Ridgid sets look nice, but I've heard too many horror stories about their warranty. I've got the 980 drill myself, and it's amazing how much power it has. Plus Dewalt bare tools and batteries are easy to find to add to your arsenal.
Yes...and makes it so much easier to get the top of the line Brushless Impact Drive bare tool in your hands. The beast is awesome! And I have Dewalt 18v impact drivers...they were my previous favorite. Also have the Rigid...and gave it to my neighbor to use until I have a need for it again...
