Milwaukee Tool After-Hours July 18 - and Promos!

by Stephanie Tonnies on 06/23/18

There's a lot of exciting news from Milwaukee Tool! Last month, Milwaukee held its annual New Product Symposium to announce the new tools and accessories slated for release in July and the following months. The biggest news was the release of the new M18 12.0Ah Battery, which consists of an entirely new lithium cell that allows the battery to remain 50% cooler and have better efficiency. With the release of the M18 12.0Ah Battery comes new high demand/high output M18 FUEL Tools that will be packed in with the new 12.0Ah Battery: a 16" Chainsaw, a Table Saw, a 7"/9" Grinder, and a new generation 7-1/4" Circular Saw and Super Sawzall that outperform their 15A corded tools. These should be arriving in July...hopefully, just in time for our Milwaukee After-Hours on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. If you buy one of the new tools listed above between now and July 21, 2018, you'll get a chance to win a $200 Rolling Tool Bag!  Contact Stephanie at the store to pre-order yours.

To see all of the new power tools, hand tools, and accessories coming out later this year, search Facebook and Instagram using the following hashtag: #NPS18.

You won't want to miss our After-Hours on Wednesday, July 18th from 2-7 p.m.! We'll clear out our rental department for the event, and you can meet our Milwaukee Rep, try out the tools, enjoy some food & drinks, take advantage of current promos, and enter for a chance to win a prize. We had a lot of fun at our April event and are really looking forward to the one in July.

There are so many promotions going on now through July...visit the "Sales and Rebates" page of our website for all of the details. A quick summary of them are as follows:

1. Get a free M18 FUEL Blower or Hedge Trimmer with the purchase of an M18 FUEL String Trimmer Kit.

High Water Bills? Consider a Water Deduct Meter

by Stephanie Tonnies on 08/13/12

Many customers have remarked that their water bills have been much higher than normal due to the drought.  Some municipalities, including Albers and New Baden, have ordinances allowing the use of water deduct meters.  These meters must be registered with the Village Hall and are used to measure the amount of water being used by outside hydrants.  Water used outside doesn't enter the sewer system, so the municipality will deduct the sewer cost for outside watering from your water/sewer bill.  Sewer costs are much higher than water costs.  The water deduct meters often pay for themselves in the first month at locations with swimming pools, sprinkler systems, and excessive landscape irrigation.  They're easy to install:  they simply connect to your outside hydrant and a garden hose.  Contact your Village or City Hall to see if water deduct meters are permitted; we have the meters in stock.

Want to water your landscaping but worry that you might forget to turn the hose off?  Consider using a water timer.  These timers attach to a hose and automatically shut off when you want.  Simply set the timers for the amount of time you want the water to be on, whether it's 30 minutes or 2 hours.  Stop in today for your timer!

We also have many types of sprinklers, soaker hoses, sprayers, and nozzles for all of your lawn and garden needs.

We'll also have hot dogs, popcorn, and beverages for those who stop by. 

Don't forget to check out our sale ad, and definitely take advantage of Milwaukee Tool's great deals that day.  A representative from Milwaukee will be on hand for tool demos Saturday.

We appreciate all of our customers, and this is our way of saying thanks!
