I started piecing together a Rigid kit a while back. Ended up bringing everything back and going with the Kobalt 24v brushless kit from Lowes. Ended up being $230 for the drill/driver/saw/flashlight/charger/4ah battery. I'm pretty impressed by them. Spare batteries are cheap...
I sold most of my Gen5X tools and I've been mostly using Kobalt since (supplemented by Milwaukees and Makitas). Both Ridgid and Kobalt have their pros and cons. In particular I love the Ridgid mid-torque impact wrench and the Kobalt oscillating tool, compact 1/2" impact wrench, and one-handed reciprocating saw.

I guess I will pick up some Octane tools and see what all the fuss is about.

Anyone try a coupon in conjunction with the deal? Last time I tried to buy a Ridgid deal w/a coupon, it was a no go. Cashiers couldn't override...
No go. Just tried using a $25 off $200 coupon and the price reverts back to normal.

Did you add the batteries and tool to your cart separately or did you use one of the premade combos? The combos have the discount built into the price, it doesn't come off at checkout. So it might let you stack it.

To find them search for AC805 on the HD site. The battery kit will show up first then the combos should be right after it.

I just got a bare rigid x5 brushless and adapted it to use any battery- including those kobalt 24s. The difference between the standard 24s and a standard 18 volt battery is almost nothing. Especially since an 18 volt battery is a 20 volt max anyway.

I also doubt there is much performance difference in the tool being 24 volts. It makes my rigid x5 faster- but not really last longer.

You got a good deal, but in general the kobalt line is overpriced for what it is (otherwise I'd have one of those).

My coupon was for in store only so they did not have the combo you're talking about there.

Yes by far the value leader. I got the basic 4 tool kit two years ago and took it back though, very underwhelming when circular saw could only make 4 cuts before battery died..

It's sad that Ryobi sells their saw kits with their weakest batteries (1.3Ah), giving the result you mentioned. If only newbies were informed to try a higher-capacity battery before returning.

Correct. I tried a $25 off $200 ebay coupon with this and everything the cashier tried wouldn't work. And then when I tried buying another $200 of stuff, it turned out that unsuccessful attempt "used" that single use coupon. A nice CS worker took pity on me later and did a manual $25 discount.

Congrats on a terrible decision. I paid $259 for Ridgid Drill, Driver, Impact Wrench, Grinder, Flashlight, 2 battery and charger kit and I have a lifetime warranty on everything. Think about that every time you go and buy another cheap battery. Mine won't cost a dime.

i'm waiting on another SD on just a rigid drill or drill/driver or batteries. I can then use those LT batteries on my x5 along with the rest I already had. I'll end up having like 7 batteries.
