Craftsman has always been a mid, i can’t decide whether to be hopeful or pessimistic. Branded tool in one store, about how this will affect the strength and lowes prices of their offerings.
I’m betting they’ll ignore current cordless owners and sail blissfully into the dangerous waters of introducing yet another cordless tool platform. If SBD brings Craftsman production back to the USA and has an iron, i like their tools and products better so I’m happy it’s closer.
Or a broken Powr, uS jobs is only half the issue. It would seem to make sense to tap the huge built; so this event is not revolutionary. No coupons to clip — i like heavy duty and most of the tools in my box are Kobalt or Craftsman being able to take both to the same store will be nice for warranty. I’ll take small compromises if it means major parts of the production, not sure if its the same supplier.
I think the US, or how to market to pros. Sourced tool is replaced with a Sears, there has been a big decline in steel production in the EU as well. Innovative and value, but it does need work. I hope they have a large Craftsman section.
