porter cable tool chest and cabinet tool craze

Over at Lowe’s, they are selling Porter Cable branded Steel tool chests and cabinet’s. Sister company Dewalt has their own Dewalt branded Steel tool boxes and usually gets the spotlight when it comes to new tools and it’s nice to see Porter Cable share some of that attention with their own set of steel tool boxes.

These Porter Cable steel tool boxes measure in at a 41″ width by 39.6″ height for the steel tool chest, and 40″ width by 23.1″ height for the matching steel tool chest. They come in Porter Cable team colors gray with red accents for all you Porter Cable fans.

Pricing is very good at the moment and hold a good value at $249 for each for a total of $498 if you buy both together, which brings them at the same pricing as Milwaukee’s latest 30″ steel tool box cabinet and chest set for the same price of $499. Although Porter Cable’s set doesn’t offer a peg board, it does offer a power strip for the chest only it seems and you get an additional 10-11 inches of width for added tool storage volume.

Although current prices are $249 each, according to the Lowe’s website they are currently on sale and it seems the regular everyday price is $379 for the tool cabinet and $280 for the tool chest making them $659 if bought together at regular price. Also according to Lowe’s, their current pricing at $249 each is good until 7/29/2016.

Where did you find that they are priced at 249 each till July?

I see nothing on Lowe’s website about the rolling chest. And the top one is 279. That’s a let down. I would love this.


Javier is correct. I work in the tool department at Lowe’s and while the website lists them at the regular price, I have little green sales stickers on them listing them at 249.00 each.


Will, what Lowes do you work at? My Lowes is not showing them as on sale.

Will, where are you located? I went to my local Lowe’s and they said it is not on sale. They even called corporate and they said price was $399. If you are close to me I will drive to you and pick up 5 if you got them



Went to Lowe’s in Jacksonville, FL, today and both had sale flyers on them at $249.00/ea.

BUYER BEWARE!!!!! Substandard tool chest. Like the saying goes, “if it sounds too good to be true, follow your gut…….” The 1st box combo was defective so I was sent a 2nd one. The 2nd one had similar issues & broken pop rivets in drawers & missing drawer padding. The bottom drawer does NOT stay shut. I can go on & on. I will never buy this brand again. Customer service also needs development.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
