The Dewalt DWST08061-1 ToughSystem 2.0 18V Task Box & Light from ITS is really something else.
In a nutshell (or should that be in a ToughSystem) the Dewalt DWST0806-1 is a storage case and versatile site lighting set up all in one.
In terms of storage, this open tote follows in the footsteps of other recent Dewalt ToughSystem 2.0’half width’ cases. Ideal for carrying a huge range of power tools, hand tools and much more, the tote includes ToughSystem connectivity on the base side, so that you can easily connect to others within the range thanks to the Auto-Latch Side Staking latches.
The lid of the case is where it gets clever. Working together with the case or independently, two bright LED light panels brings illumination to any work area. Whether you need it for precision work, or just to brighten up a dark workspace, the LED work lights deliver up to 4000lumens and can be turned up to 360° to suit your needs.
Powered by 18V XR batteries, the light can work from the floor, on top of a ToughSystem box tower, or from a lighting tripod. If there is the capacity, you can even hang it from above. Each light can be adjusted over 7 different illumination modes while a power display on the front lets you know how much battery you have left.
