US General Series 2 Tool Cabinets At Harbor Freight

One of the best products that Harbor Freight carries is their US General line of tool cabinets, which combine excellent value and build quality. This trend continues with the US general Series 2 cabinets that are replacing the previous line. Several of the new cabinets come in red, blue, or black.

My thoughts: you won’t find many people saying bad things about the US General cabinets at Harbor Freight. With heavy duty ball bearing drawer slides (except for the 16” end locker which doesn’t have any drawers), a very nice powder coat finish, and heavy duty casters, they combine very good build quality, finish and value. They make an excellent option for anyone looking for a great storage solution for anyone on a budget. I also really like the new color options and would really like to see a John Deere green option. Overall these appear to be holding true to the recent trend of new Harbor Freight products bringing great value and build quality to the market.

What are the series 2 benefits?

They have a bit more storage capacity and they now come in 3 colors. Other than that the changes are subtle but they are still very nice.

Are these US made or just the name, these seem like a super value even w/ import tariffs.

I can almost guarantee they are not US made. My guess would be China or Taiwan but I’m not sure. Still excellent build quality though.

I was in store the other day and double checked, they are made in China.

These are 22″ deep instead of 18″ and made of heavier gauge steel to specifically dodge the tariffs. The plastic drawer stops are still the weakest point.
