    Not around here cal, only places around me that do that are the high end dealerships, they want each service bay to look identical.

    Just buy the biggest and best box you can and take that and all your hard earned tools to a different shop

    Imagine 10 of those in a shop. I can see why a shop would come up with restrictions.

    When I was putting together the Nissan dealership last year, they did the same thing.
    $750K worth of identical setups for 8 stalls o_O

    I did end up taking in a 26" wide Craftsman this afternoon.
    I filled it out of my truck LOL

    Were one of the few implements that can pull in a 84' wide drill with 900 bushel cart and wing it down, and still have 4 or 5 combines or large 4wd tractors in the north shop. The smaller South shop could handle the 7 buses, usually first stall is where the school buses go, will work on just about anything. Be a nightmare to weave boxes that size around equipment.

    I've got the HF bottom box at work and it's pretty decent. Soon as I get the garage cleaned up a bit I'll have one for home with top box. I've long outgrown my old craftsman box.

    Mine moves nicely. Granted it got a wagon handle and steerable axle under it with disk brakes on the other axle. lol
