Bad things happen when you’re elbow deep in a project and don’t have a place to put all the tools and parts you’re using during the job.

Admittedly, we’ve set stuff on air cleaner covers, windshield cowls, radiator supports, fenders, our kids, and the neighbor’s dog, Heck, we even handed a wrench to the mailman once.

The end result is usually a missing part…and maybe a confusing call to the Post Office.

Suffice it to say, having a tool cart nearby comes in really, really handy during a job. Problem is, not all of us have the space to have a rolling tool cart cluttering up our garage in between projects.

That’s why we love, love, love this folding shop cart from Summit Racing.

It’s got a steel frame and features three big shelves made from high-strength plastic to resist dents and corrosion. Better still, the shelves have a lip to keep things from rolling onto the floor, along with integrated parts organizers to keep your small hardware and bits sorted.

Stout locking casters help the cart move, stop, and stay with ease—try that with the dog holding your screwdriver.

It stands just over three feet high, is two feet wide, and is almost 1.5 feet deep, yet folds down to a mere whisker of that, so you can slide it under a workbench or squeeze it between your golf clubs and lawn mower.

All told, this folding work cart is an ingenious solution for the home mechanic who’s short on space—get all the details on the Summit Racing folding shop cart here.
