Speedbox

Where was the Speedbox when I was in? It’s highly water resistant, lockable, stackable and can be pulled around by its wheels. This thing is amazing.

Strength hurts. Speed kills. Speedbox represents the next step in the evolution of military mobilization. It’s a container system born out of frustration from using less durable, less thoughtful, and less integrated containers. At its core, Speedbox is a heavy-duty stackable, interlocking, wheeled, vented, drainable, buoyant, pull-able, rotationally molded container that maximizes the useable space on a 463-L pallet…it’s kind of like combat luggage. Gone are the days of spending up to 3 hours to build a pallet. When used to its full potential, Speedbox is a system that allows its users to palletize a 463-L pallet in less than ten minutes. If efficiency is important to you or your unit, then this container system is a game changer.

Speedbox eliminates the shortcomings of other containers used by the military:

Durability
This has always been an issue with plastic containers. Speedbox solved this by implementing advanced engineering in the geometrical design of the container, using structural foam on the interior surfaces, and devoting an ample amount of raw compound in each 50 lb. unit. This is the most durable container on the market.

Mobility
A typical fully-loaded container ready for deployment can easily weigh 250 lbs. requiring a four-man carry. Speedbox addressed this issue by incorporating two simple machines, the lever and the wheel. The lever on the Speedbox is the retracting handle made from two ¾ inch aluminum rods. These rods are attached to a 2 lb. aluminum locking block which is secured by angle iron that reinforces the stress points. The wheels are 10 inch off-road, heavy-duty, no-flat tires. They will never go flat because there’s no air in them. The combination of the lever and the wheel make it easy for a single person to quickly move heavy loads across uneven surfaces (like landing zones at FOBs).

Integrated
Most military oriented cases are not ideal for stacking given their smooth sides or irregular shapes. Unlike these traditional cases, Speedboxes fit together like Legos. The feet and wheels nest into each lid below. The side walls nest with adjacent Speedboxes, and the fronts and back interlock through the use of a built-in tether. When Speedbox is used as a system, it creates the most stable, easily loaded and transportable pallet solution to date.

    I hate to be the one to say it, but; 5 bucks says you’ll see these being dragged around the SHOT Show floor…..

    Death to the gorilla box consortium!

  3. Ed says:

    Looks like a quantum leap in improvement from being issued Stanley “work boxes” that are flimsy plastic with weak wheels.

  4. Each one is 50lbs unloaded? Wow.

    • AbnMedOps says:

      Yeah…9 x 3 = 27 per pallet, x50 lbs = 1,350 lbs of box alone per pallet. Might/might not be justified for a given unit’s mission and available lift, clearly needs rational analysis and decision making. The tail just keeps getting heavier…

    We sell various boxes like that at Home Depot where I work

    • Jon, OPT says:

      Have you ever built pallets with them each loaded with up to 200 lbs of gear? How many times?

      I’ve built 100’s of pallets using HD and Lowe’s boxes (Contico, Stanley, Tuffbin etc), they all crush, most have to be modified by adding a piece of plywood or equivalent on the top to prevent the top loaded items from crushing through them. The ones with wheels, that axle breaks within 2 or three loadouts.

      I’m not saying these are any better, I have no field experience with them, but I know for a fact the stuff sold at AAFES, HD, Lowe’s, and other such companies are shit.

      The best cases I ever used were Hardigg/Stormcase (now owned by Pelican).

      The fact that these are sized for a 463-L (standard Airforce pallet) is the best selling point. However I don’t see anything about whether it is sized for the full pallet, or a pallet with a leftover 6 inch walkway (required for load on a C-130, the most frequently used in theater airframe in many places).

      • ThatBlueFalcon says:

        From the picture above, it looks like they sized to fit the entirety of the 463L, without that walkway.

        • ThatBlueFalcon says:

          That being said, from their website:
          “A 3x3x4 Speedbox load-out (36 units) yields the maximum allowable workspace of one 463-L pallet within the hold of a C-5, C-17 or C-130 while delivering 496.8-cubic-feet of net-ready container space with a 10,800 lb. load capacity.”

          • D says:

            That doesn’t address the different requirements between the C-5/C-17 and the C-130 (and CH-47).

            I like these in theory. I think Hardigg had the only other box “system” that addressed the 463L.

            It’s not worth me buying a couple of I’m the only one with them. Better to have 100% Contico or 100% Stanley.

  6. Y.T. says:

    That doesn’t look like fun getting it out of a minivan or pickup fully loaded.

  7. Brian Harris says:

    If they made it in tan air softers would buy it and lug it out of their smart cars.

  8. Pete says:

    Hmm, These look interesting.

    How many fit in a Tri-Con or Quad-Con (Or ISU-90 for that matter)?

    That said, this is kind of a hard sell at $500 as Conticos can be had at the local SSSC/LCI/GSA stores for $70. At that price they are expendables. These might have to be a property book item – don’t nobody want no more s*%t on their property book.
