For instance, you might have noticed that it’s still October, and this is an official Home Depot Black Friday sales flyer. I downloaded their app for an “exclusive sneak peek,” took some screenshots, processed them, and here we are.
Thank you to Aaron for the heads-up!

HOT Milwaukee Black Friday 2020 Cordless Power Tool Deals & MORE!!
The Ryobi deals are mostly terrible or just regular price. The only really good deal is the 10 inch chainsaw which I would highly recommend. It doesn’t look like much, but I’ve chopped up all but the biggest trunk of a half dozen or so trees with mine and its never given me any issues.
The only thing I see I wanted is the Kreg Rip-cut which I ordered already.
I agree with you concerning the ryobi deals. I’ll probably pick up the chainsaw based on your recommendation.
I have the 12” brushless version and it’s been great. I bought in on sale with a 4.0 battery, but I get good enough run time with 3.0 that I have as well. It’s worked really nicely for storm cleanup and I’ve cut through some logs that maxed it out lengthwise with no issues.
And another vote for the chain saw. Bought this one for my wife last year. She uses it for yard work, where my big Stihl saw is overkill. She loves it. About the only negative is the manual oiler.
I’ll toss in another vote for the chainsaw. It’s a really handy device for small to mid scale work around my property.
I have a feeling all around this holiday shopping season is going to be dismal for consumers getting deals and companies getting profits because of Covid19.
I’m guessing lack of deals is the companies either not being able to offer the deals because of cut backs / supply chain issues etc or precaution that the consumer money isn’t going to be there to buy it.
Realistically it’s alright though, I’m sure there will still be deals for what they are just not block busters like there have been in the past.
I wouldn’t recommend the kreg rip cut, use a lot of their products, and this one isn’t great.
Very nice! Thanks for posting. I’ll add one item I didn’t see in the ad — Ridgid AC9946 miter saw stand is currently $99. If only I had the space.
Is this a good one? I want to upgrade from my Harbor Freight one with the fold down legs.
yes 100% this is one of those tools where Ridgid punches above its weight class. This is also a great deal on it.
It’s up to $129 now, which puts it in the good but not jump out of bed and drive across town good category. Still a no brainer if you need one.
Dang, that is disappointing. Well, I can afford to be patient and keep watching. Thanks for the info.
The DeWalt “Buy One of These Kits, Get a Free Select Power Tool” includes the new brushless 6 1/2″ circular saw (DCS565) everyone has been waiting for. I held off on buying hoping there would be a deal coming up on it.
If you do the battery kit, it’s $199 for a 6.0Ah, 4.0Ah, charger, bag, and the DCS565.
Yes, great deal. I’m just deciding between the new circ saw or the jigsaw.
You can do both, just need to do two separate transactions. You can always return one of the battery kits later for around $100. That would mean you got two tools and a really good battery kit for under $300. Just look at both receipts, the price of the battery kit on the circ saw receipt should be more, since the tool is cheaper so you want to return that one.
Or, if you don’t need batteries, buy the $399 4-tool Atomic kit, get the jig saw and circ saw for “free”. Later return the Atomic kit for around $200, then you got both tools for around $200.
Once all the deals go live, juts play around with them in your cart, it will show the discounted return value and you can figure out what the best method is.
Not bad, considering that the saw is $169 for the bare tool.
Also worth mentioning that the charger that comes in that battery kit is the new DCB1106 6A charger, adding to the overall value of the deal.
I was in the store yesterday and the clamshell package I saw just had the DCB115.
Was pretty disappointed, really. Having a 6AH took it from a good deal to a great deal. Or maybe from great to incredible. Jury is still out.
I may still pick it up, but it’s kinda a bummer.
Yeh, apparently the product description was not correct. I initially reached out to HD and they claimed it was accurate, only to change the product description a couple weeks later. My bad, I’m the goose.
No worries, man. Will probably still pick one up. Maybe more than one, though I may return the batteries on those. Will see.
Not your fault – retailers’ web teams make so very many mistakes this time of year.
In previous years I’d bring up errors and they’d go unfixed for a very long time, things like showing wrong specs, the wrong number of batteries, and even different tools.
Not super impressed. Looks like TTi took a bunch of pricing this year. (Marketing speak for raising prices) SBD isn’t offering sales on what I’m looking for. I’ll wait for to see what Lowes offers.
The Makita saw deals were live for a couple of minutes and I tried to snag one. Not letting that one get away again!
Dewalt Toughsystem 2.0 at $149 is solid, as is the rigid at $98. Disappointed to see the Milwaukee Packout cheaps out with the third box.
I would agree. The crates are nice, but not as much of a value with the trade off of the small box.
The Makita 36V (18V x2) saw deals with 2 extra batteries for $249 look attractive. I may have to see how its priced elsewhere – but I have a Xmas gift recipient in mind .
Thanks for the post. All-in on the annual rayovac hoard. Those $10 Dewalt small parts box looks great also.
I plan on stocking up on those dewalt cases.
$10 for those cases is as cheap as they get. i have 10 and love them.
Those are fantastic. I have eight now and I plan to purchase more. They’re really useful.
I’d advise against that. I’ve had Rayovacs leaking so much in recent years – in their plastic containers, in devices…
If I were to allow myself to more batteries, I’d only buy what I knew I’d use in the next 6 months or so.
My recent Rayovac experience has been the same. I used to buy a bunch during this sale but the ones from the past 2 years have leaked terribly and ruined the things they were in. I thought one year might just be a fluke. Two years in a row meant a new battery brand for me.
All alkaline batteries are prone to leaking and, I agree, the Rayovac alkaline batteries do seem to leak more readily. However, for price / performance, they are an excellent value if you remember to NOT leave batteries in devices. Of course, in many cases that just isn’t practical.
Energizer bought the Rayovac brand in 2019 and was moving some Energizer production to Rayovac facilities in Wisconsin. I don’t know whether this will result in an improvement of Rayovac or a cheapening of Energizer. At least production of the highest volume cells will remain in the USA.
I will continue to use Rayovac in some applications but where I want leak-proof longevity, I will use Energizer lithium AA and AAA cells, along with Panasonic Eneloops rechargeables.
I’ve pretty much only bought Duracell and Sams Club (Members Mark) batteries for the past few years. Both have leaked badly and damaged lots of equipment. I called Duracell and they sent me a check to replace everything that was damaged. I think this is the result of a class action lawsuit against them. Energizer has a stated policy that they will replace anything that gets damaged by their batteries. I think I’m going to switch to buy Energizer since they have the stated policy. I haven’t been able to find a number to call at Sams Club to get them to replace the items damaged.
JR3 Home Performance
Agree on the lithium. For my diagnostic gear I don’t want to deal with ruined equipment so I pay a few dollars more for batteries and then don’t have to worry about pulling the batteries between use
I 100% agree on the AA lithium Energizers. I’ve been using a set of them for ten years now with zero issues in digital cameras, remotes, and flashlights. Yes, costly at first, but no leakages and great battery life. A solid second place for me is the Harbor Freight Ni-MH AA and AAA batteries that also get used and charged in the same charger as my Energizers.
I’d been in research mode on a set of boxes for a bunch of tools that came in bags and many plastic bins of misc stuff. After seeing this about the $10 Dewalt boxes and seeing the reviews – the removable compartments mean you get a lot of configuration options – I swung by HD to pick up 2 at the current normal price as an experiment.
Surprise! They already had them marked down to $9.99. After tinkering with them a bit in the store and liking them, I snagged 4 to bring home and test fit some things. So far they’re great – exactly what I was looking for – and at $10 a piece they are a no-brainer. I’m likely going to pick up another 6-10.
Thanks for the tip!
I was there today and it looks like the Atomic one-handed recip saw and the 4.x circ saw are both going to be $99.
Home Depot finally learned their lesson, when it comes to releasing their BF ad in a timely fashion. How many people had to complain and boycot HD for that to happen??? Hopefully that also means they’re no longer sending out reactive and pre-emptive cease and desist letters around the world, …
I’m not seeing any very special deals or I should say, I am not seeing anything that is on my shopping list on special, or anything that I can’t pass up or would get out of bed for at whatever early hour.
This early sales flyer release is because COVID-19 is flaring up again with new record numbers of cases, and they’re trying to spread high-volume late-November shopping across a longer time span.
One rigid jobsite saw already appears to be cheaper than the one in this ad. Theres a jobsite one for 299 already on sale. I looking for a new saw. But probably something more substantial like a low hp cabinet or one of those “hybrids”
I’d like a hybrid, also. Not sure what to get, though.
I thinking either a Jet or Laguna , idk if the base saw stop cabinet is worth the extra 1000$. Its tough it’s like car shopping so many features and HP ,size differences etc. Mostly just want something easy to keep true and decent quality (flat top, adjustments that don’t break after years of use)
Was. I see they adjusted it higher. Goes to show you they do raise prices sometimes for sales.
Fluctuations are common. They probably also want to ensure that they have enough for holiday shoppers at the advertising pricing.
Is the 2 pack diablo blade (Diablo 7-1/4″ 40T finish saw blade: $15) the same as the following URL? If so – I am seeing it for $9.88
Promo 2-pack: $9.88
Single blade: $14.97
The first is a promo SKU for $9.88. Second, in the flyer, is a single blade SKU that will apparently be buy one get one free.
Models are D0740RVP and D0740R. VP = value pack?
That’s what I kind of figured – thanks for weighing in!
I’m new to DIY project but looking to get more into it as I just bought a house and have a lot of projects coming up. Can someone explain the downside of the 5 and 6 tool set Dewalt deals? I don’t want to waste money on their throw away products but I need a drill and circular saw and this seems like a worthwhile deal
I’m still analyzing it. These aren’t going to be the most premium tools, as you sacrifice a little to get the higher tool count.
This following kit has more premium tools, and *might* go on sale for the holiday season, or at least it did last year. With so many more brushless combo kits on sale, it might not be discounted this season.
Some general advice about previous combo kit deals: https://toolguyd.com/best-dewalt-20v-cordless-power-tool-combo-kit-right-now/ . I say it’s general advice because the combo kits are different, and the ones in this Home Depot Black Friday sales flyer are somewhat better than previous years’ special buy combo kits.
Seasonally-promoted combo kits often go after biggest bang for the buck. This years’ deals offer more bang for similar buck, and it’s going to take more comparisons to make any “gotcha’s” known.
The 6-tool kit comes with the new top of the line FlexVolt Advantage 7 1/4″ circular saw and grinder. That right there makes it a great deal, as they are priced at $199 a piece. The XR 3/8″ impact wrench included also retails for $179-$199. Oddly though, it contains the Atomic compact drill and impact driver rather than their premium counterparts, so that is a bit of a let down. They are still very decent tools in their own regard. You also get a nice wheeled tote to store/transport everything.
The 5-tool contains their old brushed circ saw, which is a little long-in-the-tooth. it also contains the same Atomic drill, impact driver, and OMT as the 6-tool kit.
I’d say go 6-tool kit all the way, it is a better deal and if anything is overkill for DIY. Personally I would maybe sell the Atomic drill and impact driver and upgrade to the premium XR drill/impact driver kit (DCK283D2 – which was recently on sale for $199). But by no means is that necessary, they will likely suit you just fine a new DIY user.
I’m thinking you should go for the $399 kit with 4 atomic tools and then add the brushless circ saw and jigsaw! Those are all really nice tools!
Some of those Milwaukee and Dewalt bit sets are really attractive- that Dewalt bit set seems worth it just for the right angle (which has been on my Amazon list for ages). I could refresh my spade set, too.
Yea I wish I didnt need bits though. If it included hex drill points I’d buy now lol. I know it wouldn’t make sense but I have bits for days
M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4-in-1 Installation 3/8 in. Drill Driver Kit with 4-Tool Heads
Koko The Talking Ape
Question for you all!
I’m shopping for a smallish circular saw. I’ll have to a new battery system, so that doesn’t matter.
So it looks like these two will cost about the same:
– Makita 6 1/2″ brushed, model XSS02Z
– DeWalt 6 1/2″ brushless, model DCS565B (or at least, I think that’s the one in the flyer)
Anybody have experience with either? Any reason I should choose one over the other? The DeWalt is brushless of course, but does it actually perform better than the Makita?
If you’re buying into a new platform, I’d highly recommend looking at other tools you may get down the line. I love my Bosch drill/impact, but I think I would’ve been happier with Dewalt or Milwaukee given their greater offerings and more competitive pricing on other tools.
Koko The Talking Ape
Good thought, but both Makita and DeWalt have what I will need, now or in the future. They are equivalent that way.
Koko The Talking Ape
Weirdly, the DeWalt 565 doesn’t seem to exist on DeWalt’s website. Nobody has reviewed it either. Or even mentioned it. What’s up with that?
It’s been mentioned and reviewed on various social media platforms for a couple weeks now.
I’ll plug Travis here:
The Dewalt has higher RPM, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to better performance.
If you’re buying into a new platform, there’s no harm in being open to both brands and considering either saw as part of larger “package deal” that you might come across as more promos are released.
What else might you be looking to buy, now, soon, or down the road?
Frankly, I don’t think you’d go wrong with either. I haven’t tested the Makita, and personally I’d lean towards the Dewalt out of habitual personal preference.
As for the DCS565 not being listed anywhere, its launch might have been accelerated by the early COVID-19-influenced holiday season improvisations.
There are usually a couple of new surprise SKUs every year.
Marketing, retail merchandising, and PR aren’t always synced with each other, and this saw appearing out of nowhere could also be a consequence and COVID-19-reduced in-person workforces.
I just finished a post about the DCS565, and scheduled it for tomorrow, but I’ll push it up a couple of hours for you.
Koko The Talking Ape
Thanks Stuart! I appreciate it.
The only cordless tools I can see buying down the road are a 18 v drill/driver and OMT, maybe a sander, trim router and pin nailer, and just possibly a band saw. Both lines are pretty well supplied with all of those.
A bigger package deal would be nice, but they cost several hundred dollars and that’s not in the cards for me. Plus they always seem to include a few tools I don’t need.
These particular Black Friday deals look like a way to get a tool I need right away plus some batteries for a good price.
As a dewalt and makita owner , I would get the dewalt because the batteries are on sale more often and are cheaper than makita batteries
I’ve been waiting for the M18 $99 battery deal and that M12 set is also attractive. Good deals on Dewalt batteries as well.
Other than that not much caught my eye.
The Gorilla Ladders work platform for $23.88 is a great price and one of those items I use way more than I ever imagined I would. Super light weight and easy to use. I’ve used it as a seat, step stool, bench, workout “tool”, etc.
joseph w kay
i second that. I have 2 of the older ones I use all the time and I’m seriously considering a 3rd.
I almost bought the M18 multitool for $120 , bare tool. I guess I’ll wait a few days and get it for $100, plus battery and charger.
Thanks for putting this up!
https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIABLO-7-1-4-in-40-Tooth-Finish-Circular-Saw-Blade-Value-Pack-2-Pack-D0740RVP/312091965 seems the Dialbo is even cheaper than that ad right now – $9.88
Hi Tom see my post earlier – looks like I am seeing that as well. Thanks, Poul
I’ve never been in a place financially to afford a large tool chest/box before. Are those husky boxes a good deal or should I look elsewhere?
Just bought one and good quality. I’d venture to say you won’t be dragging it all over the place so they are very well built. Big thing is look at drawer depth, make sure they are what you need.
Husky has tool boxes of different quality tiers. Generally, they’re quite good.
I’ve tested a few over the years, and am currently working with one of their heavy duty units.
Your local store might have several models in stock in case you want to examine their quality.
I started building cabinets long before Kreg was even a glimmer in Craig Sommerfeld’s eye, but I finally have a project where I think pocket holes might be a good option, so I was hoping for a good deal there. The K4 for $80 seems kinda meh, when I can get the whole K4 Master System for $15 more online.
Where are you finding the master system for $95.
Are the Ryobi compact brushless tools new or have I not been paying attention? If they’re not new how long have they been available? That’s something I would have gone nuts for a year or two ago.
Yes – very new – announced a few weeks ago.
I own the new Ryobi HP compact impact driver, drill and impact wrench. Love them all, would highly recommend them.
The 27 gal totes are kind of an unsung hero in my operation. Its big enough that we can put a decent temporary kit together to send with a volunteer crew, fits nicely on a shelf, and they stack well. I bought a bunch when this style showed up a couple years ago. It really seemed like a white label manufacturer sold the same container to a bunch of different brands without telling them about each other, because there was a sudden market glut and they dropped down to like $6 and you couldn’t go into any big box without feeling like their purchasing agent had gotten really overexcited about these things. Good boxes though, and $7 is good for them I will buy some more.
I know, right?
Those things have been everywhere.
I gave in and finally picked up a few for bulky stuff, like drop cloths, etc.
The only downside I found right rightaway is that they’re not waterproof, compared to the traditional tote tub with lid style that had an over-molded snap lid without holes.
I bought a couple over the years, and they are basic-featured, but very durable.
Usually less expensive tote boxes are cheaply made. These lack some bells and whistles I like on more frequently handled tote boxes, but are perfect for longer term storage needs. And when I need to move the boxes, they’re still up to it.
Maybe this is a minor thing but what I notice right away is the price of the Husky 12″ tool bags- $5.97. Those are fantastic small-kit bags and I use them for everything from tools to exercise gear to hunting and shooting stuff. Last year the Black Friday price of those bags was around $10 or $12 and I remember seeing full bins of them in the store because no one was buying them- presumably because everyone knew they would eventually be marked down to $5. Maybe it was different in other areas but it appears to me that HD learned a lesson about how much folks are willing to pay for those tool bags and the timing of their price changes. I’d certainly buy two or three for $6 per bag in November and not feel like I had to wait for the price to come down and risk them being out of stock in January. Good job by HD on that one.
I actually purchased a bunch of these for $6 last year. And you are correct, they are excellent for many different purposes. Plan on getting some more.
We use something similar to those, although from Craftsman, as Dopp (i.e. toiletry) bags when camping or otherwise travelling. Picked up six of those bags years ago for $5 each and they work great for that purpose.
Don’t know about you guys but I’m all in on those scented candles. Campfire or Pineneedles sent!
Can’t have my shop stinking of gasoline and paint fumes. On second thought perhaps an open flame is not the best idea in a shop with paint fumes and gasoline!
On a serious note I’ve kind of given up on finding any DeWalt specialty tools like the grease gun on sale. I guess I should look for just general percentage off coupons.
I do like the DeWalt tough system. I really would like to find some of the half size boxes in the wild. My local Home Depot’s haven’t had any.
Two things; bought that 18’ Gorilla ladder last week for $149.00. It’ll be on sale for $79. You can bet I’ll be taking my receipt back on 11/8 for a refund on the price difference. Second, I’ll be getting that mobile workstation from Huffy for $249. Thats at least $100 less then regular price.
Good deal on the torx drive #9 x 3″ deck screws, Deckmade 10lbs deck screws: $25
I go through a lot of them it seems and half price sounds like a good reason to buy a couple boxes.
Pricing is good now for local pickup.
I just went to pick some up. Grabbed three and at checkout it added a discount and the final price was $52…..
I checked out and went and grabbed three more!! $52 for 30lb of 3″ deck screws?!
Anyone know anything about that handtruck? Is it a decent product?
Stuart, is that 2/4/6AH DeWalt 20V battery pack a good deal for $150? I need to pick up some spares this year.
I don’t know? Let’s see.
2Ah x 2 = $79 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BYKVMSY/?tag=toolguyd-20
2Ah x 2 + 4Ah x 2 = $179 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VZPC78Q/?tag=toolguyd-20
5Ah x 2 = $159 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KQU1ENG/?tag=toolguyd-20
6Ah x 2 = $163 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M751WC3/?tag=toolguyd-20
3Ah compact x 2 = $99 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072K35B3L/?tag=toolguyd-20
4Ah compact x 2 = $129 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0866BYSLM/?tag=toolguyd-20
2x 2Ah, 4Ah, 6Ah = $342, divided by 2 = $171
2x 2Ah, 5Ah, 6Ah = $200
The best deal right now is the 3Ah compact 2-pack for $99, in my opinion. That’s ~$16.5 per amp-hour of charge capacity. The 4Ah compact 2-pack comes out to be $16.1 per amp-hour. You can do better a little better right now. The 5Ah x 2 is $159. That’s $15.9 per amp-hour.
2 + 4 + 6 Ah = 12 Ah total, for $12.42 per amp-hour at $149 for the bundle pack.
Very limited time deals in the past saw 2x 5Ah batteries at $123. That’s $12.3 per amp-hour. The lowest I have ever seen was $100 for a 5Ah battery 2-pack in the first week of December last year.
$12.42 per amp-hour for the 2/4/6Ah 3-battery pack would be “you’re getting a great deal, don’t look back” bargain in my opinion. Could you get even more bang for the buck? Possibly, but it’ll be a very rare occasion.
This seems like a very good deal.
Nope, their early Black Friday deals on Dewalt batteries aren’t any better than the Amazon pricing I listed above.
Based on what I could see, $149 for these batteries are a good buy if the different sizes suit your needs.
The price comparison is approximate, as it’s fairer to compare price-per-amp-hour across similarly styled battery packs, such as 10-cell 3Ah vs 4Ah vs 5Ah, but I figured we could simplify things without affecting the outcome.
If I were looking to buy some more Dewalt cordless power tool batteries, I don’t think I would expect to see any better pricing than this. There’s always a chance, but you have to weigh it against the chance of a deal ending or selling out. Home Depot has a good return policy, and so you might be able to get a price adjustment if this particular set drops in price within the period (90 days?) If you have the item unopened, they might be able to do an in-store return and rebuy.
My store had a couple of these batteries but already sold out.
Here’s the link for anyone wondering what we’re talking about.
Thank you! I’m going to buy them.
Greg, there is another way. Sometimes frowned upon by corporate boot lickers, but buy the DCB246CK kit (6Ah, 4Ah, and charger) for $199, get a free tool. Pick the most expensive tool available, let’s say the $199 jigsaw.
They will both show up in your cart at a discounted price of $109.50. Later, return said tool. You now got 10Ah of juice for $109.50. That’s $10.95/Ah. You can’t beat that. You can even sell the charger on craigslist or fb marketplace for around $20. Now you’re down to $8.95/Ah.
Or if you wanna go real big, head to CPO Outlet, Factory Authorized Outlet, or Max Tool where they have a “buy 2 get 1 free” on select bare tools and batteries. You can buy 2 DCB612 12Ah Flexvolt batteries at $199 each – already a sale price – and get a 2pk of DCB205 5 Ah batteries for “free”. That’s 34Ah of go-go for $398, or $11.71/Ah.
What do you think of the Husky 30 piece ratcheting wrench set for $59.88? I don’t have any other ratcheting wrenches and will never be an everyday user. Thanks.
Link for reference.
That set looks to be a very good value, and Husky tool quality is usually very decent for the price.
The one hesitation I would have is with the non-reversible ratcheting box end. This is a common design, and seems to be very popular, where you flip the wrench to get ratcheting action in the opposite direction. I prefer combination-style wrenches with a reversing lever.
But, to get a set of such wrenches, even without the stubby wrenches, the price point goes a lot higher. You could expect to spend a lot more on separate inch and metric sets.
I think the $60 for this set is a good price. And with Home Depot’s return policy, you could always buy it to see for yourself, and return it if it doesn’t work out well for you.
The zero offset could also come in handy, or you might not like it.
I have non-reversible flex-end ratcheting wrenches, and never minded the design there, and so my hesitation about non-reversing zero-offset wrenches isn’t universal.
In other words, it’s not something I might buy for myself, but it’s a very good value and I can’t offer any good reasons why others shouldn’t buy it as a first ratcheting wrench set.
Husky has 5pc SAE and metric reversible ratcheting wrench sets at $30 each, but I couldn’t say if you would benefit more from the reversible design or having a broader range of sizes as well as some stubby sizes as in the 30pc set.
Thank you. I appreciate your great summary of the benefits and drawbacks to the wrench set.
Man it hurts seeing some of these deals that I could have used a month or two ago. Finally decided I was tired of paying the dealer to do stuff that I knew I could manage after they wanted to charge me over $200 to change 4 spark plugs and grabbed a set of hand tools…. of course now I could have gotten more for my money. At least I didn’t go buying impact wrenches, but those also don’t seem to be going down in price… at least none of the one’s I want from Milwaukee are.
Just remember that you got 2 months of use of your tools. If I can wait on certain things starting in September, I wait for sales. If I can’t wait, I can’t wait. No regrets.
I will repost a Home Depot deal. They have a Dewalt 20v sheet sander with a 3amh battery for $99.00.
So I’ve been buying random sockets and wrenches as needed for years and just dumping them in a bag. But I wanted to treat myself this year to a kit that just contained the works in a mildly organized manner.
Was considering that Husky one:
or this dewalt one:
Anyone have any opinions on those or any other kit? I just do light car work and random jobs around the house so I don’t need anything serious, just looking to not spend more time hunting for the tool than actually using it.
I picked up the red husky tool chest/cabinet combo for 398. While it is still brand new and has no time under it’s belt, so far it has completely changed my garage. Everything is organized and has a home. My work space is actually usable now.
I was not and am not a fan of red boxes, but man this thing is pretty once loaded up.
We shall see how it holds up over the years
