Well reviewed impact wrench with 450 ft/lbs of torque, plus 2 batteries, bag, and free drill/driver

I've seen the impact wrench on the FP for $159. Recognize that has been the price for a while, but this deal adds a drill/driver for the same price and includes 2 batteries rather than one larger one which I prefer (can always use one and have one charging).


Includes: (1) drill/driver, (1) impact wrench, (2) 2.0 Ah batteries, (1) 18-volt charger, (2) belt hooks with screws, (1) contractor's bag,

Good deal and worth posting. Just a note to anyone shopping for this it MAY be worth it to you to spend the extra $40 and get the impact wrench, brushless impact driver, and brushless hammerdrill with 2 4.0AH batteries.

I own these tools and they are good. Just note that a 4ah battery allows the tool to perform with noticeable more power vs a 2ah. I am not talking about longer runtime. I am talking about more power. I compared 4ah vs 2ah on my impact wrench and you can see and hear the faster speed and power. The 4ah lets it draw more current.

I second that. You get a lot for $40 more: the impact driver, bigger batteries, and a much higher quality drill.

And don't forget the 11% rebate for in-store purchases in some areas this week.

Good call on the in-store rebate (https://www.homedepotrebates11percent.com). For $40 more I was on the fence but for less than $20 more I will probably step up to that package.

Ryobi, Ridgid, and Milwaukee are all made by the same company. Basically their entry, mid, and mid-high grades (though you can argue that point when it comes to quality).

The ryobi tools tend to have less overall power, but are decently reviewed. The ryobi impact wrench has about 2/3 the power of the ridgid.

I bought the ridgid hammerdrill/impact combo with the reciprocating saw and bought the impact wrench from ebay. The battery replacement sold me, or else I would have bought milwaukee (kinda wish I had still). I have read that many people run into issues with the Ridgid warranty. YMMV

Agreed. It's definitely a way better deal.

I never have issues with rigid warrenty. Just make sure you register immediately and register replacements when you get them.

All owned by the same Parent company - TTI. Completely different companies though, different R&D, different manufacturing facilities. There is a trickle down effect of the Milwaukee features to the Ridgid to the Ryobi but usually takes awhile.

All 3 company make great tools, unless you are a pro and use them everyday I doubt you'll be unhappy with anyone you choose. Even Ryobi brushless tools now are pretty great. I have a bunch of Milwaukee and am a DIYer. Use the tools a only a couple times a year. Thinking back I would of been just as happy with the Ryobi and saved some money. Only thing I didn't like much about Ryobi is how big they are. For example the Ryobi brushless impact driver is huge from front to back, Milwaukee's Gen 3 is half the size, literally half.

I was going to buy the Bluetooth battery and impact deal a couple months back for 199. Then I thought I was going to purchase the $159 that's been ongoing. Glad I didn't. This new $199 deal with 3 tools and 2 batteries is a home run.

Pretty certain ryobi doesn't make a brushless impact yet unless it just came out.

I bought a rigid brushless drill last summer from Home Depot and left it out overnight and it rained. The motor froze. Will they fix it?
