When it comes to tool storage, bigger is better, right? Not really. Most of the time, yes, but there are times when you just don’t need a full-size tool chest. Sometimes you just need a compact tool cart with a couple of drawers and a flat worktop, something like Viper’s tool cart.
These 16″ wide Viper tool carts may be small, but they’re not wimpy. Each drawer is 16-1/2″ deep and 12-3/4″ wide, with ball bearing slides rated to 100-lbs each. The top drawer is 6-1/2″ tall, the middle three are each 3-1/8″ tall, and the bottom compartment is 15-1/8″.
A cam-lock mechanism provides protection against unauthorized tool-borrowing and 2-inch casters make the cart portable.
The carts are 16″ wide, 18″ deep, and 36-1/2″ tall, and the frame is made from 18 gauge steel. Drawer pulls are made from extruded aluminum and the side handle is polished chrome.

The carts are typically priced around $280-$300.
They’ve got great specs and good lucks, but how well do Viper tool storage products perform? We’ve heard some good things in the past, but Viper’s not as much of a household name as Craftsman, Waterloo, and Kennedy. Please chime in if you’ve had any experience with Viper tool storage products!
