Halfords 8 Drawer Tool Chest on Castors £75 (previously £150)

Found 7th FebMade hot 7th Feb
Seems a reasonable price for a decent product. No doubt it isn't suitable or robust enough for professional use. But appears solid enough for my moderate needs. Castors are a little small but I don't plan on rolling this too far. Comes with nonslip cushioned inserts (draw liners) for each drawer. Available in store or click and collect. Postage is extra i believe.

Has previously been 75 with a free set of tools. Think they tend to switch around their chest/cabinet discounts quite frequently.

Quality on these is awful, if you can afford it go for the Industrial range

good find op, heat added

I got a trade card, from a mate who used to work in Halfrauds. Do they ever check ID for signature on card?

​I disagree... these have ball bearing drawer runners and are fine for casual DIY use. Of course the Industrial range is in a different league, but so is the price! I had the Sealey equivalent of this cheaper roll cab / top box for several years and it was ideal. Just upgraded to a much bigger, pro-quality unit just because a fancied treating myself for Christmas, but the cheaper version served me very well while I had it. If anyone is wondering, advantages with the pro-grade cabs are higher load-bearing capability, sturdier build, drawers that open all the way and they're obviously bigger so you can get more in them.

I own this very same drawer set, as stated by many it's ball bearing drawers are fine for non pro mechanics like me. Had mine for over 2 years with the odd sticking drawer freed after a gentle nudge.

Great find with fluffy traders card....

They really are awful quality and never been worth RRP.
Drawers stick and come out runners, hinges bend, made of very thin plate, castors are useless.

Comes boxed with the chest inside cabinet. Alright for in the shed but definately not a bargain.

​Oh, fair enough then... it looks very similar to the American Pro Sealey one I had, but this is obviously inferior quality by the sounds of it!

If you can find a similar quality product for less then let's see it. Or a better quality product for the same price? Fact is, for the price it's at, it's a deal. Won't find it cheaper anywhere else. As the description states, for moderate use, this is perfectly fine.

I bought this years ago and it's absolutely fine for a diy. Can be awkward on a rough floor but otherwise a good bargain.

You can adjust the castor washer so they don't fall off. Or just upgrade the castors for less than £10. The drawers are perfectly fine if you don't abuse them and take care. You won't anything comparable for anywhere near £75.

Im probably being a bit harsh. Was looking at it as a £150 box.
Probably fine for in the garage at that price, better than having tools scattered everywhere.

​you have a pm

very good deal by the looks would love to of had a trade card though

I have this. Had to take first one back as the panel on base was all warped. Ide advise checking it before you leave the store. I had to go to a store 13 miles away to find a replacement. It's fine if you're not using it day to day.

I popped in to Halfords the other night to kill some time while my daughter was at dance class and walked out with this. Had a slight knock on the back panel but doesn't effect anything so didn't bother returning it. Castors are a little poor besides that perfect for the average diy'er, good quality ball bearing draws and looks great in my shed

I bet you didn't walk out with it! I had to use a trolley as it was too heavy to walk to the car

I bought this for £60 5 years ago when it was on hot deals .

It's a great price especially on trade. The wheels don't roll well but you could upgrade them later otherwise it's great.

Edit: just bought another to keep organised.
