Nice item to win.

Global materials leaves a lot open but at least they are doing some assembly in the US.

Just bought a new John Deere X-570 tractor and my snow blower attachment has "Made in India" cast on the auger gearbox housing. Deere is thinking globally it seems.

I own a small foundry in Michigan and our product line is mostly aircraft and defense work. You would be surprised the level of certifications we have to submit to prove everything was made in the USA.

I got a good look at the batteries, they said they were made in the small town of Korea...never heard of that, must be on the west coast. Trigger on the flashlight has already quit working, that was the reason I quit buying Dewalt tools long ago. Never had an issue with triggers on any of my Makita tools.

Love Makita, but the dollar to yen rate makes them expensive.

Hope you have great luck with them!

I have had poor results with Dewalt. Older Skil were very good tools.

I don't spend a lot of time on job sites but it seems almost exclusively the only two cordless power tool brands are dewalt and milwaukee. Sure there are others but these two brands are around almost all the time.
