they could just buy it in store and then return the extra tool for the "max refund value"... unless you're going to give them more than the highest max refund value then it's not really worth the hassle for them. (actually you could do the same, just return the kit)

The drill/driver has a max return value of 145 IIRC. So not too much of a savings for him to do that. The 3/8 ratchet has a max return of 110 or so.

Tempted to dip back in to M12 - I had picked up the mechanic's kit in the fall (Impact driver and a 3/8 Impact wrench) which was exactly the two tool I needed (less need for another drill) but the sockets kept slipping off the 3/8 impact wrench so it had to go back and bought the ryobi 1/2" impact wrench deal. Out of the 'free' M12 tools I'm not sure I value and or need them (as I have many from the ryobi green line). I am upgrading from my blue drill/driver from ryobi 18V. A marine mechanic working on my diesel engine used the m12 ratchet and I was intrigued, but don't know if i have too many uses for it. Wish they included the rotary cutoff tool as one of the giveaways cause that's what I'm looking for...

How do we compare this deal to this Ridgid combo (18V Brushless Sub-Compact Cordless 1/2 -inch Drill/Driver and Impact Driver Combo Kit) : https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ridgid ... 1001528346, you can get free RIDGID 18V Brushless Sub-Compact Cordless 3/8 -inch Impact Wrench (Tool-Only) with Belt Clip (https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ridgid ... 1001528347). I need an impact wrench to do tire thing but also want to get a HACKZALL because i don't have one.

Two completely different sets. No doubt the Rigid has way more power at 18v, but a lot more bulk and weight. I have a bunch of Milwaukee 12v gear and it almost does everything I can throw at it. There are a lot of tool options in the M12 line, a number of lighting options. I have 20v dewalt gear for commercial use and more intense workload requirements.

The Ridgid one is so called "Sub-Compact", not sure how compact it is compared to M12.

as beachbumTO mention completely different sets.

the ridgid is 18v is potentially more powerful than than this milwaukee 12v brushless set.

The question is do you need all that power?

Here is my experience. I have both m18 and m12 milwaukee set. I find for most of my jobs i mostly use m12 set for mostly everything i need. I usually need the situations when i need to drill 7/8" holes into 2x4, m12 drill version not strong enuff. Although the m12 hammer drill can drill into concrete, i use the m18 hammer drill for concrete for bigger holes 1/2 or bigger or if i am drilling concrete holes all day. Even m18 hackzall i use it to cut down 2x4 or bigger woods quicker. m12 hackzall can do it, but takes longer.

Do the M18 Fuel combo kits ever have these free bare tool promotions on them?

I just upgraded from gen 1 non Fuel M12 to Gen 2 Fuel. Difference in power and noise is night and day. If you are a DIYer who uses these tools 3-4 times a year, you won’t care much. If you use them weekly, you will care. Just finished a down to the studs whole home reno on M12 brushless. Not once did I wish for more power. And the light weight pays off at the end of a workday.

The Ridgid 18V subcompact is actually insanely small. Comparing to the M12 fuel drill and driver - the Ridgid sub compacts are both shorter front to back. That's pretty crazy. What's bigger is the battery. If you use a 4ah+ on the Milwaukee's though it's not much different. The Ridgid subcompacts are lighter too - shockingly light. The power for them is between the M12 fuel line and the Ridgid 18V full size. I think they did well with this subcompact line. Other companies like Dewalt and Milwaukee have compact 18V lines - this is Ridgid first attempt I believe.

HD is a joke, i ordered this online because there was no local stock for the combo, but there was local stock for the ratchet, then the store cancelled the ratchet but they still shipped me the combo and of course no price adjustment because the ratchet rings free with an online order, so all i got was the full price combo that i now need to return in store..


That said, i have the Ratchet, Inflator and hackzall, they're all great tools, i use the inflator most, i don't really use the ratchet much because i have a 1/2 stubby impact wrench that does everything better than the ratchet (except fit in smaller spaces)


I love the M12 fuel gear, i swapped over from ryobi18v, the M12 fuel has the same or better specs on most tools, it's a little more money on some of the tools, pretty similar on others.... but where it shines is the size and weight, MUCH MUCH more compact and lighter than the 18v gear, half the size, half the weight (less fatigue from using it all day), half the hauling, with the same or better performance.
in my case, i chose the hackzall freebie. i ordered it online but when it arrived it totally looks like a used item!
i bought another one just m12 hackzall fuel and once it arrives i will make a switcheroo and return the used item they sent me.

Wow that looks really used. Maybe just send them that pic and see if they will make it right.
