  • home depot to shut down the hilti tool stores

    for those of you that have a hilti tool store inside your home depot tool department, get ready for big discounts as they are closing and being replaced by a larger milwaukee tool department. from what i was told this will affect 200 locations.

    right now my home depot is offering 25% off on a large portion of their line and accessories. plus on larger purchases the manager will throw in another 10%. whatever doesn't sell in the next couple weeks will stay at the store and probably get additional discounts.

    what amazes me is that milwaukee already has a large presence there and at my store the full time rep also does the ridgid and ryobi tools. but it's the milwaukee truck he drives and the milwaukee red he wears.

    don't look for milwaukee anytime soon at lowes as they have an exclusive with home depot. pretty sure that applies to ridgid and ryobi too.

    not sure what's going to happen to the full time hilti store reps, i doubt they can absorb them into the field.

    I don't think we have Hilti in any of the three Hds near me (25 mile radius).
    I just met with the Hilti major account rep, one of their product managers,
    and one of their directors who was here from Germany this week.

    they were doing a dmeo of their new rebar scanner. That thing is awesome,
    but so is the price. Still, if you're drilling and core boring all day, you can't
    justify not having one. One oops and it will have paid for itself.

    Places I work you better not be drilling through any rebar or conduit or
    anything else that's in the concrete ot here will be hell to pay.

    The Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan Radar Detection System is a real game changer.

        Never been in one here that sold anything Hilti. Not even accessories. No impact for myself.

              27k is still cheaper than x-rays and the hassle of clearing out all the people from the area for the duration of the x-ray exposures.

              it will sell to large coring companies and they will make it back with big charges to boot.

              i'll see if my local hd has it in stock for 30% off

                I've been in a HD twice in the last 5 years. They do have things that Lowes and even the supply houses don't carry here like 3/8 cable...maybe I'll check it out again.
