Yes, we understand the advantages of brushless. But for $300, can you find a good brushless drill?

Slickdeals is full of people who exaggerate "oh it's not brushless" but then you can't find a brushless product for this sale price of $300. Then it doesn't really matter if it's brushless or not if the premium product is double the price of the cheaper one.

Having both brushless and brushed version of this, you won't really be able to tell the difference. I like the brushed version of the drill better because it doesn't have the brushless wine to it.

Just a word for the wise rigid is going to all octane tools, so they will be clearancing out the remaining stock of brushless and brushed gen 5x over the next year.

Appreciate the information. If that's the case, this sounds like a really solid drill since it can serve multiple purposes. Suppose I'm probably even better off with something like this than a normal drill.

Thanks for the information, and that's a great tip! I think I'll wait a bit longer and see how low the clearance pricing drops these sorts of kits.

Is there a video somewhere that compares octane tools vs non octane? Wondering if it is worth the hype.

You'll have to keep an eye my my guess is they won't be large website clearances, like this. They will be markdowns in the system aka Clarence end cap or buy x and get this and that for free kind of a thing, if the past history is any indication.

So far from what I've seen besides the new octane specific tools they appear to be comparable. Generally tools that are power/battery intensive benefit from upgraded battery technology ex saws and grinders. For your drill and impact driver I can pretty much go all day on a single 4ah battery unless you are driving lags all day.

Out of curiosity, is there a reason you're interested in it? I assumed the 18V would be preferred in pretty much every scenario. Have I missed something?

I already have the 18V pair. I am just a weekend user. Something lighter for smaller jobs is what I am looking for. This set would be great if I didn't already have the drill/driver.
