Wandering about Home Depot on Saturday, I noticed that the price of Milwaukee 30″ 12-drawer storage chest and cabinet combo (48-22-8530) had dropped in price from $498 to $448.
The price reduction should be nationwide, and the new lower price is also shown on Home Depot’s website in case you want to order it online.
We have had great experiences with this tool storage combo so far.
My Home Depot has lousy data reception, so once I got home I checked the website to see if any of the other Milwaukee storage products had been discounted. So far this is the only Milwaukee tool storage unit that’s been reduced in price.
To review, here are some of the more important specs for the combo:
- Measures around 66″ tall x 35″ wide x 18″ deep (official specs: 34.7 in. W x 66.14 in. H x 18.2 in. D)
- Total weight of 288 lbs
- Top chest with 6 drawers
- 2 drawers: 12.2 in. W x 15.9 in. D x 1.77 in. H
- 3 drawers: 25.79 in. W x 15.9 in. D x 1.77 in. H
- 1 drawer- 25.7 in. W x 15.94 in. D x 2.13 in. H
- Rolling cabinet has 6 drawers
- 3 drawers 25.7 in. W x 15.9 in. D x 2.8 in. H
- 2 drawers 25.7 in. W x 15.9 in. D x 4.9 in. H
- 1 bottom drawer 25.7 in. W x 15.9 in. D x 10.2 in. H
- Soft-close drawers rated for 100 lbs
- Bottom drawer rated for 200 lbs (2 sets of ball bearing slides)
- Reinforced, 6-gauge angle-iron trolley base frame and 20-gauge steel construction*
- 5 in x 2 in industrial-grade polypropylene casters
- Drawer liners and top mat are included
*I estimated the walls to be 19 gauge, but now the specifications say it’s 20 gauge.
For the quality and sturdy construction, both Stuart and I thought that this Milwaukee 30″ tool chest and rolling cabinet combo was a great buy at $498. Drop the price 10% to $448, and now you can get one without breaking $500 after sales tax in the US.

It’s been over a month since I posted my review of this Milwaukee 30″ storage combo, and my thoughts haven’t really changed. I’m still moving tools into it and trying to organize the drawers.
In the review I said that the bottom drawer was a conundrum, but I have since found a few tools to store in the lower drawer, such as my Ryobi inflator. I have thought about moving a corded circular saw in there too. I break down my sheet goods in the garage before I bring them down into my shop, and having a circular saw in the garage would save time. That large drawer seems like a good place to put it.
I’ve found that even with a few squares of double sided tape in the corners of the mats, they still move around inside the drawers a little bit. I’m thinking that maybe I need to use more tape — maybe two or three whole lines
