This Dewalt 226pc mechanics tool set, DWMT45226H, features custom storage trays that stack together neatly inside of a ToughSystem tool box. Dewalt launched this set in October 2019, following Craftsman’s VersaStack mechanics tool set. The set is regularly priced at $229, but occasionally goes on sale for seasonal promos. The latest deal price – thanks to Albert for the heads-up – is $129 for the Black Friday 2021 holiday shopping season. It is uncertain as to whether there will be any further savings for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Luckily, if you buy the set and this happens, Home Depot tends to be quick and easy to deal with when it comes to price adjustments.

The Dewalt tool set comes with 226 pieces, including 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ square drive ratchets and accessories, 6pt sockets, 8 combination wrenches, hex keys, screwdriver bits, and other odds and ends. You can find a full breakdown of the socket sizes on the product page.
The Dewalt ratchets have 72-tooth ratcheting mechanisms, and the full-polish sockets have knurled “beauty rings” to reduce slippage when spinning them by hand.
The ToughSystem tool box also has a removable top in case you need to bring additional tools with you.
Sale Price: $129
Stacking trays that fit inside a Dewalt ToughSystem tool box – included – seems like a much better idea than blow molded cases or other plastic boxes that don’t allow for as much versatility. You do need to take a moment to lift the trays out when you want to access the tools, but this also makes everything more secure when mobile.
