It may only be a 10% discount, but it IS the new K model, WITH batteries (which is hard to find in stores right now).

If I didn't have a stack of 2.2 blades for my corded TS55, I'd probably have snapped this up.

But at much diminished warranty right?  Unless you need it right away for some reason doesn’t sound like much of a deal.

Correct, only 1 year instead of 3, including on the batteries.  Each buyer needs to decide if it's worth it to them, for sure.

First time I've seen three drills in a row move so quickly. 28 minutes.

So let's do the math.

LS 130 = 96 minutes
RO 125 = 1 minute
SysLite = 6 minutes
MFK 700 = 1 minute
PS 420 = I think the system stalls on this one.  [huh]

Probably true, although back in October, one sold in about 2 minutes.

I was about to say "October was me", but I grabbed the PSC420 rather than the PS420, so it was a different day, but a similar quick sale.

Some quick stats from yesterday's HK through today's Kapex (today's HK is still live so it's not included)



Dominos always go pretty quick. I thought the Kapex would go quicker, considering it was added late in the day compared to previous times it went live. I almost pulled the trigger on it, but started having second thoughts. It's a decent discount, but is the discount worth giving up the additional 2 years of warranty? For some things, yes, but for others...I'm not sure.

As more data is collected, I can potentially add approximate time intervals for when the tool might go live based on previous sales time averages.



Or maybe I'll just keep that info to myself  [big grin]

Remember-they had a special in U.S. on the Kapex in 2020 that included the cart and wings for $1995.  So I imagine a lot of people satisfied their Kapex needs then.  The wings and cart bought separately are $960 so that was a decent deal for a brand new 3 year warranty saw.  But yes-the dominos sell quickly.  I was fortunate enough to snag a 500 from recon this spring.  I think I have only seen the 700 up once on Recon this year and I could not afford to hit the button then.

@4nthony I joined your Slack. What was interesting to me was they sold a RAS 115 back in September.

Most of my tools I get 2nd hand via Recon or other sites. I paid full price for a Kapex. I didn't want to gamble the warranty with all the history of that particular tool.

The only reason I'm not babysitting the site today is because I managed to snag a used TS75 over the weekend for a price that wouldn't violate Geneva conventions.

I just hope whoever gets these tools from Recon, especially the TS75, is someone who needs them and will use them rather than flip them.  Now that I have all of those ash slabs back from the kiln, I needed something with a bigger depth of cut.

Nice. It's been cool seeing the member list grow. There's only around 40 people in there and I don't really know who still uses the notifications, but it's always cool to see someone new sign up. The RAS listed back September sold in about a minute.

Agree with your Kapex comment.
