Home Depot has their popular Husky Steel Garage shelves on sale again (seems to be once every other month now). $149 with free pickup (or ship to store if your store doesn't have any left). Great shelf unit with extra weight capacity.

Yup, you can park a small car on each of the 4 shelves to save room in your garage.

Can you test it out and see if it's really bullshit so we can issue a Class Action Lawsuit on Husky?

I have 2 of these units already - and I wouldn't personally trust them with 8,000 total pounds. I will say that one unit holds all the leftover materials from our house being built (paint, tile, grout, etc.) and easily has 2,500-3,000 pounds of total weight stacked on it with no problem whatsoever.

Is this better?
Not really. They both are likely manufactured by Edsal. The Husky is 5" taller.

The key word they put is "evenly distributed".
Anyway, I have one of this rack and it's very heavy and steady. I put about 1000lbs on stuffs on the shelves and the rack holds well.

From Q/A on product page:

Just purchased 5 shelve units for a storage room. The units are good quality and assemble very easily. I've noticed the wire shelves need more support bars. There is only 1 support bar per wire shelve, which is fastened in the middle of the shelve. The outside edges of the wire shelve bend very easily if you put too much weight. I probably have about 100 to 200 lbs on the edges, with the weight evenly distributed on the entire shelve and the wire is bending badly on the edges. I'm going to check with Husky to see if they supply more support bars. If not, I'm going to have to use 2x4 pieces on every edge.

and with possible fixes:
Box shows 8,000 lbs total but not in the original configuration in my opinion. You should make a few upgrades and brace the shelves better than what is included with the unit. Use 2x2's or metal type rods to reinforce each shelf rather than rely on just one metal brace in the middle of each shelf. At the ends of each shelf there are plastic clips that hold the shelf in place and these are useless. Buy a pack of 1-1.5" #6 or #8 nuts and bolts with 1"-1.5" washers and reinforce the shelves by using these 16 extra pieces rather than the plastic clip(rivets)...Weight limit/load limit: BLUF...500-1000 lbs per shelf and I'd put heaver stuff on bottom shelf with less weight on each shelf as you go up and I would not put much weight on the very top...For example: bottom shelf: 500 to 1000 lbs, next shelf put 400 to 900 lbs, next shelf: 300-800 lbs and top shelf: 200-700 lbs.

In the case of crushing, lawsuits could reference this video which would implicate Home Depot, Husky and possibly store associate as well as she clearly reiterates the 8000 lb claim and even uses it as a major selling point.

Be pretty difficult to load it up with 8000 pounds anyway. A 24" wide shelf is only going to hold so much volume. Unless you want to load it down with platinum coins I don't see a point in trying to refute or prove the claim.

I bought 2 of these when they were $129 last fall, and although the frame of the units may hold 8,000 lbs technically, i do agree the wire shelves never would support that weight. Without extra support, or an alternate shelf platform, they'll warp and buckle under a few hundred pounds.

But these are good units for general storage and I'm happy with them. If you're buying multiple I'd check the boxes at store, one of mine had bare steel wire shelves, and the other had grey coated wire shelves, I had to exchange one so they'd match. The boxes were identical. Not sure If they changed them and my store had old & new stock or what but they were clearly different. Just a heads up
