Deals We Love: Craftsman Outdoor Equipment
Two seasonally appropriate deals from Ace Hardware.
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Hanukkah. Christmas. We are smack-dab in the middle of gift-giving season, which means retailers are fighting for your attention and your hard-earned dollars. This week on Deals We Love, we’re highlighting two high-quality products from Ace Hardware that are definitely worth your time.
Craftsman Six-Gallon Pancake Portable Air Compressor
If you’ve been putting off indoor framing or remodeling, now’s the time to get that project back on track. Craftsman’s six-gallon, 150 PSI pancake compressor is powerful enough to support multiple trim finishing nailers, small framing/roofing jobs and all general inflation, blowing and smaller SCFM (standard cubic feet per minute) air tools.
It has two couplers to support two users. Plus, its steel body and reinforced shroud and console offer strength and added protection for internal components. The compressor’s 120V motor starts easily in cold weather or with an extension cord.
Why We Love It: One of the most underrated pieces of outdoor power equipment in any garage, a week with an air compressor will have you wondering why you ever tried to live without one. At just 30 pounds, this compressor is really portable and small enough to store indoors or out. Original retail price is $150 but you can get it for $120 (a 20 percent discount) for a limited time.
Craftsman 24 in. 208cc Electric Start Snow Blower
Craftsman’s 24-in. 208cc electric start two-stage snow blower eliminates the hassle and inefficiency of trying to pull-start a cold engine. The snow blower features strong serrated steel augers that cut and clear snow quickly. The self-propelled drive features six forward and two reverse speeds, which means you stay in control in all weather. A 180-degree chute rotation puts the snow where you want it, while the 24-in. clearing width and 21-in. intake height let you tackle the toughest of snowstorms.
Why We Love It: We love it any time a product is on sale at the exact moment readers need it. We said that about leaf blowers in the fall and we’re saying it again now. The original retail price was $850, but you can get it for $799 (a six percent discount) for a limited time.
