Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alti4 Lots of variety
The mechanics tool set came in a organized hard molded case that is very handy for storing. The tools are easy to get out and use on a project. There are 135 tools in the case, which gives you a lot of variety for any job. I opened my tools and began to use them on different jobs in the garage, I found them easy to use and well made. Another plus is that they are made of steel and have a lifetime warranty. Real good quality and I would recommend a set for anyone in need of an all in one tool set .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timtsb Awesome tool set!
I love this tool set. It is large enough to meet all of my needs, and the tools are of very high quality. It contains both imperial and metric sizes which are all clearly marked (as can been seen in the attached pictures.) I would absolutely recommend this set.
The only minor criticism I have is the red clips on the front of the carrying case (see attached picture) are not very secure. The very first time I opened the case one of the clips popped off. I was able to get the clip back on so I'm not too concerned about it right now, I'm just worried that I will eventually break it. The good thing is there are 4 clips that hold the case closed so even if one fails 3 should still get the job done.
I'm excited to own this tool set and I fully expect it to last a couple decades, if not the rest of my life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Good Starter Set
This set has the basics for most home projects. I like the carrying case, everything seems to sit tight in its spot, and doesn't fall out everywhere like with some cases. The small ratchet handle is very convenient for fitting in tighter spaces, and the extensions are good when you need a little extra length to get to your bolt. Overall a good value set to add to your truck box or have around the house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Great ratchets. You might need to round it out.
I've owned tools all my life, including stints as a mechanic. I've owned Snap On, Mac, Cornwell and Craftsman. I've paid an awful lot for some of those and these Husky tools remind me of how over priced some of the others are.
The finish on these is excellent, especially the ratchets, which are comfortably rounded. They are the first thing you'll notice when you open the case. I have a large Craftsman toolset in the barn and I compared the ratchets between the two. These look and feel so much better, but they also have a major advantage over the Craftsman that I own. They have twice the tooth count. I counted about 36 clicks in one revolution with my Craftsman and about 72 with the Husky. This means you don't need as much swing to click into the next tooth, which is great for tight areas. I suppose that smaller teeth are technically weaker and more prone to breaking or skipping if you really torque it, but for most of us, even the most punishing tasks won't be a problem. If you were breaking truck lugs with a pipe, maybe. Personally I'm excited about the new ratchets and I swapped them into my main set for daily use. This Husky set is for my truck.
My biggest complaint is about the decisions they made for what to include. To be fair all the manufacturers do this. I always seem to wonder what they were thinking. To be even more fair, though, if you ask ten people you'll probably get ten opinions on what should go in. In fact I noticed other opinions in some of the other reviews.
If they included two more metric and two more SAE wrenches you'd have 95% of what you need. That would be 17 mm, 18 mm, 11/16" and 3/4".
I'd tweak the bits. Bits are so cheap it just doesn't make sense to me to not include a few more, especially the torx.
The nut drivers? Why??? Why not just include a straight bit so I can use the 1/4" sockets? Then they give me more 1/4" sockets!
Would love a 1/2" extension.
The selection of 3/8" sockets is great, going all the up to 19mm.
The 1/2" selection starts at 16 mm and 5/8". Do I even need to call out what's wrong with that?
I don't understand the mix of 6 pt and 12 pt sockets. There's a confusing overlap of sockets between the two and it would be better to go with one or the other and offer more sizes. Look at the list and see if you agree with me.
I guess the point of my rambling is two-fold.
1. I just wanted to get my opinion out there.
2. I think you will need to round out you set with a few wrenches, a few sockets and extension and some bits.
I really wish they'd make the case with more expansion space to put these additions.
If you're on the fence about Husky like I was (having paid the price of this set for a ratchet alone!) I'm confident that you will be pleasantly surprised by what you get. I believe that for the average and above handyman these tools will last you a lifetime. I think your biggest decision isn't whether or not to buy Husky, but which set to buy. Get the biggest you can afford.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sal38 Great Tools for a Great Price!!!
This set of mechanics tools is perfect for the small mechanic and even better for the do it yourself homeowner. The set includes just about every tool you would ever need for everyday projects. They are all stored in a very handy storage box.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smarteboy Love the set except for one thing...
I love this set of Husky tools. My only complaint is that they count each screw drive bit and each allen wrench as "a piece" so really, the 135 pieces is not as impressive as it sounds. Other than that, I love them
Husky hand tools are about as strong as I have ever used, even using a cheater bar and and impact tools with these, I have yet to break one. They are very strong, and they get the job done.
I don't care too much for the blow molded case after I get my tools, I put them in my tool box, so I can't say anything about that except that it does its job.
All in all, a great tool set for a decent price. I like them a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lady All in One - English & Metric
I seem to always have to hunt to find the tool I need when something needs fixing. With this beautiful case, that holds all the tools tightly in place, my hunting days are over. I love that the tools come in English and Metric. I can't tell you how many times I ended up needing a metric size tool and couldn't find one around the garage that fit. The 3 sets of rachets will come in handy especially when I need to get into a tight area where the small one should do the trick. I have so many sockets that I can't imagine not having the proper one for the job. I've already used the combination wrenches and hex keys on my bicyle. The entire set comes with large, easy to read markings and its' chrome finish makes cleaning up the tools a breeze. I won't have to worry about the case opening up accidently because it uses a double locking system. I am very satisfied with this tool kit because it has everything that I need to do a job or project.
