I bought this tool box to replace a previously used smaller bottom only Sxxx-ox roller cabinet. I was running out of space and started looking for a matching top box or some other solution. After looking around and researching for a while I was about out of options and not sure what to do. Everything I could afford was not very good quality and everything of good quality was out of my price league. Then I stumbled upon people talking about strictlytoolboxes on the garagejournal forums.
The ordering and shipping process was quick and easy. The packaging had the normal freight wear and tear but because of the great packaging there wasn’t a scratch on it. I would advise to have someone help set it up. I had to get my dad to help put the castors on and lift the upper box onto the lower. He was more than happy to help and see my new “toy” though.
I feel that it is not as high of quality as professional brands such as Sxxx-ox. However, it is head and shoulders better than the run of the mill brands and I feel that what you get for the price is phenomenal. As a side note, if you were one of those people who only want the best money can buy you wouldn’t be on this website anyway. Another minor gripe is the hardware for the handle and tabs that hold the two boxes together are on the cheap side. This doesn’t bother me all that much because it stays in one place in my garage and I only plan on moving it when I move. Plus this can be upgraded in the future.
Now that I own and have used this box I have no regrets. I love the color and drawer configuration. One great thing about strictlytoolboxes is there product line and ability to get what you want. Another thing I love is the top shelf. Overall this box is actually shorter than other comparable boxes I have seen. This allows me to see and use the top shelf without needing a stool or milk crate to stand on. It also doesn’t have a lip on that top shelf which makes it even easier to use. I use the top shelf for pry bars, breaker bars and other long or awkward tools.
I would not hesitate to recommend this box and strictly tool boxes, as a company, to anyone. (Posted on 8/31/2011)
