It's been this price for a while now. I think it'll go down further once we get closer to the holidays

I got this over a month ago when it was posted, great deal if you can get your hands on it. The nice thing with this kit, everything is XR! I have mostly XR tools and some non-xr and I notice a big difference. The non-xr brushless tools are junk - weak motors. Circular saw is a joke, I smoked a motor in the non-xr right angle drill just doing regular electrical work, and no light on the non-xr jigsaw. That said, all the XR tools I have are solid. Plenty of power, lights where you need then, chucks are more solid, etc.

This is a great deal on some really useful tools. Nice to see a bundle that doesn't have drills for once. I had pieced together the same tools from previous deals and paid $350 with no charger. I would have been all over this!

Does DeWalt even make a 20v XR right angle drill?

So far, all I have seen and used is the DCD740 [dewalt.com] that has a load of power and has held up well for us and others. The plus being there is a hex slot inside and at the bottom of the chuck to hold spade type and other quick change or impact bits. At a fraction of the cost, it is not a Whole Hawg, but on low speed, the tool has a lot of torque for smaller jobs.

AFAIK that's the only right-angle. I've had mine for several years now, and only used it maybe once years ago until recently. I just used it for grinding the rust off some metal pieces, which involved running it for probably 2-3 hours a day for 4 or 5 days, during which it got pretty hot. I was worried I was going to burn out the motor doing all that, but so far so good (knock on wood). Now I just have to clean it out since that job made a mess of it.

Yea, it sounds like you were almost borderline abusive... lol ... I cannot complain about the tool and we have three of them in use, have given at least five away as gifts and still have at least a couple more new ones on shelf from a deal. I am just a bit surprised that DeWalt has not come out with a brushless model.

Although corded, the Metabo deal for $30 that is now $39 may have been great for you....

For portability, we have the DeWalt XR 20v grinder [dewalt.com] that is a bit pricier, works well, but not used all that often and why I cannot justify upgrading to the flexvolt model that does have more power.... there is almost always electric around for a plug in type.

Great deal!!

About the Jigsaw though..

There are two types of jigsaws, a D grip and a barrel grip. Whats shown here is a D grip. Barrel grip has more advantages - period but often cost more. If you think you'll be using it a lot, I would go with a barrel grip without question. If you wont be using it that often, I think this is one of the best you can buy actually.

Benefits of barrel grip:
  • Can cut at much weirder angles, even cutting upside without issue
  • Hands are closer to the workpiece meaning you should get even more accurate cuts (for me, this is the #1 reason to go with barrel grip and a really major benefit actually)
If what I stated above doesnt impress you, then just get this. The multi tool is already becoming a default tool for even light DIY'ers these days, this is one of the top 2 battery operated ones on the market IMO. DeWalt sanders are famous for being hard core and who doesn't love a slow charge charger! Yeah sucks they rarely ever give away the fast charger in these kits.

Edit: Typo fixed

It's just preference. one is not better than the other. I've used D grips for over 10 years and I couldn't get used to the barrel grip at all.

Yeah, no doubt, but it was a learning experience. First time doing a job like that, and I thought it would be easier. By the time I realized how much of a pain it was and did some research on angle vs die grinders, it wasn't worth it to buy something new and I just finished the job with what I had. Besides, may as well get some more use out of it since I never have a need for it. But if I ever have to do a similar job, I'll definitely be getting a die grinder.
