Review of Key Features and Benefits

Massive Work Surface
The thick solid wood worktop provides an expansive 61” wide surface, creating 1,403 total square inches of usable area. Whether you need space for large projects, staging tools, or setting up equipment, this workbench has you covered. The 1” thickness ensures durability, preventing warping or damage over time. I particularly appreciate how the edges are sealed to prevent moisture damage. The worktop can even be flipped over if the top side gets heavily worn or damaged.

Abundant Storage Space
With 15 steel drawers, this Husky workbench offers an impressive 24,187 cubic inches of storage capacity. The drawer sizes range from shallow 2.5” height to deep 9” height, giving you options for organizing tools both large and small. I can fit all my wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, sockets, and other hand tools with room to spare. The full-width top drawer is perfect for frequently used items or bulk storage. Ball bearing slides ensure smooth operation, while the soft-close function prevents frustrating slamming.

Heavy-Duty Construction
From top to bottom, this workbench is built with high quality materials and construction. The all-welded 19-gauge steel frame provides exceptional strength and durability. Aluminum corner guards protect the workbench from dings and scratches during use or when moving it around the garage. The powder coated matte black finish resists chipping and corrosion. Large swivel casters securely support over 1,000 pounds, allowing the workbench to be moved where needed.

Convenient Power Access
The built-in power strip provides 6 AC outlets and 2 USB charging ports right where they are needed most – at the workstation. No more dealing with extension cords strewn across the floor. Easily power corded tools like drills, saws, sanders, or grinders directly from this workbench. The USB ports allow you to charge phones, tablets, or other USB devices. With the cord hooks and ample room under the worktop, you can neatly organize the tool cords so they don’t get tangled.

Performance & Durability
I have been using this Husky workbench in my garage workshop for over six months now. The performance and durability have impressed me time and time again. The solid construction handles heavy use without issue. I regularly load the worktop with 100+ pounds of tools, lumber, and other materials needed for my projects. The wood top has proven quite dent and scratch resistant. The matte powder coating also resists chipping even when I accidentally bang the drawers with tools.

The ball bearing drawer slides operate super smoothly even when fully loaded with heavy tools. Soft-close is a nice feature preventing noisy slamming. The deeper drawers fit my circular saw, jigsaw, and other bulky power tools nicely. The full-width top drawer holds a ton of miscellaneous supplies and extras. I use the smaller drawers for organizing all my wrenches, pliers, drivers, and other hand tools conveniently within reach.

With heavy projects, I appreciate being able to roll the workbench right to my truck for loading lumber and materials. The wide work surface has allowed me to break down sheet goods like plywood safely. I also keep my benchtop vise mounted here for quick access to a sturdy base for tasks like filing or pounding. The integrated power strip powers my charging batteries, corded tools, and other electronics all in one convenient spot.

Stylish Design
In addition to being highly functional, this Husky workbench has an attractive, polished look. The matte black finish gives it a sleek, sophisticated style. The aluminum corner guards provide some visual contrast while also protecting the vulnerable edges and corners. The seamless steel construction and evenly spaced drawers create a clean, refined appearance. Yet the workbench still maintains a tough, durable industrial look suitable for any garage or workshop environment.

For maximum utility, there are no doors or walls enclosing the storage area. All the drawers are easily accessible. This open design allows you to view contents at a glance. The drawers include pre-cut foam so you can neatly organize hardware, parts, and tools of all sizes. For safety, the drawers can be locked when not in use. The integrated cord management hooks keep your power cords neatly out of the way.

Affordable Price Point
With an MSRP of $998.00, this Husky workbench is competitively priced given the abundant storage capacity, heavy-duty build quality, and integrated power supply. While not entry-level budget pricing, the combination of storage, workspace, and durability make this workbench a great value. The quality is on par with premium tool storage brands like Snap-On but at a fraction of the cost. For home garage use, this Husky workbench provides professional-level features and utility at an affordable price point.

Where to Buy
The Husky 61” 15-drawer mobile workbench is sold exclusively through The Home Depot stores and website. Inventory varies by location, so check availability at your local store or online. Online purchases over $45 ship free to your home or you can opt for free in-store pickup.

I highly recommend taking measurements of the assembly area prior to purchase. The 61” width may be too large to fit through doors to back workshops or garages. With a 1,009 lb fully loaded weight, you will definitely want another strong person to help assemble and move this monster workbench. Take your time following the instructions to ensure everything is square and level.

Overall Review Verdict
After half a year of heavy use, I remain impressed with the Husky 15-drawer mobile workbench and would highly recommend it to anyone equipping a garage or workshop. The abundant storage keeps all my tools and supplies organized in one place. The sturdy steel construction has proven reliable and durable. Smooth rolling casters make it easy to move this heavy workbench around my workspace. The integrated power strip is extremely convenient for powering equipment and charging devices right where I need it. This workbench has made my garage workshop safer, more efficient, and easier to use. For the price, you simply won’t find another workbench that offers this combination of quality construction, ample storage, and useful features.
