Stanley FatMax 4-in1 Mobile Work Station for Tools and Parts Review

April 21, 2010

Stanley FatMax 4-in1 Mobile Work Station I’m currently working on a larger industrial wiring project where I have to park approximately 1/2 of a mile away and walk almost another 1/2 of a mile on the project. After doing this for the first week and carrying all of my tools, I decided that I needed a better solution for getting my tools back and forth to the pick up daily.

While looking around I found this larger container which was reasonably priced and I initially thought would work well. It was approximately 54 inches long x 36 inches wide x 24 inches tall and only $60.00. I saw the FatMax tool box there as well, but it was only 17 inches long x 22 inches wide x 29 inches tall and $80.00. Then I got to thinking about it, the larger tool box was one larger compartment while the FatMax has 4 plus the middle section can be further divided into 8 more sections, resulting in better organization. Plus if I got the bigger box, I would just fill it and it would be a challenge getting it in and out of the truck each day.

I’ve been using the FatMax tool box for about 2 months now and I like it overall. One of the best features, in my opinion, is the “V” notch in the top cover. This works well and is very stable to set a piece of conduit in and cut it. One thing that I don’t like about it is the tires. They are plastic. I’m going to upgrade mine to rubber with metal rims and bearings. I think this would be a huge improvement.

The Stanley FatMax tool box features 4 storage solutions in one includes toolbox, part bins, portable tray and over sized lower bin for larger items. Patented tiered cantilever multi-level rolling system allows easy access to all 4 storage areas at the same time. Durable Structural Foam construction, telescopic handle for easy maneuvering, easy latch system includes a quick push to close feature, large front latch that locks the entire unit, Ball bearing slides for smooth operation even under heavy load, V-groove on top of lid holds materials such as lumber and pipes in place for cutting. Extra large, heavy duty metal latches with pad lockable eye lets.

I was concerned about the tool box being plastic, but it is holding up just fine on a construction site; including the plastic wheels. They just sound cheap rolling across the concrete floor.

Overall, I recommend this tool box. In the mornings, I throw on my tool bags, grab my benders in one hand and pull the tool box with the other hand. After walking 1/2 to one mile to my work station, I don’t feel like I need a break before beginning work and I’m able to carry a large selections of tools allowing me to complete any task thrown at me.

    Wow, I wasn’t even aware of this one by Stanley. All we deal with is tool parts all day, and this would be awesome to be able to roll around with. We might actually go ahead and purchase one. Thanks for the review!
