As a professional mechanic I found it easy to assemble. Instructions are weak but I have assemble a few different models in the past. There are two problems and both are fixable. First the workbench is too high. If you are working on something and start applying downward force you may hurt yourself. I built a 4" platform to stand on. Using 3/4" plywood, 2x3" studs and topped it off with 1/4" rubber mat. This setup would be the correct high for a workbench and standing on the rubber mat is easy on your feet. The platform is 72 x24". Next this is not the strongest workbench, I purchased the cabinets that go underneath and get bolted to the workbench. Once you start filling these cabinets up the workbench becomes rock solid. I've had transmission,Rear ends and pounded on front end parts. The bench did not budge.
Just bought one of these in black and should have asked a few more questions. I looked at a couple workbenches at the store, one with a metal top and this one. The salesperson said this was a good quality work surface, so I took the plunge. Imagine my surprise when I drilled the mounting holes and saw paper stuck in the drill bit grooves. I was expecting some type of particle board, which is bad enough for a work surface but this is worse yet. They call it MDF, which stands for Medium Density Fiberboard. What kind of junk is this? That's the stuff your kids table tops and toys are made of. Sears just lost a very long time customer.
Well built and strong, looks great in the garage and the storage room in my house.
Good product for the money. Easy to assemble, sturdy, and easy to level.
Attractive sturdy bench. Hard to find that combination for the price.
This was for my second shop. Works well for the price. Good value. Typical Sears
