Wonder how Kobalt handles returned items? like cpooutlets or the Amazon Warehouse type stuff. You might find one that's missing original packaging or missing its manual or w'ever for a reduced price,Now that I've got the 80V Kobalt 22" Snow Thrower w/ 5Ah Battery & charger, I'm thinking of picking up a blower so my battery gets year round usage.
My most powerful cordless blower I have now is a Greenworks 40V 24322 (185 MPH / 340 CFM) and would like a more powerful brushless Jet Blower so getting an 80V Kobalt makes sense.
Can get the old model KHB 40B (125 MPH / 500 CFM) on ebay brand new for $94.99
Can get the current model (140 MPH / 630 CFM) at Lowes w/ 2.5Ah Bat & Compact Charger for $198.50 (w/tax) thru 5/29.
$103.51 more sounds like a good deal for a battery & 2nd charger.
Best price I see on e-bay currently for a NEW 2.5 Ah battery is $84.99 and NEW Chargers can be had for $30 (either std. or compact).
So about $10 less getting brand new and more powerful with warranty from Lowes vs. claimed as new or open box from 3 different ebay sellers and likely no warranty.
Don't really "need" a 2nd battery & charger though, so I just got to decide if I want to spend the extra $104.
CPO does not handle Kobalt and I've never seen a similar site that does; also no one on ebay selling Kobalt appears to be a CPO type place either ... have no clue what they do with their returns.Wonder how Kobalt handles returned items? like cpooutlets or the Amazon Warehouse type stuff.
