It's good for the price
If you're a home user it's plenty
If for work I'd look at brushless

its probably good enough for projects around the house, hammer function is a bonus. Batteries are lightweight but not much run time.

if you dont need the hammer function I would just get the ridgid set in the same flyer. Same price but you get two 2.0 batteries plus a bonus 3rd battery and lifetime warranty.

there is also a great m12 FUEL set but currently $250:

$149 would be a decent deal. I would not buy this unless you need it now. I’d say wait for a brushless Fuel sale with a higher capacity battery. 1.5ah is not enough power to keep a hammer drill running very long....

I did buy a rigid combo set, but it did not perform well so I returned it for a Milwaukee Fuel and can’t say enough positive things about it.

This is a $99 buck kit.

Unless you're just starting out at zero tools owned.

Hot at $99

Slightly temperate at current price if you hvave no tools.

Ice cold for pros or collectors.

I bought this kit 4 years ago for $164. I've been happy with it for home use.

I've since expanded my Milwaukee kit with 2x 3ah batteries, sawzall, grinder, circular saw, oscillating tool, and flashlight, all of which are non-FUEL. I've never run out of power or capability, for my basic purposes.

If you're a pro, you already know better and would buy FUEL with 5ah/12ah batteries.

Just to add 1.5 batteries are not strong enough to drill a 7/8” drill bit hole in a 2x4 wood from my tests. Even with a fuel gen 2 hammer drill. 3.0 battery went through np.

Just a FYI

Not really a hot deal. Usually better deals in Mid-summer for Milwaukee kits

Picked up the m12 drill and impact set with 2 batteries and charger for $99 in December. Not fuel but great for around the home so I dont have to carry around a drill with the 9.0 or 12.0

I actually like the 1.5a battery. The weight of the small battery makes it so much easier to do overhead and awkward corner drilling/driving. You will usually have the other battery ready when you are using one of it. I went to the store and try the tools sometimes. It is usually the big battery adding up the weight. The tool itself, e.g. the weight of the drill itself doesnt differ much between the m12 and m18.
Once you are into one brand you can always get another bigger battery when other tools on sale.

But this set looks to be an old model. Wait unless you really need one set right now.
