Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Working We are happy with the warranty and how the tools work.
We like to lite that the tools have when you use them. That really helps to see your mark when cutting and drilling. They seam to hold up well for the lite use we have used them already. Planning on a lot of projects this summer with them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Apwillard1986 Great saw with usable power!
This saw is unique in my tool arsenal as it is the only tool that I bought independent of a project requiring it. I just wanted it and it has since proved itself to be invaluable. This saw is powerful and it is usable! I've used many reciprocating saws that where big, heavy, and intimidating. They make lots of noise and often vibrate things apart before they cut them apart. This saw is a winner because it is so usable. It stays where you put it and goes where you point it and makes quick work of anything in-between. You are going to want a high capacity battery to power it as it does use some juice but that is to be expected. All in all a great tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sniper72 Tough enough for this contractor!!!
I have been using these tools as a home-building contractor for two years now, and bought this set for myself at home. The most rugged, long lasting tools we have used yet, and we have owned both Dewalt and Makita cordless sets. We plan to stay with Ridgid for as long as they keep making this good and quality of a tool!!! FYI: If you plan on brutal use or long range, get the 4.0 Ampre batteries to go with, small ones dont last near as long as they do.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by carpenterchick tools are great too bad bateries are NOT
I just purchased this kit. I have been switching to Ridgid tools for the lifetime warranty. The tools are great, 4 stars, too bad I can't use them. Beware of any kits that come with 1.5 AH batteries. They charge in 15 min. and give you about 5 min. of run time for saws ( one 8' cut in 3/4" plywood) and maybe 10 min. for drills. I considered buying the 3.0 or 4.0 batteries that get great reviews but if you purchase batteries without tools they do not have the lifetime warranty.
When reviewing the tools prior to purchase the product info does not always state the run time(AH) on the batteries.
Any tool that comes with a 1.5 AH battery is only good for housewifes.
Guess I'll go back to Milwaulkee for cordless.
I would recmomend Ridgid corded tools.
*NOTE TO RIDGID COMPANY* Please offer kits with at least 3.0 AH batteries. Kits with saws shouln't even come with batteries if all you offer is the 1.5!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teddy Decent purchase
Instead of buying the five piece combo I bought this set with another combo including an impact, screw gun and radio. All together it was same price as 5piece but I get extra drill, battery and charger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kellry2 Powerful aggressive Recip saw
I purchased this after returning the corded model. The corded couldn't hold a blade. This cordless not only holds the blade but cuts better and faster. I was shocked at how much better this saw finished the job that the corded saw started. Depending on the material you're cutting determines the battery life. Basic wood and nothing heavy the battery will last a good 30 minutes. Heavy material the battery is dead in 10. These are the 1.5 amp/hour batteries. If you need longer run time, then get the 2.0 or 4.0 Amp/hour batteries. This is an awesome powerful saw. You will not be disappointed with this one.
