I really like it. Well built and moves easily. After unpacking it...the back was dented up but HD gave me a $100 credit which was fair. Contracts solvent quickly removed the decals and it looks great. Very functional and I'll never buy another Mac or Snap-On again. Excellent storage unit...can't beat the price. Thank you Home Depot.

I have been eyeing this 52" tool box combo set for some time and I finally pulled the trigger last weekend! I'm no pro mechanic, rocket engineer or aircraft tech...I just have a home shop where I tinker with my 71 Mach 1 and of course there are the DIY home repairs (read: Honey Do List) but For me, this tool box is perfect! It is big enough for my average collection of tools and it has already helped me clear the clutter on top of my work bench. It is nice to keep all my stuff in one easy to access place! The box itself was easy to assemble and came from Home Depot with zero damage! I immediately noticed the sturdy structure and stance of the box...it felt solid, even empty, as I rolled it across the garage to it's location in the corner. I love how the stationary casters in the center allow the box to turn on a dime. The casters on both sides swivel to help add to the maneuverability. The construction of the box is nice, it could be heavier gauge steel, but that would raise the cost and I feel that it is really unnecessary unless you plan on air dropping your tools into a remote location! This box is plenty sturdy! I did like the crinkle paint and self closing drawers on the PRO version but again, the extra $100 price tag was a deal breaker for only minor upgraded features. This box has soft close feature which I really like as well! The drawers do seem pretty robust. they are rated at 100 lbs each which should be fine for most guy's tools. If you have more than 100 lbs of sockets, split them into 2 drawers...problem solved! With 18 drawers, there is plenty of room for all your stuff! And then there is the hutch...ah yes, that beautiful, easy to open hutch that provides more storage for cordless tools or what ever! This is my personal favorite part of the box! It even has a multi-plug power outlet with 2 USB ports for all you power charging needs! I plan on adding a small LED light strip on the hutch lid to help with interior illumination! The pre cut drawer liners were the icing on the cake! Well done Husky! Well done! In conclusion, unless you are hard core mechanic that needs a box that will survive a nuclear blast or a stuck up tool snob that needs to justify your $12,000 Snap-On home box, this box is for you! It is perfect for just about any DIY'er! You won't be disappointed!

Excellent value for what I paid for it. Able to put all of my small and medium tools in the Cabinets. Like the power coat finish. Full opening drawers are very smooth opening and closing. Really like the multi- power plug in the upper chest for charging tools and have put it to use. Highly recommend using 2 fairly strong guys to stand up lower cabinet and to lift the upper cabinet in place. (Lower cab weighs approx. 240 - upper 140 lbs. Also recommend spraying top of lower cab. with WD-40 (R) (or something similar). This will help to easily slide it into position before securing the cabinets together and help to keep it from possibly scratching the surfaces (along with - I believe - some additional corrosion protection). I am also very happy that it came with sturdy pre-cut liners that fit perfect!

It is a nice tool box. My only complaint with it is all of the stickers on it do not come off with out leaving a terrible film that is almost impossible to remove. Dust collects on the sticky surfaces. Looks real bad. I have used 2 bottles of goo b gone and they still are there. Do not take them off.

Santa (Me) bought this for me for Christmas. It replaces a tool box I have had since I was in high school. I had outgrown that 26" wide set years ago and added two more 26" wide sets to hold everything. It was altogether too confusing trying to remember which box things were in. This is not an industrial duty set. But it is not priced like one either. I am using it to organize my tools in my garage (Home workshop). It is absolutely perfect for that. The drawers are "Full Extension". Meaning you can see everything in the drawer when it is pulled open. I looked at the 52" wide set that has the cabinet on the bottom right but decided the bottom shelves would just be wasted space, as I am not likely to stand on my head to see what is down there. The full set of drawers on the right is well worth the extra $100.00. I am extremely happy with this purchase and would highly recommend them for the light (home) user.

great buy
wonderful tool box very sturdy and well built also very spacious and far exceeds my expectations for a cheaper priced toolbox. just be cautious when picking up the tool box from Home Depot make sure the boxes identify which product you are buying because there are two different tool boxes under the same SKU number but they are different models one has a power strip built in and the other does not. check your boxes

Assembled easily, enough room for most of my tools. Drawers operate smoothly, but there was one that was stuck shut when I got it. Overall a great value compared to others I was looking at.

If your looking for a large tool chest this is a good one. It holds two smaller cabinets worth of tools. It’s heav, get help putting it together. The drawers pull out easily to make it lighter and easier to handle.

Very easy to assemble! Awesome box for the price! It would be nice if it had a little deeper top drawers but it still worked out fine for me.
