HF service cart -- 50% off
« on: September 28, 2011, 10:40:41 AM »
This their most popular service cart and almost identical to what Sunnex and others are selling for close to $500. If you need a service cart, then this is the sale you've been waiting for. Current sales price is $149

That looks perfect as little as I need one these days. Just a long trip to get one.

Question for you are these of any use?  http://www.harborfreight.com/6-piece-socket-drawer-organizers-99717.html

Don't know rusty. This is the first time I've seen them. That said, many years ago I had a similar setup from Sears -- and although it wasted some space, it was very functional.

It was similar to this one ...

Dang those look identical! HF just costs half as much.

I was thinking they would be handy for a routine maintenance drawer.

Yup, that is a good idea.

I'd love to have a servcie cart filled with just the basics because my main toolbox is totally overfilled and pretty much stationary, but I just don't have the room.

I really  dont need one but since the wife likes crafts and sewing, saving trinkets etc and a place for "her" tools it would be ideal for her...Xmas is coming you now

Good idea there FM. It would be a great crafts box.

GF I used to have one of the small Craftsman rollers I used as my routine work cart. I had the specialty tools for the different things I was usually working on in divided sections in the bottom drawers.

I bought those Rusty and none of my Craftsman sockets fit, and neither did my HF's.

GF,

I picked up one of the HF 5-drawer service carts back in 2009 and it has really worked out well.  I keep it in a storage unit with a project truck I'm working on.  It has plenty of drawer storage, a big parts/supply shelf, a side shelf for spray cans, and really nice top bin with built in hanging tool (drivers, picks, prybars, and long extensions) storage.  I can't tell you how nice it is to have just the tools you need right where you need them.  To be honest I can't find anything to complain about in this cart.  It's just a well made, well thought out service cart.  I think I caught mine on sale for about $170 out the door.  The only thing better would have been to catch it on sale at $149.

I would recommend this service cart without reservations to anyone in need of a solid, practical, lower cost service cart. :spam:
When my wife leaves me, my dog dies, and they repo my house, I'll still have my tools.
