Or you can hack the drill/driver kit for $55. Seems like very good deal.

Great deal with the hack. Just be aware that this drill does not have the hammer function for masonry drilling

Truly awesome deal with the hack. You might even add "or $55 w/hack" to the title.

However, around me it's not available in store, so I'd need to do the long form version of the hack: actually ordering and receiving both and then returning one to store. (Vs ordering for pickup at different stores and canceling the item that isn't wanted.)

Really tempted by this, but mostly due to how poorly the chuck on my current ridgid drill works.

Ordered the set - we'll see what shows up.

It looks like the incorrect photo was used: the drill/driver pictured is Ridgid's hammer drill: it has the white hammer icon on the side. However, the description doesn't mention hammer functionality and Ridgid's site for this tool (R86114) says it's a brushless drill/driver without hammer functionality, and the tool pictured is slightly different - no hammer on the side:

https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/18-v...ill-driver

Gotta assume that Ridgid's site is correct on this, so if you're hoping that the brushless hammer drill might show up (as I was) - probably not going to happen. Either way a very good deal, especially considering that the battery is the MAX version. I'm still in for one.

Order the set, and on the receipt, each tool will be itemized at a discounted rate: the drill/driver, battery, and charger for $55 and the impact driver for $64.

After you receive them, you can return either in-store for the amount on the receipt, making the effective cost for either one the discounted price.

I'm seeing the price listed as $267 on the website. Is it expired?

Curious what your main complaints are. Power? I have a dozen or so of the new basic brushed version that my students have been using this year, and so far I've been fine with them. Bought them due to the LSA - as students can destroy anything, but haven't had to return any yet.

Granted, I'm not putting in a lot of hours on them myself; my go-to is the subcompact brushless version, which is the bees knees for everyday work, especially overhead. (The only issue with that is that it sips battery while idle, a small but annoying gripe. That and the general Ridgid 18v complaint of loose-fitting batteries.)

Updated my post. Brushed vs brushless want my issue and I should have been more clear.

I've got a ridgid 18v from a few years ago that came in a combo kit and the chuck on it is garbage. Constantly slips on drill bits and gets on my nerves.

This one looks like a better chuck.

Ridgid has LSA if you registered within 90 days of purchase. The chuck should be covered right?
