With a high number of new tool cabinet/chest combo releases in the last year, Husky – a house brand at Home Depot – proves to be a worthy adversary in the cabinet/chest space. In fact, according to information gleaned from a Husky tool chest review, their new 52 inches and 56 inches tool storage offerings are sturdy, feature-rich, and great looking enough to be considered over various others.
Husky’s new line can be bought in either a 52 inches 15-drawer option or a 56 inches 23-drawer option. They both feature an all-welded steel construction coupled with a fantastic black matte finish in powder coat that’s resistant to rust and unlike the glossy finishes from other brands, won’t showcase your fingerprints. Both of these rest on six industrial-grade polypropylene casters – six in number (5”x2”), four of them swiveling with brakes and the other two not swiveling. These casters can support as much as 2,500 lbs.
Both of these units have full extension soft-close drawers with a reinforced top-deck lid sustained by heavy-duty gas struts. The slides on the ball-bearing drawers can support as much as 120lbs. each and the bottom cabinet drawers feature two slides on either side, making it possible for them to support a weight that’s twice as much.
