Drawer type tool box

This newly developed and unique concept has been tested to carry up to 120kg. Due to the smooth sliding action it’s much easier for the operator to pull out chains using the machine or other equipment manually without having to bend over or strain their body. Because it acts as a slide-out drawer items are more visible so you can check and adjust your toolbox content much easier. A mechanical stopper has been added to prevent it from sliding out of the machine and the box dividers can be adjusted into five different positions.
