The Innovative and Versatile Husky 9-Drawer Mobile Workbench

Finding the right workbench to suit your needs as a hobbyist, DIYer, or professional can be a challenge. You need ample storage, a durable and functional work surface, and something mobile enough to move around your garage or workshop. Husky’s 52-inch Heavy Duty 9-Drawer Mobile Workbench aims to tick all those boxes and more with its innovative and versatile design. I recently had the chance to assemble and test this workbench cabinet to see if it lived up to the hype. After using it for several weeks on various projects, I’m impressed by the thoughtful design, ample storage, and configurability that makes this Husky workbench a great addition for any workspace.

Unboxing and Assembly

The workbench arrived neatly packed but disassembled in two large boxes weighing in at over 300 pounds total. Luckily, the instructions for assembly were straightforward and it took me under two hours to fully assemble the unit using basic hand tools. All the nuts and bolts were nicely organized and the metal cabinets feel sturdy and rigid once put together. The wood work surface comes pre-assembled and attaches securely to the top of the cabinets. I was impressed by how square and rigid the entire assembled cabinet was with no wobble at all. The packaging was well-designed to prevent damage during shipping.

Storage Capacity

This storage workbench includes nine full extension drawers for ample storage space. There are five 24” deep drawers, two 12” deep drawers, and two extra deep 6” drawers at the bottom. This combination is great for storing hand tools, power tools, hobby supplies, automotive accessories, or anything else you need quick access to in your workspace. The total storage capacity is an impressive 20,527 cubic inches by my measurements.

The drawers themselves are very well made from thick steel with smooth ball bearing slides. The larger bottom drawers are rated to hold up to 200 pounds each while the smaller drawers can hold 120 pounds. Even when loaded up, the drawers open and close effortlessly without binding. This amount of robust storage makes the Husky workbench equally at home in a professional auto shop or your home garage.

Mobility and Locking Features

Despite its storage prowess, this Husky workbench remains easy to mobilize thanks to large 6-inch casters with rubber tread two of which can lock. I found it easy to roll the cabinet into place and then lock the casters to prevent it drifting across my shop floor while I worked. The tubular handle is useful for steering the workbench around if you have to maneuver it over uneven surfaces or thresholds. Weighing in at over 300 pounds fully loaded, the casters feel very robust and make it easy for one person to move this hefty workbench cabinet.

For security, the workbench has a high quality lock installed on the top drawer. One key is included that locks the top drawer which in turn locks all the other drawers as well. The key also locks the crank adjustment for raising and lowering the work surface height. This is a great feature for professional shops where you want to secure tools, equipment, and supplies at the end of the day. For home use, the lock gives you peace of mind against curious kids accessing your tools.

Adjustable and Durable Wood Work Surface

One of the most innovative features of this Husky workbench is the ability to adjust the height of the wood work surface using a removable crank handle. This allows you to raise or lower the 1-inch thick hardwood surface anywhere from 39 inches to 52 inches high to suit the perfect working height. Since the wood top adjusts independent of the storage cabinets, your tools and supplies stay securely in place no matter how high or low you position the work surface.

I found the adjustable height incredibly convenient whether I was working standing up or sitting on a stool. For example, I could raise the surface for comfortable standing work while assembling a project. Then later, I could lower it to the perfect height for hand sanding while sitting down. The adjustable work surface makes the workbench ergonomic for users of any height.

The wood work top itself provides a rock solid and durable surface for working on projects. It consists of two side-by-side 27” x 25” panels made from 1-inch thick hardwood with a smooth polyurethane coating that resists scratches and stains. It easily accommodated large pieces I was working on with ample room for positioning tools and supplies. The work surface has perfectly smooth edges for comfortable forearm support while you work.

Overall, the work surface provides an excellent workspace while still feeling very rigid when tightening hardware, chiseling, hammering, or performing other demanding tasks. Although you have to remove a couple bolts to adjust the height, it remains solid and wobble-free at any position.

Integrated Power Strip and USB Ports

Another useful feature built into this workbench is the integrated power strip and USB charging ports. The four AC outlets and two USB charging ports are perfect for plugging in and charging power tools right at your workspace. The power strip has an independent switch and sits flush along the back edge of the work surface so cords stay out of the way. This was super convenient for charging drills, sanders, weed trimmers, and other corded electric or battery powered tools. The USB ports provide 2.1 amp charging to quickly charge smartphones, tablets, or other USB devices.

Rigid Construction for Demanding Work Environments

Husky designed this workbench cabinet to withstand tough shop and garage environments. It uses thick 19-gauge steel construction with welded joints throughout the cabinet and drawers. This results in a 300+ pound capacity for heavy tools along with a 3,000 pound weight capacity for the work surface. The powder coated finish also resists rust, nicks, and spills.

During testing, I found the workbench lived up to its durable construction. The drawers rolled smoothly even when loaded down with 50+ pounds of tools. The work surface showed no signs of warping or damage after hammering projects and tightening clamps and vices. Although costlier than lower gauge steel cabinets, the heavy duty construction provides durability to last years or decades rather than just a few seasons.

Who the Husky 9-Drawer Workbench is Perfect For

This Husky mobile workbench is versatile enough to suit all types of users – from DIY homeowners to professional auto mechanics.

For home garage shops, the storage capacity is perfect for organizing all your tools, parts, and supplies in a compact footprint. The mobility lets you easily access the workbench from multiple project locations and vehicles. For household projects, the adjustable height work surface lets you dial in the perfect ergonomics.

Professional shops will appreciate the industrial grade storage capacity, accessibility, and durability. The optional lockable storage keeps valuable tools secure when not in use. The integrated power strip is perfect for professional use, saving outlet space and reducing cord clutter. The configuration of small, medium, and oversized drawers nicely accommodates tools, shop supplies, parts bins, and other commercial shop needs.

Overall, this multifunctional workbench is perfect for users who need serious storage capacity along with a hardworking and configurable work surface to take on all types of projects. Whether you’re a busy contractor, dedicated hobbyist, or a DIY homeowner, this Husky workbench provides an all-in-one workstation and storage solution.
