Yeah that's what I dont' like about this. I'm in FL and everything down here is concrete block construction. A hammerdrill is a must. Looks like i'm not trashing my 18V XRP drill any time soon.

Lowes sells what appears to be the same kit minus the grinder for a regular (not a daily deal) "new low price" of $399.

Makes one wonder if there is a general repricing to lower levels going on here? (Not saying this isn't a nice deal tho.)

I realize it has been discussed before but as a serious homeowner (I avoid buying harbor freight crap) do I really care whether it is brushed or brushless?

And will I be disappointed when that new Dewalt flex stuff comes down in price?

One of our use cases: building a very small off grid bunkhouse (shed sized) on our vacation land. Is this circular saw worth a damn or should we be using our generator + trusty old mag Porter Cable saw?

Not enough skin on the bone here.. I just calculated how much each might sell for on ebay and I get about $475. Minus 10% ebay fees.. no profit.

I love many of my cordless and corded tools. The corded tools always get the lions share of the work if it is a good sized project. Personally I like your idea of using the generator if you are out in the country you don't have to worry about dying batteries. My $.02.

I wouldn't depend on that circular saw unless you have a few large capacity batteries. The ones in this kit will only get you a few cuts.

If you need to do a lot of concrete drilling, a hammerdrill is not the ideal tool for the job. You need a proper rotary hammer for the best results.

Agreed, but for home repair and short jobs, the hammer drill is an all-purpose work-horse.

I wouldn't buy power tools from HF but their hand tools are definitely a value.

My concern exactly. This set comes with 2.0Ah batteries. Wish the set with larger batteries would go on sale.

Sheesh, watching for a good sale is like the stock market. You wait for a good stock at the right price and hope you get the best. I bought another set last month. I wish I waited for this one.

who makes the best power tool kits (performance, battery, durability, reliability, quality, warranty, ongoing support, etc) for under $500? Makita? Dewalt? Is this review [thesawguy.com]accurate?
