My experiences with the recon site have been great, not perfect but great. I am out of town at the moment or I would have the woman’s name that handles the recon site. The times that I have dealt with her she was great! I bought an RAS a while back, just after they announced that it was going to be discontinued. A few days later retailers started dropping the price so I called and griped. They would not lower the price but they immediately offered to send me a return label to send theirs back. The very day that I dropped it off at the UPS store to return it they issued the refund. I ended up getting a new one (with a three year warranty) for less than the reconditioned one.

Additionally all the tools that I have purchased have looked brand new. One had a missing item that was supposed to be included and they sent me one right away once I let them know.

I have spent a small fortune on the recon site.

With ONE exception I have had ZERO problems and this includes a Kapex in the mix.

The one problem I did have was an obvious mistake and was resolved with a phone call to customer service.

For the most part, everything received has looked brand spanking new.
