More new tools to my collection:)

Recommended Posts

I love good deals. but being the top 10 people at a doorbuster sale would be my first. My buddy talked me to waking up at 4am and wait on the line to get in the store at 6am for the annual big blow out sale in my local contactor store called HPM here on the big island Hawaii. It's pretty much the bigger tools sale you can find for the best deal. Here are what I got:)

post-28745-0-85155600-1400227702_thumb.j and a tough system cart is on my way.

The dewalt sale rep. pretty much talked me into giving me a free tough system cart if I buy 2 set of bare tools with my other purchase. I was only planning spending no more than 300bucks. Became 1 $275 plus another $383 translation. But the dewalt sale rep. gave me 17x$10 special coupons with 1 free 3.0ah battery and USB power source and the $170 special coupon covering the tough system cart and the set drill bit set for free. I spent only about $420 on all those dewalt tools with a free cart. The Bosch rep sold me on their 3 speed ec brushless impact driver, The Bosch sale rep. gave me a addionational $25off plus 3 extra 2.0ah silm packs on top the deal, totals 5x 2.0ah silm packs and extra $25off come out for $225. I love big tools sale like this one on my island

Thanks guys. Indeed, I'm a very happy man even I spend quite a bit too much over my budget. But im all set for the next 10years for what I need on tool wise, if they dont break on me after warranty passed! Not everybody has a super sweet deal like I did. Most of the super speacial they had were only 10 or 15 available with extra $10bucks off for door buster deals and 1 free battery on power tools or free accessoriesor on selected while supplies last. Kind of like a black friday sale on tools. Then the rest were like 10%off on some tools and Tools accessoriesors. I meant I kinda got lucky on my deal with the dewalt sale rep. It was only 2 of them on the site. I bought 2 small tough box for $60bucks. It was a great deal $20off from original store price. They only had 7 tough system carts available and it was a $50 off special for the cart when buying 2 small cases and 1 med size with 1 XL to get the $50 off for the cart. I was almost bugging him out to give me the total of 17x $10 special coupon. I think he only had 30 total. By then after he gave me the 17 he has 3 left;) he told my buddy, Man, your friend is good, real good! There were 4 main sections of special sale rep. tables. Milwaukee, didnt has much deal going on. Beside free $20bucks worth of accessories on selected tools or a free hand tool purchase something I wasnt interested in. Hitachi has no one there, beside my buddy got 8x $10coupons from the sale rep. buying the not sure 6 or 7gallons air compressor set with 2 finish nail guns and a free a 25ft hose for $290 after his $80 coupons he got. He was showing off his coupen to me, so I went to dewalt and worked them;) Bosch killed it. Before the store open, a sale rep. Passed on a $25off couple to the first 25people waiting on line and a free battery on all new BC brushless powertools. That is why I got that 3speed impact and 2 extra battery pack on top the 3 battery that came with the deal. But I might return it tho. I don't quite like the 1/2" socket head design that makes my socket stuck and find it hard to remove it. Could be just me dont know how tho.

Thanks man. Winter in Hawaii usually are pretty warm on the island I live on (Kona, west side of the Big Island), I live in town, but it can get chilly at night up on the mountain. If we want to experience a cold Christmas, we take a 50miles drive from town plus another 10,15mile to up to go visit the summit of a extinct volcano call Mauna kea to play with snow;) (Mauna Kea is one of the only places in the world where you can drive from sea level to 14,000 feet in about 2 hours) me and my wife like to do that at least once a year just for the fun of it;)

So I returned the new Bosch 18v brushless 3speed impact driver set after all. I really don't get impress by it compare with my dewalts.. But it does feel geart balance and light weight and I don't like the L box at all. Funny things is they refunded me not only what I paid for ($224.99 plus 4.17% hi sale tax) but with the $25 coupon price and they didn't even ask for the 3 extra battery packs back. which I got paid $25 just to try it and 3 free bosch 18v battery packs to keep, What a deal!

Thanks Yimmiyo but I wouldn't have any use for them as I don't have the bosch stuff.

Oic. Not a problem. For some reason I assume you might have a use for them. Since I remember you did a review on the Bosch drill or impact driver couple months ago. Anyway. its all g. Just a thought:)
