Updated on January 9, 2015

Save 40% to 60% reconditioned power tools

Rare thinking people such as yourself already know, a craftsman’s reputation is built on the quality of their tools, The best and highest quality power hand tools always seam to cost a small fortune; say the proverbial king’s ransom. There is however, a little known secret to saving lots of money on the highest quality power tools available on the market today. Reconditioned power tools and pressure washers will save you 40% to 65% off the normal sale price of your favorite power tools and pressure washers at amazon.

The value in buying reconditioned

I personally discovered the value of reconditioned power tools at least 25 years ago. While working as a tool and equipment rental store manager, who catered to homeowners and professional contractors alike. As I am sure you already know, rental tools and equipment take a lot of abuse, from both, the homeowner that doesn’t know any better, and the so called, professional contractors that couldn’t care less, or worse, the hired help that plays the if it doesn’t work, I can set on my back-side, and get paid doing nothing, game.

As a small mom and pop rental store, we were always looking for the best ways we could provide our customers, the safest, high-quality, reasonably priced tools available. Our dear friends, which just happened to be our loyal customers, deserved nothing but, the best tools at the best prices. Through the years working with our tool sales representatives, we formed a good working relationship that allowed us to do exactly that. Supply our customers and friends, with the highest quality tools at the best prices possible.

Reconditioned tools are as good as new tools

One hot and humid July afternoon, our tool sales representative John “the Hammer", stopped by on his summer sales call, with a great new product line he was excited about, a line of reconditioned power tools.

Hammer had been our rental store’s tool and equipment go to guy for several years, his expertise in the field was legendary, earning our respect and our business. On this hot summer afternoon, Hammer had a new product line he was excited about and convinced it was going to be the next best and greatest thing; and for that reason, we simply could not afford to do without.

Hammer was excited about, what a great deal reconditioned tools were, for our small mom and pop operation; the prices themselves would make it possible for us to compete with the big national chain stores. I must admit, in the beginning, I did not think much of Hammer’s idea, us handling something like, reconditioned power tools.

What are Factory Reconditioned Power Tools

Q, Hammer I got-a-ask you, what is the deal with these factory reconditioned power tools you are excited about anyway? I have always been of the opinion that, reconditioned tools or factory-reconditioned tools what ever you call them are nothing more than, factory rejects, discards, or something even worse.

A, They are simply, tools that were factory over runs, store returns or unclaimed freight.

Q, What makes them, certified factory reconditioned tools?

A, I am glad you asked, factory-trained technicians inspect the tools. The technicians test these tools to insure they meet the manufactures new tool requirements, specifications and quality control guidelines.

Q, What about a parts and labor warranty, do the tools carry any kind of warranty?

A, Great question, yes reconditioned tools have the same warranty as a new tool has when sold to the original purchaser.

Q, What is the condition of the reconditioned tools, do they have scratches and dings on them?

A, Many of the tools are like brand new, without any marks on them whatsoever $6, while a few tools will have scratches or other cosmetic blemishes. Purely cosmetic, they do not have any effect on the over all operation of the tool.

Q, What types of tools are available?

A, There are many different power tools available:

Miter Saws

Compound Miter Saws

Cordless drills

Cordless impact drivers

Gas Powered Pressure Washers

Electric pressure washers

Wood routers

Belt sanders

Chain saws

Weed eaters

Leaf blowers

just to name a few. Quantities are limited however; it is a first come first serve opportunity.

Through the years I have use reconditioned tools with great success, in fact I seek them out when ever possible. If you to want to save money on a great high quality tool make your next tool purchase a reconditioned tool, you will be glad you did.
