Aren't all impacts 1/4" while the regular drills are 1/2"?

Impact drivers are all 1/4. This isn't an impact wrench.

Throw a 1/2" adapter on there... It's a fuel 18v. It'll break just about anything loose.

Thats a bummer.... the circ saw combo and the recip saw combo are not FUEL models.
Even the combo kit does not include all fuel tools.

My store had Fuel recip saws with a 9.0 battery on clearance for $175. There were like six of them but last time I went they were all gone. Not sure if price dropped or they moved them or what.

Is that really a good deal? That equates to $133 per tool and that's if you value the light the same as everything else.

I know I got the Drill/driver combo for $300 (and was able to use online chat to have them apply a $50 off $250 Lowe's promo code to my order at the time bringing down the actual price to $250) which included hard case, two batteries, and a charger. That leaves you with four bare tools remaining for $500 more (one of those "tools" being a flashlight)

That is a good point about the four (three)... bare tools for $500 more -- you could probably pick up individual tools as you need for that. And don't count the flashlight -- I call that one the "giveaway" flashlight because I'm pretty sure it's the same one that was in the drill or impact set as low as $99 last year at HD.

Milwaukee makes some incredibly nice LED lights; I have several including some handheld lights (M12 and M18), the big floodlight and the pole light. Those are fantastic lights but they do cost quite a bit. In contrast the "giveaway" light is quite poor. It has the classic bluish LED hue. The more expensive ones have much better "natural light" characteristics which are important. So anyway consider the "free" light for what it's worth -- of course it's always handy, but I'd say don't count it as a valuable "tool" in the combo. (the "good" lights go from $60-$200 or so).

Thanks for the review. I love flashlights since I flood irrigate my little garden at night. I have never gotten any of the lights from these cordless kits because I wondered if they weren't the best.

The only thing I'll note (And this is a pretty fantastic deal) is that the blade guard on the circular saw is damn terrible, you can't get up close to your piece and watch your blade for a really precise cut. Your pretty much forced to Pin it back, which as someone who has seen 2 people torn open by circular saws I do not like to do. I don't see this mentioned in tool reviews which focus more on run time, but it damn near breaks the saw for me

Checked in store today at HD and it looks like this hammer drill is being discontinued - perhaps the impact as well. Looks like these are being replaced by the "One Key" models. Not sure that I care much about tracking my tools - I'm not a contractor.

But is this a very rare deal? I've been looking for sales on Ryobi tools or at least Li Ion batteries to bring my Ryobi multi too set back to life (currently living in the shed with dead batteries). I'm just a DIYer, but maybe its better to cut my losses on the Ryobi set and start fresh with these? Even without the recip saw, $115 each for the hammer drill and impact driver with extended life batteries seems pretty decent.
