As you know I didn’t get to the GIE_EXPO but many of the other bloggers did and one of my favorite tool blogs, Tools In Action was able to get a Denver Global Rep to tell them a little about the re-engineered Raven.
I want to thank Tools In Action for posting this on YouTube so I can show it here.
Orginally we all called it the Lowes Raven 710 and it had problems. So many problems in fact that it was recalled in May of last year. It sounds like they have quickly gone back and made the improvements need to try the market again. The rep stated in the Tools In Action video below that there were over 150 changes made to the product.
The new models will be called the Raven 7100 and Raven 7100S
