I've owned several tool chest over the past 35 years and have found this 8 drawer premium 40" Craftsman to fit my storage needs perfectly. It's no nonsense, simplistic design approach helps it perform exactly as I need to organize, protect and be efficient with my valuable tool collections!
The unit is very solid, has ball bearing drawer guides that seem to work better with each tool I add (believe me, they are loaded down too), easy open latch pulls that lock the drawers securely closed, a great arrangement of drawer sizes and configurations to fit every tool I need, a clean and easy to maintain rust-resistant paint surface and as great a competitive price as you can find in any brand!
It's taken me years to establish a useful and sizable tool investment and with the matching middle chest and bottom rolling cart. I've created a tremendous Toolman's Storage Dream!
Craftsman tools have always been in my family and I have grown to appreciate good quality and a good warranty, however, sears quality has slowly been declining.
I purchased this box and the matching bottom for in-store pickup. When it arrived, I first went to the tool dept to look at it. I was so disgusted with the quality, I didn't even want it anymore (and I only paid $220 + tax) over 60% off. This box should would be appropriately priced at $199, and then a good deal would be $99.
I guess sears has decided that their Craftsman name is so good that it alone can carry the company. At least with the tools, if they fail (and they do more often now because the quality is slipping) they will replace them with no questions asked. Beware that it does not work this way with their tool boxes. There is no such warranty for these boxes.
Folks, you generally get what you pay for, unless you are foolish enough to overpay for these toolboxes (and then you just get screwed). If you buy these boxes, just know that you are getting mediocre at best. If you are fine with that, maybe this is the box for you.
For me, I'll go back to Snap On toolboxes. Yes they are expensive, but they are made in the USA still, and really will last a lifetime. Even the value line if far superior to Craftsman. If you can't afford Snap On, maybe try a used one. You'll be happier in the long run.
I shopped around and really liked the design of the drawers on this tool chest for two reasons. First, this top chest splits the width into two sets of drawers which makes it more usable for organizing tools well when compared to 40" full width drawers. Second, the grip latch option keeps the drawers closed without the drawers having to be designed where you have to yank on the drawers to get them to move the first inch. This model's drawer design makes the drawer action much smoother and more pleasing to use. When I was shopping around at competing stores, the other options' drawers were all very tight causing a jerking action to start opening, or loose enough to allow drawers to roll back open once closed. The other advantage this chest has over competing models is the warranty. As a premium-duty chest, this carries a 5 year warranty. The other models I found in this price range carried 90-day to 3-year warranties. My only complaint about this top chest would be about the top compartment. The hinges are not gas shocks like many others in this price range and the locking mechanism is designed such that the top has to be open for any of the drawers to be opened. When this went on clearance for 50% off, I decided I could live with these flaws and bought the chest.

The box was slightly damaged. When I brought it up to the stock men they said it was inspected by someone and deemed to be okay. When I got it out of the box it had a small dent in that very spot. I have decided to keep it anyway as it is such a pain to exchange it for such a little dent. Thats why my evaluation was not perfect.
This is a great chest, love the bearing slides and the grip latch. So far it has been an excellent box and like it in black, does not show the grease and grime. :)

I checked this top box out at a Sears store before purchasing it for one of my sons. I thought he would really appreciate the "griplatch" feature due to the ease of opening each drawer. He's a Harley mechanic and needs to get to his tools without having to fight with opening a drawer. Tried the "glide" ball bearing but this was far superior. This is his graduation present when he graduates from college with his major in machine tool technology.

This item does not sit flush on top of the middle chest drawer. the security drawer becomes annoying because you need a separate key, if you change the locks to match.
