Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yahweh Not for professionals perfect for at home
I bought this box simply for my tool organization at home in my garage where I do all my work. It has a lot of room important to note the top draw is a little deeper than the smaller draws so you can put bulkier things. Also the two bottoms are very deep so you can store bulky power tools. The wheels are ok quality could have been better but did not disappoint my expectations. Assembly witch is only required for the casters is a real pain took me longer than I thought. Buy the rubber mats worlds of a difference I got mine from harbor freight for 5 bucks a roll and it works fine all in all I would recommend for the diy AT HOME guy if you need this in the work place I would look elsewhere and apply the old rule of you get what you pay for. When the chest is locked it feels like if I wanted I could force it open witch won't prevent theft but at home ...... Anyone trying to get in unnoticed won't fly witch is perfect for again at home use. Also must note very important I would go to the store and inspect the unit before bringing it home to check for shipping damage witch is quite common on products like this Wouldn't want to shlep this thing back

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by d54l51 Great tool storage for my shop
Reading the reviews on this work bench I was skeptical because of packing issues . Husky must have fixed this problem because it was packed so well , it could have been air dropped out of a cargo plane . No dents or scratches or missing parts . Minor assembly of the casters and handle , all very easy to do. The bench rolls easy and has breaks on two casters . The drawers are roomy and open and close very well with good roller bearings . I did add Husky drawer rubber liners . Keeps all my tools in place and protects the paint job.

The workbench was easy to put together, only requiring four wheels and a handle. I love how I can organize all my tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Letsgobuildsomehing Really good box
I have had these about a month now and I mounted them in a work trailer. The trailer is single axle and very bouncy. I have saws drills drill bits and everything in between in these boxes. There is no sag in any of the drawers they have never popped out of locked position and they are still smooth as silk. You will not find a better box for this price. Hope this helps!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maint1 Terrible - Not worth the money.
I have a Husky tool box similar to this one (earlier model I guess) but it is stainless & has a door on one side. I use it for work & some of the other guys at work have this one. They are both rusting (even the so called stainless one) & buckling under the weight of the tools. We work in industrial maintenance and wheeled tool boxes are what we need but these do not hold up. I've only had mine for 5 or 6 months and it is worn out. It's easily broken into also. Had some tools stolen and had to put hasp locks on it. Still pretty rinky dink. The other guys have had to pop rivet L & T brackets on theirs to brace them around the corners & stuff. I would not recommend these for any heavy duty work purposes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hangman34 Exceeded my expectations
I just bought an older house and am doing my living areas and kitchen in a very industrial/factory type concept. Exposed red brick, concrete floors, commercial lighting, ne paint etc. Before I can get to all that I needed some additional storage. This unit was on sale and stocked in the store. It made the perfect rolling island for the kitchen and a fraction of the cost of actual islands. It practically holds half the kitchen in it.
The last Husky tool chest I bought (about 12 years ago, still have it) was in a million pieces and took a few hours to put together. This came out of the box ready to go except for the wheels and handle. That made my day.
This isn't a chest to beat on everyday. There are other companies that make tool chests for that. Just take the price of this box and literally multiply by 10. This will dent easy and my older Husky box seems to have a heavier gauge steel. I can see this chest getting the job done for an average weekend warrior or someone just starting to get there hands greasy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToolLady Dented But otherwise Fine
Was Very Happy When My Husband Bought this for me as I had been needing one for a long time to put all My tools in.
I wasn't happy though when we took it out of Box ( Which By the way wasn't damaged) But found a huge dent on left side right in front where you can see it. Wouldn't of minded so much if it was in the back where you can't see
. I called store where I purchased it, and The associate told me to take pics of damage and bring them in and they would discount us. That was nice of them. The other thing was that the key to drawer wasn't in with the Tool cart. Does anyone know where they would put it? Wasn't packaged up with any of the screws.. Other than all this, and the fact I got it on sale for a lot less than original cost, I love it so far. I will let you all know more later when I actually get to put my tools in it. :0)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TrailRunner Examine carefully before leaving store!!!
I purchased this tool chest yesterday at my local HD store. After reading other reviews, I looked carefully at the packaging, and picked out one that had no indications of any damage. At the checkout, my paranoia got the better of me and I asked the clerk to open the packaging up so I could examine the box for damage. She cut the packing straps and I quickly gave the box a quick once over... TOO QUICK!!! I missed a corner that had been hit, and judging from the undamaged packing carton, I would say this happened in the factory, not in transit. I discovered it (actually my wife did) when we completely unboxed it at home. I contemplated returning it, but the drawers all work fine, and it is just a home storage box. Packing up and returning something this heavy and awkward for what amounts to cosmetic damage is not worth my time. I don't blame HD for this, as I had the opportunity to see the damage at the store and missed it. It is disappointing that Husky's quality control let the box through with damage that should have been clearly evident to an inspector.
So about the chest itself. I have owned both Snap On and MAC chests. No comparison obviously, but for a homeowner with a decent collection of tools this chest isn't bad. Drawers slide ok, casters aren't bad, and the box looks pretty good, aside from the dented corner. Constructed of pretty thin metal, so don't bump it into something and expect it to emerge unscathed. I have a pretty extensive tool collection, so drawers are loaded fairly heavy with no sign of sagging/binding. Chest rolls smoothly on the casters.
Bottom line, if you're a pro you'd be better served spending your dollars on a higher quality chest. For a homeowner who has the usual homeowner odds and ends, this box is an amazing value, in my humble opinion. Just be sure to open it up at the store and look over THOROUGHLY before lugging it home.
