Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OverlandParkKS Great tool chest and cabinet, amazing price!
I bought this Husky took chest and cabinet with 10 super smooth sliding drawers from my local Home Depot for a great price ($298). It was brought out to my truck in two boxes and they helped me load it since it is very heavy. When I got it home I inspected it for damage after removing from the packaging and I am happy to report it was in mint condition. It took me about 30 minutes to get it all set up and ready to load with tools. Like previous reviewers have stated you might want to think about getting some drawer liners to put in the cabinet. I had plenty of room to put in my basic tools and there was even space to put in some of my power tools. The cabinet is very sturdy, looks great, and is the best deal around for a DIYer or weekend mechanic. Now I am off to buy more tools with the money I saved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sdgiant Perfect for a DYI Garage
Very happy with the layout of this unit. Just over 5 ft high, with an opening top that really maximizes your vertical space in a small garage, About the entire unit is drawer space, more small drawers (5) than medium (4) and large 10in (1), so there is a good variety... but if you are looking for power tool storage, it might not be a perfect fit. Otherwise it is a great setup for the home garage.
About the only issue I had was the locks seem inconsistent. A couple of the top drawers would lock, even with the lockset unlocked. Opening and closing the top resets the locks, so it's not a big deal. Just thought I'd mention it. If you need to be locking and unlocking the drawers a lot, it could be inconvenient.
I did have mine shipped. While that is an expensive option, I did notice complaints about the stock in some stores. Mine arrived with a plywood crate surrounding the typical cardboard box with Styrofoam edges. Very solid packaging, and not a scratch or dent in the entire unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by toolman1 Great Box for the money
I researched tool chest after tool chest from Lowes, Harbor Freight, Craigslist, Sears and Home Depot and for the money I am very happy with this chest that I bought from Home Depot. The drawers are filled with tools and they still slide nice. It was very easy to assemble. I took the advice of the other reviews and inspected it before I left the store (mine didnt have any dents or issues). I assembled it within 20 minutes, lined the drawers and filled it up. It took me longer to cut up the cardboard for my recycle bin and put all the styrofoam in the garbage pail than it did to put it together. Very satisfied with my purchase, cant find a better box for 350 dollars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weez great box for the price!!! i love it:)
well i been working hard for the last 2yrs at the body shop i work for. I was time to treat myself to a new tool box. i spent weeks doing reasearch and finding the best box in my price range i was getting ready to go to HF when i came across this box. first off, lets keep it real, your are not going to get a 7000 dollar box for 300. so to all you guys complaining about this box, what do you expect for 300. this box is great for what i need it to do (sit there, look pretty and hold my tools) setup is easy casters are good drawers are ok. my only issue was the locks. got to push on the drawers for all them to lock. thats it. Ooh before you install the drawers, add additional white grease on the ball barings and tracks for your drawers to close smoother. not neccessary, buy our A- tech said company never puts enough grease on the barings. once my box was all together and filled, all the body guys in my shop with the big money tool boxes said it looks great and was a good deal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Feistc Great value, but needed improvements
Overall: This product is good quality for the money but needed small modifications to make it perfect.
The good: The price is like half the cost of other major brands. The drawers open easily and I like how the top box is the same depth as the bottom.
The bad: My box came with two different locks. I called about getting a new lock so I could have a matching set and they said it'd be $35 for one lock. So I went to a local locksmith and bought two new lock sets that were keyed the same for $16. Also, the bottom drawers did not lock easily due to the drawer hooks not being manufactured consistently. So I had to shave off part of the metal inside the hook for most of the drawers. After these two changes, I don't have anything negative to say.
A note if you buy: The keys for the bottom chest were tied up to the locking mechanism inside. I didn't find them until I went to replace the lock and removed the top couple drawers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScottieDog Good deal if it wasn't banged up (twice)
Purchased this online and picked up at the store. Two good sized boxes, filled the back of my Grand Cherokee. After lugging it into my basement and opened up, found one of the corners on the bottom cabinet was smashed in pretty good. Called the store and they said I didn't have to bring both boxes back since the smaller chest was fine.
They had one other one in stock, which I asked them to open in the store to inspect and, wouldn't you know it, the back of it was dented on both sides, although not too bad (see photos). I took that one since it was in the back and they offered 16% off. You may want to do the same and open the box before leaving the store.
Got it home again and proceeded to install the castors. Two of the screw holes were stripped but I could access the other side so I bought nuts to secure the screws to. Had to remove the bottom drawer to get them in though and had some difficulty getting it back in by myself. I wouldn't recommend removing them for fun.
The key for the top and bottom don't match now since I only replaced the bottom portion, I don't know if they are normally paired. Didn't think about that at the time.
All that being said, once it was up and running it's a pretty decent set. It's going to sit in my basement and hold my tools and it will do a fine job with that. The ball bearings are smooth. For the top chest, the top lid has to be open to access the drawers, which may bother some folks. This may be true for all types of these though, I couldn't tell ya.I show a picture of it with a 48" level so you can see it's about 5' on the castors. Easy to move around on smooth surface and I can lock the two castors by the handle, keeping it in place. Definitely a keeper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ecirbob Great Price reasonable quality
First one I brought home was badly dented and I had to lug it back to HD. Steve at the store was fantastic. They found another one but that one was also dented. Finally took the floor model with 10% off. Set it up lined the draws with liner from harbor freight (HD does not sell liners) and my tools have a nice new home. It is by far the best deal I found on a tool cabinet this size. The metal is very thin but as long as you plan to keep it stationalry and not commercial use it is the best vaue for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan offers ample room to store a wide range of tools
The tool chest shipped in two sealed plywood crates. Out of the box, every inch of the chest was in absolutely mint condition with no scratches or dents.
I had to assemble four casters and a side handle by laying it flat on its back which I thought would be a 5 minute task. However, it took me about 20 minutes just to install casters. The rings inside the holes where bolts were to be screwed in had imperfection. I had to struggle through it to screw the bolts in. Wrench provided with the package was not sturdy at all to finish the assembly. I used my own wrench to install regular caster which had some room on the side but swivel casters had no side room because of brakes which made it really hard to screw the bolts in.
Top chest sits on top of rolling cabinet and is attached with 4 sturdy brackets.
Once assembled, I tested the top and bottom locks and found that the top chest drawers do not open even though I had not locked it yet. I knew I had followed the manual but no matter what I did, it would not open any of the top drawers. Finally I gave up and opened the top lid to put the keys back in. For the last time I gave it another try and then it opened just fine. That’s when I realized that the top drawers are un-locked the moment I open the top lid. Manual says that you just turn the keys toward left and that locks the chest. I called the Manufacturer to confirm if closing the lid is the way to lock the top drawers, they confirmed it. The top lock is only to lock the lid itself. Also make sure that drawers are PUSHED all the way in before locking the chest or locking mechanism will not work.
All 10 drawers are 35 ½” wide and 15 ½” in depth. Top chest’s top 3 drawers are 2” high and 4th is 2 ½”. Bottom cabinet’s top 2 drawers are 2” high, 3rd is 2 ½”, 4th is 3 ½”, 5th is 4” and the bottom drawer is 8” high.
I am pleased with overall construction of the chest. Finish is high-end and it certainly offers ample room to store a wide range of tools. I bought commercial grade liner for the drawers’ base to keep them scratch free. My tools found a new home, they are happy and so am I. Considering what it costs and the storage it provides, I am all for it.
