Where to Buy SKIL 

These products will become available to consumers over the next one to two months. That being said, SKIL products are available at major retailers such as The Home Depot and Amazon. However, Tools in Action will keep you up-to-date on the latest from SKIL, including when and where these products become available.

The great thing about SKIL products is the quality you get for a more accessible price than name brands, like Milwaukee, DeWALT, Bosch, and so on. This makes SKIL a great brand for everyday consumers who just want tools that are strong enough to get the job done when problems arise, without the same amount of investment as new, professional-grade tools.

Once again, these products from SKIL will debut this upcoming fall, the battery is guaranteed for September So, you just need to wait a little bit longer if you’re looking to upgrade or invest in a battery platform.
