Saw these at my local HD on an aisle end cap on clearance. $160 with the packout case is pretty nice. It's the gen2, brushless tools. The price on the home depot website is $199.

Thanks OP, unfortunately all out of stock around me. Great grab, especially considering it comes with a packout case.

Good deal, but I prefer the one I got a few months ago (obviously not available anymore). Impact Driver, Hammer Drill, 2.0 battery, 4.0 battery, tool bag, and free bonus 3/8" non-Fuel ratchet for $199. The bigger battery and addition of the ratchet was a no-brainer. If you need it now, this is a good deal and highly recommend this set. The bosch 12v platform is really good too, but this is way better (hammer drill + better torque specs on impact driver).

Just bought this set with the 4ah battery. The impact driver alone blows my Ridgid 18v (non brushless)
out of the water. Great value here!

I picked up this set (m12 fuel combo kit) except with 2ah, 4ah, and 6ah batteries but no packout last week for $179. This offer with the packout is nice as I'd prefer the packout over the bag I got with mine.

My girlfriend (5'0 tall, 100lbs) absolutely loves these tools with the 2ah battery in them. Super, super lightweight and more than enough power for anything she'd want them for around the house. Highly recommended.

I've seen so many variations of this fuel combo over the last few weeks:

Similar kit without the hammer (and hardshell instead of packout) for 116: https://slickdeals.net/f/13701845-milwaukee-m12-fuel-impact-driver-kit

Similar kit with a 4ah battery and cloth bag for 164: https://slickdeals.net/f/13704668-milwaukee-m12-fuel-12-volt-lithium-ion-brushless-cordless-hammer-drill-and-impact-driver-combo-kit-2-tool-w-2-batteries-bag-2598-22-164-ac-fs

YMMV price match of the Acme normal price of 179 (no longer this price) against this kit on the home depot website that included an extra 6AH battery: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../304755185

So far the slickest deal post-BF free tool promotions was the Home depot kit price match against Acme for 179 as it had 3 batteries (2ah (25 bucks) 4ah (50 bucks) 6ah (100 bucks), at retail prices)

Milwaukee tools have all kinds of deals, but at the end of the day the brushless fuel 1/4" impact drill is the best part of this kit. You can probably swing a better deal but this is a pretty solid discount if you can find it as the packout case is nicer than the hard case in the 116 deal and you're essentially getting the hammer drill for 44 bucks on top of that.

My 2 cents, been researching these tools for awhile haha.

What do you all think of these sets:


https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../310735968


https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../304708058
With a quick glance, neither of these sets are brushless (Fuel/Brushless is what I look for) and only come with 1.5ah batteries which are the bare minimum.

If you are a homeowner just wanting to do basic work around the house these kits are likely fine, but will lack the power, battery efficiency, and longevity of the brushless/fuel tool line.

My opinion is that the brushless craze is way overblown for a homeowner, and I can point to my non-brushless M18 tools that I have had for close to 10 years now that have worked perfectly fine for everything I have needed (and M12, but I haven't had them as long). Sure, given the same price, I'd definitely go brushless, but I don't think the price premium is worth it for non-professionals.

As for battery life, I have the 5.0 XC batteries for my M18 tools and the 1.5Ah batteries for the M12s. The M18 batteries seem to rarely need charging, and since I have four of them, I always have one ready to go somewhere. With the 1.5Ah ones, there have been a few occasions where I wanted the larger cells, but I usually grab the M18s for larger jobs anyway. If all you buy are M12 tools though, the larger batteries would be necessary especially for sawing.

On the above deal, I have the packout case, but it's not as useful as I envisioned because the compartments are huge. The slim packout case, which I picked up at BF, is better for me simply because I don't need a huge amount of fasteners at any one time -- the big one carries "hundreds" while the slim one carries "dozens". Once I get a little better organized, I may change my tune though. Big Grin
