Scores of consumers and much of the retail world spent the last week focused on Target Days, Walmart+ and Amazon Prime Day. But some smaller retailers have smartly chosen to hitch a ride on the buying wave with some impressive deals of their own. If your monolithic retailer of choice ran out of what you wanted and you still have cash to spend, here are three great deals from Lowe’s.
Kobalt, the house brand of Lowe’s North America, launched in 1998 as an answer to rivals Craftsman (Sears) and Husky (The Home Depot). Since that time it has steadily built a loyal following and a reputation for quality and dependability at entry-level prices.
Kobalt 24-Volt Cordless Impact Driver
Engineered for tough jobs, Kobalt’s 24-Volt Max Impact Driver is designed to drive and remove fasteners from wood and metal with ease. Its brushless motor delivers up to 1800 in.-lbs of torque, making it powerful enough for any job you face.
Why We Love It: The driver comes with one lithium-ion 2.0Ah battery, a charger, belt clip, single-ended driver bit, bit holder and soft bag. Plus, all Kobalt tools come with a five-year limited warranty (three years for batteries). Usually retailing for $169, you can pick up this impact driver for $99 (41 percent discount) for a limited time.
We couldn’t choose between Kobalt’s cordless impact driver or drill driver so we’re highlighting both. This one features a built-in LED work light to provide visibility in dimly light spaces. It also delivers 650 in.-lbs of torque and an ergonomic design for comfort and speed on any job. It comes with accessories for added function and convenience, including a belt clip, driver bit holder, auxiliary handle and soft carry bag.
Why We Love It: Two drivers mean two rechargeable 2.0Ah lithium-ion batteries, which means you’ll never need to take unplanned breaks to let your battery recharge. Usually retailing for $159, it’s on sale for $99 (37 percent discount) for a limited time.
When deal season dies down, you’re going to need a place to put all your new treasures. This nine-drawer tool chest is the perfect place to organize and store your tools and hardware. Made from high-grade welded steel, it’s coated with a rust-resistant powder finish. Four casters (two fixed; two swivel) make it easy to maneuver in even the tightest garages or workshops. The total weight capacity of the unit is 1,200 pounds, so no matter how many tools you squeeze in it, this tool chest is sturdy enough to take it all.
Why We Love It: It comes with an integrated power strip with four outlets and two USB ports so your tools and electronics always stay charged. The chest’s solid wood top provides a tough work surface and a classic look. We also love the built-in lock to keep your tools and hardware safe. Usually retailing for $419, this tool chest is $298 (28 percent discount) for a limited time.
