Opinions or HF tool cart

Big sale at HF coming up next month. Looking at this cart for $185. The reviews are mixed but it seems like it's ok as long as it's not broken straight out of the box. Anyone have any experience/feedback on it? What about other similar ones?


Thanks,
-Steven

I have two of them. They are a great cart for the money. You need to take your time assembling it and it will be fine. The new line of US General tool boxes are great also. I laugh at the two young guys I work with who bought $7000 tool boxes. No need for a High Dollar Snap on or Matco Tool box to hold my tools in.

I have had one for a couple of years now and like it. I don't roll it around at all, so can't give you an opinion on its mobility. I put together on my own so that shouldn't be an issue for most folks.

PS- I'm pretty tight with a buck.
"Sale" and "Harbor Freight" are either synonymous, or an oxymoron. I have yet to settle on a side.

That said, that particular tool cart is pretty nice. A buddy has one and loves it.

A co-worker has one that goes all over. He's not particularly kind to it but loves it. For what it is, it's probably the best value for the dollar out there. I have one of the larger US General tool boxes and I feel my money was well spent too.

Thanks Y'all for your feedback. I'm definitely going to pull the trigger on this. Now I have to figure out what color to get!

I have had this tool cart for about 3 years, I used it for my former aviation job. Had to move to different jobs on different aircraft.
I put lots of miles on it. Still going strong.
