CPO Commerce Releases Its Top-Selling Tools List for 2010
CPO Commerce, who we work with closely as a recognized source for new and reconditioned tools, today announced its list of top selling tools this 2010 holiday season. Customers can purchase these tools at any of CPO’s 40 online brand-focused stores.
CPO’s Top Tool List for the 2010 holiday season includes tools for both professionals and DIY’ers. Here is a look at CPO’s top selling tools since Black Friday kicked off the season.
Most Popular Power Tool Combo Kit
Milwaukee‘s $199 2-piece 18 volt Lithium-Ion combo kit (model 2691-22) is a perfect gift for both Pros and DIY’ers. It’s a very powerful drill and driver, with extremely long run time especially since the battery is so small and light. We reviewed the Milwaukee 2601-22 Compact Drill as well as the included 2650-22 Cordless 1/4″ Hex Impact Driver and found both tools to be excellent.
The Best All-Around Tool
Dremel’s Trio rotary tool kit (model 6800-01) is a DIY’ers dream tool and has been a big seller all year in the major home centers. CPO found the $99 Trio to be an ideal tool for tackling many cutting, sanding and routing home improvement projects. We reviewed the tool and marked it as a great present and, while a tad limited in usability, its versatility and unqueness lend the tool to make a great gift.
A Tool for Every Job
Dewalt’s recently launched 12 volt Max line of power tools (various models) packs a powerful punch in a compact size and weight. CPO notes that this has been a very successful launch in a category that Dewalt had not previously had an offering. The 12 volt Max line includes a drill, impact driver, impact wrench, screwdriver, thermometer, inspection camera and a flashlight. ($39-$199)
- DeWalt 12V Max Drill/Driver
- DeWalt 12V Max Impact Driver
- DeWalt 12V Max Screwdriver
- DeWalt 12V Max Thermometer
- DeWalt 12V Max Inspection Camera
Sounds of the Holidays
Bosch has recently upgraded its popular job site radio to include features such as SIRIUS satellite radio, MP3 compatibility, a 4 way GFCI power outlet, remote control, and premium 360 degree stereo sound. Bosch Power Box Standard Jobsite Radio (model PB360S) and Bosch Power Box Deluxe (model PB360D) offerings make Bosch’s radio the best (and toughest) on the market. ($179/$279)
Best Stocking Stuffer
Perfect for all of your around the house tasks, the Black and Decker Ratcheting Ready Wrench (RRW100) is an irreplaceable tool you’ll reach for time and time again. This wrench includes the 16 most popular standard and metric socket sizes, so you’ll have everything you’ll need to get the job done. “These are flying off the warehouse shelves,” said Emmons. ($27.99)
“2010 was an exciting year for new tool launches. The leading brands have introduced innovative new products, and this year there is something for everyone, regardless of budget.”
– Jeff Emmons, CPO’s Director of E-commerce
