The wait is over, info is surfacing on Milwaukee’s new tool chest.  I have to say I like it better than the DeWALT storage chest that we reviewed. The box looks like a quality product that doesn’t break the bank.  Things we like are the integrated 6 outlet power bar.  The drawers have a soft close, are on ball bearings and have a pre-cut rubber mat.

The back of the chest has a pegboard to hang smaller items on.  Even the bottom box has 6 outlets and a place to hang 2 Milwaukee chargers.  I really can’t speculate anymore until I see it in person, but it looks to be awesome.  A laptop drawer is a nice touch especially for todays mechanics using diagnostic tools.
