    Product Warrantee Issue...

    So, I was mulching a flower bed today and a free tool was included in one of the bags of mulch. As surprised and excited as I am, the free Milwaukee cordless angle grinder does not work. Should I address my complaint to Home Depot, Vigoro, or Milwaulkee Tools?..

    That's crazy. I would think someone was stashing it there for shoplifting, but it doesn't look new. Have you checked to see how much a charger and extra battery is gonna cost?
    Copper, brass, and Leather. 3 of my favorite things.

    It just happened today, and it was inside a sealed bag that I and a HD employee unstacked from a sealed pallet. I do not have a charger and I have no other Milwaukee tools. The mulch was pretty wet and it had sat in it for a while (two weeks I know of). I may see if anyone has a charger and give it a shot, but I just figured it was probably shot.

    Bark mulch in november.... We're getting snow tonight hahaha
    The guys and I have found all sorts of tools, parts, and pieces in the mulch pile. Found a whole box full of presumed snack cakes, the box was only in Spanish not to sure exactly what they were lol. We go through at least 3 tractor trailer loads every spring so the probability is a little higher.
    Nice find, doubt it'll run as well but always worth a shot.
    There ain't nothing wrong with an honest days work. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool.- Old Man

    It's a Milwaukee tool. They used to be pretty good. Still using a skill saw, 3/8" drill, and a bunch of plumbing tools that i bought new 30 years ago when i first started out in the trades.

    Nowadays, they're not so good.

    Anyway , the seasoned scrapper knows what to do with it.

    Update! I was picking up sme supplies at The Depot and the Milwaukee guy was there. I asked if he had a battery to plug into it and it worked fine. He said, "Wow! That is like a $200 tool!" I have it for sale on CL.
