Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Tool Storage Reviews

Storing and organizing tools well maximizes jobsite productivity. You can’t deny it. Our tool storage reviews focus on job site storage products including tool chests, tool bags, backpacks, and more. New products like the Klein Tradesman Pro Organizer backpack and Milwaukee Jobsite Backpack help tradesmen easily get tool to and from the work site. Other products like the Milwaukee 60-inch Mobile Workstation help you organize in the shop or garage. Tool Storage Reviews for the Shop or Jobsite For years, Pros brought tool bags and hard cases to the jobsite. At home, storage consisted of steel cabinets and other chests, drawers, and workbenches. Our recent tool storage reviews, however, are revealing a new generation of solutions. These products present better jobsite durability, better ergonomics, and higher value for professional tradesman or contractors. Also, nearly all new workbenches and tool chests use sturdier steel and better casters. Drawers open more smoothly with soft close features and/or improved bearings. Job site storage is certainly on the uptick.

Klein Tradesman Pro Camo Backpack

Klein Tradesman Pro Camo Backpack

I have high hopes for the Klein Tradesman Pro Camo Backpack. After all, what’s just as fun as getting new tools? Well, getting tools that organize and carry your other tools, of course. There’s not a Pro out there who doesn’t suffer through the (often self-inflicted) frustration of leaving an important tool at the shop, […]

Husky Tool Box and Work Bench Review

Husky 52-inch Tool Chest and Work Bench Review

I liked my old Husky tool chest. It had nice secure-latch drawers that kept them closed. It was black, so it didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Those Husky tool boxes were priced competitively and had some features that made them a pretty good value. I also loved the 46″ Husky workbench and continue using it even today. Where they may have been […]

Sonic Tools S10 toolbox truck

Sonic Tools S10 Toolbox Review

The toolbox. Is there a more centric piece to any garage, shop, or shed? I think not. Of course, just mentioning a toolbox can be a very subjective topic. This one term can be defined by many things. It might be the small sheet-metal box that your grandfather gave you containing a hammer, pliers, and […]
