Top Customer Reviews
Now the down side, the box structure is poorly designed and manufactured. The shelf under the bottom drawer is bowed upwards so that the bottom drawer drags on it. That is mentioned in some of the other reviews and you can see it in the DeWalt product photos. But worse than that is the supporting feet are positioned so that the lower shelf bows up even more so into the bottom drawer, more so with heavier loads in the toolbox. I would expect this to get worse as the plastic deforms over time. Note that this is not a problem when stacking the drawer box on top of other TSTAK boxes because the bottom feet are not in play (load goes through the sidewalls).
One way out of the bottom box support problem might be to purchase the roller base. I fixed this by custom fitting 4 wooden feet to my bottom box (painting them black) so that they support the box at the sidewalls.
Of lesser concern is that with the drawers more heavily loaded I am not sure whether or not they will bow downward over time.
I easily would have given 5 stars if not for the bowed lower shelf and the poorly located supporting feet. I almost gave 3 stars.
Do you read these reviews? Come on, get your act together. You have a fantastic reputation built up over the years. Don’t mess it up. Unfortunately once the downward slide to incompetence starts, mediocrity seems to be inevitable. I have many of your excellent products and until now look to DeWalt first before other brands. The two primary mistakes on this product:
1) How long have you sourced out molded parts? Can’t you by now manage your designs and suppliers so that you can mold a bottom shelf that is not excessively distorted?
2) First rule of structural design is to mind your load path. Shame on you. Who signed off on the drawing? You have set your side walls as the load carrying members, the drawers beam the loads nicely and added toolboxes seem to be supported okay. Then when you get to the bottom feet you drastically offset the load reaction points with insufficient moment carrying capability from the shelf. Sure, you would have had to rework your interlocking/interface features but you need to start with something that works structurally.

People don't trust a glowing review of a product. So I am not going to give one. Lets stick with the facts this go around. The DeWalt Tstak system is comprised of a combination of 6 tool box / storage systems and a optional dolly cart. These storage systems are designed to attach to each other with a set of interlocking ears that attach top to bottom of each tool case.
The modularity of the system allows you to pick and choose the storage components that will best suite your needs. This allows you to have a custom tool chest that is stationary in your work space or to have tools grouped together by purpose so you can only pull the modules you need for a given day and take those with you but leave the others at the shop.
Tstack or Tough Case?:
Dewalt currently has two tool storage systems on the market. The Tough Case system and the Tstak system. The Tough case system is waterproof and air tight and designed so that if your boxes are exposed to weather that they will protect the tools and items inside the boxes from exposure. It is a much heavier and heavy duty system more aimed toward contractors and people who need to move many heavy tools across gravel, and up stairs and through unimproved spaces.
The Tstak system however IS NOT weather rated, Nor is it as heavy in construction. Nor is it going across gravel or up flights of stairs without some effort. To put this in perspective I use the Tstak system to store my precision tools, measures, gauges and my pull saws and soldering irons and I use the Tough Case system to store my wrenches, diagonal cutters, impact wrenches and other heavy duty tools.
This is not to say that the Tstak system is not equally well suited for its purpose. But keep in mind what each category of tool storage are designed for in your decision making and research process.
The Tstak IV:
The Tsak IV is shallow two drawer unit. From the factory each drawer is divided into 9 sub compartments by horizontal and vertical interlocking dividers. I use one of my drawers to hold my precision driver sets and precision picks and tools so I removed all of the horizontal slats so I could have 3 long vertical channels to keep the various pliers, strippers and forceps separated from the miniature drivers, separated from the precision picks. While the other drawer I left in tact to keep my fuses, separate from my Anderson connectors and miniature screw sets etc...
This unit only has a handle on the top, unlike some of the other units that have both top and side handles. This is ostensibly to keep you from tipping items out of the drawers. Each drawer has locking latch the most be released by pinching a latch under the drawer face. So it has a positive close and lock to keep the drawers from opening on their own.
The drawer slides are incredibly smooth and feel as though they are overrated for the amount of items that would be stored in such shallow drawers. I consider this a bonus. I prefer to have something that is over engineered to the point of being satisfactory but not stiff or hard to operate.
One final feature are the drawer labels. Each drawer has a clear plastic cover where you can place the drawer summary inside of it. This is very handy especially if you have multiple modules of the same type stacked on top of each other.
I bought into this modular system as a alternative to a bulky / heavy and hard to maneuver metal tool chest. I move my tools from home to shop and different sites. I do not have nor need a large truck or van so having something that is of a medium duty construction but still portable and keeps my tools organized is they key functionality. Luggage carting around a massive tiered tool tray and several independent cases for power tools got old very quickly.
So if you are a neat DIYer, engineer, technician or mechanic and you have the need to both keep your tools organized and potentially indoor portable. Then I would recommend you look into this system. Depending on how many modules you purchase it could be a bit of a investment, but one worth I consider worth its weight in convenience and cool factor.
The load distribution is a large problem especially with the 2 drawer unit when loaded with an appreciable weight in screw drivers, pliers and measuring devices ... total weight ... oh about 5-6 lb. The 'feet' are just to far in from the sidewalls and the bottom bends up. This particular unit is clearly designed to hold no more than small (plastic) parts when sitting on it's own feet. The problem is much less when the unit issue stacked on top of another as the feet are used to align the units and sit in recesses in the top of the unit below and the sides are supported. This is probably also evident in the single drawer unit (I don't own one ... yet) but is much less evident in the others as the bottom bending will not be as evident. Nevertheless I recommend dedicating one unit as your permanent 'bottom' and modifying it with feet below the side walls as recommended by Jack. My recommendation would be to get one of the big boxes for this purpose ....
