Rated 3 out of 5Â by G60ING Great Space and Price but Several Damaged Boxes
I used to sell Craftsman tools years ago and had several of their boxes. When I moved a couple months ago I sold them thinking I would replace them. I've been looking at all brands and sizes and for garage needs. I decided on two 40" combos for my auxiliary storage boxes.
I couldn't figure out what the differences were between the two 40" combos HD has for what was $298 and now $348, after trying to buy my boxes yesterday I figured it out. One of the 40" combos has a flat top bottom box that uses a bracket to bolt the two boxes together. The other combo has a traditional top with a lip running the perimeter for the top box to sit in without sliding off. After three trips to the store I when through 3 of one design and 1 of the other and didn't find one combo that wasn't damaged in some way. Inspect your boxes at the store, getting home to then find the damage will only anger you ;)
The flat top boxes does have nice plastic caps on the ends of drawer pulls.
The flat top's top box is significantly lighter than then then combo with a lip on the bottom box. (thicker gauge of sheetmetal?)
The top box from from the flat top combo will NOT fit on the box with the lip.
I think the combo with the lip is the better version for my tastes, I hope to eventually get two damage free examples. Here are the numbers to guide you to the lip combo: Model # HTC404 HMT406 Internet # 204398420 Store SKU # 720161 Sales check item number: 873388006458
Unfortunately 4 out of 4 products that I inspected during my 3 visits to the HD store yesterday were damaged. The staff there was super helpful but at the end of the day I decided to take home a damaged product (because I had undamaged half of it at home) because I was tired of dealing with tool boxes for the day. I will order 2 of the design I want online to have shipped to the store. Hopefully between my current damaged combo and the two coming in I will have two undamaged boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dave This tool chest is as good as any if not better
I have had all kinds of tool chest I rate this one as good as Snap-On or Craftsman I size. I unpacked the chest and filled it with tools right away I like the way the doors glide even when they are full of tools.

This is not a daily use mechanic shop type of chest. This is the weekend warrior, shade-tree mechanic tool chest. It is sturdy, but the drawers can be somewhat temperamental. They do hold plenty of weight, and slide smoothly, but may not always close perfect flush. This is only noticeable when you try to lock it. For 300 bucks, there is not a better tool chest on the market period! I've shopped around for over 2 years, and I'm glad I went with this chest!! Also it appears this model is better packaged and shipped. Not a single dent or scratch on either the top or bottom chest. Love this tool chest!

Bought for 298 the other day which is a heck of a deal got it home and everything was together besides the casters which was simple to put on. seems very sturdy I use it commercially and have not had any problems. Most boxes cost 300 for just the top box and this was the whole set. So far im impressed with its durability and the ball bearing slides.
