Lifetime warranty. It really doesn't matter if they are brushless. And I probably wouldn't be able to use up two batts in one day. I would rather lug around these smaller batts than my bigger batts any day.

I would get this set. But they are now $129. You can buy the $279 set and pick the Impact wrench for the FREE tool. Return the Impact wrench and get the set for around $180. It comes with the larger 4.0 batteries. So for another $50 you get larger batteries and the newest brushless 5X version. But this $129 set is still a good buy. Make sure you register them online right away (after receiving them) to get the lifetime warranty. Lifetime warranty is only good for the 'sets'. Not the separate tools or batteries.You can purchase the Impact wrench with a battery and charger for $159 that DOES have the lifetime warranty.

Add the $279 set to cart. Then go back and add the Impact wrench to cart. This will set the price for both items to $279. You will be able to return the Impact wrench t the store for about $98.00 or so. They have these good deals around XMAS time. But to me, $279 is way too much for this set (if you didn't get a free item) compared to the set listed here. Just make sure you pick the most expensive FREE item. This will lessen the cost of the set when returning the free item.

Thanks for good amount of explanation. I was talking about $79 Bosch 12v set, 2ah battery regular set.

This set is going to be much more powerful than that little Bosch set, but at the expense of size and weight. Which is best depends on your specific needs, but if you are only going to have one set, I'd say the downfall of this set (size/weight) is less limiting in comparison to the downfall of the 12v set (less power).

The combo set in your link has impact and hammer, but it does not have regular drill, we need that also, don't we? You may have already multiple sets, so less of an issue for some owners. You are right, less power and less weight vs more power and more weight. I use them less frequently.

A hammer drill is a regular drill with an additional hammer setting for use when drilling into concrete/masonry. It can be turned off when not needed. The only downfall when compared to a regular drill is that it adds a little more bulk and weight.

I have a craftsman set 19.2 lith and once I start using my real tools. (Sawzall, Circular, etc) the small batts die fast and the XL liths last about 45 mins of use.

Not sure about the batt life on Ridgid vs. the C3's

Yeah, because nobody would ever consider a drill or impact driver to be a "real tool". SMH

Oh, I agree.Wave When you start using amp sucking tools, they die quick. But for your basic, DIY drilling, I rarely change my small batts on my B&D drills. They usually last a month before needing charging. But my new set of Ridgid tools have three 4.0 batts. I can go all day on a single one doing mechanical stuff. But if I blow out a 53" box van or reefer, I must recharge my B&D battery on my leaf blower every time. Otherwise, it may not have enough energy to do the next trailer. But it is nice to have the smaller batts when you are upside down under a car and holding that impact wrench.
