nuts, my
nut drivers. All the things that I need to service a furnace. So I can just pull this out and I
only need to take this into a customer's house or do whatever I need to. It really has everything
I need in here. I'm really starting to duplicate my tools so that I can just take one box and that
be it. I don't have to rob from other boxes to, you know, build a little kit to do something. So these
organizers come out and you can use utilize them. I'll show you why you would do that with my screw
We'll pull that up here in a second, but, yeah, nice little 11 compartment organizer. You can
divide these into smaller things, but just like I said on the previous organizer, you can
only divide it into two slots. I'm sure if you cut these little red divider pieces
you could do another one and just glue it in place or whatever. So, let's check out my screws.
I'll show you that. All right. So if you're not directly in front of them, and able to pull on them, straight out, they're kind of a pain in the butt to unclip. But these are fairly new so…
All right, so this is my screw organizer. So, this is one of those instances where this would be nice to take this over to where you need to be. And then
you can return it to it. You can dump your screws out and blow it out. Make sure it's clean. Put
your screws back in and then return it to the box. I really like that aspect of it.
So the organizers
that I was rocking before, they're basically just a plastic box with a bunch of different bins.
They get dirty. You leave it open, somebody runs a circular saw, blows all kinds of sawdust in
here. You're pissed off. You have to unload the whole thing, and then blow it out, clean it and put
it back. These modular things are really, really nice. I might be mis-speaking here, but the larger ones, not the thin organizers, but the large organizers, I'm pretty sure the bins come out and then you can clip them onto the top of your PACKOUT which is really awesome. So you can take one set out, or one set of screws out, and clip it on the top and, you know, and do it that way.
I think you can do that with the large organizers. I don't have any reason to have a large organizer. This holds a lot of stuff and this is just a slim. So, yeah, as far as durability, performance, I mean these things are stout. Every single thing about this is
100% well-made. It's well thought out. The plastic is all reinforced on the right areas. This stuff is going to last a lifetime. As long as you're halfway decent to your
stuff, this will last you a long time. The value is there. The value's there 100%. I think this top piece, or this 11 part slim organizer is like $40. These are $30. The smaller five compartment organizers
are $30 apiece. Nah, I think they're $20 apiece. I think I get them at Home Depot for $20 apiece. So that would mean that these are $30 apiece, these 11 compartment ones. So, you know, just depending on the price, where you go, these are awesome value.
definitely pick it up. If you're watching this video for just an overall view of what the PACKOUT's all about, go out and get you one. You're not going to be disappointed. You have a lot of versatility. You can customize the heck out of them. And they're just fun to mess with. And you also look cool doing it too. So you can have a really squared-away system that looks really nice and, you know, you go out on a job site or maybe it's just around the house, you've got this box to roll around with. So, you know, I was using Stanley FatMax before and I still do use that for my plumbing stuff. I'll eventually make a PACKOUT set for that. So, one last thing to note is with this bottom box.
If you have it unlatched and you put the PACKOUT on top of it, you cannot latch it back in. So maybe that's just a little design, where they could just cut that off a little bit so that if you did leave it undone, and you forgot, and you stack it all up, you don't have to go back and take it all apart to put that back on.
