This was posted a few months ago, but noticed in store and online, it's still active. Original price was $239. YMMV , as some stores are still original price and some are OOS.

Mine is in stock, I want the 12v recip but I already have the driver. I might pick this up just because the recip is $99 alone. I do wish it was the impact though.

I picked up the reciprocating saw when my store had the free 5ah battery with it. Otherwise, I would get this kit, since it also has two batteries, the extra tool, and the backpack

How do you like the reciprocating saw? I have a larger one but was thinking about this for pruning and lighter activities.

I really like it. I use it for cutting metal thresholds on door installs. I also trim metal seal retainers that surround the doors, prior to install. I like the ability to use one handed while holding material.

Thanks OP, in for 1. Kind of silly because I really just want one battery to add to my laser level.

Interested in opinions: I already have the 20V atomic drill and atomic recip from another kit and I'm on the 20V system. Any logic to keeping these 12V versions? Feels redundant with the size of the atomics anyway, but curious if there are ways these could add value. Otherwise will sell them.

I use the 12v tools for lighter jobs, like installing knobs, doors, and one handed stuff. They will do most things the 20v will do, but when you get into heavier duty stuff, 20v is better.

The 12v are better than the 20v Atomic. The Atomic were a massive disappointment from Dewalt.

I was so stoked, that I went in big info the Atomic line right when it came out. I assumed I'd be able to have a 12v sized tool, with a 20v battery. That way I would be able to use only 20v for my dewalt tools. After a few weeks of using them, I was crushed when I could feel bearings starting to crap out, and motors overheating.
So I went back to the trust 12v versions for smaller tasks.

Dewalt's been slipping downhill faster and faster with every new tool concept they've introduced over the past 2 or so years. It's a shame, but I suppose it's inevitable that all items for all things go this route. But Dewalt seems to be trying to fail with their newer concepts. If they keep it up, they'll end up in the Ryobi/Rigid realm. Frown

No doubt, DeWalt is definitely below Milwaukee, Makita and probably Flex in quality. They're like the Nissan (vs Toyota and Honda) of the mainstream power tool makers.

I was thinking about getting this but I rarely use a regular driver anymore. Impact all the way.

Calling them "the Nissan " is actually fair, and a compliment. Plus, Nissan is also Infinty lol. Smilie

But, like car brands, It depends upon the particular car (tool).

For instance, the XR oscillating tool by dewalt crushes other brands for oscilating tools. But Dewalt Routers for instance, suuuuck. Lol.

I like some of the XR and 12v. Everything from Dewalt (in cordless hand tools) outside of their 12v and some XR are on a level slightly lower than Ryobi.

Now, Dewalt could easily be the best overall tool brand again, but the path they have been on these past 5 years, has only seen them stagnate. And that's what hurts Dewalt the most.

Now, I do use Dewalt Batteries the most (with adapters for other brands). They tend to hold up a long time compared to the Makita's, and Milwaukee's .

Dewalt could be better, but the ownership is killing them. Other companies are improving by adding new tools constantly, and upgrading the tech. Dewalt is just "Do you like a Bluetooth that is pointless?" Or "what if we put a governor on the tools that allows them to get an unnoticeable amount of extra power if they buy and use a bigger battery??".

Right now I have tools from several brands... but it seems I reach less for the yellow than I did 2 to 3 years ago. Same with my Milwaukee actually. The Bosch blues and Makita's greens (and my newest love, the burgundy from Japan) tend to get grabbed more often.
