All the models are good in their own capacity and produce products for its consumers. Let’s go further in detail below regarding the features of each model with the comparison of US General and Husky tool chests as follows.

 US General Vs Husky Tool Chest Comparison

US General is involved in manufacturing tool chest by using steel material. Steel material used is good as they are strong and run long but can rust faster. Similarly Husky also uses steel raw material to manufacture the tool chest. Both use roller cabinets which is easy to move around the workplace. Steel material enhances the product longevity perhaps by distancing the product from water and other oxidants. So it’s a tie here between both the products.

US General vs Husky

The storage capacity of US general is around 21,500 cu.in whereas Husky is around 42,930 cu.in. This shows that Husky is better in comparison to US General in terms of storage capacity. More the storage space, more no of tools can be stored for better usage of the tool chest. Generally consumers prefer high storage space depending on their needs and the tool chest that they prefer to use for. Hence Husky wins here hands down.

US General is available with 11 drawers where the consumers can fit the tools. Husky has a mammoth 23 drawers to place the tools. Husky has more no of drawers and hence has larger capacity to store the tools. Husky proves to be the real winner here in terms of the no of drawers available to store the tools.

Size of US general tool chest is 56 inch and also Husky tool chest is of 56 inch. Both tool boxes have the same size, but Husky also has more no of drawers to store the tools. Both being 56 inch in size still Husky is fitted with more no of drawers. Husky wins here as well.

Weight of the tool box plays a vital role in choosing a tool chest as it needs to be moved along the workplace. Here US general’s weight of the tool chest is 383 lbs whereas Husky’s tool box weight is 542 lbs. Hence Husky tool chest is quite heavy to move it around the workplace whereas US General is well placed here.

Price of US General tool box is comparatively cheaper than Husky tool chest. This is because Husky has more no of drawers and more storage compared to US General tool box. So again it boils down to consumer’s usage and the amount of money they can shell out to purchase a tool box. US General wins in terms of pricing.

Conclusion:

I would conclude by saying that after comparing the two tool boxes, my suggestion would be to go for Husky tool box because of higher capacity to store the tools with more no of drawers it has to offer.

 US General Vs Craftsman Tool Chest Comparison                  

 Craftsman tool boxes are of 52 inch in size compared to US General’s 56 inch tool box. There is a slight difference in the size of the tool box which means US General can store more tools compared to Craftsman tool box. Hence my take is that US General wins here hands down.

US-General-vs-Craftsman

Craftsman has provided the tool chest with 10 drawers. That’s a good number of drawers available to store the tools. But here is the catch US General has 11 drawers and hence more storage capacity. So again US general is ahead in terms of the drawers available to store the tools and arrange them.

Storage capacity of US General tool chest is around 21,500 cu.in and Craftsman is around 18,500 cu.in. Obviously consumers would prefer the tool chest which holds better storage in an organized way. More the space available more tools can be placed in a good and clean manner. US General wins here the race in terms of storage capacity as well.

Both tool chests are made of stainless steel material along with rolling cabinets. This is the advantage of rolling cabinets where it could be moved around and also easy to carry to any place where it is required. It’s a tie between the two tool boxes.

Craftsman tool chest weights around 221lbs and US General weights around 383lbs. Weight of the tool chest is an important consideration in selecting the correct tool box for their usage. Hence Craftsman wins here in terms of weight of the tool chest.

Craftsman tool chest is better priced but with less storage capacity and drawers whereas US General tool chest is highly priced because of higher storage capacity and drawers available to store the tools. Here Craftsman wins here but again it depends on the user’s needs to purchase the tool boxes.

Conclusion:

Based on the above comparison one can conclude that US General wins here in all parameters except for pricing and weight of the tool box. Generally would recommend that tool boxes with higher capacity is preferred by most buyers and hence should go for US General Tool chest is my strong opinion.

US General Vs Homak Tool Chest Comparison                             

Homak and US General tool chest both employ and use steel raw material to build their tool chests. As already explained steel raw material is very sturdy and enhances the product lifetime except they need to be taken care of rustiness of the product. Both are rolling cabinet tool chests which is an advantage in both the products. Hence it’s a tie between both the tool chests in terms of material used.

US General vs Homak

Weight of both the tool chests is also same 383lbs. Again not much is there to be written on the weight of the tool chest. Weight is important to be considered in purchasing the perfect tool chest. As both are having similar weight it’s a tie again between both the tool boxes.

Storage capacity wise Homak is better placed as it stores around 28,580 cu.in of materials when compared to US General which stores around 21,500 cu.in of materials. So this concludes that Homak is the real winner here in terms of storage capacity.

Homak is provided with 8 drawers along with 2 compartment drawers whereas US General is provided with 11 drawers. Not much of a difference in terms of no of drawers as the storage capacity is high of Homak tool chest compared to US General Tool box. Hence Homak is winner here again

Size wise both are locked at 56 inch of tool chest. Both carry the same size of tool chest with rolling cabinets. Hence it’s a tie between the Tool boxes compared.

In terms of pricing US General is priced lesser when compared to Homak tool chest as it has higher capacity to store the tools. Pricing of a product depends on many factors and should be considered when buying the tool chest. Here would say US General wins here but with less storage capacity.

Conclusion:

After a thorough comparison of US General and Homak products, I would recommend to go for Homak as it has higher capacity to store the tools. Always the storage is important as in future users may add more tool to their armory that is required to be carried to their work place. Hence Homak is the go to product.

Final Verdict:

After comparing the tool boxes, I would conclude by saying that Husky is the recommended tool chest to purchase even though it comes with a huge price tag. One should not neglect the amount of storage space and the drawers it provides to the consumers of the product. Yes there may be few buyers who would suggest that they may not require such a huge storage can opt for craftsman and US General tool chests tool. Homak is the second best tool box that I would recommend if the buyer thinks price is a big factor without compromising on the storage part. All in all Husky wins here without an iota of a question.
