Just got an email with Class Action suite notice against HF for selling items listed with fake prices or buy or compare or such in ads and Never really selling at those "before" prices as they said.  OR, something like that!  Sort of a False Advertising thing or such. Needed to have all your receipts to get money back, or least get a $10 gift card if they find your name as a purchaser. HA!  I deleted mine, moving on!

If it's an item that has an owners manual I always staple the receipt to the last page. Now if I could only find that manual.

I buy a fair amount of stuff from HF.  Only ones I have had problems with is their battery powered hand tools.  Batteries are junk.  Wrenches and tools along that line have no problem but I use them as intended and don't abuse them.  No cheater bars, etc.   Can't be to bad or they would not have been in business as long as they have.

I bought a air nailer ( finish / pin / stapler ) from them back in or around 2000. I have to say it is a good nailer and stapler. I bought a 2 year warranty on it and never had to use it. I paid $ 19.99 for it and it was the best money I spent for a tool like that. Bought a auto darkening welding helmet from them in 2002 and it has worked well for us. I have bought a lot of tools from them they all seem to work well. Next purchase (hopefully tomorrow) will be several 6" hand screw wood clamps at $ 2.99 each. Also a digital caliper for $ 19.99. Later this year we are going to buy the electric 1/2" impact wrench. I get a lot of notifications from HF and they always seem to have what they say they have at the listed price.  Thanks for sharing.                                                                                          Roger

Yeah, I got the class action email and deleted it too.

 

Lawyers bottom feeding.  Everything is always on sale at HF and if the only reason you bought is because it's "on sale" then you earned a fleecing.

I check the sale price against market value before buying and get the "super coupons" by email. If I buy at HF I have assumed the risk of foreign products at cut rate prices to bit spend a fortune to get the good tool. If it burns up I shrug it off. I do not buy any trailer parts there though, dont trust anything but solid steel in that department.

 I wonder how good a Class 111 hitch you get for $12.00 but I'm sure there are many out there towing $40,000 boats :smilewink:

I wouldn't trust any of their towing products. A member on here had one of their drop hitches break at the Weld. No one got hurt except for two rebuilt tractors, his trailer & a guard rail.

Roger, I don't know if this will help, but there is a coupon for calipers here, good through  April.  $10.99.

If its a tool that I will use on a lot, I will pay more for a better tool. If its one that I will only use once or twice a year then HF may work for me. Last week while in a tool store in Pigeon Forge, TN (killing time while the wife shopped) I bought some less expensive tools to carry on the tractor, it never has trouble near the shop and if you loose them in the field you don't hunt as long.
