Great saw, very capable for better control and more precise cut when the big reciprocal saw is too powerful. One hand operation is totally necessary sometimes. Pair this saw with a pruning blade, and you will have a great gardening tool, as well, win win. With a free ratchet, this is a good deal. The kit by itself is around $169.

The set of 5 has no Fuel tools. That is a big difference.

The fuel hackzall is much better than the brushed version in that combo. Plus a 4ah or 6ah battery really helps with this tool. Sometimes quality is better than quantity

Yup make sure you realize there is M12 and then M12 "Fuel". There is a difference.

Price is about average sale price for these +1 tool Fuel deals, so it really just depends on if it is a preferred combo for a particular buyer. I have nearly all of the Fuel series in M12 and M18 and agree with the other poster that with certain tools, the brushless Fuel series is a significant improvement over the non-Fuel. The multiple-tool deals are still a great buy for those just starting out with power tools and more than capable for 90% of home use.

Over time you'll find that you don't need that many, as long as they're a good balance of power, quality and weight. I pretty much use my M12 Fuel Impact Driver for most small jobs that require a combination of drilling and driving due to the light weight and plentiful power, and rarely even bother with the hammer drills anymore (for concrete and stone you'll want SDS over hammer drill and for wood, the impact driver is plenty for both drilling and driving unless you need a clutch).

Highly doubt anyone buying an m12 tool will ever need to change the brush...nor have any significant longer running time. I would go for the brush tool for $20 more and 2 extra tool. brushless is great for people who have to use their tool 8hrs a day/ 5 day a week 52 weeks a year. Brushless to the avg ppl is like having bluetooth on your tool...

tell that to the person who needs to drill and drive a screw in lol. I think $20 more is well worth the extra tools. Brushless is played out, overhyped. Yes it is better, but it's like buying a car and for $500 more you can get LED headlights upgrade vs halogen. You'll never have to change it and its true white light. I've had my car for 7 years and I havnt changed the head lights...its a 5 min job to change it and that's the same for a a brush tool. Ok maybe 10 to 15min lol all my tools are brushed except for new Milwaukee fuel m18 drill/driver one key that I got at $120. My oldest tool is 18 years old and I've never change any brush.

I think LED bulb is great in the house, I have it on 8+ hrs a day but I don't use my tools 8+ hrs everyday nor drive my carbon the evening 8hrs everyday.

Why must people continue to defend why they want brushless tools? I tried the brushed and brushless m12 drill and driver at home depot. For me the difference was well worth the extra cost in feel alone. Maybe someone else doesn't want it. Great for you. Save your money and get the cheaper set. No need to stay around here threadcrapping this one.

I've been thinking about jumping on the hacksaw and right angle set. But I'm not sure how much I'd use it. Already have a great pvc and pipe cutter.

I bought this kit in this thread and I was disappointed to find that the ratchet is not fuel/brushless (my fault for not researching further). I chatted with Home Depot and they said I cannot return/exchange just the ratchet. I'd have to return the entire set. Anyone know a way for me to exchange this ratchet for a fuel version? I really like the saw and want to keep it.

The rachet wasn't a big deal for me. It's a really nice rachet even though it isn't fuel. I love that it locks on. That means I can put in more force before starting it and removing the bolt immediately.

I suppose the fuel would give me about 20 to 30 more ft pounds to work with. But that wouldn't make much of a difference. I'd rather save the cash for the stubby over paying more for the fuel version of this rachet.

If you really don't want it but like the kit then you could probably sell it for 100 and that would net you around 80 after fees.

Thanks this helps convince me to keep it. I do like how this is smaller and can be used for more confined spaces. I know I'll never need the extra power but I was thinking more in terms of longevity. I suppose they both should last forever.
