I don't have such a cart/box in my shop. I never had a use for one, but they do seem very efficient for a shop where you must be very mobile in your work assignments. With that in mind, I'd take the advice of guys like Tim that are working professionally in such shop environments. They really understand what works and what doesn't, and what's cost effective vs. what's not.
I wish I could say I was doing things that specifically warrant the cart and it's mobility,  but for me these HF carts just seem like an efficient box for their size.
My uncle has one and bought one for his youngest son who both use them as regular tool boxes.
I think my uncle has a couple and a typical stack too, but I don't believe they're necessarily using them as mobile carts.

Personally I'd go with the 5 drawer. To me that extra drawer is worth the $50 difference. Also more storage is always a welcome thing.

That's what I'm thinking,  and that particular drawer it adds appeals to me for some reason.
Maybe I can fit my 3 chargers and my tool batteries in there.

Their bottom box is tempting also, but I like the idea of the deep top, and those holes on either side in the top for my handle pry bars maybe, or screwdrivers.


Another thing I liked about the cart is that my pancake compressor might be able to fit in the bottom.

I haven't been in HF in a while but from what I recall the carts had most of thier storage under the lid on the top. A bit different animal than a roll cabinet. Back when I was looking for more storage I opted for the 52in? Roll cabs instead of a cart because I wanted to put a top box on it.
Yes a lot of the storage is under the lid.
I'm fine with that because I don't need much more additional storage than what these offer anyways and I like the top area they've got.

Same here. Heating oil over 6 bucks. Kerosene made it to over 8 bucks but now its back at 7.90 or so. Winter is going to kill this state. I just bought 6 cords of tree length fire wood.

GENERAL TOOL AND MACHINE DISCUSSION / Re: I'm thinking about some new tool storage.

When assembling use red locktite, or at the very minimum blue.

 Higher dollar box you're buying better slides, and casters just FYI

Only you know what is the best fit stick with it.

Out in my garage/ shop all I've really got is a pegboard and my old Dayton/ Waterloo 6 drawer top box that belonged to my grandfather.
I'm not looking to replace the box but it's showing it's age and the drawers are small / shallow , so I'm looking to get a 2nd box.

I love American made most of all, but the affordable domestic stuff all seems flimsy and around me 2nd hand is gonna be worn out or overpriced so that's not really gonna work here I don't think.

I'm thinking of going the US general route, they're affordable enough and the 5 drawer cart I put together for my dad seemed pretty well made.


I am trying to decide between 2 different 30" carts from HF, the 4 drawer and the 5 drawer.

The 4 drawer cart seems like a good option, especially with the large top space these cars have which could easily take care of all the storage concerns I currently have, it would probably be awhile before I have even that filled up in addition to my top box.

The 5 drawer box isn't that much more expensive, and I kind of like the idea of that top right drawer they have. I don't know what I'd really use that particular drawer for but might eventually wish I had it.


Which box would you choose ?

I feel like the 4 drawer could be enough till it eventually isn't somewhere down the line but if I can outgrow it I could probably outgrow the 5 drawer too.
I've already got the tool bug bad, and I'm not sure it's a good idea to buy excessive storage that I'm compelled to fill up  :)
