Not a good deal IMO. Its lowest m12 drill. not fuel gen1 or fuel gen2.
The gen2 hammer drill can be found for under $50 bare tool on amazon.
The gen2 drill and impact kit is 199 at home depot with free tool.

Btw the m12 multitool is pretty bad. Milwaukee does not have any good multitools

Why do you say that? I'm "invested" in the M12 line and was thinking about getting it.

I had to redo a roof that involved scraping away lots of old tar so I did lots of research on multi-tools. The m12 one is not brushless and does not have quick change head. It also has a on/off trigger with a speed dial, while that may be beneficial for some, a variable speed trigger was way better for my usage case. There is also general consensus that the m12 is "weak".

So heres how multitools rank IMO (limited sample size):
dewalt xr>ridgid octane>ryobi>m12

Thanks for your input. Seems like you're in the minority on this view which is fine. I want both sides. I don't see any consensus saying the m12 is weak though.

nobody is going to get the m12 OMT because its exciting on its own, it really is just the only option if you want an m12 OMT.
It is a brushed motor and doesn't have easy blade change. Lots of competing models have both those things.
We really wanted them to announce fuel OMTs in both voltage systems but got nothing. Hopefully they announce something later in the year.
If you're bought into m12 then this is a good utility tool to have, and this is a decent price for it. I bought this bundle last year for $100, sold the drill for $40, batteries for $15 each and charger for $15 so I netted the OMT for $15 and for that price I keep it in my main kit. It takes up very little room and is good in a pinch and I don't have to pack another battery system.
I'd agree though that for the only OMT you have you'd be better with m18 or something a little meatier.

Thanks for further clairfying. I am simply trying to let people know this is not that great of a deal. The drill is nothing impressive, and the multitool is so old it came out in 2010 or something. And it comes with the gen1 lowest capacity batteries, they have 3Ah now in size of the 1.5h included here and 6Ah in the bigger size. I am not saying the tool is bad persay, just a bad price for what you're getting.

Agreed. Thanks for the clarifications. (I did not give a thumbs down) I want this to regrout a shower floor and then who knows when I'll use it again so it's probably sufficient. I only have M12 tools so I don't really want to branch out. I do love the M12 fuel drill and driver.

I have the 20v Dewalt multi and it is amazing to have a head with no tools to switch. The power is there. I tried a m12 and it didn't seem to have the umph (though I didn't actually get to use it on anything, just turned it on). For smaller jobs like a shower it would work but be a little bit slow. If you're doing tons of different things with it get a multi with a no tool head. (I am semi invested in m12. Fuel gen 2 drill/impact, fuel hackzall, jigsaw. So there is no bias against them)
