A few weeks ago I mentioned that I gave my son a 30" Milwaukee tool
chest and was so impressed that I ordered the 46" version for myself.
As luck would have it and after waiting for the day that it should have
arrived, about 10 days, I called to schedule pickup. After being on
hold for about 5 minutes the voice on the other end indicated that I had
paid for the chest but they failed to order the chest.
They wanted to talk to me about choosing another chest, in stock, or
actually ordering the one I originally paid for.
I went to my local store and inquired about a discount if I bought "2"
20" Milwaukee chests and a $50 discount per chest was offered. Then I
thought, 2 identical chests for $100 more than I had already spent?
I changed my mind entirely. I dropped the idea of getting either
Milwaukee chest and went for the Husky HD 52" chest. This chest has
weight capacity of 2500lbs vs. IIRC 1800 for the 46" Milwaukee. it also
has more drawers and like the Milwaukee the drawers are soft close but
with a 120 lb per drawer capacity, 240 lbs on the two bottom drawers. 6
casters and loads of storage.
Packing was very similar to that of the VietNam built Milwaukee but the
Husky is built in China. Some assembly required however every thing was
bolted or screwed into riveted nuts and fit was perfect. Bottom box
weight was about 280 lbs, and the top box was about 190 lbs.
I have transferred my tools from my old overstuffed 26" Craftsman and
still have about half the assembly available for more tools. ;~)
Home depot extended, with out me asking, the $50 discount towards the
52" Husky leaving me with a $50 credit. bo$nus!
