I've been waiting for a while for a deal like this to replace my aging NiCad set. This is the lowest price ever on this set, or any 5 tool kit from Makita that I can recall in the last few years. Home Depot [homedepot.com]
has this kit for $299 on Special Buy with free shipping...good deal. Note: Home Depot description says brushless, but I purchased the set and it does not appear to be.
has price matched. According to Camel, lowest price ever.
