Husky 432-Piece Mechanics Tool Set Review | Model # H432MTS

Husky Mechanics Tools

The Husky 432-piece 1/4 in, 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. drive mechanics tool set is the largest tools set in the Husky line.  With 187 different standard and deep sockets, 39 combination wrenches, 14 ratcheting wrenches, and 42 bit sockets in includes tools we need, not a large group of small filler tools.

We decided to move forward with this tool set from The Home Depot due to the guaranteed forever warranty.  If we break a tool, we can walk into The Home Depot and have it replaced.  This is similar to the warranty we used to get with other tools until the stores that handled the product all closed in our area.  Our Home Depot is a very busy store and we do not feel it will close anytime soon.

If you are considering this kit, please watch our video as we walk through the tools a bit more in depth.  Also, one would want to consider a way to organize the massive amount of sockets and wrenches.

Tool Set Features

  • 72-tooth ratchets and ratcheting wrenches
  • Quick-release button allows sockets and drive tools to be easily removed from the ratchet
  • Flex-head ratchets pivot up to 180⁰
  • Full polished chrome
  • Tools are forged from chromium-vanadium (Cr-V) steel
  • Sockets and wrenches feature chamfered lead-ins
  • Sockets and wrenches are designed with off corner loading
  • Wrenches feature a 12-point box-end design and 15° offset
  • Bit sockets attached to 3/8 in. drive tools providing a longer handle and more leverage than standard hex keys or screwdrivers
  • Large, hard-stamped size markings
  • Hex keys, screwdriver, and nut driver bits are formed from heat-treated S2 tool steel for added strength and wear protection
  • Husky mechanics hand tools are guaranteed forever, return tot he store if broke for replacement

Overall

Our experience with these tools has been excellent.  We have yet to use the guarantee, but we have been promised by the people in our local Home Depot tool area that they will take care of us if any of the tools would fail.  The one set of items that we shy away from in this kit is the wobble extensions.  If that is due to a lack of experience with them or a lack of need since we have other tools that work in those situations.  The wobble extension would work well in a situation where you need a small relief when turning the ratchet but do not have room for a universal joint.   The wobble in the universal gives an odd feeling probably due to the lack of use in our case.

Otherwise, the tools, including the ratchets, sockets, combination wrenches, ratchet wrenches, and Allen wrenches are all excellent.  We enjoy using them all and believe that other prosumers or DIY people would really like this affordable kit that is full of good tools.  Below are the contents and model numbers of the kit we reviewed.
