Aha, I figured out what DeWalt is doing... I am not criticizing, just making an observation as I am fully committed to both 20 volt and FlexVolt.

They actually want to move you to FlexVolt tools and this is the way they are doing it. The video below is a comparison of a FlexVolt vs FlexVolt advantage circ saw. It is recent. https://search.aol.com/aol/video;...ction=view

So, you buy the "advantage" tool with a Flexvolt Battery "Free." The Advantage tool does give you some marginal improvement over the regular 20 volt circ saw WHEN USING A FLEXVOLT BATTERY.

This is a good deal...sort of like a loss leader to a degree... They give you an "improved" 20 Volt tool with the bigger battery and NOW you have a flexVolt battery. Their normal pricing usually turns people off and represents a barrier to moving people into the 60 volt tools.

But now you got a FlexVolt battery...and you watch videos like that one above and others like this https://search.aol.com/aol/video;...ction=view and realize how much better they are and tool only prices are only a bit more than 20 volt tools and then they throw kits with FlexVolt batts at you at Black Friday (wait for it) and good tool only prices and.... you are hooked.

Does this make Home Depot a pusher man and FlexVolt Advantage tools a gateway drug? It's a sick sick world... Hey man, can I have a hit? Cmon man, just one...
If you are looking for something for around your house I would suggest this current deal on a 5 tool DeWalt package (drill, impact driver, oscillating tool, orbital sander, circular saw) for $299. 4 of the tools are brushless (circular saw is not) and it comes with 2ah and 4ah batteries. Really nice package. https://slickdeals.net/f/14466500-299-dewalt-5-tool-kit-dck560d1m1?v=1&src=SiteSearch
Honestly, this is probably not what you need for an "around the house" drill. Its pretty heavy and big. This is more of a heavy duty drill meant to be used for demanding tasks. I feel that you would be much better off with a regular XR drill/impact combo.

That being said, if you want all the power you can handle, and don't mind the weight and size, then grab this for sure.

Nice deal. Decisions decisions. Got in on the prime day XR recip saw deal at $109 and now have to figure out what to do and if I should return that for this. Apparently that XR ships with a damn good motor that is slightly faster than the Flexvolt according to this test:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boeCHvwlA7A

Edit: after doing some research, it seems that the flexvolt advantage line is in between XR and a true flexvolt in terms of power output when using a flexvolt batter; the true flexvolt is still at the max power output. Close decision, but seems I'll be keeping the XR.
I am a more advanced DIYer and bought the XR Reciprocating saw on Amazon Prime day for $104. I used it yesterday cutting some posts on a deck job and it had a lot of vibration. Do you think this is a better deal. I don't mind the price as I don't like to skimp when it comes to my tools (will skimp somewhere else).

Actually, I'm probably returning the prime day XR. That XR that was tested in the video link was a power detect, so not a true XR. If nothing else, having an extra battery is nice. Thanks OP!

The prime day saw is nice for sure, but its going to have a ton of Vibration. However it is shorter. I prefer a full size recip saw like the power detect version, or this one. If you don't mind having flexvolt batteries, this is a heck of a saw.

Get the kit.

I use this hammer drill around the house a decent amount, and it's a great tool. A bit bigger and heavier, but not overly so in my opinion. I have the 20V XR drill/driver and use it more, but if it's setup for something, I just grab this and go, it's not like a huge burden.

Now, if you're drilling in big lags or big holes, this guy has the oomph....just make sure that you're braced for it, or it'll twist ya around pretty seriously. For example, my wife doesn't use it even if it would be a better tool for what she's doing, just because it can grab and torque ya pretty seriously.

This saw is only able to cut in two directions, the Amazon one has 4. I might stick with the lesser powered one for the versatility. Just figured I'd share since I'm in same debate boat.

Thanks! Need to do some brick and concrete drilling, fence repairs, around the house miscellaneous. Looking to spend more on quality that I'll have a long time but In this case, seems the hammer drill is for heavier tasks. I do want to go dewalt since I have a tool/battery already. Will head to HD to find the kit later today. Great feedback all and very appreciated!

I agree with other posters. I have this hammer drill as well. It's too big and over powered for around the house if you have other options. Heck with the 60 volt on it's bigger then my tool bag for most jobs. Get a kit and then add as the job demands.

Been looking for a good deal on a beefier angle grinder for a while, this was just the ticket. The true Flex with a 9.0 battery is $300 normally, so it's only about $50-60 to step up to the much more powerful grinder. At the same time it's a heavier larger tool and won't run off 20V batteries at all, and I don't need to brutalize steel all day long. The FA version will get improved power out of my 6 and 8 batteries too.
