This review is for the new Steel Glide 27 inch 8-Drawer Tool Chest and Cabinet!
WOW! What a beautiful tool chest! (Please see pictures)
The tool chest and cabinet arrived via Freight Truck in two separate boxes. Each box was manufactured to hold these very heavy pieces. I love the fact that the engineers that designed and built this unit put a lot of thought into the packaging. There is nothing worse than buying a metal tool chest and having it arrive dented from a poorly constructed box. Both boxes were quadruple reinforced and bound with strapping to keep everything from moving.
Out of the boxes, I had minimal assembly to do. Let's start with the bottom cabinet. This bottom cabinet came with 4 casters, 2 locking that swiveled and 2 fixed, 2 handles, 4 anti-slip pads for inside the drawers, and an instruction manual. All I had to do was ratchet on 4 bolts for each caster and then 6 bolts for each of the 2 handles. The top chest had the same 2 handles and 6 bolts.
Next, I stacked the chest on top of the cabinet, lined up the sides to make them square plum with the back and bolted on the "L" shaped brackets to secure the chest to the cabinet.
Once built, I made sure the keys worked in the locks and laid down the anti-slip mats.
Summary: Built extremely well, the drawers glide without hesitation, all the seams meet together, the locks are quality, the casters are chunky and solid, definitely not easily breakable and can withstand a lot of weight and years of use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by astonman The Best Tool Chest at this Price Point
I've never had a tool chest or even a decent tool box, so this Steel Glide Tool Chest is pretty impressive to me. It arrived via a freight shipper and was flawless upon delivery. Assembly involved attaching the wheels, handles, and the top to the bottom. It took me about 30 minutes because I didn't want to scratch or ding it. I'm not sure of the weight but it's a tad heavy. The large wheels however allow it to be moved around effortlessly. The drawers slide smoothly empty or full. I personally like the stainless finish of the drawers over the all black tool chest. What sets this tool chest apart from the rest is its weight capacity of 675 pounds. Other 27 inch chest and even larger ones have a lower weight capacity. Also you have the included drawer liners. The liners are black and cut perfectly for the drawers. I can open and close the drawers, also move the entire chest around and everything inside stays just where I placed it. The liners are an extra touch that I really appreciate. At the moment, my tool collection is pretty sad but what I do have is now nicely organized. My garage also looks pretty sharp with this beauty against the wall.

This is a heavy duty, solid tool cabinet. Assembly was easy, however, you may need assistance setting the top cabinet up to bolt to the bottom (a little on the heavy side). I was surprised to find that drawer liners were included (bonus). I can find no faults with the cabinet, and expect it to last for years to come!
My only problem was with the home delivery, which was no fault of The Home Depot. I notified customer service and they addressed the problem to my satisfaction. They offered to discount the shipping charge, however, once I received the cabinets and they were undamaged, I did not feel comfortable getting a discount on something that I didn't earn. My advice is to purchase in your local store, or have it shipped to a store and pick it up there.

I got this for my father for X-mas. Since then, he's said nothing but good things about it. Says it should last him a longgg time. Sturdy, beautiful, and spacious. All for a great price. So far, its a winner all around. Highly recommended.

I got this chest yesterday and all the other reviews about this are correct. It is an excellent value. It is well built and seems to be of high quality. It was easy to assemble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocketman Great tool chest with plenty of storage
I like everything about this tool chest. I have had it for 4 years and the fit and finish is excellent even in my non air-conditioned shop in this Florida climate. My only complaint is I recently experienced a failure of the support struts and I can't seem to find the correct replacement. I tried emailing and calling CSPS customer support with no response. Searching on line for a replacement strut hasn't produced the correct replacement. I will continue to search. Home Depot doesn't have replacement struts.

Compared to the Husky brand this one is better, but I could only get it on-line. I find that tool chests with doors on the bottom are useless and I prefer the 100% pull out drawers. This tool chest had heavier gage metal with sturdy handles, wheels and slides to handle the weight compared to other brands. The Husky brand felt flimsy compared to this one. Lowes Kobalt brand tool chest had one very similar but for extra $300 so it was not as good of a value. Came in two boxes and went together easy.

This tool chest was delivered in two boxes. Not much assembly was required. I just had to attach the wheels, side handles and then attach the top chest to the bottom.
The drawers are deeper as you go from top to bottom. There is plenty of space for cordless tools etc. The drawers open and close very smooth and the both the top and bottom cabinet can be locked.
