Hollon Safe Fire & Burglary Safe Oyster Series FB-685C
The safe just arrived. Perfect condition, Fed Ex delivery was prompt. Was delivered on a heavy straight truck. The safe is 1100 pounds and heavy duty, well built and extremely solid. Best safe I’ve ever owned. I will definitely buy another Hollon safe! Best on the market as far as I can tell and I’ve owned several, broken into several and know safes pretty well. This TL safe is overbuilt! My purchase experience was exceptional from MachineShark. Simple, smooth ordering, great selection and stellar customer service! Again, be warned, this safe is HEAVY for its size and is what you want in a good safe.
While it is a heavy safe, the walls feel a little thinner than they should, almost like I could cut through the top with a portable circular saw in 10 minutes. You can tell that almost half of the safes total weight is in the door. (The door and locking bolts are robust smooth and satisfying)
Though the advertisement says it doesn not come with mounting hardware it did have four concrete anchors, However their quality is so cheap I really wouldnt use them for anything!
The single piece of felt as "dressing" feels a little insulting but its better than nothing? Luckily I could tell from photos the interior would be bare bones and I prepared accordingly.
The biggest Plus and dissapointment is the Seargeant and Greenleaf Lock thats on the door, which is very smooth and satisfying to use! However despite all the packing protection my lock still arrived severely scratched. (Its Not a display piece so no huge whoop but its still an expensive product youd expect to arrive in New condition).
All in all Im satisfied with this purchase as it works for what i need it for. I think however if i had to do it again, knowing what i know now and given the price point, I could do a little more reasearch, possibly spend a tiny bit more and get something more impressive.
I am very pleased with the safe I also want to thank Dana at Machine Shark for great customer service and for answering all my concerns and questions. I will definitely recommend them to anyone that may be looking for a safe.
