  • HAUSSMANN power tools manufacturer's

    HAUSSMANN power tools are sold at RONA, Reno-Depot, and Totem Building Supplies across canada. They have taken over the "RONA" brand of power tools. There was a previous post on here about HAUSSMANN and many people stated GMC power tools made these for RONA, however that is not the fact. I worked at RONA for 4 years, and here is what I know about them.

    http://www.sumec.com/en/col64/articl...?intShowType=5
    Sumec produces the drills, impacts, and other bagged cordless tools.

    http://huafengtool.en.alibaba.com/
    Huafeng produces circular saws, mitre saws, grinders, dual-blade saws, and biscuit joiners.

    http://www.rexon.net/product/european/bt2500ae.htm
    Rexon produces table saws. These are excellent quality saws, and are made for everyday use.

    http://www.aircofasteners.com.au/toolmenu.php
    Airco produces all types of pnuematic nailers for RONA. Framing, roofing, brads, and staplers. These are the same products that King Canada Sells under the 'KING CANADA" name. For the price these are excellent tools.

    The HAUSSMANN line carries a 3 year warranty, and a great price line. These tools are not made for contractors, they are designed for the DIYer. There are some HAUSSMAN EXPERT tools that are contractor quality, however the price of a brand name tool to a haussmann expert is nearly the same.

    I own a the 10" sliding mitre saw, which has worked excellent for the 200 dollar price tag (other comperable saws go for 450). I also own a 18v Drill/Impact Combo($119), which I have used ALOT in the last 2 years and never had a single problem. The weight and feel of these tools is excellent considering what you pay.

      Who asked if you liked RONA? the topic is on haussmann tools. There are things about RONA i dont like either, however the framing lumber they sell in the west is better than any lumber you will buy anywhere else. All 1 inch boards are Gorman, and all framing lumber from 2x4-2x12 comes from Dakeryn, who sells J and A grade Lumber. Once you use a premium lumber you will never go back, less crowns, twists, bows, and great appearnace

        I happened to be in a Rona store the other week and took a look at some of those tools and noticed the initials PRC stamped on them. I'm guessing that stands for the Peoples Republic of China, are they all made in China?
        When I asked one of the workers he said that he thought they were made in Germany, they didn't look German to me.

          I always thought the name was chosen specifically to sound German which is pretty much a put off for me...

            my thoughts exactly, they are no more german than i am(i was born in the uk), they are chinese imports just like 99% of the portable power tools on the market

              It's not that I have a problem with Chinese tools but it seems intentionally deceptive somehow.

                i avoid chinese tools if i posibly can and not just for quality reasons, but political as well

                and yes the "haussman" name does seem purposely deceptive and that irks me and the fact that an employee of a rona store thinks that they are european is indicative of the deception

                  Strictly marketing. Of course they are not made in Germany. It's the same as all the marketing we encounter every day. Take the beer ads.....just buying the specific beer and drinking it doesn't mean that you are going to have beautiful girls flock to your side and the party will be amazing, but that's what the ads would have you believe. RONA isn't saying these are built in Germany, they are just putting the thought of German quality into your head at the same time you're purchasing them in hopes that we will put the two together. It's called marketing. "Purposely Deceptive" is another term for marketing, in my books, and no different than at least 99% of the products we see on a daily basis.

                    The first time I saw the Haussman brand I smiled to myself. I thought to myself, are they kidding?? But then on reflection, 90% of the purchasers really have no clue and would assume Rona is a reasonable store and sell a reasonable product. For the 3 or 4 times a year they might actually use the drill or whatever, it's probably fine.

                      Re: HAUSSMANN power tools manufacturer's

                      All tools have a full 3 year warranty so why would be scared to spend a small amout of cash?? People in this era don't have thousands of dollars to be wasting on tools that they will not use everyday. Instead of paying 350 for a bagged set drill and Impact, why not pay 119 and beat the crap out of it for 3 years? My mitre saw may not be a BOSCH or Makita but it does the same job, it has a double laser, 16" slide out, and double bevel cut and I payed 300 bucks with the stand. A saw of this magintude from Makita or Bosch with a stand could go over 600 easy. The fence was perfect on it, which for most cheap saws is the biggest problem. Another funny thing is BOSCH tools are made in china however i can bet alot of you are using them. Bosch tools only carry a 2 year warranty, yet they are a superior tool. BOSCH is GERMAN enginered not german built. You would be very surprised If you knew who made what in the tool indusrty for who. If you dont use your tools every day simply use your head people, I am not bragging about Haussman, its just like Mastercraft with canadian tire, King Canada with CO-OP and Ryobi with Home Depot great tools for the price. I personally would never use HAUSSMANN for my contracting needs, same with RYOBI and Mastercraft. THESE TOOLS ARE FOR THE DO IT YOURSELFER NOT CONTRACTOR/BUILDERS PERIOD!!!

                        Who said they were european? If you read the top post at no point do I mention these are euro, infact I state they are made in China. I used to work at RONA, don't anymore, second I am not gloating on Haussman just setting the facts. The RONA i worked at is nothing like the RONAs u see, our town has less people in it than a big box RONA store has employees. There are many things about RONA i dislike as well, the only reason my name is ronaselect is because I appreciate good building materials, especially framing and decking lumber. CO-OP or McDarmid is my only other choice and if I had to use that rubbish material I wouldnt build.

                          Honestly you come across as a pretty blatant shill. You are here defending Hausmann and then you are slagging Triton routers in another thread.

                            Cheap tools with a fraudulent name. Perhaps "Mao Tools" might be a more accurate moniker?

                            Huassmann was chosen to IMPLY German heritage and quality, plain and simple. As to Bosch, many of their tools are Swiss, German and Mexican, with the Philippines and yes, Taiwan making the rest. BUT id put Taiwan as higher quality then what comes out of mainland China. That, and even Bosch's asian tools are of high quality. Ive never had a bad Bosch tool.

                              If you want to rag on a tool, try it out first. Have you personally tried to use these tools? I personally wouldnt buy a triton router, personal choice. If you like them than use them, I would perfer a freud.
