Boost productivity with a Powered Project Center

Get a flexible workspace and convenient tool storage with the Craftsman 5-Drawer Project Center. Five slide-out drawers provide convenient access to all the screwdrivers, socket sets, bits and other tools you need to access.

This Powered Project Center has a UL-approved power strip on the back for plugging in drills or an electric screwdriver without breaking your workflow. You'll be able to get more done in one convenient location, as opposed to wandering back and forth across your garage. It even includes a designated space for rechargeable battery packs, so you can keep your wireless power tools charged and ready to go while you work. Moving this mobile tool cabinet to another room is a snap. The sturdy, 93-pound project center rolls smoothly on four 2 inch casters, so your workstation is always ready when you need it most.

Good product for the price
I own four other Craftsman boxes. My main box is a red roll around box with seven ball bearing drawers. I have a six drawer ball bearing box that sits on top of it. I also have a five drawer ball bearing side box that hangs on the side of the main box. I love these three boxes, they were given to me as a Christmas present and I have taken good care of them since I got them in 1996. All of these boxes are full of tools. I have a couple of roll around carts in my shop, but I needed another roll around tool box that I could use the top of for placing my work projects on. So I was given a five drawer roll around box for my Birthday in 1997. It is very similar to the #59496 model. However the pressboard top actually slides left or right to reveal the hidden compartments. It does not have the ball bearing slides on the drawers,but they open and close with no problem. It was on sale for $100 when I got it, and it is really my favorite box. Mainly because of the cost compared to what was paid for the other three boxes with the ball bearing slides. I'm sure the steel sides are slightly thinner too. It doesn't have any problem handling 200-300lb powerheads from outboard motors placed on it. Anyway I just purchased the #59496 model for a buddy of mine for Christmas. It is stunning to see the difference in the prices of some of the premium "Mechanic" boxes compared to the lower priced homeowner models. I personally think that it is an excellent value for the price. Sure the drawers aren't silky smooth, but the casters are good quality and I bet it would cost $80 or more just to buy the four casters. So unless it is going to be used 24/7 and harshly abused on a daily basis I think it is an excellent value. I know the eleven year old box I have has been used hard, it still works as good as the day I put it together. I highly recommend it for anybody. And for the guy who said he was having trouble with the drawers, I'm sure if he took it back and swapped it for another one just like it he wouldn't have the same problem. The wooden top was a very tight fit and we had to hammer it into place, but I'm sure after using it for a year it will be no problem. Just like breaking in a new pair of boots.

Piece of junk

This tool box is good for the DIY but if u add tool rapidly like I do it gets full real fast and the drawer slides are terrible they cannot handle abuse when in a hurry

5-Drawer Powered Basic Project Center - Black

The cabinet on wheels is great, and makes us happy. The drawers are very spacious, the wheels ride smoothly, and the power bar should be very helpful on our next onsite restoration job. We need all the features the cart has.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Husband loves it!

This was just what we were looking for. Holds a lot of tools, has a work surface and you can plug it in to use multiple tools at one time! Great price too!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent value.

This is a great design, incorporating the power strip. I use it to keep my drills and rotary tools in, and run my chargers. I also keep a Craftsman Reel light attached to the pegboard on the side. My only gripe is that I wish they offered it with at least mid-grade drawer slides. The standards on this unit are a little lacking for the large drawers. I would pay more for that option.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

project center

My son-in-law says he really likes it. He has 3 children so keeping tools neat and orderly and out of reach from little hands is very important. The fact that he can roll this around makes it very convenient and handy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

perfect tool cart for the price

It is an awesome cart for the purpose it serves me. The drawers arent the greatest but for the price I knew that was so. The power strip I have used more than any outlet in my garage 10 fold. Love this thing.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A bit cheap, but still useful

The level of quality is a bit flimsy, especially the fit of the drawers and the function of the slides. If you can afford to move up to a higher grade, by all means do so. On the other hand, love the versatility and usefulness of the unit, and all of my tools finally have a home!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
