Unlike a fixed rack, a sliding storage rack allows you to easily pull the grinder out for use and then push it back in for storage. This can be helpful in tight spaces or when you need to access other tools stored with the grinder.

This storage rack is designed to keep angle grinders, drills, and tools neatly stored and easily accessible. It is help save space in workshops and garages.
