I saw that Sears is selling a reconditioned Dewalt 745 for 278. I could get a new one for 300. When I see “reconditioned”, I see “used”. With only a 22 dollar discount I’d rather get a new one. How do you guys feel about reconditioned power tools?

I know that a lot of times the recon tools are just new tools that got returned, sometimes un-opened, or had damaged packaging. I have gotten some good deals on these and been satisfied. But a discount of less than 10% would not inspire me too much.

That’s not much of a discount. That being said, some of my favorite tools are good deals I got on recon tools: Bosch 12v, Ridgid lunchbox planer ($100 off).
