In a daring test of strength, Snap-on Tools Company recently mounted a massive Peterbilt dump truck on six tool storage cabinets at Snap-on Tools headquarters in Kenosha, WI, to demonstrate the durability of its storage units. The Snap-on premium KRL extended cab system rolling units were outfitted with steel plates and wheel chocks to stabilize the weight of the Peterbilt dump truck, which was lifted on the Snap-on cabinets with six heavy-duty mobile lifts.

The KRL storage cabinets are built with double-wall construction, which uses two full-sized layers of high-quality "Class 1" heavy-duty steel to provide ultimate strength, durability and finish. Heavy-duty ball bearing drawer slides help drawers open smoothly and interchange easily, and the Snap-on Lock N’ Roll system prevents drawers from drifting open during unit transport and non-slip liners keep stored tools in place.
