A good kit to enter the Ridgid Ecosystem. Includes Drill Driver and Impact Driver and two batteries. Eligible for Lifetimes Service Agreement after registration (meaning free replacement of tools AND BATTERIES for life)

Ridgid Cordless Drill/Driver and Impact Driver with (2) 2.0 Ah Batteries, Charger, and Bag [homedepot.com] - $139


As psharkauburn pointed out, this other kit has the same batteries and charger, along with a brushless hammer drill and a brushless impact driver with higher capacity batteries. It is only available for store pickup though YMMV: Ridgid Cordless Brushless Hammer Drill and Impact Driver 2-Tool Combo Kit with (2) 4.0Ah Batteries, Charger [homedepot.com] - $179

Impact Driver vs an Impact wrench.
Those are two VERY DIFFERENT tools.
Impact driver is measured in inch pounds (In/lbs). A Impact wrench is measured in foot pounds (Ft/lbs).

For example, this deal includes a impact driver that provides 1,750 in./lbs. which is converted to 145.8333 Ft/lbs.
In comparison; Ridgid's weakest sub compact impact wrench delivers 2700 in/lbs converted to 225 Ft/lbs
The Ridgid's strongest impact wrench delivers 18,000 in/lbs which is converted to 1,500 Ft/lbs.

Just remember, you would use a impact driver to "drive screws" into a deck (pretty much any screw going in to a lumber material like wood), You would use an impact wrench to "wrench" on your vehicle (pretty much any medium machined screw into a machined bolt, metal on metal)

If you buy drill & driver kit, sooner or later you will need a hammer drill.
That also comes in a kit.

I'd take a stronger look at https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI...c0pp1iW3s0

It includes the brushless tools instead of these older brushed models, and has 4ah batteries instead of 2ah. I'm a big fan of the Ridgid ecosystem and tools, just that $40 difference gets SUBSTANTIALLY more value.

Checked out your link and it is showing $299. Maybe it was timed or limited amount, but what I found for $179 was the brushless kit with 2x2ah batteries. Would still move to that, though.

Psharkauburn makes a great case for the brushless set. Newer technology and double the Ah batteries for $40 more? With the LSA you'll never miss that $40 over the rest of your life. I call this one a no-brainer.

When I click on the same link it shows "18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Hammer Drill and Impact Driver 2-Tool Combo Kit with (2) 4.0Ah Batteries, Charger," for $179.00. The batteries are labelled "Hyper Lithium" 4 Ah batteries. However, after looking closer at the HD site, it also says 11 in stock at my Las Vegas store and is NOT available for an online purchase. Psharkauburn's great suggestion is not available everywhere. So, you are right, YMMV.

I would as well if the impact driver would be an impact wrench. What dissuades me is I already have the impact driver, plus my tire changing days are over for the vehicles I own. Still a super deal if you have a use for the tools and your HD has them in stock.

For those who have never used a hammer drill to make a hole in concrete or cinder block, it's the difference between a few seconds or a few minutes. I own a couple of corded hammer drills (one an SDS that's a beast) that serve me well for the rare times I use them. But when needed I am so glad I have them. The idea of having a cordless hammer drill is very tempting, and yet unjustifiable for my needs.

I'm a little confused by what you're saying here but let me share my story. i had a heavy duty (i thought) craftsman drill/hammer drill. it was taking be like 10 minutes to drill a 1/2" wide 4 inch deep hole into concrete. unexpectedly the drill burned out it's brushes so i bought a Milwaukie SDS hammer drill. About $179, really the smallest SDS drill you can buy. OMG I will never use go back!!! That 10 minute hole took literally 15 seconds with the Milwaukie. Don't bother with a combo drill with a hammer setting.

I have found a combo twist-bit style drill/hammer drill very useful for holes up to 3/8". Carbide bits in a normal drill just don't cut it. They take too long, over heat the bit and destroy it. Anything over 3/8" in a "hammer drill" you will want an SDS hammer drill. My neighbor used mine to drive a hole in his driveway for a gate latch pin. He said it cut through like butter. It's a beast. Smilie And this SDS corded drill is a low-end HF drill I bought many years ago with a 20% coupon. I netted out at about $67+tax.

I have this set. I like it but I would really like it if the impact driver had a power setting switch. A number of them do. Prior to this impact driver I had a less powerful 12V model. This is really nice when driving say #2 screws. This impact driver is strong enough that at full power it will sometimes strip out the screw head. To avoid this you have to modulate the trigger. However, once the screw is started it's nicer to just pull the trigger all the way and not worry. A power setting let's you do that and I really wish this one had it.

As for the smaller batteries and brushed motors, if you are using this full time then go for it. If this is a home owner, DIY setup, the difference is likely not worth it. I can see wanting the extra battery capacity but it comes with a weight penalty I generally wouldn't want to pay. This is why I often use my smaller 12V drill instead. I haven't had any issues with this bushed drill lacking in power. Same with the impact driver.

I bought this Ridgid 5 tool set for $299.99 [homedepot.com] last year and have really enjoyed using it. The 4 amp batteries are great to have, and the reciprocating saw is strong. I cut a mile trail through my Aunt's property last year for a motorcycle using the reciprocating saw and a chain saw, and I was very happy with the results. I used the impact driver yesterday to get to some bolts on my Tundra to get the skid plate off, and I'm very happy with it as well.

Yeah, was seeing more stock a week or two ago, they're getting snapped up. Still seeing a couple around me in Western IL.
