Milwaukee 46 Inch Steel Storage Chest and Cabinet Preview
Milwaukee 46 Inch Steel Storage Chest and Cabinet Offers Function, Durability, and Organization
Milwaukee Tool announced their new tool storage solution: the Milwaukee 46 Inch Steel Storage Chest and Cabinet. The compete tool storage unit (Milwaukee 48-22-8500) is made up of two smaller units. The base is created from Milwaukee’s 46″ 8-Drawer Rolling Steel Storage Cabinet (Milwaukee 48-22-8520). 5″ industrial casters provide mobility for this 221 pound, 8 drawer base cabinet.
The top features Milwaukee’s 46″ 8-Drawer Steel Storage Chest (Milwaukee 48-22-8510). The top shelf is hidden by a locking pneumatic lid. Opened, it reveals a surface that allows for stand up tool storage and a metal peg board to help with organization. On the back half, you’ve got 10-1/2″ of vertical clearance with the lid closed. A second locking drawer offers protection for your valuables when your attention is diverted elsewhere. One drawer features a slide out work surface perfect for holding and storing a laptop or documents.
As a complete solution, the combined 16 drawers provide 1800 pounds of storage capacity. 14 drawers are set on 100 pound soft close slides and 2 support up to 200 pounds each. Each component of the system also has a built in 6 plug power source, giving you a total of 12 outlets to work from.
“The new Milwaukee 46 Inch Steel Storage Chest and Cabinet immediately became the storage solution we had to get our hands on. With delivery to stores in May, this is going to be the Father’s Day Gift that pros will have on their radar.”
-Kenny Koehler, Pro Tool Reviews Managing Editor
As expected, Milwaukee has put more than just innovative features into their latest storage solution. It’s also built to be jobsite durable.
“Many storage solutions in this category do not have the durability that professionals expect, and do not provide users with the versatility they desire. Thoughtfully designed from the ground up, Milwaukee’s new storage solution features a reinforced angle iron frame and 5” industrial casters for ultimate durability, and is fully loaded with innovative features to maximize productivity.”
– Bobby Shaw, Milwaukee Tool Director of Product Marketing
