This Husky 46-inch 9-drawer mobile workbench tool cabinet looks to be Home Depot’s best option for most people, and it is consistently one of the most popular tool cabinets on the market.
Looking over its features and specs, I am impressed with what Husky can offer for the money.
I’ll soon have a test unit on the way – thank you Husky! – and I’ve built up extremely high expectations for it.
(Husky is a ToolGuyd sponsor. They offered me a couple of tool storage review suggestions, and I decided on the 46″ model. After “kicking the tires” of my local stores’ demo models for the past few seasons, I am very eager to bring one into my workshop for extended testing.)
It’s *almost* on the way, because I haven’t yet made up my mind about the color (blue?!), but mostly because I need time after Thanksgiving to clear some space in my workshop for it.
The Husky tool cabinet features a solid wood top that measures 46″ long x 24.5″ deep, soft-close ball bearing drawer slides, 5-inch x 2-inch casters (2 swivel with breaks, 2 stationary), a total load capacity of 1200 lbs, and a power strip with USB charging ports.
The shallow drawers each have a 100 lb load rating, and the deep bottom drawers each have an extra set of drawer slides for 200 lb load ratings.
The side of the mobile workbench features a pull handle, power strip, and removable cord wrap.
Home Depot has the Husky 46″ mobile workbench in several color options. There’s blue, at the top of the page, red, black, all-black, white, and silver.
Red is a classic tool box color that you can’t go wrong with.
Black is also a classic rolling tool cabinet color that fits in anywhere.
There’s also an all-black model, with color-matched handle pulls, side handle, and casters.
I’m partial to the blue model, but this white-finish model is also a compelling choice.
Lastly, there’s also a silver model.
These models are all in Husky’s “standard duty” line of tool storage products, featuring 21-gauge frame construction and 100 lb drawer slides as standard.
What’s so Great About this Mobile Workbench?
Home Depot and Husky have a very wide range of mobile workbenches, tool cabinets, tool chests, and other types of steel storage products. Many are larger, some are heavier-duty, and a couple have interesting and innovative features.
Personally, I like the idea of a 46″ model – this seems large enough to provide a useful-sized work surface, but small enough to be moved out of the way when needed.
It has a full-width drawer that’s 41.6″ wide, 21.7″ deep, and 3.9″ tall. That’s perfect for longer tools, socket rails, and other such tools.
There are (4) half-width drawers, 3″ deep, (2) drawers that are 3.6″ deep, and the (2) bottom drawers that are 9.4″ deep. Those are great sizes for hand tools, power tools, accessories, smaller tool boxes, and all kinds of misc. supplies.
This 9-drawer tool box looks to be a great one-size-fits-most mobile workbench and tool storage cabinet solution.
My interest in a review sample is mostly about double-checking everything I heard about this particular model, but its particular drawer configuration looks to perfectly suit my immediate needs.
I have been testing a heavy-duty Husky mobile workbench for some time now – since my last sponsorship with them – and really want to compare it against their standard series.
I also need a mobile workbench in the middle of my small workshop for a short-term project, and so this seems like the perfect fit.
Back in 2018, I received this exact-same mobile workbench unexpectedly under a different sponsorship with Home Depot, but I couldn’t accommodate it. (My workshop gets awfully crowded every holiday season.) So, I passed it along to a local electrician.
They liked it so much that they bought a second one, and sent me this pic.
Since then, I have talked to more people, and Husky’s 46″ mobile tool storage workbench seems to be universally well-regarded. I am really looking forward to it!
At the time of this posting, Home Depot’s website has more than 4,300 reviews, with a 4.8 out of 5 star average rating and 95% of user reviewers recommending the tool cabinet.
I’ll pick a color and report back. If you own or have used this model, what have your experiences been like?
The all-black model seems to be temporarily unavailable. I’d say check back around Black Friday.
