No. I would grab it.

I am deep into the M18 series. The oscillating tool is one of those things that you will need once a year, but it will be the best tool for that job. The M18 hackszall with a tree trimming blade is great for pruning, you can hold a branch while you cut with the other. Also obviously good at cutting off PVC and all but the worst demo work.

I've started getting into the M12 series and they have enough power for the average DIYer. I actually prefer them over the M18 stuff, when using them one-handed in weird places. The M12 stuff should perform nearly as well as the M18 with a decent battery, and you get the advantage of a lighter, smaller tool. I'm sure someone here will say that this isn't the fuel version, but most DIYers won't fully realize the benefits of fuel. The fuel version of this set just went on sale a week ago, minus one tool. I think the average DIYer would be better served having more tools, even if they are non-fuel.

Really the only thing that you need after this purchase is one of the lights, and maybe a circular saw or a jigsaw.
People don't pay a little extra for Milwaukee M12 tools because they are fashionable, but because they are great quality, decently powerful, proven reliable, compact little lightweight tools that offer a huge variety of various tool options all of which share the same batteries and being backwards compatible (and likely future) for decades.
This set comes out to $50 per tool, if we consider the charger and 2 batteries to be free. Does anybody have a good argument - against a Jr-novice homeowning DIYer / baller on a budget / guy who messes every project up and gets yelled at by his wife - making this their first power tool set?

Nope, sounds perfect for that. Just know that you'll probably get into it and then want to upgrade everything to fuel or m18 fuel down the road! More cash!

While I agree that this is a good price for this set, I will say that if you don't care about the brand, you can get a much larger tool kit for the same price. For example, there was a porter cable 6 tool kit with a drill, impact, circular saw, recip saw, oscillating tool, flashlight and two batteries for 210 on sale recently. Now, all the people who eat, drink, and breathe tools will tell you that these tools are no good, but they'll do the job!

If you care about brand, or will be embarrassed when other guys see your tools, get the milwaukee, but if you have some self confidence and care more about value for money, and won't use them daily, you can easily find a bigger set for the same cost

Highly recommended for an average DIYer. I have the M12 drill, Impact, and sawzell and was able to finish my 500 sq.ft. Basement with them, including demolishing a small closet that was already there.
I'll am looking to get more powerful tools now, but won't be getting rid of these, as they are small and very easy to use.

Echoing what others have said, these are perfect for the average homeowner or light DIYer.

I own a couple different tiers of hand tools - 12v, 18v, 24v, and 40v, plus mains-powered tools like a Dewalt hammer drill for when I really need to put a 1"+ hole in concrete or stone - and they all have their uses. That said, 95% of the time I grab my M12 stuff because it's powerful enough and very lightweight and ergonomic to use.

If you're a heavy user, I'd say you should look at the Dewalt 20v line for their Compact models; more oomph than the M12 but double the price tag. But I recommend the M12 for anyone who just wants a basic kit for getting things done around the house.

I understand what you're saying, and I agree, in fact, I'm a proud Milwaukee fanboy myself. But for the occasional DIYer/"baller on a budget" who is asking about a 200 dollar tool set, I just wanted to point out that there are other, more affordable brands. With occasional, DIY use, I doubt the tools will be under significant stress, meaning reliability shouldn't be an issue. And, as for backwards compatibility and breadth of tool line, you're right, few companies even come close to Milwaukee. But most DIYers won't need a battery powered copper tube cutter, rivet tool, caulk gun, etc.

At the end of the day, I'm saying that there are other options. If one is on a budget and only needs a few tools for seldom use, why buy top of the line? If money wasn't an issue, we'd all be telling him to buy the newest, most powerful kit.

Great first set. I got a similar set around xmas for the same price, but came without the multi-tool, but with the 3/8 ratchet and a flash light. I really wanted the ratchet more than anything, but end up using all of it over my bigger Dewalt and Makitas.

I'd say it's solid. If you were going to build a good sized deck or similar project you may want to plan on some 18v tools. For typical around the house repairs though it's hard to beat this set. I want it to supplement my 18vs.

I've been limping along with an impact that needs a new charger and a Dremel that needs to be replaced, so rather than spending $100 to fix those I just pulled the trigger on the combo with the rotary tool. Thanks OP.

Hah, you perfectly describe my usage. The M18 fuel hackzall with the Diable pruning blade is a BEAST.
