    Default Moblie prep station/storage cart for bbq and smoker



    Anyone have any real world experience with the newer HF tool carts?

    I have a couple of the older.style that have been used in the shop for years, but I wouldn't call them quality by any means. And wouldn't buy them again. I am looking to put together a moblie prep station/storage cart for my bbq and smoker. Something to easily hold all the associated gear, utensils, and pots, pans, and racks. Thought that if the newer HF ones were decent, I would purchase one, throw some larger pneumatic casters on it, and then cut some cutting boards to fit the top and possibly the side tray.

    Thoughts?

    HFs are OK for light home use.
    For not much more you can grab a cart from Lowe’s or Home Depot.
    Cornwall is almost as expensive as Snap Off.

    Most carts from the home improvement stores are crap. Have you used the newer HF carts yourself? Been told complete opposite things from people I trust and usually understand what "quality" is.

    A friend of mine has a couple carts from HF. They are definitely worth the money. I was considering something like that to mount a heavy duty table top drill press. But they still are a couple Bill's and I have to many other needs. I just think that something like that you could have all drill related tools store right where you need them.

    We bought this cart from Harbor freight over a year ago for our son who works for Capital Reman (diesel engine rebuild shop). At the time he was the new guy in the tear down department. He has used it full time for over a year and it's held up perfectly. He is now in the building department and is needing more storage but this box has been great so far.
