I sold my 72" Extreme because it was just too much box, patiently waited for a deal on a Snap On box on Craigslist. found a desperate seller who couldn't make his house payment with a 99% new KRL722. I offered $2K cash and he took it. $4k less than off the truck. thing is immaculate and fits my new smaller tool collection perfectly. looking for a white KRL756 for the woodshop next.

You got a pretty sick deal! I've got the same box and love it... Just wish would have went bigger.

Lets get some drawer pics!

I wanted a KRL7056 but couldn't find one for under $4k, 6" of depth wasn't worth $2k.

Please forgive my ignorance, but, what makes a toolbox, without tools, worth so much?

Was looking for a similar KRL forever... Ended up going HF and pretty happy for as much as I use it. Still want a teal KRL though :(

What's the difference between the kra's and the krl's?

I picked up a kra top and bottom combo from a friend of mine who was moving cross country for $1500. I forget the numbers, 855 or 856 maybe?

Nice box, that's an awesome price, I looked at Snap On but ended up with a Mac Tech 1080 since I could get a bigger box for the same price with a student discount

40% markup... my box was $6K off the Snap On truck. the dealers prey on young kids who are bad with money. I'd never buy one new. it's worth $2K to me since it's the last toolbox I'll ever buy.

if you use one daily it's worth it with the garbage toolboxes found in retail stores these days.

kid at work has a dark gray Epiq, proud to say he paid $10K for it but didn't disclose the interest rate. a new Snap On box isn't a great investment.

What's the difference between the kra's and the krl's?
sheet metal gauge, casters, drawer configurations, built in corner guards. I like the drawer configuration on the KRA better, one deep narrow drawer instead of two shallow ones, this was too good of a deal to pass up.

Awesome box, I just picked one up myself. Classic 78. KRA line. White w/ black trim. Super sharp. Not sure if I'll keep it or sell it tho.

love the white, planning on a white one for my woodshop to match my white/green Grizzly machines.
