Great!!! I was able to take 3 "bags" of tools & parts and now pull as one. Relatively large wheels and sturdy handle are welcome. center box locks to handle giving even more support. Generally well designed and built for the price and makes a good impression. I have used a baggage strap to put yet another bag on top without difficulty. It assembles in a few moments and is sturdy. I would definitely buy it again. It is the best current combination of size, utility and cost I know and can easily fit into any trunk. exceptions.... It is NOT designed to go up steps. If you need a toolbox that MUST be pulled up even a few steps this is not it. The first time I did, I dented the body at the bottom where on the handle side just above the plastic bottom. I found if I have more than just a few steps I disassemble and cary it up. If I pull up a couple steps, I do it VERY CAREFULLY. When stopping and standing it upright, the bottom hits the ground before expected! Therefore even though there are large wheels, it still has less clearance than expected and it is unusual that the bottom is squared off so you have this abrupt on/off the wheels. This does not seem to be a problem as much as it is a surprise. The latches stiff (new), but work well.
I purchased this shed last summer but didn't assemble it until 2015 Labor Day weekend! It was stored on my patio on the shipping pallet, covered tightly tarps. I'm a 5'5" tall, 50ish DIY woman; my strength is ok but I'm height challenged and my "wing-span" is a little short for this type of build,...Despite these short comings, I was able to assemble the shed ALONE up to the front gable section. I took my time and only did a few sections per day. I had some pieces that wouldn't line up with the screw holes but after a few hours in 90+ degree heat, those pieces lined up perfectly. I'm sure the fact that it sat unassembled for over a year through east coast seasons created some warping which may also occur when they're stored in a warehouse prior to purchase, thus maybe the cause for problems others have reported. I built it on a raised 2X6 PT platform secured with lag bolts to 4X4 posts in concrete, covered in 3/4" PT plywood. To assemble the actual shed parts, I recommend using only a screw driver, not the drill/driver combo...too much power will quickly strip the screw holes. Please note, the foundation has to be 100% level, side to side and front to back to have a successful build! As for the doors, one of the last steps in the instructions thoroughly explain how to shim (shims provided) the front to get the doors aligned and it works! With my son's help, the shed is fully assembled and I love it. Take your time, follow the instructions and refer to YouTube videos if you get stuck. Happy building and best of luck to you all!
I just put this together. Tip for you - Take your time and read carefully! I haven't moved all my lawn and garden equipment in yet but it looks like this is going to be a perfect shed for me. The assembly was not too bad and I only had help during a few steps. It was actually a fun project. I had a treated framed base with treated plywood built to put it on. The quality of the shed seems adequate and it is certainly the best looking one on the market. I wish Lifetime would use a different fastener for the roof and wall panels other than a screw. Some sort of twist and lock type. Some of the screws tend to strip which is frustrating.
didn't want to pay for restaurant quality stainless so I opted for this. great product and a great price. medium duty stainless at best but it does the job. not as pictured tho. the picture shows end caps. ends are opened. also do not remember reading these were kd shelves. you need to bolt brackets to shelf. for me that would not have been an issue.
