So... you want to return something and receive more than you paid for it?

I'm all for a deal but there are limits. The original deal was pretty good.

Thanks OP. I wasn’t able to get the $250 pricing as HD head office updated pricing to $348 and with battery promo. I can always return battery for the kit for $244 if needed.

I am not following you. Are you planning to return the kit for $350+tx, and therefore end up paying nothing for the battery?

If it is, does it sound or feel right to you?

You are not automatically entitled to mix and match different parts of different promos. You should not be able to combine the lower price from one with a freebie from another.

If you want to return free battery then it's hot deal same as other deal for $250.
But if you're not returning free battery then it's not because you're paying $100 for just 1 extra battery.

Thumps up for OP efforts.

I got this kit today and compared in garage with my current drill and impact Makita LTX with 4.0 batteries (I believe Makitas are brushed).
You get what you pay for.
1. Batteries seat flimsy in brand new tools. In 2 years old Makitas batteries seat tighter
2. Wider battery socket. Even 2 ah Ridgid battery looks much bigger than Makita's 4.0
3. Charger. Slow charger in Ridgid. Makita has fast charger with fan and recharge 4.0 batteries much faster
4. Socket for bits on impact is not straight. It's not perfect on Makita too, it's not big deal on short bits but if put long screw bit or big drill bit - tip bouncing as crazy and much worse than on Makita's impact. I'm going to try exchange impact tomorrow.
5. Maybe because Makita is brushed- they have better predicted RPM control with trigger. I found it when we got at work brushless Milwaukee and they are tricky to control low RPM, same as this Ridgid's.
6. Drill and impact slight louder on full speed than Makita.
Benefits- tools are powerful, stronger. Ridgid drill better in everything compare to Makita (that advanced model too). Nice multitool in kit, can get rid corded Dremel.
Don't be fooled by low price. I thought Ridgid tools in par with top brands like Milwaukee, Dewalt and Makita, but no, they priced accordingly for their quality

I also noticed that some of the Ridgid Tools are priced equivalent to dewalt but I personally think that dewalt is better than Ridgid. I think some Ridgid tools are overpriced equal to dewalt.

Are those regular prices you compared? Ridgid tools are always discounted and often cleared for very low prices. Factor LSA in and they are the best bang for the buck.

Performance-wise, they were never expected to be the same as Dewalt or Milwaukee.

Personally I use a drill for drilling. But maybe that's just me. I have only used the impact with nut drivers in which case a little wobble is not relevant.

With new kit exactly same story

Surprised people buying this kits and nobody mentioned impact defective
Makita

Ridgid

That's impacts for ya. Even though the wobble is less with the Makita there's still wobbling. But impacts are not really meant for drilling holes, that's what the drill is for.

I was skeptical about the max output batteries making much difference, but I did a quick comparison using my jigsaw and a 2ah MO battery is noticeably stronger than a 4ah standard battery.

Yes there is definitely a large difference in tools that demand more power. My circular saw performs way better with octane/MO batteries.

Sort of unrelated to the OP but I was wondering if someone can tell me if I scored a decent deal. I was looking for a drill/driver for basic DIY work as I'm a new home owner:

I purchased a Ridgid 18V drill and impact driver kit that comes with two 2.0 amp batteries and a bag. The drill is 1/2 inch and the driver is 1/4 inch.

Regular price is $188. I found an returned kit for $158 which actually happens to be unopened (probably a mistake?). I got a 18V 2 amp battery for free with the purchase. The receipt says the refund value of the battery is $61 (might be a bit more, I don't have the receipt with me right now).

So $158 - 61 = $97 for the kit.

Hopefully I did well here, haha. Appreciated any help.

Are they brushless tools? If so, you did pretty well. Not too long ago, there was a clearance deal for a Ridgid brushless drill and driver with two 4ah batteries for $90 but only a few stores had them and they went fast. You'd be waiting a long time for a deal like that to come up again.
