[Home Depot] Rigid K-45 Drain Auger $256 (YMMV)

I was at the home Depot on Cyrville rd. this morning and found the Rigid K-45 drain auger on clearance for 256.00 (Reg 569.00) The cheapest other HD price I'd seen was 369.00. The box by the tag had been opened.... looked more like used then returned however there was another up on the shelf that appeared to have been opened but never been used.
I never even asked the gentleman but he offered to knock it down to 200.00 while he grabbed it from the shelf.

Pretty sure drain augers are final sale I believe, so possibly opened in store. Well, in theory at least.

I believe you're right.

No return on toilets as well.

Good reviews for this one.

Just be aware it is designed for smaller drains like sinks.

Gave you an upvote for a well posted deal. Location, pricing etc.

So many ppl post clearance deals and they don't post a location where they found it.

Not likely. I've tried many times to price match at HD in BC based on sale or receipt screenshots posted on RFD from Ontario. Always been told they can't price match, just cause sales and prices are completely different in East vs West. Similar to how Costco has different weekly sales for Western Canada vs Eastern Canada.

Just curios why a drain auger would cost 600 and considered hot at 300?

Considering I only paid 200 for an almost 600 dollar tool makes it a pretty decent score in my opinion. There cheaper and or inferior tools out there that would cost the same or more than I paid for the the Ridgid on clearance. They won't last half as long or be a PITA to use.

Don't confuse this with the TTI power tools sold at home depot as Ridgid. These are decent quality made in the USA tools... used by professionals everywhere and sold everywhere. From their drain augers, pipe threaders, and pipe wrenches you can't really ask for better.

For the average home owner it's probably nothing to get excited about but for someone who needs one in their line of work it's an awesome score at that price.

I suspect more of their selection will go on clearance as they appear to be replacing many of them with made in PRC, Milwaukee branded tools at a slightly lower price point...but with much higher profit margins. Anyone remember when they sold Fluke and Ideal in their electrical section?

different use cases.
Don't buy a $200 (or $400 or $600) auger for your home use. Rent one when you need one better than your cheap or manual tool.
Don't use a cheap consumer product if you're a plumber or other professional needing it to be reliable job after job.

Ryobi seems like a much better deal. Especially you can use the battery you already has, so it is cordless.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

As mentionned, Ryobi tools are intended for light home owner usage. Doesn't mean it's not a good tool but it will not give you the same reliability and/or performance. As a professional, Ryobi tools will not make their way into my toolbox. Ridgid plumbing products on the other hand are top quality and the industry standard.
