Kobalt Upgrades Their 20V MAX Power Tool Platform


Kobalt is a relatively newer player in the power tool category but they’ve quickly ramped up their line to include a 20V MAX platform that can work with the best of them.

The tools are solidly built and not what you might expect from a house brand. Lowe’s has taken development of their Kobalt brand very seriously and this lineup of new tools affirms that.

Kobalt 20V Max tools are backed with a 5 Year No-Hassle Tool Guarantee. Batteries are backed with a 3-year guarantee. If you ever have a problem, no problem—Just stop in at any of 1700+ Lowe’s locations. Plus, 20V MAX tools are compatible with all Kobalt 18V Li-Ion and 18V NiCd batteries so you don’t need to throw away your old batteries.


You can get started with the 20V MAX by purchasing four tools in one package for $299.
