It has been a year and a half since Dewalt first came out with a new line of ball bearing tool storage systems.
At the time, Dewalt said that their new 36″ combo would be followed to market by a 52″ 17-drawer combo that was priced at $1300. Well, the new Dewalt 52″ combo is coming to Home Depot starting Black Friday 2015, and it’ll be priced at just $800.
The new Dewalt DWMT75031 52″ combo comes with a 9-drawer roller cabinet and 8-drawer top chest, for a total of 17 storage drawers – 1 of which is full-width.
Each drawer has heavy duty ball bearing slides, and is capable of supporting up to 100 pounds of tools. They feature an auto-return mechanism for user convenience. The bottom extra-deep drawers have 200 lb load ratings.
You also get an extra-tall top compartment, what look to be gas spring lid stays, 6 caster wheels, and a side handle.
If sturdy, this combo would provide incredible bang for the buck as far as tool storage space goes. Personally, I don’t mind the yellow, I kind of like it. Hopefully my local Home Depot will have one on display for quick inspection.
Plus… in the Home Depot Black Friday 2015 ad it said something about a free 34pc Dewalt mechanics tool set (valued at $40 retail). We discussed this same Dewalt mechanics tool set briefly in our Home Depot Dewalt Hand Tool Deals post.

If even this isn’t enough tool storage for you, you’ll probably have to step up to a 72″ unit, like this Montezuma Elite 17-drawer cabinet, or settle for multiple smaller tool boxes.
