Seeing it in the toolbox-with-legs configuration, my initial thought was I'd like to have something like this out here on the farm, to keep my toolbox out of the mud when I'm working outdoors.

I do like the concept, though. I'd love to see a little competition in this space among toolbox manufacturers.
