If you couldn't discern what that video was before clicking the play button, you only have yourself to blame.

No offense hard to compare harbor freight to anything snap on, mac or matco. I agree for the money there a great investment well made for the cost. Its similar to yeti coolers which are the industry standard apparently always compare everything to a yeti. Identical to harbor freight they always compare their tools to snap on the industry standard… I mean the industry standard is there for a reason. No offense i love cheap tools i just prefer american products when it comes to tools and tool boxes.

It's not hard to compare them at all, I've owned Snap-on Matco and US general and others. Price aside The Snap-on box is nice but so is the US General box.
I'd pretty much say that in many ways the US general box beats the Matco box head to head. They aren't the cheap china built crap that many people assume they are, They are actually built out of heavy grade material and put together well and will stand up to daily use.
When it comes to Snap-on you're getting nice hand tools but you're also paying a premium price for the service they sell you along with the tool your paying the drivers wages/fuel/insurance for them to bring them to your shop.
Snap on in most cases are a much better tool.... But at 10x the price you're not getting 10x the tool compared to everyone else.

Speaking of nice boxes, Napa just rolled out the RS Pro line from Homak, and they are very reasonable for what you get. The 72"x24" box is $1299.

I have the red 5 drawer 30" US General tool cart from Harbor Freight. The thing is solid. I keep all my basic, use-often tools in it. Screwdrivers, wrenches, sockets, etc. It rolls around easily and I can just wheel it right up next to my vehicle when I'm working on it.
