Snap-on Tools Company Redefines Premium Tool Storage With New 'Extended Cab System' Rolling Units
KRL722 Roll Cab the Newest Addition to Extended Cab System Units, Redesigned Top Drawers Hold Twice as Many Tools Compared to Previous Models KENOSHA, Wis., June 1, 2004 - Snap-on Tools Company has rolled out a new line of "Extended Cab System" enhanced rolling cabinets, redefining what it means for automotive technicians and aficionados to have premium quality tool storage units for efficient organization and maximum storage options. The new models offer redesigned top drawers that are wider and deeper than previous models, effectively doubling the capacity of the units' top sections. The new series comprises five different units that offer users a bevy of storage sizes and spacing options so tool users can conveniently manage their tools and select the unit that specifically suits their needs. For example, the latest unit in the line - the KRL722 Roll Cab - offers 24-inch depth to provide convenience for purchasers needing the same Snap-on® quality to fit a tighter space in the garage, as well as lighter and easier mobility during transport. In addition to two 50-inch-wide top drawers - perfect for holding taller tool sets - Snap-on Tools has added an inch of depth to each, increasing them to five-inch and three-inch depths, compared to the standard four-inch and two-inch top drawer depths.

In fact, the top two drawers of the Extended Cab System rolling cabinets provide up to 10,000 cubic inches of storage in the cabinets' most accessible space. Automotive technicians and aficionados can store more of their often-used tools within easy reach, saving time and effort on the job. The new five-inch-deep extra wide drawer provides ideal space for storing deep sockets, plastic boxes, large power tools and long handled tools. The three-inch-deep extra wide drawer is well suited for storing torque wrenches, pry bars and power tools.
