Weather Guard Pack Rat Load Ratings 

All of the Weather Guard Pack Rat drawer units have a drawer capacity of 425 pounds and a top load capacity of 750 pounds. This large drawer capacity allows you to store all of your heavy tools and equipment with no worry of damaging the unit. Even with the drawer completely loaded down, the drawer still pulls out and closes effortlessly due to the heavy duty roller system. The 750 pound top capacity allows you to stack a pallet of material on top of the unit just as you would normally put in the bed of your truck. The 750 pound top capacity also allows for the mounting of equipment such as air compressors, welders, and generators.

Weather Guard Pack Rat Organization

Weather Guard Pack Rat units can be used individually or stacked on top of each other for maximizing storage capabilities. Each unit is fully customizable using the included dividers that can be moved around to allow you to neatly organize all of your tools and equipment. For example the 338-5 Pack Rat unit comes with 24 individual dividers. This allows you to make room for larger tools or gear and also make smaller compartments for smaller items that you want to keep neatly organized.
