Default New 56" Harbor Freight Toolbox!!!

I went to harbor freight to get my 6 pc. hex key sockets for $4 on the sidewalk sale plus 20% coupon for $3.20. And i stumbled upon the new US General 56" 11 drawer toolbox. The finish was SMOOTH! It was red. The casters were amazingly sturdy and the box itself was built like a brick. It had a nice Mat on top that was glued to it and it came with pre-cut mesh drawer liners. It was $800. I drew up on paint the drawer configuration for you guys. Wish i would have brought my phone so i could've taken a picture. I believe the drawers were 24" deep.

I do not know if it comes in black or not. There were no side boxes on display or top chests and the place was the busiest i've ever seen it so no one to ask. They had 6 registers going. And nobody but me looking at the box.

Your mission: If you so choose to do so, is to go back there this week-end, and take live photo's from it standing there.

All the drawers open, so we can see the depth and the sliders.

Also so we can see the casters etc. Should you or any of your IMF force be captured during this mission, the Agency will disenvow any knowledge of this mission!

This is your mission, go go Joe!

lol

Oh yeah, i forgot one bad thing about the box (well i think it's a bad thing) it has those finger lock things on the side of each drawer (like the 5 drawer service cart) which i'm sure could be ripped out but if i went to go into my box everyday i wouldn't want those. the slides were smoother than my HF box though.

I guess you could say push pin. It's on the right side of each drawer. I will see if we're going anywhere this weekend to ask if i can get some pics. I'm not lying. My Harbor Freight is on the other side of town but it's like a 10 minute drive.

Thanks, I don't mean to hijack.

There's been all sorts of response on this website about it, and it is one helluva cart for $120. If you need it, i'd say go pick it up.

Don't know what you're considering "official", but the harborfreightusa.com is the site for the retail stores. The harborfreight.com is the site for ordering via the internet.

I've seen it. The color is the standard toolbox-as-God-intended red. The latches are on the right side of each drawer pull. Underneath the pull is a spring-loaded slide latch with a bolt similar to a regular house door lockset. There is a matching hole in the vertical metal frame. I don't like the latch design. Just as a door latch rubs on the door frame, the bolt rubs on the box's paint (that's why doors have brass plates around the hole, rihgt?). The design does allow room to jam the latch open by putting a piece of cardboard, rubber tubing, etc. underneath the drawer pull so the latch would always be unlocked.

The box looks pretty well made. Clearly not a pro box but for a weekend warrior or a young pro on a budget this would be on the short list. It's very similar to the red 56" that Costco sold (sells?) for the screaming deal of $450 that someone posted here a couple of months ago. If the HF one is $800 personally I'd look instead at the Montezuma 41" for $750 delivered.

Costco box for $450. They are the same depth as I recall, just look different in the pictures:
The Costco version has six wheels and big handles on each end. The HF box had two BB drawer slides on the top drawer, the Costco box only one. The slides looked and acted identically though.

I looked at this today, the drawer locks are similar to the costco ones, but the box is about 4 to 5 inches deeper. All the deep drawers have double slides, they didn't have a price, so not sure how much of a deal it is. It looks like the 72 inch one that was reviewed here awhile back.

Questions about this 56" box:

What is the cheapest it has been seen selling for?

How much does it weigh without the drawers?

I want to build a steel workbench around this box and need to know if I need a pallet jack to mount it in the steel structure or if I can take the drawers out and put it in with 2 people?

Thanks

599.99. Finding the weight without the drawers isn't going to be easy. But id guess around 350 or so. Use the pallet jack. No reason to blow out someones back.

Wow, really? 599? The cheapest I've seen it was 730. Haven't seen any ITC deals on it yet though.

The lowest I've seen it is $ 699.00...

That's what my wife paid for my Christmas present...good lady, she is....

Use the pallet jack...back trouble, or a serious injury, from the box "slipping" and falling on someone, really would SUCK, and not in a GJ way...

At $ 699.00, this roller cabinet, is worth every penny...

You'd better check your workbench height, the 56"er is a little over 35" tall, without the castors...
