    I don't own one of those, but I do own an angle grinder from there. The grinding disc that came with it disintegrated into hundreds of little pieces. And god forbid you use the lock to keep it on, it sticks.

    i am the only employee that will tell customers our electric tools and pneaumatic tools are P.O.S's but nobody listens to you unless you are a manager.

    thats why im outta there thursday, i feel a lil sorry for people that keep buying p.o.s products from there and buy them again because it breaks.

    the only reason i buy there is i learned the system and my item usually breaks before the warranty, if its a higher priced item i get a 2 year plan and then when the end is nearing it gets run over so i get a new one

    Mine was a gift, needless to say, I'd rather just do it by hand. Go China!

    if you need a tool only once, I whole heartedly recommend purchasing from Harbor Freight. I bought 4 hydraulic bottle jacks from them so that I could jack up my house and add some reinforcements to the floor joists. I only needed them for a weekend, so what is the point in buying expensive jacks?

    Boys and Men: Harbor Freight sells virtually ALL CHINESE STUFF. See those bins full of $.99 cent tools in the dealer's customer waiting area? Yep...Harbor Freight! When it comes to tools, you get what you pay for!!!!

    I just bought a 1/2" electrical impact wrench from Harbor Freight with 2 year warranty for $53 lol, cant beat that price with warranty. I also got a $15 spray gun just for priming. I personally love harbor freight. When I have money for expensive tools, I will get them.
