Styles available

From the smallest 6-drawer cabinets to the largest 56- and 61-inch trolleys, you’ll find a style to accommodate your tool kits and sets regardless of their size. Some products have industrial quality castors, soft closing drawer mechanisms, and ball bearing slides, which makes them dependable for any workshop.

Other trolley, or tool chest features you might look for include non-slip drawer liners, a strong powder coated finish, and a heavy-duty structure.

You’ll find tool trolleys are available in a number of sizes, including those with up to 12 drawers, and colours, such as black, electric blue and flame orange. When shopping online you can search for a specific colour or material, the features and type of trolley you’re after. You can even shop by brand if you have a preference.

Choosing a trolley

When choosing a trolley, you need to consider the following:

  • The purpose for the troller
  • The supplies being loaded
  • Your own strength and abilities to move it around
  • The work area and layout
  • The environment in which the trolley will be used
  • Dimensions of the load, such as its size, shape, weight, and centre of gravity

For safety’s sake, you should make sure your trolley has the following features:

  • a height-adjustable spring or scissor base
  • handles that protrude from the trolley's body
  • a stacking height restriction
  • a prominent marking indicating the load rating in kilograms
  • castors and wheels that are appropriate for the floor surface
  • Bearings with a low resistance
