It's my only work light and I use it all the time, it's an also great for camping.

The folding light bar and dual source light are definitely better tools though.

i am not into refunding, and like to just buy and keep.
as an outright discount, is this close to lowest it has been?
i think lifetime warranty brands are better but at a premium. better to wait on sale on them? or is Ryobi quality good enough?
for an usual homeowner is brushless worth the premium?
this seems a good kit to have if you dont have any pieces of it.
thanks folks for good deals and discussion as always (:

Wonder if it's worth looking at the 6-Tool Kit as you get a saw and a mitre saw for another $129.

The 4-pack has the Sawzall. The 6-pack come with a circular saw and mitre saw. So two tools for $129 + Tax.

whats a sawzall? i am new to this (:
got it, 6-pack comes with free saw, so yes, 2 more saws for $129 more.
i dont think i need the compound saw though circular maybe more useful than reciprocating. or perhaps all three have different use cases. hope i can grab the circular in some other sale.
would have been nice to just lend or borrow from neighbors. i am sure we all have too much that is rarely used.

as a very casual DIYer, I kinda regret a bit going with DeWalt Brushless (and I would for Ridgid as well) - not that those tools are bad by any means, they're (probably considerably) better than Ryobi's no doubt, but every other tool you decide to buy will cost you a lot more. Extra batteries? a lot more. Tire inflator? A lot more ...With Ryobi, you can make a decent kit - this set + multitool, then one of those with starter pack) you already have like 6 tools, 3 batteries; for the $250ish (considering the cheapest option there, the tire inflator)

but again, very casual...

Recip saw, the one that goes back and forth really fast. It's really good for cutting small trees/branches, demo'ing stuff (took one to an old couch and it made quick work of tossing it) etc.

You really want the multi-tool so no returning that, so it's down to should you buy the 6 pack and return the mitre saw for $ (or keep it I guess) vs the 4+1 pack. Returning the mitre saw would get you roughly $100 back so if you went that route it's cheaper, BUT you have to be lucky enough to find a 6 pack in store since you can't do partial returns of online orders. Also the circ saw in the 6 pack is of questionable use - I have it (bought the 6 during the 20% coupon) and I think the most you can expect from it is cutting 2x4's, barely.

I'm not on refunding either. Did it for an EGO snowblower and it was a bit painful.
I prefer Ridgid for it's lifetime warranty (don't forget to register). That way if I need a battery that is not produced anymore, they will replace the tool. That being said, Ryobi has generally a strong reputation. If it's for casual work, go with either brand. If you do a fair amount of home jobs, go with Ridgid (but Ryobi won't be a bad choice).
Yes it's a good starter kit.
Pourquoi pas?

Man, the RYOBI 18V ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless 4-Tool Combo Kit with (2) Batteries, Charger, and Bag at $199 is nice. Adding in the return buy-back of the Multi-tool: $75.99 the price ends up being $123.01 (pus tax) for a lot off tools vs price. I got in on the RIGID sub-compact $250 deal, but this deal is making me think hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Counterargument: Just a one-time replacement under the LSA for RIGID makes it worth while for a higher initial cost vs buying new from RYOBI.

What's with all the tool deals lately? Love it. I can start building my tool arsenal.

Lots of stuff. It's great for small odd jobs around the house, such a cutting a door jambs for flooring, light sanding, cutting drywall, removing paint, removing rust, removing grout, cutting wood, cutting off nail heads, etc..

You're only limited by the accessories you have for it.

sleepyguy wrote: I would say the only "issue" with buying these is the starter kit has a 3yr warranty, while buying a tool w/battery combo the battery has the lifetime LSA attached to the tool as well. BUT that said some fantastic deals here. The subcompact after battery return is a friggin steal imho. Wish the orbital sander instead of the sheet sander but still a great deal.
Are you referring to Ryobi or Ridgid?
Is there lifetime warranty on Ryobi?
