Are you certain that the battery and charger qualify for the LSA? I thought they had to be part of a kit which typically means they all come in the same box. Since these are a "buy this, get that" deal, I'm not so sure.

Yes, I am 110% sure. The items can be LSA if:
- Tool -> Most of them are LSA but some are 3 years (like the gaz blower)
- Batteries -> If a charger is present, LSA, else 3 years
- Chargers -> If a battery is present, LSA, else 3 years.

Since the starter kit is charger + battery, it's good for LSA.

The circular saw is honestly outstanding. While it does has heft, as the other user noted, I was very surprised at how light it actually is without batteries. Even with a 4ah, it's still lighter than my old skil saw.

If you ever have to do any sort of demolition, the reciprocating saw will make your life incredibly easy. Need to read down a deck? No problem. Cut down small trees? Easy. Buzz through some firewood? Why not? I get a surprising amount of use out of mine. And, if you get into making stuff with pallet Wood, that tool will save you hours of hard work.

If you see yourself doing lots of renno, the multi tool is worth considering. I love cutting drywall with them, and might pick one up just for that. I've seen a cutter that's perfectly sized to cut out single gang recepticals in one shot.

Along the circular saw, I've baugh both the reciprocating saw and the multi-tool. I realy don't need both so I will return one after more taught. Buy now, think later ;)

thanks

P-S, made a mail order no problem battery was included for free for each tool.

I have a new born so I'm a little uneasy of going into stores. Better safe than sorry. I already seem to have more 2ah batteries than needed. Is there any demand for reselling them on kijiji? What do they typical sell for (for any of you that have had success) debating if it's worth ordering anything online.

I seem to fetch $45 for the battery and about $35 to $45 for the charger or $80 for both. Always take me 2-3 months to sell. Charger is fast but the battery, nobody want that.

Interesting thank you.

I feel like just getting 35 for the charger is already pretty good. I have a pile of those too.

Great post OP.

Was hoping they might have the octane hammerdrill on but doesn't seem to be offered as a bare tool.

Hi, stupid questions maybe but does the LSA apply to the battery included? Can a 2.0 AH battery run long enough for me to do lug nuts on 3 cars?

There's another thread here from Princess Auto with a 9.99 adaptor kit that include a 3/8" to 1/2".

Please note: This kit is for everyday home use. At this price you don't get Impact-rated adaptors.

It has been a while that it is no longer offered in Canada - only the US... they don't promote much the Octane line which I think doesn't help their sales but whatever.

The LSA apply to the battery kit, yes. The 2AH battery should do 2 cars for sure, 3 I don't know.

The HD web show the tool is LSA, But the starter kit listed 3 years on the web. I read here long ago if its promotion and you get the combo together then the battery is LSA as well. But now sure whether it still applies now a day.

See attached. The 3 years warranty is IF you don't register.

Also, see the attached booklet on HD's website: https://images.homedepot.ca/s7viewers/h ... ty-pdf.pdf

Gonna grab this return the other one I guess? I feel bad about returning something I used a couple times though but I guess the serial# is on the receipt so I can't just return the new one with the old receipt, right? Maybe I can go in-store and tell them I'm returning it 'cause the battery deal and just re-buy the same one? I mean it's totally like-new and all but he's like my buddy now, don't want to trade him for another one :lol:

Also no hammer drill in this? Disappointing since the R8611506 is badass hammer drill but looks like they don't even sell this in Canada anyway :(

They have the sheet sander in this but no orbit sander, kinda sucks too. Should I get the sheet sander?

The jobsite radio, not that I'd buy it anyway, but I wanna say this was $80 on sale before, without any return trick, no? The new charging radio seems cool but wow--way too expensive even with the return trick. How good is that thing to warrant that kind of price? I mean it better be good, right?
just found the hammer drill and impact driver set are $248 where are a good price imo.

The same combo also listed for $299 at the same time, dont know why.

The combo at $248 has 1x 4AH and 1x 2AH. The one at $299 has 2x 4AH. Also, the one at $299 was cheaper not too long ago on sale and it even had a free octane tool included (saw, recip or jigsaw).
