Best deal I have found as HomeDepot.com has $25.00 off $100.00 and free shipping on the DEWALT 20-Volt Max Lithium Ion Premium Drill Driver / 12-Volt Max Screwdriver 2-Tool Combo Kit DCK295L3

Link [homedepot.com]

I didn't need Hammer function and this is the better quality drill/driver and comes with TWO of the 3.0 ah 20v Batteries. The DCD980 Drill/Driver Kit goes for $259.00 alone on Amazon...so for $174.00 you get that plus the 12v screwdriver with battery as a bonus!

Price: $199.00 - $25.00 = $174.00 and Free Shipping (tax additional)

This code reported as Expired: (Used code "CMHD2012" for $5 of $50 purchase to bring total down to $169.00 - Thanks to Pctek4456!)

This comes with:
20V MAX DCD980 premium drill/driver
(2) 20V MAX 3.0 Ah batteries
12V MAX DCF610 Screwdriver
(1) 12V MAX battery
12V/20V fast charger
bit tip
belt hook
contractor bag.

The MAX systems are a great compliment to one another - the 12V MAX can be carried via the belt hook throughout the day to provide a perfect lightweight solution for the smaller fastening applications while the 20V MAX provides the power, torque and speed to complete the all of the heavy-duty applications. The DCK295L3 includes: 20V MAX DCD980 premium drill/driver, 12V MAX DCF610 Screwdriver, (2) 20V MAX 3.0 Ah batteries, (1) 12V MAX battery, 12V/20V fast charger, bit tip, belt hook and contractor bag.

I just got this:
http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5...LZcToaPvps

Had 3 contractors at home depot going on and on about how awesome the ridgid tools are and how much they love using theirs (but given your use, either one of these will be good) The biggest selling point for me about the ridgid set was that it has a lifetime warranty which includes the batteries.
I have a 6 yr old Ridgid set (18V NiCD) and it just keeps going. Back then they actually gave full size batteries in every kit, I got a 5 tool kit and it came with 3 full size batteries and I havent had to replace any of the 3.

Ive heard horror stories about service, but in regards to batteries they seem to be much easier to get right. Bring them to a service center or send them in, and get a new battery. Pretty much no questions asked. Actually needing tools fixed seems to be another story, but knock on wood the tools themselves have held up through a lot of use over the years.

That said, if I had to buy another set Id probably look long and hard at the Milwaukee stuff, just because they've developed their "system" a lot better than Ridgid has in regards to additional tools (go on RidgidForum.com and search for cordless grinder to see a lot of angst from Ridgid users)

$199 - $25 with HD 25 off 100
174 - $5 with HD 5 off 50 coupon code
10% back with Discover Card purchase
5% back with Mr Rebate rebate

Should be $143.65 + tax after all the rebates and crap if you have a Discover Card.

Should be $160.55 + tax after the latter rebate...and crap if you do not have Discover.

I'd love to buy this deal but my old 19.2V Craftsman drill is still going strong with it's original batteries from 2004. And I use it a lot. Smilie

Many reasons for me...

Because it gets me the premium Drill/Driver with two 3.0 ah Max batteries for less than that kit alone. (Two 3.0 ah Max batteries are $129.00 on Amazon and kit is $259 for drill/driver)

And, because, for serious work I would buy (and have bought) the Brushless Impact Driver from Dewalt... That is serious business.

And, this, as others have mentioned, gets me a small 12v driver thrown in for really small spaces (basically at no cost).

And, now I can have serious quality tools with the 'good' batteries to expand my collection, if needed.

Ryobi and Rigid - I have had them. They don't compare, in my opinion and use to Dewalt. Especially the Impact Drive....the tool of all tools

Hope this helps...and hope this doesn't come accross the wrong way. This is my literall validation for my purchase Smilie
Looking at the pictures, it looks like it comes with two 20v batteries and 1 12v battery?

I will now attempt to read your mind to know what you need your tools for. You either need an impact driver or a compact screw driver. Let us begin.

Mmmm... I see confusion... You... had to ask this question because you are unsure of your purchase. You wonder if an apple would be better than an orange and now question your choice.

If you have to ask this, you probably don't need such a high end tool. Isn't that always what happens at Slickdeals though? Smilie

These are great for the professional carpenter and the like who know what they need and will abuse them daily.

See the Ryobi post on the last page.

I'm trying to figure out what's the best deal. both come with a drill/driver. dcd785 and dcd980. I'm trying to figure out if the difference is big, from 1.5 vs 3.0 and etc. not everyone is a carpenter like you.

What order do you click in to get both discover and mrrebate to be applied?

I add to cart first, then click on mrRebate next or Discover next?

I just ordered the $100 kit, with the 2 18v nicd batteries and drill/driver. I'm a new homeowner, going to be doing handy work for...ever. Would you recommend getting into Li-ion batteries if I have NO other tools yet? Any opinions?

NiCD's just don't last, even if you don't use them. They won't hold their charge. Do you have anything against a corded drill. My corded drill is far more powerful than every cordless I've had access to using. That said, it only gets used when I need brute force.

I'd prefer something cordless, I wouldnt even mind having one in the charger at all times. I just keep hearing all these 'studies'/''myths'/'opinions' that li-ion sucks for this kind of equipment (regarding shelf lives, etc)... but I'm digging the 20V/12V combo.

Is this the direction dewalt is going in? I dont want to have to upgrade to li-ion in 2 years, you know?

I like my Li-ions. They have a better shelf life than Ni CDs. My Ryobi's have not been the best as they had a bad batch of the older big batteries, but I believe they've figured out their issues.

NiCDs are known to pack more of a punch, but their self discharge rate has not been improved over the years and is far to high for my liking.

Not as good. Has the smaller/cheaper batteries.
