Makita 18V combo set + FREE BATTERY
$448

This is the cheapest i've seen this set. I've been watching it for a year and I finally pulled the trigger. + you get a free battery as well.


Best image I could fine, you don't get the flashlight and the kit comes with 2 batteries + an additional 3.0ah battery

Please put the price in your thread title. It saves the rest of us time. You can do it by going to "Edit" then "Advanced".

Nice Kit. Enjoy it. Covers the major bases.
Makita has a long history and solid performer.
Too bad they do not get as much lime light as the other brands at the home improvement stores.
They have a enormous tool line in the specialty tools which we never see on the shelves :(

My money is also on Makita. They make a great kit. I use an impact driver and drill daily for work, estimate about 500 screws a day into 1"ply or hardwood. My Makita driver lasted about 5 years before the trigger went, silly employer decided to switch to the big yellow machine and I figure I go through one every 6 to 8 months.
The build quality on the Makita is far superior to Dewalt.
However in all honesty I use Rigid at home due to the evet lasting warranty.

Totally agree. No one ever talks about Makita, but my dad is a big fan, which is why I am one, too.

Thanks!

The guy at Home Depot highly recommended Makita as well, though he said he would go with rigid, just because of their lifetime warranty.

I'm hoping these guys last me a long time, considering I won't be using it nearly as much as you.

500 screws is about 63 screws per hour for an 8 hour shift... wouldn't it be easier to use a nail gun instead?

Screws vs nails--a whole new discussion.
Some people just want the assurance of greater holding power.
For decks I personally prefer screws over nails.
I know... I know... Time is $ for a contractor but I'm just a DIYer >)
