At Warrior Expo West, Speedbox launched their new Endurance-40. This was designed to fit both the 463L pallet and ISU90, which many units use. In addition to the size change, Speedbox also improved the ways individual Endurance-40 interlock with one another, making loads more stable on a pallet. They’ve also lengthened the pull bar so the Endurance-40 doesn’t hit your heels while you pull it. It featured a watertight seal with improved latches at either side of the lid with a load capacity of 250 pounds.
