The general consensus among the tool owners at various trade forums is that new Husky tools are not professional grade tools. However, for general home use, Husky tools work well.
Since the 1990s, Husky tools has been a brand name that is used for tools made by numerous manufacturers. When the company was first founded in 1924, it manufactured its own tools; however, at some point after the company had been sold several times, it became a widely used brand name. As of 2015, Husky Tools is a brand name owned and exclusively sold by The Home Depot for general light home use.
