Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a power strip on board?

One picture shows the battery charger cord exiting through a grommet. Is there an on-board power strip?
Asked by: diyer
I purchased this box less than two months ago. I did NOT have a power strip in the box. Possibly I received an old stock tool box if it is included on boxes now.

What is exact width of box without handle?

Asked by: Damitch
Dimensions given in the description are wrong and also are the packaging dimensions. The actual dimensions (on wheels) is 61"H x 35 3/4" W x 17.5"D (I measured mine)

Drawers: padded / soft-close?

I can not tell by the photos, but are the drawers padded with liner on the bottom? Also, do they auto-retract / soft-close? Any feedback on these is appreciated.
Asked by: mac
The drawers do include pads for each drawer. They are NOT soft close. The do have a bit of tension when closed to ensure they don't open unintentionally.

If picked up in store, how big are the boxes?

Just trying to determine the size of the boxes to see if they will fit in my SUV.
Asked by: ck40711
Two boxes, one for the top box and one for the bottom. About 260 pounds combined. They are pretty large and may not fit unless you have a full size SUV.

36 in. Metal Rolling and Top Storage Chest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Tool Storage from DeWalt The packing of this product showed some intelligent thinking. Well protected against damage and very easy to unpack/dispose. Product was in perfect condition (as it should be). This chest is high quality demonstrating attention to detail in design compared to other tool storage chests I've owned. What little assembly there is is well-documented, and easy to perform. Threaded inserts were prefect for handle and casters. I loved the attention paid to little things like the key design supporting angled operation. I also like that I didn't have to go out and buy drawer rubber mats - they come with the top and bottom units. Integrated electrical power bar in top compartment for battery/tool charging is a nice touch. Drawers operate smoothly. This isn't a cheap tool storage solution, but in my view, reasonable value. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if not damaged in shipping So, like my title says, this toolbox set is a great and functional set as long as you get one that has not been damaged in shipping. I purchased mine from my local home depot and because of reviews on this site, I made sure to look the box over very well for any signs of damage. None, however once I got the thing un-boxed, sure enough, the back right corner was dented pretty severely to the point it cocked the whole box slightly, enough to keep the bottom 2 drawers from clicking in when closed. I contacted Home Depot's customer support by email, received a call back within 24 hours with directions as to what my options are. I ended up just swapping mine with the floor model that was already assembled and I knew was not dented. I couldn't be happier now. I have had tons of people comment on it already and I have only owned it for 2 days. I would definitely recommend this box, just make sure you check it over for dents/damage from shipping/handling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly reccomend this tool box I was really worried about ordering this and spending this much money with out getting to touch it. Really wish Home Depot would at least put one in their store that you can actually touch, but with that being said, The reviews made me really nervous, all the reviews saying how they arrive damaged, how many people had to order to get a good one, and how long they took to come. I decided to have shipped to store in case it was damaged, I went and inspected it, I really have no idea how they can be damaged, this thing was packaged like Fort Knox, Short of dropping it off a fork lift, I can't imagine it getting damaged. Completely surrounded in Styrofoam in very heavy box. Love the quality of the drawers, just what I expected from Dewalt, Ordered the Dewalt 60 gal compressor later in the week, Can't wait to get it hooked up! Also the tool box was at the store in less than a week, In store pick up is easy and I find that all Depot employees are accommodating with loading and more than helpful every time I go to the store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Most rolling tool boxes have a quirk or two, this one has none of that. Very sturdy, great paint job, ergonomic and smooth from top to bottom. The two ports in the back for charging is a plus. There is one thing - no handle to lift the top compartment. If you are ordering this, you can probably easily install one yourself, but a simple handle would be nice. Call the customer service number and ask for a better deal, and you will most likely get it. My last Craftsman lasted 20 years, and was still going strong till I sold it during a move. This I suspect will outlast me with proper care. Excellent product, just like all Dewalt products. - Kris

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tool Box I picked this up yesterday from my local Home Depot. They had it in stock. Both boxes fit into the back of my son's Ford Ranger. Assembly was quick and straightforward. Despite some other people who had damaged ones, mine was perfect. All draws and locks work. All draws had liners in them. The only drawback is the tool chest 'sits' on top of the rollaway and does not fasten to it. I will easily remedy that in the near future by bolting them together myself. Overall I'm satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wasn't sure about the yellow... but this one is perfect! Assembly was easy but the boxes were huge! We had to have two cars (one SUV) to pick it up so either plan for it or spring for the delivery. At first I was nervous about the yellow, but I was sold on the great drawer size (perfect for organizing). Then we figured out that we could add a handle that would compliment it perfectly (see photo). Handle is totally needed to lift the cover but the raised auto decal did the trick! We didn't install the handle since the space we were putting it in was exactly 36 inches and took some wedging with the wheels aligned the other way, but it worked and fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, tough, roomy for power tools Probably one of the best bottom roller cabinets at this price point or especially at the HD special price. Got the bottom roller cabinet for storing power tools and accessories. Plans include adding a wood top for a strong flat work space plus a small vise. Deep bottom drawer opens 2/3rds for safety but does open full-extension when safety clips are disengaged or eliminated. Liners are included and the top mat protects the upper finish. Castor and handle installation took just 15 minutes. BB drawer slides glide smoothly, rated for 100/200 lb and the drawers are strong and rigid. The yellow color is polarizing but Dewalt fans will appreciate this tool box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product, poor shipping Got my first order last week and took it home to save $75 in shipping. I inspected the boxes before putting them in my SUV. The bottom section was perfect. The top had a dent in the top back corner and one lock latch was severely bent. I returned it and they ordered a new one. I opened the box before I accepted it in the store. That one came this week and it had a small dent in the same spot as the first. It was minor so I accepted it. I saw reviews of this type of issue but hoped for the best. Also, some reviews talked about no handle for the top lid and power strip. This one had both. The power strip has four outlets and two USB sockets. It is kind of dumb the way they ran the power cord inside the box. You have to stick it through the other hole to get it outside. The handle runs along the entire lid. overall this is a very well made box. I don't know who is to blame for the dents.
