5 out of 5
I’ve always wanted a tool chest, but was never able to spend the bucks for an expensive set. I happened to see this one at my local HD, and they had a pricing special, buy the base and the chest, get the middle chest free. Reading the other reviews, I saw that these seem to damage easily in transit, so I made sure the boxes I picked weren’t damaged. (Some of the ones at the store were).
I wouldn’t call this item heavy duty, and I wouldn’t expect it to hold up to long term daily shop use by a professional. The gauge of steel isn’t tremendously thick, and it’s just not in the same league as the pro sets that cost 2-3 times as much. However, for a DIY’er like me who is going to work in the garage a few times a month, this is perfect. It is economical, good looking, functional. The ball bearing drawers work great. Let’s face it, if those aren’t good, that kinda ruins everything. It’s easy to move around, although mine will stay put most of the time. As long as you’re not dropping heavy things in the drawers and slamming it around, I see no reason why it won’t last for decades.
I’m glad I found it for the price I did, it’s a great option. What surprised me the most was once I got it together and started putting my tools in it, I still had several empty drawers. Time to get more tools!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RIKK Very flimsy constuction
I knew this was not going to be a heavy duty tool box. I bought it anyway because I need a place to keep all my tools. I am not a professional mechanic, only use my tools a few hours a week so this will probably be OK for me. If you intend to make a living with your tools, I'd look for a tougher box to put them in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Horrible design? Horrible quality control?
I was completely disappointed in this item. Even from the start it looked like the drawers did not align well. When closing the lid to 'lock' the drawers, two would still open. Once you put tools in the drawers and added weight, more problems showed up. Some of the drawers would no longer latch when closed, and therefore if there was a slight lean forward would roll open, The top lid will not close completely, probably because of problems in the latching mechanism.
Where the problem is, I'm not quite certain. It may be misalignment in the construction, thus a quality control problem. But it also might be in the design. While being steel, they steel is very thin and the drawers felt weak and easily able to bend out of shape.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Ample Drawers
Fits snug to the bottom cabinet. I secured with sheet metal screws. Wide drawers hold lots and with the drawer liners, nice and quiet. Drawers are smooth operation and stay shut during rolling the chest. Shipped with no damage to this piece and on time. Lid assist shocks work evenly and hold lid up and out of the way. I did remove the locking bar that actuates the drawer locks due to wanting to open drawers without raising the lid first. I can still lock the lid. Just what I needed. I would buy again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by qualityjobs ok for the price
the box is ok. had to tweek top so drawer locks worked & box lock engaged. drawers want to close unevenly, but steady center or 2 hand (one eachside) does the job. storage is adaquit for size. removeable tray in top would be nice for those grab-n-go times (sockets,screwdriver,pliers, wrenches, etc.). all-n-all good box for home diyer, mechanic, handiman fixes.
