Same price at B&Q

Good price but having purchased 2 in the past, I cannot recommend it to anyone. It feels cheap and didn't last long before it started to fall apart

Cheap , falls apart if you fill it with heavier tools . It's for DIYers not tradesmen

brilliant find. needed similar for drills. thanks

Any body got any recomendations for something a bit more substantial that will fit in the back of a Hyundai Tucson and be able to transport tools to some flats that I service with no immediate parking

I know, I didn't buy it for trade, it was meant for store tools in the garage. The first one handle broke and the second one latch broke. I might be an unlucky one.

I got the other version which is a bit dearer
amazon.co.uk/Sta…T9H

Fits in my hatchback and is very sturdy (as long as you don't fill it with anvils/vices etc)

The quality of Stanley tools are nothing like what they used to be. You used to be able to rely on their name alone but sadly not anymore.

Yep it's just another brand name bought up and slapped onto cheap stuff. I've got this item - I wouldn't bother taking it anywhere - it's just a convenient storage item and not particularly good at that. £19.99 from Screwfix in 2015.

Energy class a, must be good.

I have this. It's terrific. Not top top end quality, but it's solid enough.

I can also confirm the quality on this is not good. Got one and it didn't last long. The hinges on the top have both gone rendering it useless. Sadly. Better off getting something made of metal, most of this plastic stuff won't last.

shocking reviews on amazon; the latest ones that is

ok just looked at the dates maybe not the latest reviews but the ones showing near the top. haha and it looks like on the right review panel where people have given a higher rating was from the present giver

I've had the smaller version for about 12-15 years at a guess, which was bought from Homebase IIRC for about £15ish and it's still going strong.

Admittedly, it is static and just used to store gear in, but I'm guessing from the comments, newer versions aren't anywhere near as good as the older ones?

Ordered to use for car cleaning stuff (I have a lot), so hopefully it'll be up to that at least.

I've had various tool bags and boxes over 15 years, and I can honestly say that my JCB took stacking system I have that's on wheels is the best by far. It get a hammering on a daily basis!

There are plenty of stacking systms on the market far better quality that Stanley now unfortunately, its a shame they've devalued the Brand

I found a Keter version of this type of set-up in B&Q yesterday , it was way more expensive but 'seemed' from a quick look to have some decent function and I've generally found Keter stuff pretty resilliant, I've had 2-3 large tool boxes from then that have stood the test of time...

Anyway it was nearer £60 I think, but had similar stacking features to the Stanley Fatmax Deep Pro organisers which are actually still decent quality/value !

The Magnussen range in B&Q is also decent quality, although again expensive and itself a copy/brother/sister model to another manufacturer I forget which.
I know...Nice story again..... just trying to provide some options for anyone looking for a better quality box.

It has really bad reviews...

it may be a good deal but that is the worst reviews i have seen on amazon

How quick do we need to be? It's a day later and still the same price.

I have one of these I bought in about 98 and its been superb, I think the quality was first class on these rolling mobile workshops then, and were actually made by Stanley themselves, now though I have seen a mates one only a couple a years old and its cheap plastic and the wheels were thin plastic aswell, not a patch on my Stanley

False assumption. People see the deal and vote. Most will not own the item. They think it's a good deal. Some will read the comments and take notice. Some will purchase. Most will not. Either way, the bulk of voters are not owners of the item at the time of voting.

I bought mine because I thought it was a good deal. I've not voted here because the price is good, the item is bad. That's just the way HUKD works.
