Dollar for dollar, absolutely. The 5 series Matco was created to compete with Snap-on's top-of-the-line box, and it beats it on every level, at a lower price. The 6 series Matco has no competitor- there's nothing out there to compare it to. It's also expensive. The 4 series Matco is the entry level box, but has most of the features of the more expensive ones, just not all the options and flash. You can get online and design a 6 series to fit your tools and needs- drawer size, color, casters, trim, etc. etc. The options are endless.

Those flashy truck-on-toolboxes pics are kinda cool, and Matco's done them too, but if you figure an empty tandem weighs around 24,000, sitting on 6 tool boxes, that's 4000 lbs per box. They damn well better hold that much, for what they cost.
