Husky 26.5 in. W x 18 in. D Standard Duty 4-Drawer Rolling Tool Cabinet in Gloss Black
Any home DIYer knows you can never have enough storage and organization for all those tools. Husky looks to provide an affordable solution with their Standard Duty 26.5” 4-Drawer Rolling Cabinet. This vertical toolbox touts durable steel construction, ample interior capacity, and integrated casters for mobility. I recently tested this Husky roller cabinet extensively to see if it can withstand years of hobbyist use. Keep reading for my detailed evaluation.
- 26.5” wide gloss black coated steel construction
- 4 ball-bearing drawers with 50lb weight ratings
- Full-width front drawer pulls for easy access
- Large bottom drawer fits bulky power tools
- Built-in central locking system with included keys
- Smooth-rolling 4.5” casters with front locks
- Durable scratch and rust resistant finish
- Backed by 3-year limited manufacturer’s warranty
Unboxing the cabinet revealed a well-packaged and protected toolbox, with thick foam inserts preventing any loose parts from damage. Out the box, the gloss powder coat finish looked sharp, and assembly required just attaching the casters with included tools taking under 5 minutes.
Operating each ball-bearing supported drawer showed off Husky’s quality. Despite the budget price, the slide action proves smooth as butter, with minimal horizontal play when fully extended. Integrated detents prevent accidental full drawer separation while still allowing easy access.
The full-width front drawer pulls provide ample grip area, able to open compartments with fingertips. This allows accessing contents even when up against walls or obstacles. The included non-slip mats help tools stay in place during activity.
The large 7” deep bottom roller features welded steel construction able to easily swallow full-size circular saws, reciprocating saws, hammer drills and other large power tools. With some creative loading, an entire versatile power tool assortment fits neatly into the storage cabinet.
Fully-loaded with an estimated 300+ pounds of tools, thegloss finish showed no signs of warping or flexing thanks to the rigid steel chassis underneath. The casters rolled smoothly regardless of weight distribution, easily navigating my cracked concrete garage floor or uneven terrain. The dual-wheel front locks prevent unwanted movement when actively loading tools in and out during stationary work.
After several weeks of testing, opening and closing drawers hundreds of times, the ball bearing slides maintain their smoothness just like day one. No amount of simulated abuse including banging drawers and shaking the unit has resulted in any observable damage. Considering competitors with similar specifications cost twice as much, this Husky toolbox provides tremendous long-term value.
