    Have you guys seen the 72” ever on sale?

    Big advantage on the 72” over the 54” ?

    Years ago (July 2018) I got the 72" on sale for $1100. I haven't seen it on sale recently. The 72 holds more tools. And it has suspension to make it look cool and to flex on the smaller boxes.

    For what it's worth I just ordered a husky heavy duty (thicker gauge metal) 72" box for 1199. 18 drawers.

    What are you seeing for 52in and 58in? I couldnt find those measurements

    But overall Husky is having a 25% BlackFriday sale on most items, that's about as good as you're going to get barring extreme rare discounts here and there.

    I remember when researching years ago the harbor freight was reviewed better than the husky for better bearings and overall quality. Don't know how that has changed in the past few years.

    Wouldn't be surprised. I like my toolbox but I've had bearing issues over the last ~6 years. Some literally fell apart, some have been stuck. Certainly not problem free.

    I got a husky at Home Depot Black Friday last year. Absolutely love it. Keep an eye there also.

    FYI the wrenches are excellent for hard to reach bolts and nuts. Buy a set if you wander into HF in the next few days.

    Re: Harbor Freight tools that DON'T suck

    I told myself I’d never buy life safety equipment at HF but I’ve been wanting a set of this style jack stand for a while and they had a 10% off Daytona coupon a couple weeks back. https://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-...ads-58789.html

    Then last week they had the 10% no exclusions coupon so I went back and picked up an Icon 1/2” torque wrench. https://www.harborfreight.com/12-in-...nch-64064.html

    Now I’m just waiting for these Knipex knockoffs to be in stock at my local store… preferably with another coupon. https://www.harborfreight.com/10-in-...rip-58200.html

    I've used HF jack stands and jacks for 10 years, including ones that were recalled. They are as safe as any other jack stand, maybe more so because they cared enough to recall them. Just make sure know you where and how to use them and don't use them on soft, uneven, or sloped surfaces.

    The knipex design is way better than channel lock. Jaws stay parallel since they are cammed. They work awesome when you don't want to mar the surface as well.

    I have those knipex in small and large. They're awesome for working on my well and sprinkler system. Grip the large pvc without destroying anything.
