Well....It's actually used & I bought it about 4 years ago from a struggling young mechanic that was eyeballs deep in debt, Was about to get repoed so I paid off the Snap-on man & took possession for a little over $600.

My old Snap-on KRSC31 (The Black 3 drawer roll cart) is falling apart & collapsing on itself from me overloading it for last 15 years. The bottom tray is bent where the casters bolt on & the frame bolt holes are wallered out....I could probably act stupid & get it warrantied, But I'm not about that.

This KRSC46 is comparatively built like a tank! So smooth & square grin Didn't really realize how "grainy" the drawer slides had gotten on the KRSC31 either.

Most of all.....The extra storage space it provides is really nice!!! Traded out A LOT of old worn out tools for newer "low mileage" tools I've collected over the years & added a ton of hand tools that I normally keep in my big Masters Series box at home. I've always dreaded changing & learning a new layout....But it's been a pleasure so far!!

Very nice!!!

I never understood why so many mechanics are a slave to the Snap-on truck (like the guy you got the deal from) making payment after payment on basically overpriced stuff. Sure the hand tools are quality, but so are other brands for less. The other stuff they sell, even the rebranded stuff, is overpriced. I would never pay their price on tool boxes when a HF box is darn near as good for so much less. It just holds tools. With that, I do own a lot of Snap on - but paid as I could cash. I recommend any new mechanic to shop value and get a full set of tools be it Pittsburg, Craftsman or even used Snap on etc and build as they grow...and make more money! Don't finance a whole Snap on set!

Those stubby Cornwell ratchets are nice. Does the lid ever go down once you're set up?

What became of the mechanic you bought it from?

Please, no "who cares" answers.

Nice! It sucks you are in the business so long you have to replace tools because they are work out of just outdated. In the same situation myself at almost 62.

That's a beautiful tool chest Clinebarger.
I'm curious though. What is the box like device that is centered on the underside of the top lid?

Dukie that’s a lid stiffener.

CLine Good looking rig. I’ve wanted about the same box with no lid. What do you suppose that box costs new today? Goes good with the new shop!

It stays open.....The Cornwell Stubby flat ratchets are OK, But the Gearwrench versions are just as good if not better. I have a set of Blue-Point 15° reversible stubbies, But not has handy as flat ratchet combinations!

Last I heard....He was going back to school for a new career path. He could have done alright as a mechanic if he would have gave it more time as he was a pretty smart kid! UTI had him convinced he could graduate & leapfrog his way to a top earner. It doesn't work that way, Especially with custom engine swaps which is what we did at Larry's Speed & Custom. No school can prepare you for that.

It is a stiffener like P10 said.....But it was added so you can mount a Monitor or a Scan Tool to the lid. Has 2 "Nut-serts" that are covered by the Snap-on decal. Pretty sure they discontinued mounting accessories but left the stiffener in place. The lid on my old cart is actually bent from strapping it down during a move.

Yep.....Like the thousands I have in SAE tools that I have stacked in my storage container! Probably need to sell some of it. When a tool gives me 20-30 years of good service, I don't cry Warranty! That crap has effect on prices of premium tools. The exception being Ratchet rebuilds & Bit Drivers....Must have broken hundreds of T40 bits in the last 20 years swapping LSx camshafts.

Thanks P10! A new KRSC46 retails for around $1,900, Can get one for around $1,600 on a cash deal off the truck.
Good used [email protected]$1,200.....They're in high demand!
