When it comes to storage, some tools need to be organized vertically. This is because of at least two reasons — to conserve space and to prevent accidents. Take a long cleaning tool such as a long handled rake, for instance. If it lies on the ground, someone can automatically step on it and hurt himself.
This is where a vertical tool shed comes in. While it can be 6 ft in height just like non-vertical sheds such as a Lifetime 6405, a vertical storage is slimmer by at least one foot.
One of the most popular vertical tool sheds is the GS1250B by Suncast. Here, we provide you with a review and our analysis of the product.
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About the Suncast GS1250B
Here’s what you should know about the Suncast GS1250B.
- This is a 20-cubic ft tool shed.
- It’s made in the USA.
- It weighs 52 pounds and has the following capacity: 27 x 19 x 68 inches (w x d x h).
- When you unbox your package, you should get a floor ramp, a foot lock, built-in supports if you wish to add wood shelves, and a template for pattern.
- This is an empty container, so it does NOT come with shelves only molded supports.
- There are holes for you to use for mounting hooks and hangers.
- This definitely needs a strong, flat supportive bottom. This is to make it more stable and thus prevent it from getting blown over. Plus, it makes sure that all the parts are properly aligned.
- A regular lawn mower does not fit. But according to some buyers, this shed can accommodate a cordless mower such as a WORX WG782 or one that has a retractable handle.
Suncast GS1250B Vertical Tool Shed Review: Consumer Feedback and Rating
– Assembly. In general, this vertical storage shed requires a no-tool assembly, except perhaps a rubber mallet to put things together. But as far as convenience and ease of assembly are concerned, buyers are at opposing end. Some say it’s very easy to assemble, while others maintain that they had difficult putting the pieces together. For instance, a few pieces needed more force to snap them in place, and the door hinges can be tricky, as one consumer has pointed out.
– Design. The weather-resistant resin does not sit well with one buyer, saying that it’s “not as attractive as a wood shed.”
– Space. There’s not a ton of room, what with its 20-cubit ft. capacity. It can hold standard-sized long-handled tools and smaller tools.
There have been complaints about the assembly, but overall, the Suncast GS1250B is a good solution for storing your long-handled tools. Plus, it fits into a tight space. And let’s not forget, since this is an empty container, you can easily customize it by installing hooks and shelves.
