I've been drooling over the new 1/2" brushless impact XWT08 and the brushless angle grinder XAG03 has been on my list for a while. $388 + tax for both tools and two 4 ah batteries is pretty good...might have to talk the wife into making this an early xmas gift.

You might have to add on the cost of the charger. I see chargers being sold from $30 on ebay. Do you think it is a very good deal or luke warm. I am not a contractor just a DIY home owner, even though these are quality tools, it is a bit expensive.

Same here, weekend warrior. Already have 4x 4ah batteries and 2 chargers. This deal is appealing to people that already have a base makita kit and looking to expand with some of their less common bare tools. If you're just needing a drill, 1/4" impact and possibly a saw kit there are better deals out there.

Off late I am getting too much interest in wood working, and want to start with some small projects. I have been looking into various wood working tools.
Will wait for really good deals or wait until thanksgiving.

For around the house this is way overkill imho. I picked up a cptool refurb for $120 or so for home. It doesn't get much use so the loud gears and worn bearings it had when it came out the box didn't bother me, ymmv.

I have a brushless impact at work and I use it to drill, screw, and impact with socket attachments.

For home, a Home Depot clearance/sale Rigid impact is about the same price as the refurb Mikita and has lifetime warranty on the batteries.

mikita makes nice tools, unfortunately the bare tools aren't on sale, so I'd say this is not a super hot deal.

Those batts are an overkill unless you are building an off grid cabin or don't know how to use a charger. The most power consuming tool (cordless) that i own is my Bosch 18v circular saw and even that i can usually do everything i need to on my 2 2ah batts.. if i throw the used up one on the charger (half hour)... i also bought a driver set with 2 more batts that i haven't even touched yet.

Its really a shame there isn't a universal battery standard across all makes. I mean..the things use the same batts inside (18650s i would assume)... stupid.

Sure they can, but for how long? The orbital sander has like a 20min run time on on a bigger battery, and the saws also draw quite a bit.

I'd say a set of those and a set of the compact ones (topping 2Ah) are a nice combo if you can afford it.

Anywho, I try and stock up on bare tools whenever they run $20 of $100 deals or just ebay shop like yesterday ($15 of $60). Bought an open box (lots of people/resellers break combo sets) brushless grinder for $67. Cost on Amazon - $145. Saving almost enough for 2x 2ah compact set from ebay.

I was really confused by coats/jackets on the list of "bare tools", then I saw "lithium-ion cordless heated jacket". o_O what.

I can cut a few sheets of plywood (1/2 inch) on my 2ah battery with the bosch... Like i said...for the homeowner 4ah should be plenty. I think 8ah is an overkill unless you are off grid. The chargers are very fast these days. I know Lipos prefer to be charged fast.

To be honest..i use my 12v stuff way more then my 18v stuff. I prefer the size/weight.

True, smaller batteries would get you there, but you need two anyway (work and charge). Multiple preferably if working with more then one tool at a time so you don't waste time swapping.

I love my compact 12v tools too, but there's the occasional project needs more juice (and also the 18V selection is usually way broader so you get better mileage out of the battery investment).
