Tool Vault Tool Box Reviews

These reviews are for our Tool Vault line manufacturered by Montezuma. When Montezuma made changes to the 2013 model we decided to partner with Montezuma Mfg to continue to offer a model with detent closure instead of the new raise and release handle. We also decided to continue offering the stainless steel top as the standard.

A guy at work got an $8,000 box, and I can't say I was anymore impressed with that than this. I would love to see the difference between this and the Elite series.

Tool Vault 72" Elite box with Hutch Review

I'm very glad I bought it. I really didn't want to drop this much money on a tool box, and this purchase required a lot of careful consideration, but compared to the other brands out there, I saved thousands so I'm happy. The Montezuma represents a great value.

My coworkers who have other brands of boxes were impressed with my Montezuma. If you're a professional tech and you want to get a huge, pro-grade box without the gigantic price tag, definitely put the Montezuma Elite 72" series on your list of "must see" boxes before you buy.

Tool Vault 72" toolbox

I am very proud of the Montezuma box. I will let you know that the Mac man wanted to deliver the box for me to the shop, and I do have to tell you he was really amazed at the box. Even a week later when he come in to see if I might need or want anything wanted more information on the box. He opened the drawers to examine the craftsmanship of the box, and when I told him the delivered price to the house he about had to take a seat!

My new toolbox

I recently received my 72" Montezuma toolbox from Shannon at and I couldn't be happier with it! I got the Elite model with the bigger casters, stainless top, etc. It's huge -- 30" deep, etc.

Bottom LINE. Buy a montezuma. Buy it from shannon. Trust me. You can say whatever you want but when it's in your garage and you own it you'll be happy and dying to rub it in the face of your buddies paying every week just to be able to store there stuff in a brand name box.

56" Montezuma Roller Chest

When I first brought in my 56" box to class everyone was checking it out, most people hadn't heard of Montezuma before but all of them were impressed with the toughness and how sturdy it was as well as overall appearance. The icing on the cake was the price that I paid for my box versus what they paid (or still owe) from the tool trucks.

41" Montezuma Tool Chest and Top Box

I recently bought the Montezuma 41" Tool Chest and Top Box from and dealt with Shannon there. Great guy to work with and he made sure every question was answered that I had.

I am extremely happy with the product I received as I didn't think I would ever have this quality of a box as I will never spend the required money on a big truck brand box for my home garage.

I'm so happy about this box!!! I just got it today after ordering it last Friday (it's Thursday) and had it delivered to the shop. This is a great heavy duty box for the price!

Montezuma Portable Tool Box Reviews

Montezuma ME300R Portable toolbox

We had the older version beating around our farm trucks for 15 years, and in all that time, the only damage it suffered was the prong that held the largest wrenches broke (had three wrenches around 1 1/4" on it, IIRC). That sold me on the strength of these boxes.

Montezuma 36" Crossover

I recently purchased a 36" Montezuma Crossover top from Shannon at Strictly Tool Boxes and I love it. I am in school to get my degree in heavy duty equipment and diesel technology so I needed a box for the shop. I have only had my box for about a month or so but its really made quite the impression in the shop.

Extreme Tool Box Reviews

Extreme 72 inch tool box review

All the guys in the shop where very impressed with the quality of the box, even the ones with 6-10 grand boxes. A lot of them said they would much rather of purchased the extreme box instead.

All in all, I couldn't be happier, I got a solid huge tool box for 1/2 the price. I would like to thank Shannon at Strictlytoolboxes for the great product and service. I ordered this Sunday night and received it on Friday, not bad for free shipping!

Can't even come close for the price.

I have been a diesel mechanic for more than 15 years, owned Craftsman, Snapon, and many others, but this has been the best bang for the buck I have found. For this price you cannot even touch a used box of this size from the major brands and it easily matches their quality. Slides are smooth and very strong. First thing I did was stand in the bottom drawer and bounce. Pulled out one of the top drawer and hung off of it with little give at all and I weigh 227lbs. I would not hesitate to purchase this again or recommend it to anyone else. I can only think of three downsides: I wish it was made in the USA (support the home team!), I prefer drawer latches to detents, and I wish there was an option for more shallow drawers (I prefer square inches to cubic.) In daily use I find the detents to be a little strong, but it does come with softer ones if preferred; the casters roll smooth and the spring suspension lets it roll right over small bumps and debris and the fixed wheels in the middle make maneuvering easy. I just couldn't ask for a better deal on a toolbox if this quality. Also do not hesitate about buying online. I was a little hesitant at first, but after seeing so many positive reviews I gave it a shot. Customer service was awesome and very prompt with replies and made sure to call once my order was processed to confirm and explain everything. The order was processed and shipped out quickly and arrived within 3 days. If I am ever in the market for another toolbox I will be a repeat customer ...(Posted on 5/12/2013)
