I am looking at getting a rolling toolchest for Christmas. Anyone seen any good deals for one lately online?

Sears is having a sale right now on Craftsman. The one they have at Harbor freight isn't bad.

I'm saving up for this one..........

I have a Craftsman that is probably at least 30 years old and still working great. Whatever you do make sure you open and close the drawers while putting quiet a bit of weight on it to see how smooth and easy it opens.

Snapon always makes quality products, and so do Craftsman. I'd buy either in a heartbeat.

I have heard a lot of good feedback on Montezuma brand tool boxes. IIRC they are out of IA. Otherwise Snap-On, Craftsman industrial line, & Mac are all good.

I've seen those rolling boxes that have their own generator and propane. BBQ and cold drinks while wrenching on the toys sounds good to me.

I have been checking out Kobalt (Lowes brand) and I am not impressed with any of their boxes.
I've seen some with monster stereo equipment, don't know how bad I need one of those, especially considering they only appear to play horrible music very loudly.

Kobalt tools aren't the best. If I were to pick a tool it'd be HF over kobalt.

one of my setups is a snap-on roller with 2 craftsmen chests stacked on top. and the other is a craftsmen roller with a task force(kobalt mini brand).

i like all of my boxes. they have treated me well. i could use some more storage but its ok. definitely good for the money

Wear out quickly? I've been told their composition is softer than a lot and they get ruined quickly.

I don't know if the same holds true with the boxes.

That is what I have heard. A buddy of mine tried them out, but wore them out in a couple of years.

Don't know I'm looking into it though.

I've noticed with warranties the don't cover much.

If you have been to Costco recently, they have a pretty cool roll away which is about 6' long. It comes with a wood top to double as a work bench.

Are you talking about that just over $600 stainless one?
