I was at the brand new Lowes (our first and only) the other day and they too did not have any Delta tools. Lots of Porter’s and the guy told me they were not going to carry a lot of the Hitachi tools either (some were clearanced priced (you might want to check out if looking)? I do not buy tools from Lowe’s or any of the other box stores (but I always look) unless it is an emergency and I need a small tool quick. Being in business and having accounts enables me to make better deals (we buy alot of things in bulk also)...although your $100.00 deal would be nigh impossible to match or beat. Good luck on your new acquisition….It should last a goodly amount of time….I would not expect the 20years though as I am not so optimistic about these lesser quality controls and engineering used now by Delta due to the pressure to reduce prices and the use of untrained low price overseas (not to condemn any particular country) labor.
