No plastic drawers, but aluminium is about halve the weight of steel, and inverse in price. It will save 20-30 pounds on three drawers. BTW: if you start racking from the bottom, you don't need extra bracing in the back, because the drawers rest on each other.
So this put even more load on the lower drawers.

One frame rested on the one below it is very different from the weight causing a torque on the front frame/rack screws.

But they are still only supported in the front, so some of the weight of the upper drawers is added to the lower ones.
