The link takes you to the Milwaukee "buy more, save more" event. Basically you need to get your cart to around $600 (after the discount prices) so you can qualify for the $200 off $600 promotion, then you return the other items.

Step one is change your store to Fairfield California or store number 0637. Step 2 is make sure your cart is clear (other items in your cart can mess up your price) then add (Make sure they have the little "buy more save more" icon when you search for these items)
(1) Milwaukee M18 FUEL 16 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Chainsaw (Tool-Only)
(1) Milwaukee M18 FUEL 120 MPH 450 CFM 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Handheld Blower Kit with 8.0 Ah Battery, Rapid Charger
(1) Milwaukee M18 18-Volt 1500 Lumens Lithium-Ion Cordless Rover LED Mounting Flood Light (Tool-Only).
That is 3 total items in the cart. You will see their discounted prices in the cart now and it shows the chainsaw for $168. Make sure on the checkout page they are ship to home (not pickup in store). Then you can return the 2 items you don't want at your local home depot and get the chainsaw for just $168.

The alternative is what I did. Add
1) Milwaukee M18 FUEL 16 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Chainsaw (Tool-Only)
(1) M18 FUEL 8 in. Edger Attachment for Milwaukee QUIK-LOK Attachment System
(1) M18 18-Volt 4 Gal. Lithium-Ion Cordless Switch Tank Backpack Pesticide Sprayer (Tool-Only)

Some people have had success selling the blower battery for $100 and getting the blower also for $68.

Or you can get the M18 sprayer for $206 if you add the M18 chainsaw, M18 fan attachment and the M18 sprayer.

Did anyone else see the drill bit prices? Is that normal? COVID-related?

I'm sure they were in the $30-50 range before, now at $99+

Why in God's name is the milwaukee so much more expensive? Only comes with one tank also. Ryobi has 2 tanks, with battery and charger for $140. I have the milwaukee m18 platform and do not have Ryobi and don't want to start another tool platform. The extra milwaukee tanks are $130 also! I know milwaukee is better than Ryobi, I'm a - buy it once and spend the money necessary to get quality- guy, but this seems crazy.

Am I missing something as to why it's so expensive?

The red color comes from the blood of mermaids, and that doesn't come cheap.

In some cases there is possibility of using one system battery with other system. M18 planer was never on sale and reviews were pretty bad so when Makita had deal at HD getting one much cheaper made me look for adapter (which available on Amz.n and fleabay ) which allowed me to use M18 batteries (up to 5.0 size because of design limitations) with Makita planer so the only thing extra is $20 cost of the adapter and space that it takes up.

Sprayer makes no sense, when a backpack sprayer is much cheaper and takes a couple pumps between sprays, not a slick deal unless you only have one arm

Just because you don't have an application in your mind where a consistent stream is needed doesn't mean other people don't. If you are just spraying weeds or some other bullshit task like that, sure it doesn't make a ton of sense. But if you are spraying waterproofing on something that is 1000sqft it might make your life just a little easier. There are probably countless applications for something like this outside of what you consider its usefulness.

you can also get the drill combo for 188, which is pretty solid, doesnt beat the clearance deal a few months ago, but if you missed it, its a pretty good deal for M18

Drill combo (not fuel)
Saw
Fan

sprayer price doesnt make sense, normal M18 over charge.

Automated sprayer though, roybi for $75...when a manual pump is $65 ...totally worth it.

I put a Schrader valve on my manual pump sprayer. Now, no pumping after I fill the tank and pressurize it with air from my compressor.

I'd like to have the milwaukie chain saw, but I don't need it.

No, I don't think you are.

On top of that, the SwitchTank system isnt compatible with the SwitchPack system used for drain snaking.

I could see some price justification if the system had other cool/revolutionary switchable features like maybe a vacuum, blower backpack.

The reviews online for the SwitchTank claim a lot of leaking tanks. I do NOT want pesticides on my butt unexpectedly.

Is that safe?

I just bought the planer for a small project and my understanding is professional carpenters don't love it because it doesn't have a 90 degree measurement capability, and the zero depth measurement to just take a saw blade off takes off too much.

I got the m18 planer for $169 on ebay in new or like new condition out of box, so overall was happy with price.

That's a great idea! One question though- How do you know how much pressure to put in? While pumping you'll feel resistance, with the air compressor...?
