Harbor Freight 44in tool box.

Postby LRiddle » Fri Sep 29, 2017 8:03 pm

I've been looking for a new tool box for awhile now but I didn't want to spend the money on a tool truck brand box and the big box store brands were too gimmicky with their power strips and mini fridges and radios and they still weren't exactly what I was looking for. So after looking online and reading a bunch of reviews, I ended up buying the 44 in tool cabinet and top box from Harbor Freight. I'm normally pretty skeptical and selective about things I buy from them, but the reviews were good and I read good things about them on other websites and after looking at them in person and hemhawing around I decided to take the plunge.

So far I really enjoy it. The fit and finish is very nice and there is a ton of room inside. The overall construction feels heavy duty. The bottom cabinet alone is rated for 2600 pounds so it can handle most anything. All drawers are on ball bearing slides and they roll smooth. The deep drawers have two sets of slides for extra strength. They even come with non-slip drawer liners already installed so it keeps the tools from sliding around and holds them in place nicely.

I'm a big fan of these boxes and very happy I made the choice. I can only imagine how many thousands a similar set up would cost from Snap On and while the quality obviously won't beat Snap On, for an amateur wrench turner it's more than enough. It sure beats my old boxes.
I'll try to update this thread periodically and let you know how it holds up.
New boxes in their new home.
Double drawer slides.

Pre-cut liners hold my cheapo wrenches in place.
My old boxes. Pretty big upgrade.

Very nice!! I've heard lots of good things about these boxes. I think you've made a great choice and this is from a guy that has made a living out of a tool box for decades.

I have not had mine that long but it is as well built as anything that I have seen in the sub 1000 price range.
