Over the past year, space has become a huge priority, I can’t express how much I needed this workbench. Husky 46 in. 9-Drawer Mobile Workbench is not going to save my entire shop, but it will give me a ton of space to work with. This is perfect for any workshop or mechanic enthusiasts. It’s a well-built and very solid mobile workbench. 19,650 cubic in of storage, great wood top, 9 –drawers, power strip and drawer liners and heavy-duty casters. The best part, it’s mostly assembled.

There are a lot of things to appreciate here. I do like that it comes with a lock and key system, however, I am not sure I will use the lock much because it’s just not me, but I love the idea. The handle has a fixed location, but you can probably make some modification to relocate it if need be. Unboxing the workbench does require two people to maneuver as it’s pretty heavy for one person. The workbench comes assembled for the most part; so assembly is quite simple. You’ll need to add the casters, handles and the power strip brackets.
To add the casters you’ll need to tilt the workbench over. If you are working alone, I found it easiest to place some of the Styrofoam from the packaging on the floor near the workbench. It’s pretty heavy, about 220 pounds is what you are looking at. I was planning to use leverage to hoist it up, but I felt that I could tilt it over on to the side.
I installed the casters first. After putting them on I flipped it back over on to the casters. With the workbench being so heavy having them will make this so easy to maneuver. Two of the four casters lock, this way the workbench can not wander off as you are working.
I put the handle on, followed by the power cord bracket.
Installed the drawer liners and now I cannot wait to fill it. It’s quite new so I’m not sure how I want to lay it out just yet. I’m sure that will be a future project. For the time being, I’m going to pack whatever fits, and this way I can clear up some room in the shop.
For added security, the workbench comes with a lock system. The locking system uses one lock cam, which locks all drawers at one time.
The two bottom drawers have two sets of drawers slides for heavier items.
- Great quality
- I like that the handle is removable.
- Came with precut drawer liners
- Large work surface
- Onboard power is always a plus
- Can support over 1000 pounds
- I would have liked all 4 wheels to swivel.
- Wish the power cord came out the back instead of the side.
From top to bottom, it’s a great workbench. I like the laminated wood top and think it’s a good contrast. Nine drawers is a lot of space to store things. It’s a great design, I like that the drawer slides are all ball bearing. Only one of my drawers had a bit of tension on it while I pulled it out all the way, but not a big deal these are definitely worth checking out. In fact, I may end up getting another one. If you want to treat yourself or someone to a nice gift this is it 😀! These are available at Home Depot “Click Here” to find out more.
