"Its a fairly sturdy, well built bench. The pegboard backing is great for hanging wrenches, plastic bags, etc. I have mine in my mancave, and its uses are infinite."

Gorilla Workbench OK basic workbench

"Putting this workbench together took about 2 1/2 hours plus the time it took for me to paint the particle board shelves with a decent gray industrial paint. This seems needed to protect the material from moisture. It was hard to get a good paint coverage at the ends of the particle board as it was so porous. Not a big deal though. Bench is generally sturdy but you need to be sure you use a mallet to get the pieces to fit securely by tapping the pieces into the locked position. No bolts to keep things securely attached together, all slide-eyelock to fit. This bench is not for very heavy duty equipment or work pieces. The plastic edge protectors that are supposed to fit on the exposed sharp edges of the bench corners do not fit well and pop off even when bent into shape properly.
All in all, a decent way to organize my garage. Needs a built-in work light and outlet strip to be complete. Should include a basic pegboard set or options to buy one. If there were a butcher block upgrade or a better shelf surface available I would have chosen it. Not bad overall though for the price."

Gorilla Rack

"Great tool bench from gardening and for puttering around the garage.
Could be better if it had wheels. Once you put it together, it is difficult to move.
If you have a perminent spot, it works.
I have had mine for 14 years.
Would like to know where i can get wheel attachment?

Best if used with other Gorilla products

"I purchased this bench because a) I needed one and b) the space it was going into already contained several rows of Gorilla Rack shelving.
The bench was joined at one end to a row of the Gorilla shelving using the supplied joining pins. The other end was fastened to a wall stud using a stub 2x4, as was the middle-back of the top shelf. The bottom shelf was left out so I could put a stool or large roll-around tools underneath it. Securing the ends of the bench and top shelf this way made it acceptably solid, a personal requirement for any work bench. (Note: this was a California location, so the securing also helped with earthquake preparedness.)
The product works well when used in this manner. However, I would not recommend it as a stand-alone unit, nor would it be my choice for a "go-to" bench. It isn't professional/industrial quality, but this particular line of Gorilla Rack products wasn't intended to be. These are light-duty products that go up/take down easily, and look decent when completed. They are made more solid by joining to other Gorilla products or secured as described above. Keep the shelving/bench loads within defined limits, and you'll be pleased. If you need more from a bench, consider other alternatives."
