      Comments about Tradesman 18V Li-ion Cordless 4-Piece Combo Kit:

      I expected a unit that at least looked reasonably new. The Recip saw which is why I bought it looks like it was used in demolishion and then returned. Not at all happy with the appearance. So far no troubles but ad should have said "used", not reconditioned. Won't buy from you again unless it is a lot better deal than this was.

          Have not used the tools much yet since I just got them but they are in great condition for being remanufactured. This is the first time I bought something online and will be buying more in the future. Thanks for some nice tools at a good price.

                Comments about Tradesman 18V Li-ion Cordless 4-Piece Combo Kit:

                Not as refined as the Hitachi, Makita, or Bosch equivalents, but, not nearly as expensive either. I am a tool junkie and have several different models. I personally like the Hitachi 18v drill and driver because of its power and refinement. But, Porter Cable has done a great job of offering an affordable line of tools with many accessories. The tools look nice and should maintain their appearance integrity over time. If PC made some minor refinements, such as improving the safety locks (not user-friendly) and the battery clasp (feels cheap and makes for a sloppy battery swap), they would have a line that would compete with the Makita line at 1/3 the cost.

                I hope PC sticks with this line because they are so close to having the ultimate cordless toolset. Fix the drill's sudden stop tendency when releasing the trigger and consider upgrading the battery latch to allow a fast battery swap would be a simple improvement that would go a long way.

                Regardless of these minor deficiencies, it is still a very good set for most contractors and homeowners. If the battery life turns out to be good, then it's a great set. Porter Cable deserves credit for offering a near-complete line of accessories. A leaf blower would be another tool to consider in this line, making for a convenient garage sweeper.

                Finally, a two thumbs up for CPO. The reconditioned tools I received were in near-perfect condition. The free shipping offer made me pull the trigger on the deal. I ordered on a Tue afternoon and received the shipment on Thu. And, CPO provided the newer red batteries as opposed to the older gray version that's shown in the picture. It's been one of those "feel good" purchases. I will most definitely buy from CPO again.

                Questions & Answers

                 

                New Vs. Reconditioned

                Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

                • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
                • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
                • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                  New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
