While the barrel is attractive it does have drawbacks. First and foremost, there is no way to access the main body for cleaning and draining 100 percent of the water accumulated. Second problem is the top inset collects debris and stagnant water.
The item came very well packed and it showed no scratches or visible dents. Although this product is quite heavy and it does not look flimsy, this is not a heavy-duty tool chest (you must pay over $$$ for one of those). This product is for DIYers who have light to medium-weight tools (I am into electronics and ham radio) and who want to have their tools organized in one place. This product was very easy to assemble with the readily available instructions booklet. The drawers work fine and the casters look and feel sturdy. It even came with locking bars for the upper drawers and hooks to hang tools on the side of the bottom section. The bottom door opens upward and slides into the unit, which saves a lot of room around the unit when open. The only problem I found was that one of the sockets that hold the stems of the casters was deformed. However, a little prying with a screwdriver set things back to normal. In any event, because of height limitations, I decided to place the bottom part without casters under my workbench and the upper part on the right side of the workbench top. If I find smaller diameter casters, I might put it back on casters. Perhaps, adding rubber feet to insert in the caster sockets would not be a bad idea.
