NEW YORK CITY, NY – JUNE 17, 2010 - Stanley® announced today the introduction of a new Rolling Workshop during its new product luncheon at the Westin New York Hotel. Strategic Business Unit Leader Naama Eylon said, "We are proud to introduce a next generation rolling workshop that delivers portability, clever detachability, and durability for contractors who need to navigate around the jobsite quickly and efficiently."
The new Rolling Workshop (020586R) is a combination of three separate sections that work together to provide one functional storage solution. The bottom bin, which is attached to the chassis, opens up easily to form a workstation with full access to large objects such as power tools or extension cords. The second compartment, a rolling tray (also attached), is a shallow drawer for storing and/or organizing small objects such as hand tools, accessories, and small parts. Both compartments glide open and close smoothly thanks to a ball bearing slide design.
On top is a toolbox that detaches with a simple push of a button to allow contractors to detach the toolbox and go in a flash. The top box also contains a portable tray to help stay organized.
The Stanley® Rolling Workshop also features a telescopic steel handle that extends up for mobility around the jobsite while retracting for stationary use. Its large diameter wheels navigate around the jobsite, over rough terrain, and even up stairs for convenient transportability. Engineers designed this unique work station with durability as a key benefit. That is why it features thick plastic connectors, heavy-duty rust-proof metal latches, and a galvanized metal body for reliable performance and durability during outdoor use.
Not only does this unit provide a convenient storage solution, it also serves as a portable work station. When closed, the top of the lid features a V-groove track that can help secure materials such as lumber, pipe and other materials for quick and easy sawing and/or cutting. It can also double as a convenient work surface when necessary.
Currently available on the market, the new rolling work station has an approximate retail price of $100 and is available at home centers, hardware stores, mass retailers, and online retailers.
