This is by far the best deal around on a box like this. Well-built and very attractive looking. Works awesome and a great addition to my set. – Dciguy5, Santa Clarita, CA

I work part time as an aircraft mechanic and did not want or need anything too large or too extravagant. With few exceptions, I have always been pleased with my purchases from HF and caught this cabinet on sale just at the time I needed it. I compared it to similar sized cabinets at the “big box stores” and this one definitely felt sturdier than those did, and for a lot less money. I have been using this for about 6 months now and could not be happier with it. It is well constructed and well designed. The drawers slide very nicely with very little play. It has held up well and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a rolling tool chest in this category. – SNL19067, Bucks County, PA

This is perfect for my shop and it holds most every tool I need when I am working on a car on the lift. It beats having to roll my big roll-away around. This would also be great for the home mechanic even if you have a roll-away tool box already. This is a high-quality, extremely well-made box with outstanding fit and finish. Buy it … You will be glad you did!!! – Geezer’s Garage, Torrance, CA

Snap-on truck wanted over $700 for almost the same cart so I went with this one and I love this box. Great buy for a beginner tech. Very happy with it. – VW express tech, NY

Customers often express how this cabinet compares to name brand cabinets but is a much greater value:

I have compared to my brother’s Snap-On that he payed $10,000 for. There is no reason to pay that much for a box. The drawer liners are a good quality. – Strokedimpala, Dutchess, NY

I love it. The size and quality for the price are great … I could buy something similar off one of the tool trucks but it would cost at least 5 times as much and nowhere near 5 times the quality. I can buy a lot of tools for what I saved on a tool box. Don’t hesitate. This is a great box for the money. –  Andrew Johnson, Norfolk, NE

Have owned most major brands of tool chests from store brands to commercial truck brands. This 3 bay 72″ PRO series tool chest will stand up to any box out there in construction and the materials used to make it. You look under the box and see massive steel structure for the nice casters to mount to with real bolts more than big enough. The welds look really good and all the riveting is tight. They did not cut corners when constructing this box and it is worth twice what you pay for it … ker, Atlanta, GA

Hands down is just as nice as a $7,000 Snap-On or similar toolbox. – Greg, Chantilly, VA

Solid sturdy construction. Load capacity excellent. Drawers work smoothly and are EZ to remove if required.

This box is very comparable to other major brand units but has a higher capacity rating than most. Comes with drawer liners. – Bip, San Jose, CA

I bought this roller cabinet to combine three different smaller toolboxes. There was plenty of room to put all of my tools together and plenty of drawers to put all of one type of tool in each drawer (e.g. wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, etc.) I like that the top section of drawers are locked when the top lip is closed.

HOW TO BUILD A CUSTOM TOOL BOX FOR YOUR EXTRA CAB PICKUP TRUCK

Extra Cab Tool Box - customer

There’s always a way to build a better mousetrap. Or, in this case, a better tool storage. If you have a pickup with an extra cab, you’re well on your way to getting there.

Trucks are the perfect vehicle for transporting tools and gear, but the storage alternatives, not so much. You can get a tool box for the back, but by so doing, you rob yourself of bed space– and expose yourself to getting robbed. You could throw them in the extra cab, but the run the risk of them getting mixed up, piled on each other and thrown around with every turn.

If you usually don’t have passengers in the back seat, then you’ve got some prime tool real estate just waiting for an apparatus of organization– in other words, a custom-made tool box behind the front seats. First thing, take out the back seats. This is usually pretty easy to do. Then, get the measurements of the extra cab space, from the floor to the top of the back of the front seat,  back of the cab to top of the seat, and then door-to-door. Using these dimensions, cut out a box from 3/4″ plywood.

If you ever need the extra cab for a group trip or you’re ready to sell the truck, you can easily remove the tool storage box and replace the seats, restoring the vehicle to its original condition.

Watch this video from FineHomebuilding for a detailed breakdown on how to design and secure your custom tool storage box for your extra cab.

5-Drawer Tool Cart Review

As a Harbor Freight blogger, one of the more entertaining things I get to do is look at customer reviews. For one, they can be very colorful. And let’s be honest: most of the time, someone thinking about getting a tool is gonna be a lot more interested in what another customer has to say than me.

5 drawer tool cart

Among the more popular products that get reviewed is the U.S. General 30″ 5-Drawer Glossy Red Tool Cart. One reason is simply because it’s a darn good tool box at a great, low price. Another (and this is just me philosophizing here) is ’cause it just integrates so well to whatever your special interest is, be it automotive, woodworking, electronics, garden-variety DIY, what have you. It follows you around the garage or shop easily, and you can personalize it in a way you just can’t other garage fixtures, such as with stickers, additions and accessories like bottle openers.

Yep, there’s a lot of great tool cart eye candy out there to give you ideas. Just go to Google Images, type “harbor freight 5-drawer tool cart” and let ‘er fly.

For the benefit of shoppers like, you though, the best reviews are the ones that answer all the pertinent questions. In regards to this tool cart, I wanted to share this customer YouTube video review, provided by ChuckE2009. In his 10-minute presentation, Chuck unboxes, assembles, tests, stocks and wheels around his 5-drawer tool cart, all the while offering commentary on the box’s quality, features and capabilities. In the world of customer reviews, I give this one an “A+.”

Check out the U.S. General 5-Drawer Tool Cart for yourself. Make sure you skim the customer reviews on the product page and, if convenient, go to your local Harbor Freight Tools and investigate it yourself. I think you’re going to find it’s a pretty cool box and a great deal.

44″ Tool Cabinet Mods: Backsplashes to Bowling Lanes

When it comes to Harbor Freight favorites, the U.S. General 44″13-Drawer Roller Cabinet #68784 is the undisputed champion of toolboxes. None of the other models fly out the door nearly as much as this one, and for several good reasons: It’s ample, it’s sturdy, it’s attractive and it’s affordable. And, as Harbor Freight shoppers are well aware, it’s frequently on sale so there are plenty of opportunities to save a chunk of change

44 product art

When new “44” owners post their acquisitions on Harbor Freight’s social channels, it’s a kick to see the boxes sitting proudly in their new homes– and an even bigger kick when they’ve been modded and integrated into work spaces. For example, here’s a “workbench” that spans the garage wall with six units:

long 44 workbench mod

Or this one with a magazine-model chrome n’ pegboard “backsplash.” It’s so pretty, I think I’d cover it to work on it. With this clever approach you double your tool storage on the walls, conveniently over the projects you’re working on.

44 with pegboard

I like this quad-box corner number, too. Lots of surface space with minimal movement; just turn to address the next phase of the project. Note how they’re fitted in a steel frame. Also note the beaucoup wall plugs.

Speaking of retrofitting, check out this next example where the owner– to solve a sloping problem in the garage– framed his three 44″ tool cabinets with 80/20 extrusions. The legs were cut at different lengths to accommodate the floor and he put two feet between each box to minimize torque load on the legs with unevenly weighted cabs.

My favorite Harbor Freight cab workbench mod, though, has got to be this one where the guy joined two 44″ boxes and covered them with old repurposed bowling alley wood, made of maple and pine.

The beautiful stain and clear coat finish lends such a touch of class to the whole workshop experience, it would make me want to go out and tinker every free moment I had (I’d just have to alternate my power tool days with my drinking days).

Visit The Garage Journal or search in Google Images and you’ll find a lot of other great mods employing the U.S. General 44″ 13-Drawer Rolling Tool Cabinet. Also, swing by your local Harbor Freight and get acquainted with the box, one-on-one, and see if it’s right for you.
