      If you've grown tired of cheaply made products, you will like this chest. Everything aligns perfectly, feels solid, and works as it should. As an added bonus, this chest includes a 6-outlet power strip inside so you can charge your cordless power tools inside it. This chest (44-22-8510) is designed to go with a matching rolling cabinet (44-22-8520). I have both, so I'm reviewing the pair. You should be aware that these are heavy. I had them delivered to my house, and they arrived via freight on a palette. The rolling cabinet has a stated weight of 221.1 lbs, and the chest weighs an additional 158.5 lbs. Add about 25 lbs. to each of those numbers for the shipping weight, and you are over 400 lbs. combined. Thus unpacking and assembling these should be a 2-person job. (I did it by myself, so it is possible, but I don't recommend it.) Unpacking was very easy aside from the weight: cut the straps, remove the box top, and the sides slide right off. Milwaukee packed these well, and they arrived without a scratch (which is not something I can say of many other heavy items I've had shipped to me.) There is a little assembly required, as anything that sticks beyond the side of the box is not attached during shipping to prevent damage. This means you have to install the casters, bumpers, and handle to the rolling cabinet, and there are brackets to attach the top chest to the cabinet. Everything screwed or bolted in easily with perfect alignment. (The only issue I had was from me not reading the directions right: you must remove the pad from the top of the cabinet before putting the chest on top, or the holes for the mounting brackets won't line up right.) Everything about this feels smooth and solid. The casters are 5" casters. Much like a shopping cart, two casters swivel, and two are at a fixed angle. The handle can be installed on the rolling cabinet on either end, and you put the swivel casters on the end with the handle. (The top chest includes two swing-out handles which are built in--no assembly required.) The drawers are soft-close ball-bearing, and are rated for at least 100 lbs each (the bottom 2 drawers of the cabinet are rated at 200 lbs.) All drawers include pads to go in the bottom, and the top pad for the cabinet (if you don't use the chest) and the top pad for the chest are extra-thick (probably 1/4" of padding). For tool charging, the bottom cabinet has a built-in power strip that faces out, and there are built-in retaining nuts below it where you can put machine screws in to mount chargers to the outside of the cabinet. The top chest also has a built-in 6-outlet power strip, but it faces the inside of the top of the chest so you can set chargers inside it. These strips are built flush into the walls, so if you choose not to use them, you loose no space. I would recommend measuring carefully for where you plan to put this, as I found it wouldn't fit in my originally-planned location. With the casters the top of the cabinet comes to 37.5", and with the chest closed this brings the combined height to 62.5". However, opening the lid of the chest adds another 15.75" to the height, bringing the total height with the lid open to nearly 78.5". The only quibbles I have are fairly minor: 1) The power cords are fairly short (I think 6', but I didn't measure them), so you'll need an extension cord if you aren't close to a wall outlet; 2) Pushing the "ON" lever to lock the casters requires quite a bit of force (I've had difficulty if I'm not wearing a shoe with stiff soles); 3) Although the cabinet and chest came as a pair, they came with different keys. Hopefully in the future there will be a way to buy them so they are keyed alike. I did debate a bit on whether to rate the value as 5 stars, as these are not inexpensive. But I do believe there is value in quality, and I've found nothing about these that says anything but quality, so I decided to go with 5 stars. So in summary, these are very solid and well built tool storage units, so if you appreciate quality, check out the features and see if these are right for you.
