The Home Depot deal is for a brushless drill + impact and a brushed hackzall, no flashlight. This combo is the BRUSHED drill + impact + hackzall and the flashlight. The Home Depot kit also has larger batteries, 4.0 ah XC and 2.0 ah compact vs 3.0 ah XC and 1.5 ah compact in this combo.

The brushless drill-driver and impact have roughly the same levels of performance as the brushed versions (on paper), but they get better battery life. Given this brushed kit also provides batteries with 25% less capacity than the other combo the effect on performance of the tools is probably something like 35% less runtime per charge on both the drill and impact driver.

I've had the brushed drill/impact/hackzall for several years now with the XC batteries (I have three older ones -- not sure if they are 3.0 or 4.0). The batteries last forever, and all tools are going strong with light, homeowner use. I have seen no need to upgrade to FUEL or RedLithium yet.

Nothing wrong with brushed. He just pointed out it was really not apple to apple.

Home Depot deal is better, flashlight isn't worth the downgrade in tools and batteries

Any chance you have a link for the home depot special or is it over?

I agree. Milwaukee has some excellent LED lights, but the bundled "promo" free LED light is not one of them. There is a nice handheld light for around $59 that is great. There are floodlights that rival halogen floodlights but run on M18 batteries, but these will cost you $149-299 or so. The bundled "promo" LED light is a basic cheap LED light with a bluish-white beam. The more expensive lights have a "natural spectrum" light which really makes a difference especially it it's your main source of light and you are looking at things like wiring.

I'd say skip the "free" light and then invest in one of the nice M18 lights and you will be happier!

Agreed, and I do own the flashlight in question though I picked it up at a clearance outlet center for $20, which is about what it's worth. It's a standard LED vs the TrueView version in their better LED products, it's a decent toolbag worklight/flashlight that shares batteries with your other tools, but nothing exceptional.
