Harbor Freight Hercules 20V Cordless Power Tool Bundle Deal

Harbor Freight has an in-store bundle deal promo, where you save $25 when you buy any Hercules cordless power tool, battery, and charger. I don’t know why they can’t also offer this online.

Discussion

I find it interesting to think that, at least spec-wise, this tool would have bested all other 18V and 20V Max-class circular saws on the market just a few years ago.

Brushless tech has gotten far less expensive, with some brands launching entry-level-performing tools with brushless motors, although it doesn’t look like Harbor Freight is doing that here.

It’s good to see Harbor Freight pushing forward with a steady pace of new Hercules cordless power tool launches.

Still, it remains to be seen how well these tools fare against price-competitive brands.
