Brushed not brushless. Not stating an opinion on it, just as relevant information for those interested. Seems a solid deal.

Great deal and great driver/drill, not fuel or brushless, but cmon they will literally do anything you ask them to do that the fuel ones will do. If you don't currently have a drill or driver, you most likely don't need anything like fuel products, and this would be a great starter set.

The brushless drive non-Fuel kit is also $299 with one 4.0 and one 2.0 battery. Milwaukee batteries ain't cheap and these are better tools so to some this is worth the extra $100:

TBH 1.5 batteries are weak-sauce, shouldn't even be offered anymore. You get the free 2.0 but that's still not that great. IMO should aim for having at least one 4.0 at a minimum.

Or you could just save a ton of money and get the Ridgid brushless clearance set for $150 w/two 4.0 batteries, though most are gone now...

Mmmmm, tempting just for the batteries. I don't really have any need for the drill and driver but could always use spares.

While I agree that 1.5aH batteries are pretty weak and short lived, they do have their place. If you've ever worn a tool belt all day with a drill or impact with the big batteries in it, it get's pretty heavy. Smaller batteries make quite a difference if you are only periodically using the drill.

I've used them both (m18 brushed, and m18 Fuel), and they are completely different animals. These brushed tools aren't anywhere near as capable as the m18 Fuel. Not just in power, but in build quality and also in runtime. Which brings me to my second point: 1.5 and 2 amp hour batteries are really weak for the m18 tools, especially the brushed.

If you're looking for something equally light duty in this price range and Milwaukee branded, look at the m12 Fuel.

I always find that Milwaukee does the same old offers over and over when compared to other brands like Rigid, etc. I'm kind of sorry that I begun investing in Milwaukee sometimes...

Is there a better alternate deal of drill combo at this price for occasional drill/drive work at home ?
This would be my first drill purchase, so hoping to get good advise before buying one.

When you buy a drill/driver combo, you're kind of committing yourself to that entire line of cordless power tools. (Unless you're like my friend, who has some of everything.... chaos.)

Milwaukee makes great tools. M18 equipment is found on every construction site, but they are expensive. So if you were to go and buy a saw, for example, you'd likely pay more for a Milwaukee M18 then you would for Dewalt, Ridgid, Ryobi, etc.

You could also buy adapters and use other brands as well

Oh yeah! I want to know this as well. Can we do the return free item trick with this deal? If so that would be perfect for me since I already have a bunch of Milwaukee stuff but no drill.

Why not? There isn't any rule stating it only works on Ryobi/Ridgid tools with free battery.

See if your store works and report back.

You can, however these cost money, add bulk, and can cause problems. I'm not willing to risk it.
