Default Dewalt Cordless Drill Home Depot

Was in Home depot yesterday and walked by the dewalt display, their 18v xpr heavy duty cordless drill which is normally $279 was marked to $99.
the dwalt rep was there, he said they are ending this line for the year and would be bringing in a new line for the summer.

then I was in lowes last night same drill $279.

so if you need a drill go get you one.

They are the xrp, I will take pic if you want. IT says xrp on it and has the metal housing and metal chuck.
The regular 18v, that is not the xrp was $69 but for $30 more I thought the xrp was the best deal,

no problem There were only 2 xrp's left so that might be why they were $99, but even the regular 18v at $69 is a hell of a deal, I might go back and get one. Because they are normally $179.

Here's just a little bit of heads up for you happy shoppers: "end of the line sale" generally means ALL the rejected parts throughout the model's life get used up to make up the last few remaining units and then those units are sold off cheap! It is ALSO quite possible the "end of the line sale models" don't even have that model's parts inside, some or all parts could be wrong/ different! It is ALSO possible that some of the parts that didn't fit during regular production that are being used up will have to be ground/ customized to fit.....but the buyer doesn't know this.

if your home depot doesn't have one goto lowes and ask them to match the price. As of last night lowes didn't have them on sale.

Go buy a craftman 18v for $49 or $59 on sale and when it dies in 5 yrs buy another for the same price. Dewalt makes nice stuff but their cordless drills are way over priced.

You can get 75.00 for the drill, 35 for each battery and about 40.00 for the charger on ebay... I'd buy all they had if i had the money, thats a steal.

I had someone run into HD this morning for me and the $99 specials went as soon as they marked the price down. Thats a good price for a 18v with two batteries.
