I have the 'original' brushless version of this. It doesn't have insane power to plunge and really likes batteries but the convenience of cordless is hard to beat. I have used it on pressure treated 2x6 and rounded the edges with a 1/2 round bit, it worked well but I could only do 3-400 feet before killing a 4ah batt.

Showing as the normal $129 to me. I thought I'd get a nice price match refund but alas.

Edit: Ok I was finally able to find a store that was only an extra hour away from me that had it for $99 and I chatted with customer service. Despite it being 2 months since I ordered it, (the day it became available online) CS had absolutely no problem refunding me the price difference. I've always had great experiences with their customer service.

It probably helps that I led off with, if I was unable to get a price match that's understandable but I'd have to order a new one and return the old one which is just inconvenient for everybody.

For anyone still wanting one for $99 just keep changing your store until you find one that has it and that will trigger the cheaper online price. I didn't have any luck with with any of the zip codes posted below that I tried.

For those wondering, not a single store that I tried in Nashville or Memphis was eligible. Most in Little Rock were not either. It seems like less busy stores are the ones eligible but I'm not sure. I found a couple outside of Little Rock (Cabot, for example) but I finally referenced Jackson TN in my customer chat if that even mattered to them.

Man I have to stay away from this place. Just picked up the octane jigsaw and 3+6ah battery/charger combo and still trying to decide if I want to return the battery set to keep a $70~ jigsaw.

Must resist buying stuff. I just wish I bought the cast iron table saw when it used to cost $200 less. Mad

I would keep them. The batteries are always good to have and they come with lifetime warranty.

Great tool, good price. Someone call me when the Dewalt 20v cordless router goes on sale, please? I'm heavily vested in that system already.
