Mobile storage units
Utility Carts expand on the company’s 440 and 450 series tool storage programs. The heavy-duty model is 46 inches high, 39 inches long and 23 inches wide, and is actually a cart, rolling toolbox and workstation rolled into one. It includes a lift lid with a rigid vinyl top that serves as a 900-square-inch work surface when closed. Oil-filled shocks ensure smooth operation when the lid is being opened and closed to access the tools within. The lid is attached to ball bearing slides, and can slide backward to reveal a two-tier tool storage compartment: a shallow upper shelf for wrenches and other hand tools, and a deep lower shelf for bulkier items. A row of slots on the side and at the rear of the compartment can secure long items including screwdrivers, socket extensions and pry bars. Stanley Proto Industrial Tools
