Rated 5 out of 5 by Husky 52 inch 18 drawer tool box! So after getting the run around from Lowes for the last week about replacing my stainless steel Kobalt 42 inch 11 drawer tool box which is over $600 I decided to check out Home Depots tool boxes. I was skeptical about the box because I purchased 3 kobalt boxes now and all 3 have failed. Ball bearings fell out the drawer tracks, the tracks themselves came off of the box and the drawers just caved in. Long story short Kobalt 3 year hassle free warranty is anything but hassle free. I'm done doing business with Lowes, this box is awesome way better quality I am impressed. Seriously, this box is the best box you will ever find for $599!! September 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value! After being a professional mechanic for over 40 years and building hot rods in my home garage. I decided that I would treat myself to one more new tool box as my old box was just too small to hold all of my tools. I did plenty of research and looked at all of the tool stores and the overpriced truck tool sales people. I looked at the Husky box and the quality and storage space for the money and it just made sense to buy the Husky 52" tool chest and cabinet set. After all what do tool boxes do ? They hold tools. You can buy a tool truck box for $ 8,000 or buy the Husky for what I paid with a discount coupon. The expensive box will not make you a better mechanic. The Husky box allows you to have the same storage and buy a lot of tools!! This tool box will last my lifetime and then some. Very happy with my purchase. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE BEST TOOL CHEST $ CAN BUY I did an extensive search recently which entailed visits to all major stores and websites. I read hundreds of reviews and after all that research, this is the toolbox I purchased and don't regret it one bit. You will not find a new tool box with these features and space for this price anywhere. if your looking for the most for your money, don't look any further. No, I don't work for HomeDepot either. I purchased this for $598 and had to drive an hour to the only store that had one left in stock. Here are the Pros N Cons Pros: 6 (not 4) Super duty castors, even loaded with tools it rolls like its on hot butter, smooth ball bearing drawers, lift n release drawer handle/latch, nice balance of drawer sizes, $100 worth of precut drawer liners, heavy duty build and construction, huge top cabinet space for most anything, it has a precut hole in the top compartment to run a power strip or electric into the chest and an unbelievable price. I honestly can't see how they are able to sell this much metal and build quality for that much money. I am SUPER impressed. Cons: There is only one thing that I wish this box had of which I was aware of before I purchased because I read where another reviewer expressed the same feeling, but the large top compartment should have had a handle. If your trying to open it with greasy hands it can be a chore. I went on *bay and found an arched stainless steel handle like those on a grill, stove or refrigerator and plan to put that on it. Even with this one con, its an awesome deal on a tool chest. Advice: grease the drawer slides before installing the drawers January 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Never again I recently when to purchase this box after a co worker ordered one which i will go ahead and say he didnt recieve yet at the time. Well ordered this husky box in,which i thoughg was an amazing deal. Well lets just say i was completely wrong. I wanted to be a lil cheaper because of the holidaya coming up i wanted to save money, figuring id drive an hour to pick up the box. Well my co worker picked his box up 2 days before me which came with dents in it right out of the box! Then i recieved mine. I was missing the keys to the bottom chest and had dents in box . i was very disappointed in this. I wont be buying anything from home depot from now on!! December 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY HAPPY Ok, so I purchased 2 of these tool boxes when they had the Christmas 2013 sale for about $550/ea delivered to my home. They both arrived to my home from the warehouse in about 2 weeks, in perfect condition and in undamaged boxes. Don't expect heavy gauge steel construction and initial super smooth drawer operation. It is made with thin metal, and the drawer latches take some break in time which is improved with a few drops of oil. Assembly of the wheels was easy but took about 20 mins each due to limited access to the bolts...but this didn't bother me at all. I stuffed all of the drawers with heavy tools, and experienced no problems with use. Putting weight in the drawers does actually help smooth the latch operation as well. I love that it also includes FREE foam drawer liners that are pre-cut PERFECTLY. This is the PERFECT choice for the money, for home garage use!! Personally, I wouldn't be afraid to use it in a small shop and it may even work well for a new technician starting out on a limited budget. The drawers are wide, but most are not very deep. So hand tools fit no problem, but tool cases and boxes may not fit. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase! If you know the limits of what you're getting up front for the money you're spending, you won't be disappointed, and you will probably be impressed. If you want thicker gauge steel, and stronger construction, then spend 2x or more money for what you're looking for. I'm actually looking at possibly buying one or two more of these in the future when they go back on sale. January 24, 2014
