I find that the Craftman 5-Drawer Workbench Module has made it possible to organize my power tools and my large tools. The workbench is very sturdy and with all of the mistreatment I have done it doesn't get dented and nor does the paint chip. The lock is great to have and works well. The drawers roll out smoothly. There is room to put an additional module or a Craftman 3-Drawer toolbox on top. I highly reccomend purchasing the Craftman 5-Drawer Module for work or at home.
I have several craftsman roll arounds and the steel on THIS ONE is so thin it doesnt compare to my older toolboxes. The quality is getting worse in Sears products. I purchased a 8 ft workbench and had to use a hacksaw to cut a v notch in the 8 ft lower support to fit the 5 drawer module i just added to it. That was a design flaw!
This is a nice addition to my workbench, but is a little flimsy. It was easy to assemble. It took me about 20 minutes.
I have three older (20+ years) Craftsman workbenches and was looking forward to this larger new bench. The assembled unit looks great. Big Craftsman logo and familiar Craftsman red. The frame came in a box marked "Made in USA". It was nice and heavy duty. That is where the positives stop. I opened the drawer boxes that were NOT marked "Made in USA". It reminded me of cheap import tool boxes. Obviously from China. It was so thin some of the pieces were warped just from being so thin. The drawers were flimsy and the rails are no longer built into the drawer. I was hoping the drawer rails would be heaver than the drawer and add a lot of rigidity but alas it they were also thin. You have to screw the rails into the side of the drawers leaving an exposed nut inside the drawer. Possibly a knuckle buster. It assembled easily and is sturdier than I thought it would be. The lower rear back brace must be put on backwards as it is not notched to fit the unit. The drawers slide easily and is study enough to be functional. I'm not sure I would trust the large drawers with a lot of weight though. Knowing this now, I'm not sure I would have purchased it. This is not your Daddies Craftsman workbench. Come on Craftsman, bring up your quality!
The drawers are a good quality overall. They don't all close completely, and some of the metal looks a little warped in certain lighting, but it's still functional and attractive.
can't complain. it was easy to assemble, gave me the storage in needed and looks good!
Excellent compliment to the bench. Every thing fits together like a glove.
I put this together today, and my first impression is that I'm not impressed. I knew going in that these were not heavy duty drawers, but wow.
Before buying I debated buying a Craftsman Bottom Chest and just storing it under the workbench; I wish I had. This has a very cheap and flimsy feel to it.
There's no way I would recommend buying anywhere close to the full listed retail price. Maybe if you find it for 50% off.
I believe it reads each drawer will hold 35lbs, but I'm not comfortable putting more than 10lbs in each drawer. The drawers rub the side despite everything being perfectly lined up and leveled. I have this sitting next to a Craftsman heavy duty bottom chest and let me tell you, the contrast is amazing. It's like parking a Kia next to a Maserati.
The unit did not come with hardware to assemble properly had to buy the carriage bolts and don't have the floor casters to keep it off the floor or level. Unlikely I would ever buy from craftsman again.I called and someone was supposed to remedy this situation but dropped the ball.
