Some stores still have these left over from Christmas and are clearancing them out.

You're right. If we wait 11 more months maybe it'll be 399 again?

Good point. One thing to note, these dont appear to be brushless. For a similar brushless set with a grinder (no packout, reciprocating vs sawzall) I paid 550 in November, but you won't probably see that price for awhile. However, please note that you have to pay tax. Later this month if eBay has a 15% deal you may be able to snag a good brushless deal from acme or someone who doesn't charge tax.

Is M18 FUEL worth the difference? I am a DIY guy but pretty anal about my tool quality. Wondering if any DIY guys can chime in with their thoughts. I'm in no hurry, so am I better off waiting for a 18V FUEL deal?

Thanks

My opinion is if you're only a DIY guy and only ever going to be DIY, save the money and get something cheaper. Or look into Rigid for the lifetime warranty. That being said, Milwaukee is a fantastic brand.

I 2nd what DaZimmer said but do think you **should** consider this set as because of the price. I went to home depot today. I thought it was such a great deal, I came here to post this deal....

It was $400 on clearance at my store.

I can't get speak to the quality of these tools versus "fuel" but I did price the non fuel saw by this brand. It was appx $200 with the battery.


I'd imagine you currently have a preferred drill/driver, so could probably remove them from your equation. I have a fuel drill and I love it. I was pleased to see these batteries will work with it!

Each of the "bare" tools seems to be right around $100- for a total of about $400 worth of useable tools (with the exclusion of the aforementioned light/driver).

This set has 3 batteries included. These appear to be interchangeable with many of the fuel line tools (I couldn't determine their price but I'd guess somewhere between $150-$200(?)!

The toolbox is about $120 by itself. I probably would have ignored it due to my tools rarely leaving the house.However, It is the unsung hero of this set imo! This thing is a beast! I sat on it in the store and it didn't even acknowledge my presence!

I came to the store to purchase a circular saw and a bag. I anticipated an outlay of anywhere between $175 -$250
the cost!

I now have 3 useable tools (hack, multi, circular) as well as trio of batteries.

Certainly no where near the $1k value stated on the box for my individual use case, but well worth the $400 I spent today. as a lightweight dyi person, if ever i need super heavy duty tools, I'd probably need a contractor to go with them! Ymmv
I wanted the saw for minor repairs/replacements to panels on a wooden fence.

. If time permits, be sure to individually price the tools in this set to determine if this set has value to you and your anticipated future needs. If you don't need the toolbox, you could easily sell it for a net profit of $100. It would be a mistake imo if you forget to include the toolbox in your calculus! I'd suggest getting this kit if you can use any combo of 3 of these tools plus toolbox! If not there are cheaper non combo options available to the dyi guy/gal that will function comparably.
