Harbor Freight has come out with a new 34″ “full bank service cart,” although it looks much more like a tool box to me than a cart.
The new US General service cart tool boxes measure 34-1/4″ wide x 23-1/4″ deep x 46-1/2″ tall.
Harbor Freight advertises that these new tool boxes feature the storage capacity of a roller cabinet, but with the mobility of a tool cart.
Compared to a standard single-bay tool box or roller cabinet, these service carts have all swivel wheels and a deep top lid compartment.
The top compartment has a 7″ depth and 90° lid that’s supported with 2 gas struts.
An integrated locking lever within the top compartment secures the drawers for when the tool cart needs to be moved. There’s also a pass-thru grommet so that you can place a power strip in the top compartment with the lid closed.
There are 20 holes for fitting pry bars, screwdrivers, or long extensions.
There are 6 drawers. The top 5 drawers are each 3-3/4″ tall, with 100 lb weight capacity, and the bottom drawer is 6-3/4″ tall with a 200 lb weight capacity thanks to its double set of slides.
The carts have 5-inch soft roll swivel casters, with 2 locking casters, and they can support a total load of up to 1200 lbs.
Each tool box also features corner guards and an ergonomic handle.
I would assume that the locking lever in the top lid is the only option for securing the drawers, with the keyed barrel lock for securing the top lid.
Drawer liners are included. A variety of color-matched accessories are available.
The product images don’t show the handle or drawer locking feature, but you can spot them in the video below.
Harbor Freight covers these US General tool cabinets with a 90-day warranty.

Harbor Freight advertises that their new US General service carts compare to Snap-on’s KRSC326 tool storage carts, which are priced at $1750.
The USA-made Snap-on carts have slightly different measurements – they’re 32-11/16″ wide x 20-1/2″ deep x 46″ tall.
In case you don’t want to watch Harbor Freight’s video, you can look at Snap-on’s product image to see what the US General handle looks like, since this seems to be the model HF’s new tool carts were modeled from.
