    I saw it on IG. Have to go in tomorrow afternoon for some hole saws, so I'm going to see if my store has it. Online it says "back in stock soon" for my store, we'll see!

    Last line says to keep an eye on e-mail. They've been doing that for years...or am I missing something?

    If you have the HFCoupons app (Android) it shows all the discounts.

    I have been using it for the last couple of years anyway so I don't have to remember to bring the coupons with me.

    The app looks like this now.

    It looks like there still are coupons to be found.

    This is about the lowest price you will find this. It is an excellent flashlight. I have a few of them.

    So, they have gone the gun show route? Jack the prices up and put it on "sale" for the previous price while hoping no one will notice?

    My goto saw has been my Husqvarna 440 18", but I am considering the jump to battery over gas. Most of my other battery tools are Craftsman or Dewalt, but I'm not crazy about their chainsaw options.

    My first thought is why would you need a saw that big for trail use, and if you do why wouldn’t you carry your gas saw?

    An 18" saw isn't that big. But if whatever was blocking me on a trail was so small I didn't need an 18" saw I'd probably just drive over it.

    But I also said I'd use it as a home use saw, and I have old pines and ash that an 18" saw is almost not enough.

    Don't knock it until you try it man, we have filled up numerous truck beds with the Milwaukee saw. It is more than capable for trail duty and you don't have to worry about bringing gas along.

    About a month ago I was chopping down trees with my uncle, I had a stihl with a 20-something" bar and he had a little 14 or 16" bar 40v stihl one. We used the electric one for 5 out of the 6 trees. It was extremely convenient just to pick it up, make your cut, set it down, and not have to deal with the noise and starting of the gas saw. We only had 1 tree that we needed the larger bar for. I was skeptical at first but man, that thing kicked ass.

    We have a battery powered Stihl weed whacker that does a pretty darn good job. I'd consider their saws if they weren't so darn expensive.

    I am tempted by an electric saw but my husky 435 starts right up every time. I think the main advantage would be not having to wear ear protection. I really want to get the harbor freight chain sharpener. Looks like it has great reviews.

    I’ve carried a bow saw for years just in case. Split a piece of garden hose to cover the blade with Velcro straps.
