[Home Depot] Hot - Rigid - 18V 5 tool combo kit, 2x 4.0AH - $397

Saw this deal in the most recent home depot email. Likely pull the trigger and pick it up.
Includes hammer drill, driver, zawzall, circular saw, flashlight, charger, and contractor bag.
Don't forget the lifetime warranty!

Looks like clearing out stock, with significant amounts available (77 near me).

Looks like a great deal. Anyone have any experience with Rigid's lifetime warranty? Also Ryobi batteries should be compatible correct?

I don't believe batteries are interchangable! Only Rigid batteries.

If they are indeed clearing it out, watch out in the next few months the price drop.

This is GEN5X with top of the line impact and hammer drill.

I have used the warranty many times. Replaced some of my ten year old batteries no issues. You must register the tool I believe within 90 days for the lifetime warranty.

Solid deal, thumbs up op.

For those looking at grabbing one, make sure to note this is not the brushless series. Can't complain at the price of course, but it does make a big difference in terms of power and battery life.

I'm almost tempted to buy this and part it off to keep the batteries lol.

These are not brushless tools in case anyone was wondering. I still might pick up this set because I've been looking for a good deal on a battery powered combo kit for a long time now and this isn't bad at all.

Does the lifetime warranty also cover the tool or just the batteries?

I believe this set is the older gen 5X which is not brushless. That said, these are still quality tools with LSA. But if you want more power, go for the brushless gen 5X or the octane which is almost on par with Milwaukee fuel in terms of performance.

Have you done it recently (last 6 months)? Wondering if they ask to send back the old battery when you call the battery hot line.

Not hot, kinda warm, maybe, but only if you are literally starting off buying cordless tools.

The Milwaukee deals have been way more aggressive lately, causing me to invest more in red than orange.

Ahh, the good old days of Ridgid deals in the past. BOGO MaxSelect bare tools, $99 hammer drill kits with 2 Batts and charger,....etc.

To the poster thinking of buying just for the batts? Don't do it. Look for a Pro Days deal on a battery 2 or 3 pack. Generally April and November.

This kit would be hot at $199. Buy it in 3 months time, and then look for a price halving within the 4th month. Leave the box unopened and return otherwise.

Hang on to your receipt and check the price in store each month. I bought the Gen5x brushless set for somewhere around $400 a few years ago. Went a month later and got it adjusted to the new clearance price of $250, went another month or so after that and had it adjusted again to $125.

Keep in mind that individually purchased batteries tht are not part of a tool set or kit are NOT eligible for LSA!
