    Pawn shop tools vs. Harbor Fright???

    I have to drill a dozen 1" holes for some post anchors. Poking around some pawn shops and found a big fucking hammer Bosch drill for $250. (looks a little hammered). I am thinking that a fucking Bauer 10 amp drill will last long enough to do this job and I can toss it in the trash when done. (actually might consider the extended warranty). Bauer $100 before coupon...Damm I hate fucking Chink junk! Ok maybe Kung Pao Chicken is ok.

    Around here used pawn shop tools are priced the same as when new.
    They will not negotiate a lower price.

      All the pawn shops around here want full retail for used stuff, so I'd say if you're considering dropping $250 look new. You could probably get a milwaukee, makita, dewalt for not much more than that (quick lowes/depot search is looking to start about 300ish for rotary/sds). Hell, you could get TWO of the HFs and if it blows up you take it back for a new one.

        They ask full retail, but if you want 2 will usually cut prices in half unless they're obviously unused

          I bought a HF hammer drill for 1 job where I had to move a shower drain in concrete. It did fine, performed flawlessly.

            Same here, our pawn shops suck. A bunch of beat to shit tools for almost full price. Fuck that.

              I have the HF SDS and as long as you use a heavy power cord and don't get it hot, it performs well. I have a 25 ft. 6 gauge extension cord(50 amps) and it runs the tool well. May be overkill, lol.

                HF electrical tools are like 50/50 on their longevity. But theyre so cheap if they break, just go buy another and youll still be under the price for a dewalt/milwakee

                  Don’t have experience with either, but what about just renting one?

                        Tool rental in these parts is piss poor.. Anyway the job is going to be slow with maybe one or two holes per day.

                            I never by stuff from pawn shops or even entertain them by visiting the store. They want full price for used stuff. Much better to buy new online.

                              a couple of years ago I stopped in a pawn shop to look around.

                              I found a nice simple ODB reader for like $30, I wanted a simple one so I negotiated it down to $20, felt pretty good about it.

                              I looked online later to see what I had, $20 brand new all over ebay for it

                              I think that about sums up buying tools at a pawn shop
