    Harbor Freight Tool Box

    Dude...just got done looking at a huge tool box at Harbor Freight. Typically their stuff doesn't hold up and I'm skeptical of getting tools and stuff from there, but I gotta say, I was impressed. I'm a Snap-On / Mac kinda guy, but this was descent. I mean even from a perspective that it looked like it might hold up nice. I don't make a living out of mine, so for home use I'm guessing it would be just fine. Anyone have a box from there or any experience? This equivalent tool box from Snap-On is $5,000+.

    Has gotten great reviews on garagejournal.com and a lot of those guys are die hard SnapOn guys.

    Look at the brand stack-on, no, not snap on stack-on. They make usa made tool boxes and chests just like snap on or habor freight. Very good quality it looks like.

    A lot of folks on Garage Journal are using the Harbor Freight boxes as a built in toolbox for their workbench. Makes a lot of sense if you are limited on space and want your tools close at hand. If you really have the room, get two and build both into the workbench.

    I have wanted one of the HF ones for a while. I finally went to the Husky when they were on Black Friday sale for $200. 40" really nice box and for a home owner its going to be plenty heavy duty. Im sure that HF box would be just fine in the same situation. My friends dad has one but its more of tool storage now he doesnt really use it much. Pretty heavy duty for $300

    Check out Strictly Toolboxes line? They have great reviews. I have a large box for my FT job and it holds all my heavy tools without any issues. Pretty heavy gauge steel and drawer slides for the price if you're looking for a good investment that won't break the bank.

    I have been looking at getting one as well. They get great reviews. I am looking at getting rid of my Snap-On and upgrading to a larger HF box!
