Default Tool Box

In everyone'* opinion, what would you say is the best value for your money on a full size 41" tool box. In my opinion I think snap -on is probably the best quality but way over priced. The same can be said for Mac. I was thinking more in the way of Husky or Gray. If that was the case then I'm still looking at over $1500.00 Canadian. Any thought out there?

When I was looking for one I priced the normal places. For us it'* Home Depot and Sears. Both wanted almost as much as snap on..the boxes were too tall and too skinny.

Going to my local Costco I found a great box about 50 inches and all ball bearing drawers. Has treated me fantastic for years. Well worth the $600 USD I paid.

No higher quality than Mac, Jet, Matco IMO...

Overpriced and not worth it. Like these guys have been saying, make sure that whatever you buy has good drawers. Shoddy ones will show their worth very quickly.

I use all Husky hand tools, and am quite impressed. Never checked out their toolboxes, tho.

Gotta love Home Depot! The grown up toy store!!

Snap on. They last for years and they are built better. From the drawers down to the casters.

The average homeowner doesn't need a Snap On, especially at the cost. My HoMark or whatever it is...does a great job. has ball bearing drawers rated for plenty of weight.

It'* a good setup. I don't suggest the professional box for the homeowner. Isn't really practical. The price includes free replacement of any bad parts over time from working it daily.
