The biggest draw to ridgid tools is the lifetime warranty, which these won't have.

Not valid for refurbished models?

The language in the listing claims that it will be covered by the ridgid "warranty", but keep in mind that is far different than the lifetime service agreement. Also from homedepot.com:
Quote :
Recon Limited Warranty Reconditioned tools automatically receive a 1 year limited warranty from the date of purchase. Valid receipt from an authorized retailer is required. Warranty is not transferable. Reconditioned tools will have the word 'RECON' or some variation stamped into the tools housing. Reconditioned tools are not eligible for the Lifetime Service Agreement.

How many people have had to warranty a power tool? I have used my cheap Black and Decker 20V drills for nearly 7 years without issues. Also used refurb Dewalt 20V XR brushless drills for 3 years. Then several other drivers, recip saws, etc.

Guess I am just lucky, never had a problem.

Edit: surprised by all the "non-helpful" votes... I am glad I posted and got to hear others' experiences. Appreciate the insight guys.

If the HD set for $249 is still on sale, you would be foolish to buy anything else unless you REALLY don't need those other tools.

I think they also warranty the batteries if I'm not mistaken. But I'm with you on the power tools. Unless I've done something to break them I don't think I've replace a power tool other than to simply upgrade to a new platform / brand.

I'm all in on yellow but kind of wish i went with Ridgid at times when i see the deals that pop up.

They warranty the batteries if bought in a set but not if they are bought individually. That's a huge plus that Ridgid has over the competition

I'm all in on red only because I started buying them years ago and am kicking myself when I see the Ridgid deals as well, but too many tools and batteries to start over now

Probably been asked a 100 times but how does the brushless Rigid line compare to Dewalt and Makita?

Newer tools have more electronics in them and if you watch AvE, you can easily see how they fail. It's not usually the motor or gears but electronics, battery or other little tidbits. I went Ridgid because of the LSA since I don't use my tools for my daily job and an issue might crop up 5 years down the road. I do use them outside and for harder work than the average light home use. Ridgid, Milwaukee and Ryobi all come from the same factory, just different levels of quality. For the average homeuser, Ryobi seems the most appealing with lots of extra devices to use your battery for like a weed eater.

This is a loaded question kind of like asking what religion is better lol. Most people are on one boat or the other. I went dewalt because my dad used dewalt. Which might be how most people pick a brand in tools. I'd say if you are using this around the house or light duty work there will probably be no difference.

I can't speak to the use of ridgid in a professional setting as i didn't use them and wasn't into the trades for very long. I will say 90% of what i saw and see in the trades was dewalt, Makita, and Milwaukee. That's not saying its bad one way or the other.

But sorry for the long winded non-answer lol.

The hammer drill in this set seems to be an "upgraded" variety over the one in the HD set for those who care. I've seen comments on the HD set mention the Impact driver and the Grinder being the two best tools in the set with the others feeling a little underwhelming.

I think at this price point w/ 2 4AH batteries (HD set has 1 4AH and 1 2AH), its a pretty good deal. I've had good experiences w/ CPO so far (Dewalt Lithium Ion drill going 3 years strong from them - refurbed at the time).

To your point my Dad has been a die-hard Dewalt kind of guy. Hence my initial purchases were Dewalt. He's been interested in "exploring" and has not taken the Li-Ion or brushless jump so I figure I'd let him have a taste with this for X-mas and see how it goes Stick Out Tongue

I've used most of the major brands in some capacity or another (and currently own some DeWalt, Milwaukee, Makita, Ryobi and Ridgid products).

I think Ridgid generally stands up there with the best of them and definitely are a big step up from Ryobi. Performance may fall a tiny bit short of Milwaukee in some cases but honestly most people wouldn't be able to tell.

The major selling point for me and many is their LSA. Combine that with some of the "buy one get one" deals that Home Depot does where you can return an item and get a bare tool for half price, it makes them really enticing.

At this point since I don't do any professional work with my tools, just DIY home and mechanic stuff, I've been buying all the tools I need from Ridgid assuming they make them. I am sad their catalog isn't bigger which is why I still use my Milwaukee ratchet, DeWalt blower, etc.

Edit: boy someone really doesn't like Ridgid, tore through this thread giving everyone "not helpful" ratings.
