Quick access to your tools is a key to becoming more efficient. Most tool storage boxes today are 10-ton behemoths, hence even though they’re on wheels doesn’t mean it’s moving – easily. The new Gearwrench mobile work station bridges the gap between your massive tool array and the workspace where you need it. This new workstation sits atop 6″ x 2″ rubber casters, includes more than 19,000 cubic inches of storage, and has a load rate of 2,000 lbs.

10-Second Summary

  • 11 Drawers
  • 2,000 lb. capacity
  • 6″ Casters
  • Customizable top drawer with partitions
  • Integrated charging strip with 6-outlets and 2 USB ports
  • Locking Cabinet on one end with pegboard and shelf on the other 

“One of the things you notice in working with maintenance professionals is that often times, their boxes are being used in a way that’s far from what they were initially designed for,” said Paul Steinweg, Director of Marketing. “Most toolboxes that roll around a plant get retrofitted in a less than optimal manner with ad hoc wheels and other modifications to suit one-off needs, so we wanted to create something that anticipated and met those needs in advance. I don’t think anyone else has anything like it out there.”

Partitioned Top Drawer

Partitioned Top Drawer

The 20-Guage steel frame and drawers of the Gearwrench mobile work station provide the strength to handle the load. Each drawer includes ball-bearing slides which will handle up to a 100-lb load. EVA drawer liners provide a waterproof and slip-resistant surface for each drawer. Eleven drawers provide more than 19,000 cubic inches of storage, and the deep drawers allow 20% more storage capacity.

Safety latches on each drawer automatically lock when it closes. To open the drawer, users reach under the handle, the fingertips naturally find the channel underneath, and pulling the channel forward releases the safety latch. This locking mechanism keeps the drawers from flying open when your coworker is pushing you around the shop.

Differing from other service carts and workstations on the market today, the Gearwrench mobile work station includes customizable partitions in the top drawer. This allows users to custom-fit their tools and pieces, if even for just that job. Partitions can easily be moved for different jobs/projects. In addition, a 6mm-thick EVA top mat provides a non-slip surface for working on parts – or to sit your sandwich…when you’re working through lunch. The worktop surface also allows for mounting a vice – not recommended for sandwiches.

Pegboard and Shelf

One end of the Gearwrench mobile work station has a locking cabinet for storing more beloved items. This storage area also includes one shelf. A second shelf just above the cabinet provides a great place for chargers and your phone. This is a built-in charging station with 6 outlets and 2 USB ports.

On the opposite end of the Gearwrench mobile work station is a pegboard area for hanging wrenches, pliers, and any other easy to reach tools. Another shelf just below the pegboard provides storage for aerosol cans and spray-bottles.

Our Take

We like the customization with this Gearwrench mobile work station. Each fitter, maintenance engineer, and mechanic has a unique way of working with their tools, so why not give them options. The lockable cabinet and pegboard on either end of the cart provide great additional space for a variety of tools and supplies. Also, the integrated power strip is almost a necessity in our world today, so users can charge their cordless tools. The jury is still out on the price of this Gearwrench mobile work station, but these should start rolling into the supply houses soon. In the mean time, we’ll try to get one in for a full review. Be sure to keep up with us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
