This was easy to assemble out of the box. Just put on the casters, and side bar, and roll into place. This tool box is sturdy, and the draws give you enough space for hand tools. The cabinet at the bottom gives good space for some power tools or boxes. My only complaint is that the solid wood top I got with my box was cracked almost all the way through when I got it, and it does not fasten directly to the top, its loose. Overall, I would recommend if you don't have too many large tools, and need

Great Mobile Workbench
The cabinet is very easy to assemble and great quality especially for the price. The bolts that secure the wheels protrude into the bottom cabinet area but I installed a 3/4" plywood base which covers the bolts and provides a flat storage surface. The only negative is that it doesn't come with drawer liners and the Husky liner that Home Depot sells is about 4.5" wider than the drawer which requires that you cut for both length and width which doesn't always result in a straight cut. Overall

Didn't know I needed it until I bought it.
I'm in the process of making my garage better suited for my needs and better organization so when I saw this workbench in the spring black Friday ad(who knew there was such a thing) I was there at 8am and brought it home. I paid $149.00 and it was worth it. Has 3 slide&glide drawers and a large capacity 2 door storage below. It has a decent weight to it and doesn't feel flimsy or cheap. It also has wheels so I can roll it around when necessary and is a great addition to my garage makeover(on a

I really like my 27 in. 5-Drawer Wide Tool Cabinet in Dark Green by Stanley. I have a ton of different tools collected over the years from dozens of different DIY projects, and this cabinet will definitely help organize many of them. In addition, I have 1,000's of screws, nails, and other pieces of hardware that need to find a home. The top drawers of this cabinet will fit that purpose wonderfully when sectioned off.
The steel seems to be a decent gauge and rolled over for added strength. The

I think that the price for all of this seems to be fair too. I'm not sure I would pay more for it, but at the price Home Depot is offering for, I think that it is a great buy.

Home Depot Exceptional Service
The lower cabinet was shipped to a store -- from Georgia to California via UPS. Upon opening it up, there were 3 or 4 dings when it had evidently been mishandled -- even though packaged seemingly very well.
But it is heavy at 125 pounds -- so it was likely dropped somewhere during 4 UPS transfers.
I asked for it to be shipped to a store an hour from my house, since I did not want to pay the $55 additional shipping to my house.
After putting it upstairs, filling with tools, and installing the

Ended up emailing HD anyway -- just to express my disappointment -- and not wanting to send it back or go through the hassle of loading it and not having the use of it for another 2 weeks.
HD responded within 30 minutes -- understood my reluctance to ship it back -- and ended up offering a matching top box at no extra charges, including shipping to my door within 7 days.
I had offered to pay for part of the additional box -- but they would not let me do that. They paid for everything -- it arrived in perfect condition.
This is not the box for a professional full time mechanic with heavy tools, using it 8 hours a day. But for a homeowner to organize the clutter of tools -- it is a quality product at a bargain price, with bearings -- and will last as long as I would ever need it.
We always hear stories of non-responsiveness of large companies -- or poor service.
However, Home Depot has changed my mind -- and made me a HD customer for life.

Great Tool Cabinet, excellent casters
Compared to similar tool cabinets at other outlets, this was an excellent value and free delivery to my local Home Depot. I have a small hatchback car but the toolbox fit just fine with my backseats folded down. It is heavy, almost two-hundred pounds, and the Home Depot customer service gladly sent out an associate to help me load it into the car.
The assembly was very simple and all hardware was included; the drawers were pre-installed and secured. Four casters and the side handle were the

On a personal level, I had been hesitant to purchase one of these tool cabinets, fearing that the casters, drawers or the lock would be shoddy. I was afraid that I would be stuck assembling dozens and dozens of small parts and spend hours getting sliding drawers to line up. I was most afraid that I would fill the drawers with my tools and one or more of the drawers would jam and/or fall off track.
If you have similar fears or hesitations, put them to rest and get yourself one of these Stanley Tool cabinets. It looks great, it works great and it even Feels like it has always been valuable part of my shop.
Over the years have I owned Snap-On and Matco tool boxes. I hated my Snap-On and sold my Matco to a friend. I didn't feel like making large payments on something that doesn't make me money. But now I needed a larger box and came across these. For the price I couldn't pass up this deal.
Pros: Cost is huge. It's almost impossible to find this size box for under $2000. Depth is also great. Most commercial sold boxes are only 18" deep. Overall size. It has lots of room for all sorts of
... read more tools.
Cons: The sheet metal that forms the drawers are a little thin, but as long as your not throwing tools at the sides no big deal. Height. I'm only 5'10" but it seems as though I am leaning over while working on the top. Wheels. Made of plastic and not high quality. Plus they are held on with self tapping screws. Buy some 5/16" nut and bolts and do it right.
Over all I am very happy with this box and I believe it will last a long time. I am an auto body tech and I us this box everyday. Lastly the detentes on the drawer slides. They are very strong and annoying. Before filling the box remove a couple drawers and flip the detentes on the back of the slides. Their white and look like claws. Just push them back so their out of the way. You can still lock the drawers and use as normal.

toolbox for weekend mechanic at home garage.
Box is good construction seemed a little hard to slide empty drawers but once loaded up with tools drawers move in and out very easily. Was iffy about using the self tapping screws for the casters so used 5/16" nuts and bolts. Very pleased with purchase looks like a box that will last decades with the powdercoat.

I bought a cheap toolbox a few years ago and regretted it - this box is great and from Home Depot didn't cost that much more. Highly recommended!
Box is great wish the rubber mat was thinker more durable, but love to hear the tool guys whine everytime they come in talk how nice the box is

This is a nice cabinet for the price Its not heavy duty, the whole cabinet feels and performs as a light duty version as compared to other suppliers with heavy duty casters.

I am an aircraft mechanic, and was outgrowing my previous tool box. In my line of work, your toolbox is your mobile workstation. This toolbox gave me everything I needed and more. I now have plenty of room to grow in regards to fitting more tools (4 empty drawers to be exact. 1 large, and 3 small), and have an insane amount of workspace on top. The main selling point for me was the side cabinet, which enables me to organize some of the chemicals I commonly use, as well as other large bulky items

Solid value with higher-end features
I own several high-end toolboxes, and for the price of the 36-inch Excel cart, I was pleasantly surprised with the construction, storage capacity, and look.
The casters are heavy duty and come complete with greasable Zerk fittings (a nice touch for longevity). Each drawer comes with a non-skid liner and the top of the cabinet also comes with a non-skid pad. Drawers slide smoothly, but even the larger ones do not have double slides. The handle is a little flimsy (plastic) but overall I am pleased

Meets my needs perfectly
As others have said, it would be nice to have 4 swivelling castors but I'm not really moving it around. Construction is a little flimsy - I'm sure if you pay more these things get a lot more solid - but the price is great and it can take a lot of tools. The mats they provide seemed to "outgas" for a long time after I'd received it.

OP in Studio City,CA
Got this to organize my tools and am very happy with it. Not the sturdiest but good enough for an occasional project. The metal is a little thin throughout. The ball bearing drawer slides and heavy duty wheels are legit. If you tend to be rough with your tools or have several heavy power tools, I recommend you spend whatever it costs to get a professional grade box.

Mobile work bench
This tool work bench was exactly what we needed to organize the garage and keep all our tools in one place. For years we kept tools on shelves or closets they were disorganized making it hard to find what we needed to get the job done. When we bought this tool bench we thought it might be too big but after going through everything we found it to be just right. Now we can find what we need for every job. We like the work bench top, it is a plus when you are working a job.

I don't write many reviews like others have said. I will keep this short. Iam a mechanic. There are many tool boxes where I work. I didn't expect more than a solid middle of the road box. I ordered both top and bottom. I was skeptical of the shape they would be in due to other reviewers talking of dents and such from shipping.

I would put this box next to any box, anywhere, and it will hold its own. Also, it is bigger than most other box sets. Casters are second to none.

This is the second Husky cabinet I purchased. I'm using these as moveable kitchen cabinets and storage. I purchased this one because the other one worked out well. Can't beat the price. My only complaint was that when I picked it up at the store it was a bit banged up. I had to fix the top so I could attach the optional wooden top. The other damage was on the back and since that's not visible I didn't bother returning.

Great tool box for the money
I bought 2 of these for my workshop to make it easy to move things around. They are sturdy, well built, and can hold quite a bit of stuff. The draws are smooth, in fact the more you have in them the smoother they operate. I had some left over 3/4 ply so I cut a couple of pieces for the tops to make additional little work tops. For the money these cannot be beat!
The only negative is the 2 big red (paper backed) labels they stick on the drawers. They are next to impossible to remove; Goop Off,

I bought the 27" 4 drawer tool cabinet, along with a top tool box for my son for Christmas. This is by far the best tool box for the money you can find.

Picky do it your selfer
Perfect for my needs. Bought 2 and stacked them. Had to modify them to ensure stability. Big drawers for my larger tools like saws and drills ect. Only negative thing is drawers aren't as easy to push in and out as I like. For the money I can't complain.
