not using it for the lug nuts or engines or exhaust , j/ for regular furnitures assembly and and putting together some wood hobbies.

i already have both M12 Fuel impact driver and drill driver.
Why not just use the m12 impact with an adapter such as this? https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.14-i ... 57750.html

So I've heard all over the place. I have a good air compressor at home, but mostly want the inflator for road trips, going out in the woods, throwing in the ATV while out and about.

The vacuum would be used mostly for small cleanup's in the shop. Dusting off the workbench, terrorising June Bugs, picking up the grass seed I spilled last night while putting away the summer stuff, etc...

I understand. For assembling furniture or wood hobbies, i would just use hand tools

It's indeed so much quicker w/ power tools, my power tools have variable speed/torque. for furnitures i set to the lowest

Bummed that the caulking gun bare tool isn’t part of the promo given the cost of it compared to some of them on the list that are!

Anyone tried the circular saw and / or the staple gun ? I'm on the fence ! Got a 13 lbs worm drive, a 9 lbs sidewinder and I think I'd appreciate the lightness of the m12 saw for smaller projects.

The circular saw is my only disappointment with my m12 tools. Your pieces have to be fully supported on both ends of the cut and you have to go very slow otherwise it will jam. I guess I’m expecting too much when compared to a corded saw. This is with a 4.0 battery.

Didn't even know anyone made 12v circular saws. Even 18v saws can bind up pretty easy.

Makes no sense since the flyer said it was good until next year. Bit of a bait and switch.

Like most promotions, I'm sure they have it in the fine print somewhere about 'limited supply', 'the right to end the promotion without warning',....

I was at Home Depot tonight with a friend and the deal is still active. My friend purchased a rotary tool and vacuum and received the 2-pack XC 3.0 batteries for free. Now, the rotary tool only qualified for the 2.0 pack (not the XC 3.0 pack) and would not ring through at the till so we went to customer service and they marked down the battery pack for $0.01. It is an easier sell right now as the 2-pack XC 3.0 batteries are marked down for $99 in-store. The 2.0 battery is still listed at $59 so on paper, the XC 3.0 battery is "cheaper". YMMV depending upon the store manager but at my Home Depot, they are pretty good about keeping you happy.

Hmmmm... deal was still live last night both online and in store, though today it's no longer showing on line. Haven't been in a store yet to see what's happening there.

I went to 3 different home depots.

HD Aurora didn't have anything displayed with the offer.
HD Richmond Hill North didn't have anything displayed with the offer.
HD Markham North had a display showing the 2.0 and 2x3.0 battery offer.

I ended up buying the m12 fuel circular saw and the m12 hackzall. I got the 2x3.0 batteries.

I'm all set for tools now.

M12 fuel impact drill 4.0 and 2.0 batteries
M12 fuel impact driver 2x2.0 batteries
M12 fuel circular saw
M12 hackzall
2x3.0 batteries.

Now I have to tell the wife. LOL.

Also, that new M12 (yes 12 volt) stubby impact has a ridiculous 250 FOOT lbs of torque.
I want it just so I can do tire changes with a 12v tool. So don't need but want.

It's pretty impressive. Saw a guy on YouTube taking apart a rusted diesel engine almost exclusively with the stubby. Now only if they come out with a right angle impact wrench like Ingersoll Rand...
