New Toolbox

I haven't bought a new toolbox in quite a few years and my 2 old Craftsman boxes were getting overloaded. So, when I saw this box at HD, I jumped on it for $600. (I think the price is going up to $700.) This thing is built heavy duty and has great roller glides with "soft close", a nice wooden top, etc. I added a LED light under the shelf and a paper towel holder to the back, as well as a few pegs. At 450 pounds, i used my center post lift and two slings to lift it off my truck. No problem.

This thing rocks! Get one before they go up!

Looks pretty darn good for 600 bucks.

I noticed the depth is listed at 24 inches. That is unusual for a roll cab intended for the home user DIY type market.

Seems like many of the home use market boxes are 16 to 18 inches deep. A bit shallow for me.

That roll cab there is well thought out. With peg board, the lite added on. A nice setup

Put a power strip on the side for bench top work.Also a air hose fitting mounted to it would be Ideal for when you blow out those carburetors.

Maybe a swing away arm for a laptop ?

Just a few thoughts.
The big roller has a nice worktop. I bought one also (SnapOn of course) because I need the space on top (more of a real want). It is real nice to have for paperwork, carb work (Rare) ,Evap case teardowns etc.

Nice setup, do you have an update now that you have some time on it? Would you still recommend? I was looking at these vs the Kobalt and Milwaukee ones as an affordable option.

I would! It's been great. It's really nicely made and the glides work great, so far. I've got that top drawer loaded up really heavy and it's as smooth as glass. I'd buy it again.

I was looking at that box and also a milwaukee just like that. It was $599 a while back. Still plan on getting one of the two. Great box you got! Oh wait, you didn't pay $20,000 for a Snap-On box like us "pros"?

that's a great point you made. I have a HF 46" with side drawers added and top. That thing fell over cause it's so shallow. I have it screwed to the wall now. I like that depth of 24"
