Northern Industrial Tools 3-Shelf, 3-Drawer Work Cart
It fills my need for a Woodturning work shop.
Purchased January 2014, assembled easily and fits the need. One drawer glide (two pieces epoxied) came apart by May but was easy to repair by sanding off original five blobs of epoxy and doing a full length epoxy (5 minute two-part) re coat. I removed the 5" casters and made the cart a stationary base in my craft shop where I work (with midi and maxi lathes Jet 1221-VS and now a General-international 25-200 M1). I fashioned a base board on the cart top to hold the lathe and accessories. Two concrete pavers18" square fit precisely into the bottom tray for anchorage. I am thinking I'll buy a second cart for my workshop at home. I called Northern 9/12/14 to let them know of the glide separation and repair.

Review of 3 drawer work cart
The carts I purchased were easy to assemble and
worked perfect for the area they were assigned to!

Solid Chart, Easy To Assembly
"I bought this Cart for All of the Items I use for Washing, Detailing and Waxing my Vehicles, Towels, Polishing Pads, the Polishing, and all of the other Items needed to Clean, Wash, and Detail Vehicles,
After Removing, and Taking an Inventory of All of the Parts for the Chart, I noticed the Base/Bottom Shelf, has 3-Dents on 2 of the Side of the Shelf, and one of Other Shelf's has a Dent on the Side of it.....
This Chart is of Very Good Quality, and the Assembly of it was Easy, the Only Reason I Do Not give it a 5-Star Rating.....as I Mentioned above, the Damage to the 2-Shelf's.

Great for home use
I bought this cart to work on cars and small equipment at home. It replaced an older flimsier Craftsman that had started to wobble and had only one drawer that developed a slide issue. Installation was a little tedious, but fairly simple.
I use the top as my current project work surface - any bolts or parts I take off or need to put on go on the top. Specialty tools for the current job go here. And other items related to a particular job.
I have the drawers filled with hand tools (sockets, wrenches, pliers, etc) and have no problems with the weight of the tools causing issues, unlike the Craftsman cart I had. With three drawers I can fit a lot more items than I could with my old cart
Would have liked the drawers to be a little deeper, as they are all shallow, and maybe one to be much deeper for bulkier items, but then again you would probably lose the middle shelf, which is nice. I put my cordless impact and bit sets on the middle shelf and have no problems.
The cart rolls well. Love the wheel locks as my driveway is sloped and this is a must have. Price was great. Perfect size for someone who just does things out of their garage and doesn't need locking drawers.

Easy Assembly, Valuable Addition to the shop
My 14-year old son assembled this cart; works perfectly for our needs to move parts and tools to and from the vehicles in our shop.
The 3 drawers are particularly handy for keeping tools protected but within easy reach.

Poor Quality !!!!
This is the cart I purchased for a maintenance man at a small rual hospital. The price was cheaper than any others with the drawers like he requested,
The problem was that once assembeled the cart was warped and doesn't roll very well. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone who actually plans to use it on a daily basis.

3 Drawer Work Cart
The product is good. The assembly is tedious and takes some patients. Everything was packaged well, and all the parts were there. It holds substantial weight and rolls easily. Two of the wheels lock in place which is good for sloped driveways. The finish is quality, I believe it's powder coated grey. The price is excellent for what you get in the end. My only gripe about the product is the drawer stop on one of the drawers don't work as well as they should and cause the drawer to continue out instead of stopping the drawer when it should. it only happened on one side of one drawer.
Ps. If your looking for roller bearing drawer slides, look elsewhere. These drawers are not roller bearing. You will also pay much more for a cart with roller bearing drawers.
Very stable when assembled correctly. I would buy another one.

I bought this cart 9 years ago, used it loaded and built extra shelves off both ends. It was full of heavy tools, huge prybars, sledge hammers, wobble sockets, extra long extensions, everything needed to R&R transmissions everyday. The wheels held up to it rolling across five bays all day long. The best part was the fact that I could magnetize socket holders to it and got the job done faster! Everything I used a lot was in sight right on top. I would recommend it! I have tightened the bolts up every couple years to keep it working, and I still love the fact that it still holds a lot of tools out where you can get to them fast, and put them back fast!

Great little cart
We ordered two of these carts for our automotive refinishing shop and they arrived within a few days. It was very quick and easy to order.
The carts were simple to put together and came out looking like it should in the picture.
They are sturdy and move around quite nicely. The only thing that I would say negatively about these carts is that they aren't industrial stregth, and may not last very long.

Handy Little Cart
This cart is very handy to have in the garage. You can roll it around with ease. It's been a great alternative to pulling around a bulky tool box. Stores lots of tools and/or parts.
Pretty well constructed. Relatively sturdy for the low price. Overall, it's a pretty good cart.
