Road calls made easy with Snap-on road chests

Snap-on's portable heavy-duty road chests are designed to make service calls less time consuming and more productive. The chests are supported by anti-vibration parts and a strong bottom panel with two sets of support channels. Portability is increased thanks to advanced handle systems, as well as two-way forklift channels and top and bottom strap points.

Snap-on said its portable heavy-duty road chests (KRA6200, KRA6210) provide more versatility and efficiency, making service calls less time consuming and a lot more productive.

“We often hear from our heavy duty customers about the challenges they face when having to repair a truck that has broken down on the side of the road,” said Jay Serpe, product manager for Snap-on. “One of their biggest concerns is how to transport the necessary tools to do the job right. By incorporating their feedback into our design, Snap-on has developed road chests that are second-to-none when it comes to versatility and portability. These durable, high quality road chests are sure to make a difference when it comes to performing challenging road-side repairs.”

The features and benefits of the Snap-on KRA6200 road chest (with ISO-frame) and the KRA6210 road chest (with side handles) are:

More Versatile
• ISO-frame on KRA6200 can be removed and used with standard side handles for in-shop use on a roll cab.
• KRA6210 has two reinforced handles on either side for easier lifting and an additional transport point.
