A year ago, I was optimistic, wondering what new tools and changes would come from Harbor Freight after they announced that they would push into the professional cordless power tools market with their Hercules brand.
It has been months since their last Hercules tool release – a 12″ sliding miter saw. I spotted a 12V/20V Max dual-voltage charger, but no 12V Max tools, so perhaps they’re on the way? I reached out to Harbor Freight but have not yet heard back.
That all said, I know some of you shop there regularly. So, here’s a look at this year’s Harbor Freight Black Friday 2018 tool deals sales flyer.
The deals kick off on Friday, November 23rd, 2018.
On the first page, the Franklin 17ft multi-task ladder stands out to me, especially the “OSHA/ANSI Compliant” message. User reviews seem positive. I’m not familiar with the Harbor Freight Franklin brand, but the ladder looks like the HaulMaster that was featured in last year’s Black Friday flyer.
The Pittsburgh jack is the same price as last year. The Predator generator is $30 less than it was last year.
There’s a new Harbor Freight Yukon 46″ mobile storage cabinet with solid wood top, for $200.
Does anyone have any new experiences with the Apache “compare to Pelican” tool cases?
The Earthquake XT 12V cordless ratchet kit seems like the kind of tool that might be popular. I heard good things about that Harbor Freight sub-brand, but nothing much in the past year. Good? Bad? So-so?
Does anything catch your eye from this page?
The Hercules 12″ sliding miter saw, which was $590 “after coupon” when it was released, is now $300.
It also looks like the newest US General ball bearing tool boxes are on sale, for $400 each. You have a choice of black, red, and blue color finish.
I know that some people love Harbor Freight’s furniture dollies, but are they really that good? I can’t even find good caster wheels for that cheap.
Is that another new Harbor Freight cordless power tool brand – “Warrior”?
That Daytona 3 ton Super Duty jack sounds familiar – I believe I’ve seen it recommended before. Thoughts? It looks a lot like the popular Husky 3-ton low profile jack that Home Depot sells. Here’s a first – the Harbor Freight costs more.
For those of you that gear up at Harbor Freight, what do you think about this year’s deals?
