The top lid design provides enough clearance to allow a DEWALT 20 Volt Drill to stand with the lid closed. Knockouts in the back of the top lid allow power cords to run inside for battery charging, with the lid closed and locked.

The Roller Cabinet features 12,896 cubic inches of storage space. An extra deep 12” bottom drawer offers additional storage with 200 pound capacity.

The 36” 6-Drawer Top Chest retails for $249.99 and the 36” 5-Drawer Roller Cabinet retails for $349.99 in June 2014 at Home Depot and Independent Retailers.
