Some of the most reviewed products in String Trimmers are the RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Electric Cordless String Trimmer and Edger - 1.3 Ah Battery and Charger Included with 8,722 reviews and the RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger Included with 7,152 reviews. The Kobalt Tools 24V brushless 6-1/2″ circular saw spins the blade at 5400 RPMs and can cut 87 linear feet of pine on a single 4Ah battery pack. Kobalt Tools claims this is the only 6-1/2″ circular saw that can cut three 3/4″ pieces of plywood—the same cut depth you’d expect from a 7-1/4″ circular saw.

Kobalt is a line of hand and mechanics' tools, power tools, and tool storage products owned by the Americanhome improvementchainLowe's. It is the house brand for both Lowe's in North America and their joint venture with the now defunct Masters Home Improvement in Australia.


Lowe's and manufacturing partner J.H. Williams launched Kobalt in 1998,[1] with the intention of competing against rival retailers Sears and The Home Depot and their respective Craftsman and Husky tool brands.[2]

In 2003, the Danaher Corporation began producing the majority of Kobalt hand tools.[3][4]


In 2011, Lowe's ended its arrangement with Danaher and switched to a different supplier for its mechanic's hand tools,[5]JS Products of Las Vegas, Nevada.[6] Screwdrivers continue to be supplied by Great Neck.[7] The same year, the Kobalt line expanded to include cordless power tools,[8] manufactured by Chervon.[9] The current (2020) miter saws are manufactured by Rexon Industrial Corp. Taiwan.
