Duramax 86601 Durabox 71 Gallon Outdoor Deck Box Review

Duramax 86601 Durabox is budget priced outdoor deck box with 71 gallon storage capacity.


Duramax 71-gallon deck box is made of UV-resistant polypropylene plastic resin. Panels are thin and assembled unit does feel fragile which is kinda to be expected since it’s rather inexpensive.

For some lacking sturdiness will be a deal-breaker, for others it won’t matter that much as long as the deck box can be used for storing items just fine. You can live with the lack of robustness of Duramax 71-gallon deck box with one exception – hinges are made of plastic and feel very fragile which makes you doubt if they can last.

It’s a cheap deck box. Some can live with it, others can’t.


Duramax 86601 Durabox seems to be watertight for the most part. It’s unlikely rain water will get inside. If bottom gets submerged it’s likely a different story though.


Duramax 86601 deck box has built-in handles. It can also be locked with a very small padlock (larger ones won’t fit) or hasp – it doesn’t come with either so if you want to lock it you will have to buy one of them separately. Since the deck box isn’t sturdy a padlock or hasp won’t do much if someone wants to steal your belongings – it wouldn’t be hard to break it apart but since it would cause some noise it might keep some thieves away.
