Sale price through June 23rd. Regular price is $600. Pay with your Chase Freedom Card and get 5% cashback bonus, effectively bringing the price to $473.

Same price as the wildly popular Kobalt tool chest close out deal from 2 years ago. Similar box but with fewer but deeper split drawers. I checked it out in person and it's essentially a reconfigured version of the previous tool chest combo. Unfortunately they're not using the Kwikset Smart Key locks anymore.

The Kobalt 42 in. 13 drawer tool chest and cabinet set is great for storing and organizing all your tools and hardware. The unit is made from high grade all welded steel construction with a tough, rust-resistant powder coat finish. 13 Drawers are all soft-close full-extension and glide effortlessly on ball-bearing slides that can support up to 100 lbs. you can charge your electronics and power tools even when the chest is locked via the integrated power strip with 4-outlets and 2-USB ports. An ergonomic handle and 5 in. x 2 in. casters allow you to easily move your cabinet around your workspace. Total weight capacity of the unit is 1,200lbs. both the till and chest have lock system for added security.
  • 100lbs. soft-close full extension drawers for smooth opening and closing
  • 13 Different sized drawers for storing and organizing all your tools and hardware
  • All welded steel construction with a tough, rust-resistant powder coat finish
  • Integrated power strip in top till with 4-outlets and 2-USB ports for charging electronics and power tools
  • 5 in. x 2in. heavy-duty casters ( 2-fixed, 2-swivel with toe locks) can support up to 1,200lbs
  • Gas struts support the tool chest lid and provide access to the charging area
  • Pre-cut drawer liners for better protect chest from scratching
  • Full width aluminum chromed trim drawer
  • 2 Access grommets allow storing and charging power tools

Good luck finding this. All of the local Lowe's in my area only carry craftsman. Sold out of all Kobalt tool chest last year. Kinda sad. The Kobalt boxes are 10x better than the craftsman garbage.

This is actually a new set. Just released into the wild (in my region) in April. For this particular setup, you can order online for in-store pickup. No hunting it down required. 👍🏻

Try running your zip code through BS for a local price check. Before posting I sampled 14 states throughout the country from east to west and all are showing the sale price of $498.

Actually saw this in my local Lowe's today but it wasn't on display, only in box. I looked it up and it had enough bad reviews to keep me away, I don't think this is the same quality as the old popular deal.

I have the "old popular deal" set. In comparison, it really does seem to be the same, save the reconfigured drawer layout and non-Kwikset locking system. Quality and sturdiness seems the same as the one I bought in 2019.

Yes, the relevant and then recent reviews were not great.... I am in the market for several bottom boxes, but prefer the more stable depth of 22" like Harbor Freight carries.

This 18" box set is probably fine for the average homeowner if they can buy it off the floor to inspect for dents, scratches and rust. Hauling damaged items back to store can be a pain.

PS: When comparing quality, shipping weight is a good place to start.

I have the old set that looks just like this. It's built solid.

Got one in San Antonio for the sale price. It says 3-7 days to pickup? Hope it goes well. I just bought the single bank tool chest from HF so I'll be returning

what's your zip? I'm trying to pinpoint which reigon(s) it's not on sale so I can provide a better description and title.
