The Best Labor Day Hardware Sales at Lowe's, Amazon, and Home Depot
Labor Day weekend is a great time for hardware sales, but some retailers will mark down tool kits or specific brands, so it can be hard to figure out the best deals. Here’s a rundown of some of the best savings you’ll find for the holiday weekend. All sales are accurate at the time of writing, but they may change, of course.
If you need a new drill for your Milwaukee battery set, this Milwaukee 18v lithium ion brushless drill is over 50 percent off right now on Amazon. This is only the tool, so it doesn’t come with the battery, but it’s still a good deal at $92.61. If you need batteries though, you’re in luck because Milwaukee Lithium Ion 18v batteries are also on sale for 65 percent off. You can score two for $119.99 on Amazon now.
Ryobi has great sales at Home Depot right now. If you’re looking for a whole set of cordless tools complete with batteries and chargers, Home Depot has a Ryobi 18v set on sale for 34 percent off. This kit comes with a drill, circular saw, battery, charger, and carrying case for $99.00. At $50 off the regular price, this tool set is a good place to start building a kit for your home shop.
If you’re looking to begin or expand a Ryobi lawn tool set, their 18v leaf blower/trimmer set is on sale for $99.00 at Home Depot. The set comes with a battery and charger, making it a good fit if you’re looking to start an outdoor tool kit.
Ace Hardware has some great sales, like this DeWalt 20v trimmer/blower battery operated tool kit with a battery and charger for $50 off. Since a battery and charger can go for around $160, the kit that comes with batteries is a good deal. And if you need a larger cutting tool for brush or tree trimming, this DeWalt 20v ChainSaw is on sale for $30 off. The chainsaw is a tool-only package, so it’s only a good deal if you already own DeWalt 20v batteries and chargers.
For small projects and crafts, Dremel brand 12v battery powered tools are on sale for $20 off at Lowe’s. These tools are designed to work similarly to a corded Dremel, but they’re more portable and more convenient. All of the sets come with their own battery and charger, so it’s a good beginning kit for fine cutting, sanding, and polishing.
Amazon has some deep discounts on Makita battery-powered shop tools. The Makita 18v cordless router is on sale for 46 percent off. This is a tool-only package, so if you don’t already have batteries, this isn’t a great deal at $150. If you need extra batteries and don’t have a charger, Makita 18v batteries are on sale for 63 percent off—$54.99 each on Amazon.
In addition to cordless tools, hand tools are also on sale for Labor Day. You can find a Craftsman 262 piece socket tool set on Amazon for $169. It’s 45 percent off and comes with a tool box. The Craftsman 24 inch level is on sale for $33.99, or 38 percent off, and the Craftsman 25 foot tape measure is 22 percent off, bringing it to $13.99.
If you’ve ever tried your hand at woodworking or set up a home shop in your garage, you know clamps and sawhorses can be the difference between a successful project and a failed attempt. Costs can add up, but there are Labor Day deals on these, too.
At Home Depot, DeWalt 100lbs, six inch quick clamps are 24 percent off, making them $12.97 each. At Lowe’s, Pony brand sawhorses and clamps are $40 off. These sets are designed to support up to 1,200 pounds and are a smart choice for situations where you don’t have a shop table big enough for your project.
