View Full Version : How come no stores carry the Porter Cable?

Are the Porter Cable polishers only available online? I have checked every hardware and power tool store within 50 miles of me and nobody sells it. :confused:

You'd get the best (?) deal from Coastal Tool. Why bother driving miles around to shop ? Just order online and they'd deliver it right to your door :)

For some dumb reason some Lowe's stores do carry the 7336 (Which is the same thing as the 7424 but without the backing pad) and some Lowe's doesn't. My local Lowe's does not. Yes I looked at all 4 Lowe's within a 75 mile radius of me.. I got mine from coastal tools. BUT Autopia has the PC with 5 pads, better baking plate and two MF Bonnets for $179.00
Plus a free bottle of Sonus Paint cleaner.
PC 7424 With Pads (http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?autopia+yc5RwM+son-daspol-kit.html)
Coastal sells it for $119.00 Plus $10.00 shipping
Pads are $59.00 +$8.00 Shipping = $196.00 If bought separately
Like I said it equals about the same if you order the whole kit from Autopia instead of buying the PC from Coastal then ordering the pads separately.

I completely forgot they just built a new Lowes about 10 miles away from me. Drove over there today and found the PC for $109. Thanks for the tip! :)
