If they are then that's good news. Even though I don't like their power tools of late, I still have a soft spot in my heart for Sears. To me Sears is a part of Americana that should not be lost. If their stuff is up to snuff, I sure will give them a try.
Yeah, the word I've heard is that Sears has gone Bosch. On our trip to Iowa last month, I was greatly impressed by their new 6" jointer, and the hold-down miter gauge on their new table saw. I was so enthralled with the miter gauge that I forgot to check out the saw itself.
As of the last two years I have become very very bitter towards Sears.
On several occasions I have needed to go back to the store on Warrenty issues. Bad experiences is all I got. Years ago Sears "used to" honor their warrenties with a smile. With that service of years ago I became a loyal customer. Even told others about why they should shop at sears.
I had a bad battery to get warrenty coverage on. - BAD experience
I had a tire --- same story
My daughter had a tire -- Same story
Another battery -- Same story
I had 4 cars registered at one time. Mw, Wife, Son, Daughter.
I talked to the service manager - I ended up yelling at him in the store and I walked out to a car with a dead sears batery.
I emailed customer support SEVERAL times - NO replys at all.
I "used to" buy a TON of stuff at sears - NO LONGER - do I grace the door - NO LONGER do I recommend Sears to anyone.
Nope - Sears is NO LONGER the retail Icon that they "used to be". Nothing but another Giant rip off just like the rest of the group of giant rip-offs.
Sears of years ago has been dead and gone for a long time now. "Used to" be's just arn't anymore. :(
